Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey

The principal is Captain Underpants and he turns into Captain Underpants when people snap. Also, there is a giant talking toilet and he tried to eat everyone. I liked this book because it is funny. It is a quick read, too. You should read it!

Student Book Review: Warriors: The Fourth Apprentice by Erin Hunter

I kind of like this book. It was an interesting topic. Then again, Erin Hunter always writes interesting topics. This book was about three cats that have special powers. They thought there was a drought, but really beavers were blocking the stream into their lake. So the cats had to work together.

People who like fantasy adventure would like this book because it is exactly that: fantasty and adventure.
