Review of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”

“Diary of a Wimpy Kid” Review by: Shakeelah, age 17

Greg Heffley is the main character of this series. The book is his diary where he writes about what happens in his life. Greg writes about his best friend Rowley, who acts a little childish which embarrasses Greg. Greg also writes about his big brother Roderick who is really mean and his little brother Manny who always gets away with what he wants. Basically, when you read “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” you get a glimpse into the life of a pre-teen. This book is packed with humor! It’s a great book.

Reviews of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Review by: Abrarul, age 9

“The book I am writing about is Harry Potter and The Philosiphers Stone and it is by J.K. Rowling. Firstly there is a yonng boy whose parents are dead. Before they were dead they were wizards. Whoops I forgot to tell you that they were killed by an evil wizard. But the poor boy didn’t know any of that stuff until a tall wizard came and told him. Join Harry on an epic adventure making friends as fast as enemys. This book’s strength is explaining what is happening. My personal response is when Harry got in trouble I felt like how he did. I would recommend this books to a friend who likes fantasy or magic.”

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Review by: Jennifer, 10 years old

“There is a boy named Harry and he found out he was a wizard by his 2 wizard parents. I love how Harry is amazing wizard and he’s like an inspiration to me like he’ll never give up. There’s no bad things about the book for me. I would recommend this book to anyone who love magic and like some potions. People who like being sneaky would like this book.”
