Book Reviews for Kids, by Kids.
Book: Gregor the Overlander
Author: Suzanne Collins
Review by: Natalie V. age 11
Gregor the Overlander is the first novel by my favorite author; Suzanne Collins (best-selling author of the Hunger Games). I first heard about her when my friends suggested the Hunger Games to me, which I read the whole series in a few weeks because they were so good. Gregor the Overlander is a less violent book, but I still don’t recommend it for those who do not particularly like books with lots of action and a little bit of very detailed tragedy.
This book is about an 11-year-old boy named Gregor from the Overland. The Overland is where all of us live, but he is from New York City to be precise. He has two little sisters named Lizzy and Boots, who he has to take care of during the summer. When Boots falls down an air vent into the Underland, Gregor immediately jumps in to save her. They land in a world filled with royalty, giant cockroaches (that Boots calls “beeg bugs”), giant spiders, giant rats, and giant bats all of whom can speak.
This book was so good it had me reading it almost non-stop. I suggest it to almost everybody, especially people who like other books by this author. Gregor the Overlander is available at the Lebanon Library and as an electronic resource.
Title: Small Persons with Wings
Author: Ellen Booraem
Review by: Natalie V. age 11
I just finished reading Small Persons with Wings! Have you ever seen a Small Person with Wings, also known as the Parvi Panneti? (They hate to be called fairies!) Mellie was five years old when she saw her first Small Person. Fidius was her best friend until she went to school and told everyone about him. She wanted him to come to school with her, but he was so mad that he refused, and he left her a figurine and a frostbite to remember him by. He left for 8 years, and returned in an especially dreadful situation. If you are a girl ages 11-14 and you like adventure/fantasy books, then you will love this. If not, then I don’t suggest it. This book is available at the Kilton Library in West Lebanon.
