This book gave me curious reaction which a spark into me because so far a boy found a dog but know what quite yet to do with it. Which made me curious.

I think this book will be very interesting because this is realistic-fiction, so therefore it will be entertaining.

Jahnais, 11, on Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.

Hamlet made me question life and death, the use of cosmetics, and the sanity of a person.

Hamlet is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. Even though a lot of people died in the play, it taught me values that no one has ever taught me before.

Young, 16, on The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare.

I was very surprised by the endings of a lot of these stories. There wasn’t as much death as I thought.

I’m a little saddened by the fact not all the Grimm Brothers stories are in this book, but still enjoyed them all.

Raquel, 15, on Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm edited by Philip Pullman.

My reaction to this story was positive and it had me on the edge of my seat it was a page turner.

The story got better in the end, like where the climax started.

Ariana, 13, on Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
