Never Babysit The Hippopotamuses
by Doug Johnson

This book is about all the things you should and should not do to keep the hippos good while babysitting them. I liked the part where they had a nighttime snack and ate lots of popcorn and when they did cannonballs into the bath tub. They also like when they had pillow fights. Me and my siblings like to have pillow fights too. They are fun.

The Unwanted Stories Of The Syrian Refugees
by Don Brown

The book. "The Unwanted Stories Of The Syrian Refugees," by Don Brown is a very educational and great book. I think this graphic novel should be read by everyone because this novel talks about the Syrian Refugees and all of the suffering they have been through and what they're going through now. This problem should be solved there are many Syrian refugees right now that are suffering because they cannot leave. These people have been suffering for years and everyone should know about this and be educated about this topic ,so I would give this book a 5/5 rating because it is a very good novel.

The Hunger Games Catching Fire
by Suzanne Collins

View in Library Catalog



This is the second book in the Hunger Book series and I enjoyed it for the most part. This book felt a bit more boring than the last one in the series, but did pack a lot in the second half. Katniss and Peeta pretending to be in love and Katniss really actually liking Gale was something which was an issue and I enjoyed how it became an issue. The 75th Hunger Games concept was really cool to me with the past competitors. The rebellion group and the 13th District that we find out about are both very cool and can relate to America now. The ending is that part which really made me like this book, just so much new and turns that I would not have expected like District 12 being gone, Peeta not making it out, them landing to District 13. It made me so hyped and anxious to read the next book in the series because I was ready to see what takes stage next in this battle between the Capitol and rebels.

However, a conflict arises amongst the gods and Zeus' lightning bolt gets stolen. This incident is blamed on Poseidon because there was already a pre-existing feud between the two. Percy Jackson must go on a quest in order to prevent a war to break out amongst the Gods and to prove that it is not Poseidon who Zeus should blame. Percy Jackson realizes that it was actually one of his friends, Luke, who stole the lightning bolt because he wanted a war to break out amongst the gods since he thought that the Gods had been in power for too long. Percy ends up battling them and he was able to attain the lightning bolt on time. Poseidon talks to Percy Jackson and he calls Percy, "the true son of Poseidon." Back at camp, Luke ends up telling Percy that he is working for Kronos, a Titan, but Luke decided to let a scorpion sting Percy, with intentions to kill him. However, Percy manages to survive.
