Ottoline goes to school

Ottoline and Mr.Munroe

Cover of Ottoline goes to school

Ottoline lives in Apartment 246 in the P.W. Huffledinck Tower But everybody calls it the pepperpot Building because it looked like one.her parents traveled a lot and she had to stay home so she had someone to look after her. Mr.Munroe. He is a bog monster that came from a Norway Bog.Ottoline and Mr.Munroe were on a Walk and they were going to visit the turtles in the turtle pool.And when they got there,they met a girl named Cecily Forbes-Lawrence III and her cute little Patagonian pony Mumbles. One day Cecliy came over for tea and told Ottoline about her school The Alice B. Smith School for the Differently Gifted. Ottoline wrote to her parents and this is what it said

Dear Ma and Pa,

I think it is time for me to go to a proper school. My new friend Cecily Forbes-Lawrence III goes to the Alice B. Smith School for the Differently gifted and is very good at sipping tea. Mr.Munroe and I would like to discover our different gifts so we can help you in your collecting when we grow up

Lots of love,O

But when Ottoline gets there people are saying that the school is haunted. Is it or is it not haunted? I really like this book because He put a lot of animals in it.So if you like unusal books then you will love this book

Walter The Story of a Rat

This book is about Walter (a rat) and Amanda Pomeroy (an old lady). Walter doesn't understand why everyone hates him. Walter really wants to make friends with Miss Pomeroy but is not sure how. Every night Walter sneaks into the library and takes one of her books to read but he always returns them before Miss Pomeroy wakes up. Walter is a very smart rat he knows how to read and write but he doesn't consider taking food from her kitchen and reading all her books stealing after all he always returns her books. This is one of my favorite quotes - it's sweet and sad:

From the time he was an adolescent, humans had thrown stones at Walter, shot guns at him, and repeatedly tried to poison him with some strange-smelling food, which he had been wise enough to avoid. They had kicked at him, screamed at him, and once - at the very sight of him - a young woman had fainted. Walter had never been able to understand the horror he and his relatives aroused in humans. These, after all, were the same people who kept hamsters and guinea pigs as pets. The same children who loved white mice. These were the people who fed squirrels in the park and walked tiny dogs on leashes. As far as Walter was concerned, animals were animals - all of them equally important.
If you like sweet books about animals then you should really read this one. And if you want to learn a little bit about rats, you will learn a bit here and here.

Surprises According to Humphrey

Humphrey's a hamster and a class pet who lives in room 26. He loves all the kids in class with him and he loves going home with them on the weekends. He also Has some silly problems that you and me know how to solve easily but hamsters are small and can't always do what we can do. There are 3 other books in the series I think this is the forth book. It doesn't matter if you read them in order though I had a little trouble figuring out that Humphrey was a class pet. If you don't like complicated then you should read the books in order. If you like funny and confusing books then you would definitely like this book.

The Mystery of The Green Cat

Adrian and Andy did not like the idea of a new mother. Their mom had passed away two years ago. Jill and Carol aren't too sure they're going to like it either. Mr.Dallas (Adrian and Andy's dad ) got married to Emily(Carol and Jill's mom). The house on the hill above them is a beautiful old mansion with two mysterious old ladies living in it. Jill feels a mystery floating about and wants to solve it. I was so excited to read this book because it's set in San Francisco and we're going to San Francisco next month!If you enjoy mysteries and exciting books then you will love this book. My mom also reviewed this one. You can check it out here.
