TenNapel, Doug. Cardboard
This was yet again a graphic novel. It was interesting and i loved the idea for this! It was so interesting to read/look at the pictures with all the plot twistes and new ideas that kept getting introduced. My favorite character was definitely Marcus who was spoiled but got better I loved watching his evolution of behavior. I also thought the art in this book was AMAZING!!!
Ella, Grade 5
Green, John. Kitten Construction Company: Meet the House Kittens
Kids who like cats or kittens will like this book. It is unusual because the kittens build a fantastic house. It’s weird, interesting and odd.
May, Kyla. Diary of a Pug: Pug’s Snow Day
Bub sees snow. He also sees smoke and sparks in the air and he sees a monster next door. What will Bub do!!!
Rin, Grade 4
Runton, Andy. Owly: The Way Home and the Bittersweet Summer
It was really cute because owly has no friends because he is a owl and everyone is scared of him but he makes 3 friends and he likes to help.
