Hey readers. We were just in Budapest and had an awesome time. We were all super excited to explore the city so we went on a walking tour along the Danube River. Our guide was great and we learned a lot. Did you know that Hungary is one of the oldest countries in Europe? It was founded in 896. We also went to the healing Turkish baths and soaked in the water for hours. We were sooooooo pruny when we finally got out. The baths were in an old mansion and have been there for over four hundred years.
BOOK NAME: Even Monsters Need Haircuts
This book is about monsters…and lots of them have hair! So they need haircuts. This little boy goes to a barber shop that his dad owns and gives the monsters a haircut when his dad’s not there.
They can only give the haircuts at night when nobody’s there. So Dracula wakes up the boy and when he’s a bat he flies with him to the barbershop. Dracula turns back into a person and he gets the first haircut. Soon the barbershop is full of monsters–ghosts, mummies, and monsters with three heads.
He has to cut all kinds of different hair. Cyclops just has one really long hair that he needs cut. The wolfman has all kinds of hair, all over his body, so he needs a big haircut. Frankenstein’s hair is cut straight across the top. The boy has to braid Medusa’s hair blindfolded because if he looks at her he’ll turn to stone. And one haircut he doesn’t even know what to do…a skeleton doesn’t even have hair!
A person comes in and all the monsters start hiding because they can’t let any regular people see them. So they all hide (in the worst hiding spots) and the person sits down on the chair and says, “Can you take a little off the top?” And then he takes off his entire head! And all the monsters laugh.
This book would be good for kids who like monsters…and who want to be barbers. This book is good for ages 5-7. It’s a picture book with really good pictures.
BOOK NAME: Bunnicula
AUTHOR: Deborah and James Howe
I’m back with a book called Bunnicula. This is a series of books, so if you read this one, I think you’ll like the others.
It’s about this family that goes to the movie Dracula and they find this bunny in the movie theater. They take it home and they name it Bunnicula.
This story is mainly about this cat named Chester and a dog named Harold. Chester likes to read and Harold is pretty much just a dog – he likes to sleep.
Some strange stuff starts happening. At the house where Bunnicula lives, all of the vegetables start turning white. But nothing else…just the vegetables! Chester starts being suspicious (Harold…not so much). Chester reads a vampire book and Bunnicula matches every single thing about a vampire. Harold and Chester come up with a plan…
I’m not going to tell you the rest…because I want you to read it. This time, I’m going to do something different. If you’ve read the book, tell me who’s your favorite character and why. My favorite character is Harold the dog because he does all these flopsy things…he sneaks into the pantry and steals a chocolate cupcake (his favorite).
If you haven’t read the book, tell me if you think you’ll read it.
See you next time!
BOOK NAME: Twilight
AUTHOR: Stephenie Meyer
I know DogEared fans have been requesting a review of this book. It is one of the most popular books ever. So here it is.
Bella Swan just moved from Tennessee to a rainy city in Washington State called Forks, where she had decided to live with her dad for a few weeks. At Bella’s new school she discovers this creepy family, the Cullens, who like to keep to themselves. One of the kids name is Edward. One day Bella nearly gets hit by an out-of-control truck! Edward somehow saves her by stopping the truck. Soon she finds out that the Cullens are vampires! Bella and Edward fall in love with each other but it’s not long after when a bad vampire comes into town trying to chase down Bella. The Cullens have to save Bella, and save the rest of her family before it’s too late.
I LOVED this book!!! I did cheat and go see the movie first. It was a long book but totally worth it. I am now reading New Moon (I went to go see that movie first too!). I would definitely recommend this book to kids who are in middle school because it is a hard read. There are four books total in The Twilight Series and they have already made two of the movies. Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are the others.
I am a Team Jacob fan! Write back if you are a Team Jacob or a Team Edward fan!
