"My favorite book is 'The Ghost in the Mirror' by John Bellairs. I liked that book because it has some suspense. For example, the book had an old man go out in the stormy night. The old man was an important character. That not only left the characters in suspense, but left me in suspense. Another reason why the book was cool is it was science-fiction and it was supposed to be scary."

"My favorite book is 'No Milk' by Jennifer A. Ericsson. It is about a little boy trying to milk a cow. But the boy tried everything and there was still no milk. So he gave the cow a little pat, a squeeze and a tug and the cow gave milk, which made the boy very happy."
