Do you like fairies? If you do, this is the book for you. The fairy Bethany needs to get her ribbon. Rachel and Kristy help her. My favorite part is when the goblins dance, because it is funny. Read this book.
Have you ever read any long, exiting, or adventerous chapter books? Well, if you read and like those sort of books, be aware this book has all three. My favorite part was when Harry Potter meets up with Tom Riddle because they have a fight and fights are my sort of thing. If you like famous wizards, breaking rules, or fighting for people's lives, then this book will be filled with wonder and excitement in your opinion.
Melba Liston was a great person. She was sometimes lonely. When she was lonely sounds comforted her. When she saw the trombone she wanted, her mom bought it for her. Then taught her how to play it. Then she showed her grandma how to play it. Then she fell in love with playing.
Michael Jackson loves animals and had some. His hair caught on fire because of the cool flames that spark. Even though Michael's dad criticized him, Michael said good things about his dad. He died because had too many pills which are like drugs. He helped a lot of people. He sang pop songs that people like. We still like his songs. I think you should read this book if you like to read about rock stars. P.S. It's from the Orem Public Library.
Harriet was born on March 10, in the 1820's. She was born a slave in Maryland.
