My favorite book is "Star Wars." I like the book because of the trooper and the Jedis.
My second favorite story is "Lego Star Wars." I like it because it's very interesting, the characters are very quick and very hilarious.
Those are all my favorite books. I like to read to myself and my little brothers.

My favorite book is "Mustang." This is why I like it: because it says how they were made and when they started to make them. I really like this book because I want to get a Mustang when I grow up. It also shows how they made them and which are better than others. This is why I like this book so much.

My favorite book is "Mitilda." I love this book because of the creativity they give to make the characters alive. My favorite character in Mitilda has to be Mitilda. Mitilda is smart, funny, and a little crazy at some points. I love that Ms. Honey is so interested in Mitilda. I love that she does not give up on her for anything. Ms. Trunchbull is the worst, though. She hurts innocent kids for bad reasons. Yet the story feels as if it involves you like you're Mitilda. Ms. Honey, Ms. Trunchball, and Mitilda's parents all put in a story told over and over again. The feeling of this book makes me say for you to read it. This is my favorite book. Thank you for reading my summary.

I like all kinds of books. I can't choose in between. But my favorite book is "Skippy John Jones" because it was lots of color and it's so good and it has English and also Spanish and I love that kind of book. In the book, Skippy loves a dog and a cat and I love cats and dogs.
My dream is to have lots of dogs and have all of them in my house because I'm going to work hard and have a big house sort of like a machine but not quite.

My favorite book is "The Secret Garden." The book was given to my mom and my mom gave it to me.
I like the book because it is about a girl who was very spoiled but then got better because she went to Yorkshire. The girl met a boy and he was always thinking negative. The girl made him better because she found a garden and the boy liked the garden.
The garden looked dead but the girl met a boy named Dickon. He knew a lot about the wilderness and animals. He had animals and he always saw them when he went to the moor.

The book I like is "Hurry, Hurry." This book is about a woman who takes care of a little girl. The girl's parents are going away for a day or two. So the woman was in a hurry to take the girl to school. She was in a hurry. She was stuck with glue so she couldn't move. The little girl tried to get her out but she couldn't do it by herself. She ran for help. The girl found some help to get the woman out of the glue. She walked the girl to school but she still had a little glue on her shoes.

I like many books but my favorite book is "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tu Lane." It's a very interesting book. It has similes, metaphors and more. The book is about a porcelain rabbit that goes on many adventures. It never stops getting exciting.

I have lots of favorite books. I don't know what to choose. The books that are my favorite are "Junie B. Jones," "Horrible Harry," "Cat in the Hat," "Harry Potter" and long princess books. I guess my most favorite book is "Horrible Harry." It's about a boy that almost does horrible stuff every day. Mostly he does it to a girl named Mary. He likes a girl named Songlee in second grade. Now he's in third grade and the students that were in his class last year are in his class again. Well, my second favorite book is "Junie B. Jones." It's a girl that is very small and doesn't really know a lot of stuff. The one that I'm reading is called "Junie B. Jones is a Beauty Shop Guy." But my most favorite book is "Horrible Harry," but I finished all the books. I like it because I have been reading it and I like chapter books because they're my most favorite books ever.

My favorite book is called "The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket." There's a whole collection of books - there are thirteen to be exact. I haven't read all of them. I'm on the sixth book so far. All of the books are about three children whose parents died in a fire that occurred at their home while the orphans were at the beach. The books are interesting because they're about their misfortunes they have had, but they don't have a very good ending.

My favorite book is "A Dog Called Kitty." "A Dog Called Kitty" is about a dog that got its name by acting like a kitten. The story is also about a young boy. When he was little, a dog bit him and now he owns Kitty.
I like this book because it's a fun and classic book to read. This is a fun and classic book because it's real. The book is not only real but it's just a fun book to read. It's a story about a small puppy that got its name by how it acts. This dog is not a normal dog, it's an interesting dog. It's a dog named Kitty. This is just a great book. It won an award for just being such an amazing book.

My favorite book is called "Captain Underpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman." This book is funny and interesting. Wedgie Woman gives wedgies to kids she does not like. But when Captain Underpants comes and defeats her she could not give wedgies anymore and now the city is safe from her and glad Captain Underpants won her. She is now in jail and won't get out of jail.

My favorite book is "Harry Potter." What I like about this book is it has a wonderful journey so you can see different animals, people like a monster or a wolf. You can make magic, see wizard/spell books. Some books have that but not like this book. Many things about this book are that there are people getting brave, fighting for good or bad or saving the people you love or want to help. But the Harry Potter books have secrets that aren't revealed. It is not real but it is really special to me and it is a book that has great magic.

My favorite book is a chapter book called "Sister Split." It is a good and interesting story about how sisters got separated by their parents' divorce. Each one goes with a parent but before they were just separated they went out for dinner and thought what was best for them. Then one girl says that she wants to get divorced from her sister. But they still see each other on Saturdays and Sundays one goes over or the other one goes over. Finally their parents make up and get remarried and live together again.

My favorite books to read will have to be "Goosebumps" by R.L. Stine. The reason I like his books is because they're really interesting. That's why I like Goosebumps.

My favorite book is "Jack Sparrow." It's about Jack Sparrow as we all know from "Pirates of the Carribean" and it talks about his teenage stowaway life. I've only read 1,2,3, part of 4, and 6. In the 1st book it talks about Jack assembling his crew and looking for a famous island. In book number 2 it tells all about a secret serin that Jack and his crew have to find. In book three they have to destroy a pirate named Left-foot Louis. In part of 4 they find Cartes and Jack is learning how to control the sword of Cartes. Finally in book 6 they find out that first-mate Arebella finds her thought-to-be-dead mother. I like these books because I love pirates but there's a lot more books for Jack Sparrow.
