Bone The Great Cow Race
By Jeff Smith
I would recommend this book for boys and girls because it is a mystery book and because it doesn’t have so much violence. It is about Gran’ma Ben racing with her cow and Phoney Bone trying to get rich by setting up a stand to guess who will win.

Two books I recommend are Dying to Meet You & Over My Dead Body By Kate Klise. I recommend these to teachers , moms , dads and boys and girls over eight years because it is a tiny winy bit scary and sad. It is about a boy named Symour Hope, a ghost named Olive C. Spence (a girl) and an author, Mr. Grumply.

A great book I’m reading is Dolphin Song by Lauren ST. John. This book is about a girl going on an ocean voyage with her class and they fall off the boat and dolphins came to save them because the girl had some type of power with animals. I recommend this book to kids and any one who might like to read a book like this.

I have a book name Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The author of this is Jeff Kinney. His was the creator of the Poptropica.com. He is the bestseller of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. This book is about the kid name Greg Heffley, he is the kid who always wrote about what he did in every grade. He had a small brother name Manny and big brother name Rodrick. He had father too but I don’t know his name and I don’t know his mum name, too. This book is very funny, you have to read it!!

I’m really enjoying a book called diary of a wimpy kid it written by Jeff Kindey.
I think it’s sometimes really funny but some times a bit just like any other book. I think it’s a bit like the Dork Diary but the main character in Diary of A wimpy kid is a boy and in dork dairy it’s a girl. I think that if you’re in grade 4
Or grade 3 it’s a good book because it’s a chapter book with pictures and I would recommend it to girls and boys.

I am reading a book call “BOY”, the Author is Roald Dahl. It looks like a book about Boys but is actually about Roald Dahl’s life and was quite interesting. The first part was talking about Roald Dahl’s father and his Uncle , how do they found their job and a sort of things like that.Then it talks about the whole life of Roald Dahl.If you are interested about Roald Dahl’s life do read the book . I would recommend to you.

Do you like scary books? I usually don't, because I read before I go to sleep, and I don't want to think about the monsters under my bed!

But I'm reading a great book called "The Shadow on the Stairs" by Ann Halam. It's scary, but not too scary!

So if you like spooky books, have a read of this one!!!
