This is a great book! It's an epic fantasy-adventure story that you would never put down. If you like adventure books, this is definately for you. It's another masterpiece by Kenneth Oppel

What a great book! It's different than all the other books. It doesn't have same plot and ideas as all the others. Kenneth Oppel has used his talented writing skills to create characters that are innovative and interesting to read about. It's a little bit slow at the beginning, but becomes more interesting near the middle. So keep reading!

Airborn is a pretty good book, but it is very hard book for people that are using English for their second language!!

I thought your book was GREAT! My favourite part was when the pirates were fighting in the ship. The scary part was when the bird bit Mattís friend in the leg. The funny part was when Matt went inside the closet.

Airborn is a wonderful book. If you start to read it you will never want to put it down. Airborn is very emotional. It is about a young man that is very determined to carry on his family tradition.

If you have ever wondered what would have happened should history have taken another turn, this is the book for you. It's fast paced nature sends readers deep into the plot. An awesome page turner, that is really impossible to put down after you've started.

Anne is a very talkative girl who is an orphan. She gets adopted by Matthew and Marilla by mistake and they decide to, maybe, keep her. Read this book and the other books from the Anne of Green Gables novels and get satisfaction from these reads.

Anne of Green Gables was a cool book I also liked the movies! Even though I feel sorry for Anne but I also do not think it's fair that parents abandon their children!
Pen name: ~*ANGEL*~

This book is essentail to everybody who can read. Many people don't read this becasue they think it is for babies, but that is false. It is challenging but wonderful. it makes you laugh, it makes you cry and it will touch your heart forever. However, Anne did grow up a little to fast. Please read it, I have never had a better friend then Anne.

I think that Eoin Colfer is an amazing author. My favorite character is Mulch Diggums. I hope this author comes out with another book. I hope I get to meet such of an amazing author.
Pen name: Smitkid1

This book is a very interesting book to me. I like it because the characters are described well and it really grabs you as soon as you start reading it. I'm hopin to read The Eternity Code (sequel to Artemis Fowl). Eoin Colfer is an amazing author! My favorite character is Holly Short. I like her because she has a good personality. This book is very good and you should try it if you like books about magic. If you like this book you might want to try Artemis Fowl: The Artic Incident.

This is a story about three children who are in for a never ending life of misery (well at least in the series). From lossing their parents in a mysterious fire, to living in a dingy mansion with the evil Count Olof is just a small taste of things to come. If you think your life was not worth living, then you have obviously not read the series of unfortunate events. If you read these books, you may have nightmares and fears as long as you live, however, reading these books will indeed change your life in one way or another.

This book has a lot of adventure and as the title says it has many unfortunate events so if you like a book with a happy little elf frolicking with happiness this book is not for you! You will be shocked to see how many time sthe three Baudelaire get out of a mess Violet, the oldest sister, Klaus, the middle brother and Sunny, the youngest sister of the three get into, and of course the bad guy Count Olaf adds to it all! So if you like books with lots of flowers and happiness please don't read this!

Lemony Snicket is a good writer. The bad beginning is one of my favourite books in ďThe Series of Unfortunate Events. It is the beginning that interested me so much. It is about these very rich kids then one day their parents die.

I liked this book because I learned that bats eat moths. When they bite the moth, the moth's wings fall off like a candy wrapper. I like the way the pictures are drawn. They look like real animals.
