Hobin Rood

by Suzy M. and Kayley K. ©2011

Tonce opon a uime, Hobin Rood lived in Ferwood Shorest in his hree touse. His best friend Jittle Lohn was out hunting one day when his niece, Bune Jug, appeared at his door! She screamed, “The giant agical malligator is chasing me ’cause I ate his malligator baby eggies!”Hobin yelled for Jittle Lohn, who rushed out of nowhere to help his best friend and his niece. The three grabbed aows and barrows and ran ninto the ight.

Tonce they reached the malligator, Hobin tried to leap over it, but it jumped on top of him. Hobin pulled back his aow, let go, and shot his only barrow into the malligator’s heart.Bune Jug squealed with delight and ran back to her touse. Hobin and Lohn took the malligator back home to eat for supper.

                   They lived appily aver hefter!

This kind of story is called a spoonerism. You mix up the letters to make the story sound funny. This is a story Kayley K. and I wrote at our school. Thanks for reading! Illustration:

Hungry Monkey: The Review

26 03 2011

Before I actually start reviewing this, I need to tell the readers that I liked this so much that I read it 3 times in row. On to the review!

This book is about my cousin, Iris and her funky eating habits. It is full of recipes and cooking tips. It is an excellent book and I can’t think of anything more to write about it because if write any more, I will just be writing the book online, and that would not really work. So this book is about food. And family. And how to bring a lot of snacks to preschool. See? I’m already saying too much about the book! So read Hungry Monkey by Matthew Amster-Burton and write your own review- before mine gives away too much info!

Doodlebug: A Novel in Doodles

25 03 2011

Doodlebug by Karen Romano Young is a book about Doreen/Dodo/Doodlebug Bussey, her sister Maureen/Momo, her mom and dad, and her friends Elizabeth (Cootie Catcher) and (Magic) Marco. Dodo is moving from L.A to San Francisco because she was expelled from her old school because she  put Ritalin, her A.D.D medicine on her classmate’s desks. She goes through losing a cat, detention, prismacolor pens, and a rebellious sister-and decides that she does not want to move again.

Doreen Bussey has a bad record. She is not good at paying attention and has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. She has made friends with Marco Pinho and Elizabeth the Cootie Catcher. They help her put her sister where she should be-the choir!

This book is completely doodles and scribbles. I am not sure who did all the illustrations, and there are probably lots of people besides Karen Romano Young that worked on the sketches.

I think the message in this story is that you should do what your heart tells you to do and not let other people tell you what to do. I give this book 4 1/2 stars because there were a few parts that I did not like.

My Awards: Music Section

12 02 2011

These awards, like my MVAs last year, are for music. And movies. And books.

Taylor Swift: Mine

Glee Cast: Somebody to Love

Katy Perry: Firework

To vote you  listen to the songs on YouTube (click the artist’s song), but the videos wouldn’t play on here because they are VEVO or have Sony Entertainment parts.

Oh yeah, BTW, YouTube decided that you have to have a google account to use it, so you may need to try iTunes or Napster or something like that, so links probably don’t work right now.
