Matilda is a very smart young girl, five and a half years old. At age three she taught herself to read, even though the family kept no books but newspapers and a cookbook in the house. When she goes to school, her teacher is a very nice woman named Ms. Honey. Ms. Honey immediately figures out Matilda's genius and together they figure out how to defeat the evil headmistress, Ms. Trunchbull, (also Ms. Honey's aunt) once and for all. This story is full of twists and turns, and I would highly recommend it to anybody who loves Roald Dahl's books.
Mr. Lemoncello's Library is a very exciting book in which the heroes of the last book in the series, Kyle, Akimi, Miguel, and Sierra return in a rematch with bookworms from all over the country. The Hometown Heroes, as they are called, win some and lose some, and it is very hard to tell who will be on top. Will the Hometown Heroes come out on top, or will they suffer defeat by a child genius by the name of Majory Muldauer? ...Or something else entirely? I would definitely recommend this book to people who love action and suspense. You don't have to be a bookworm to love this book!
(I would suggest reading the first book first as the story might be hard to follow if you don't.)
Saving Winslow is a cute book about how a sickly little newborn donkey transforms into a thriving, happy LGD (Livestock Guard Donkey). Winslow and the rest of the cast (Louie, Mack, Nora, etc.) are all very believable, and this book is very to-the-point yet not too curt. It will leave you rooting for innocent, sweet Winslow, through all of his hardships and troubles. <SPOILER ALERT> he even saves the life of Louie's next-door neighbors by braying when he smells smoke coming from their house. This book is kind of short for what it is, but I would definitely recommend it to anybody who wants a rich chapter book that won't take you weeks to finish.
