Naked Bunyip Dancing by Steven Herrick
I really enjoyed reading this quick-witted illustrated novel by Steven Herrick. The novel is structured as a series of short poems from the perspectives of school students in a Year 6 class. The author’s ability to give each student an individual voice is outstanding and I found the illustrations by Beth Norling very complimentary to the text.

These books will take you to another world! Follow two young children into mystical worlds of witches, time travel, polar bears and alternate universes.

The books (called the Dark Material Trilogies) deal with concepts such as philosophy and physics. They are adventurous and action packed and my all time favourite books.

If your looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next, I definitely recommend these three!

It's about this girl that was traded for gold to be a slave, and she has a master that was really mean and didn't take care of her properly and the master has two dragons and one of the dragon is going to take her thorough a wonderful and mystery adventure to run away from her master ,and to start a new life, with a strange dragon stone and the dragon, but for now she doesn't know it yet.

Young Samurai by Chris Bradford

I liked this book because its really interesting. Jack Fletcher wakes up in a roadside inn, wrapped only in a dirty kimono. He has lost everything, including his memory.

Relying on this samurai and ninja training, Jack realizes the Ring of Water is the key to his survival.

But with only a washed-up ronin-a masterless samurai- for help, what will Jack manage to find? What will he lose?

And what will he have to sacrifice?...

Woolves in the sitee by Margaret Wild

I liked the book because of the illustrations and the dark impression of the book were terrifically amazing. It is about
the a boy who lost everything and he was only left with a room to live in. He became well aware of the wolves, which
scared him everytime the shadows of a wolf- like creature showed up. He warns many people especially Ms. Randinski...
What happens?
Does the boy grow out of his fears?
Be sure to read this book!

I highly recommend this to people who love thrillers, etc...

jana
In the future, the world is split into districts. Each district is responsible for something: District 12, for example, handles coal and mining.
All these districts are controlled by the Capitol, where lives the president who is always very, very cruel.
The Capitol, to show the Districts how weak they are and how little control they have, hosts the Hunger Games.
Two tributes are selected from each district to participate in a game. An arena is set up that looks like a natural surrounding {a jungle, rain forest, desert, etc..) Here, the tributes have to try to survive and kill each other off. The one who is the last standing wins and earns food and gifts for their District, and also can never be selected for the Games.
Once chosen, you can't get out of it unless someone else offers to go for you, which no one is entirely willing to do.
To get chosen, your name is written on a piece of paper and put into a small bowl, and is chosen at random. Only children are put once {I believe you're safe at the age of 18}, but poorer families are forced to add their children's name multiple times because the more you put your name in, the more grain you get for your family. Of course, this means you're even more prone to be selected.

Hunger Games is about Katniss Everdeen, a young girl who lives in District 12. Her father died at a young age, and from then on she had to take care of her younger sister Prim and her shocked mother. She snuck out under the electric fence that borders the District, and hunted for food using her bow and arrow.
At the Reaping, which is the time of day where they select the tributes, Katniss's sister is chosen to be in the Games. Knowing that Prim knows nothing of survival, and Katniss is more skilled in hunting, Katniss offers to take her place.

The rest of the book is about Katniss preparing for the Hunger Games and the Hunger
