Unicorn Wishes by Carol Barton

This is not a book I read recently, but someone asked for a Rainbow Fairies-like book so here it is!!!!!

Unicorn Wishes by Carol Barton is the first of six books in the World of Wishes series.

Maddie O’Neil has freckles, deep carrot coloured hair; she just recently got braces and her classmates know it.  The day after she got her braces, she came home from school in despair.  That’s when a boat appeared in the stream that runs through her yard.  She traveled on the boat to find the magic world of Zavania, where wishes come true.  While there, she met Sebastian, apprentice to the Wish Master, and helped him grant a baby Unicorn’s wish to go home.  However, they first had to rescue it, and that meant taking it (and its mother) from the clutches of the terrible Ice Queen.  My favourite person in the book was, of course, Maddie.  She was a female hero of sorts.  I was around the age of 5 when I read this book and it is very good for that age.

P.S: I’ll try to post on Tuesdays!

Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing

Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing by Judy Blume is the first book of five in the Fudge series, so if you like this, there are more!

Peter Warren Hatcher is a normal 9-year-old 4th grader, until his new little brother Farley Drexel Hatcher (known as Fudge) is old enough to walk. From eating flowers to acting in commercials, Fudge will truly bring a laugh to readers who have younger siblings. This book is funny because of the things Fudge says and does. For example, he jumps off a jungle gym ‘I believe I can fly style’ because he’s chasing “the birdies!” But when Fudge does something TRULY awful, questions arise. Can Peter forgive Fudge? Will Peter finally get a dog? And will Fudge finally be good? This is a book I read when I was small(er!) but I still “reread” it!

P.S: Feel free to comment! I’d love some feedback, or suggestions for books for me!

The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles

The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews Edwards

Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles

The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles

Sorry I haven’t posted yet!  I was a little distracted!  The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles is about siblings Ben, Tom, and Lindy Potter (No connection to Harry Potter), who meet Professor Savant at the zoo.  He tells them all about the magical world of Whangdoodleland and the creatures that live there, and asks if they would like to visit.  They all decide to go, but the way to Whangdoodleland isn’t easy! They have to see things in an entirely different way. And once/if they make it they have to get past evil, “oily” Prock, the sinister prime minister of Whangdoodleland ! This is a good book for girls/boys. The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles has a lot in common with The Neverending Story so if you liked that try this!

This Totally Bites!

This Totally Bites! By Ruth Ames

This Totally Bites! is one book in the Poison Apple series, but you don’t have to read them all! However I recommend you do. Their stories are not connected in the least, except they are all fairly scary!

Click the picture to buy the book!

This Totally Bites! is a book about 12-year-old Emma Rose Paley, a girl who has always felt slightly different from her parents. Like most parents, Emma’s like daytime, sun, bright colours and pastels.  But, she loves night time; storms, dark colours and red (NOT pink). One day, her Great Aunt Margo visits from Romania, and Emma has a realization: Could she be a real, un-dead, vampire? This is a good book (and series!) for girls because that’s who it’s about: girls! I honestly didn’t have a favourite part either!!!  (I normally do.)

P.S: There is a very unexpected vampire!

The Neverending Story

I have read too many books to write about them all so I thought I would start with one of the latest books I have read – The Neverending Story by Michael Ende.

 

The Neverending Story

This book is about a boy named Bastian Balthazar Bux who, like me, loves to read.  I don’t want to give away everything, especially not the ending, but he gets “The Neverending Story” from Mr. Corianders bookshop.  He becomes a character in the book while reading and has to save the world Fantastica and the characters inside.  The beginning was very slow.  It took me a while to get interested in it.  But keep on reading, it is worth it!  It is a well-written book that is very descriptive. My favourite character in this book was the Childlike Empress.  This is a good book for both boys and girls.  My parents always encourage me to watch the movies after the book. Usually I like the books better but this time the movies (parts 1 & 2) were pretty cool too!
