Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan


I am trying a different kind of review today. This is a Tagxedo word cloud. It is similar to Wordle, but you can dictate the specific shape a word cloud takes. This example is using the text from the School Library Journal review of Red Pyramid, Book 1 of the new Kane Chronicles series by Rick Riordan. If you love his Percy Jackson and the Olympians books, you will want to check out Red Pyramid, his new series that centers around Egyptian mythology. Tell me what you think about the Tagxedo! Even better, can you figure out why I chose the shape of the bird for this word cloud? Send me a comment.

Keep Reading! Mrs. Hembree

The Graveyard Book Student Review by Will


I like this book because it’s funny and adventurous. Bod (the main character) doesn’t know what it’s like living with people.  He tries to help the people (which are really ghosts) that live in the grave yard.  Sometimes he does well, sometimes he doesn’t. He gets curious about things like the history of the graveyard. The setting is in a graveyard. He’s being taken care of by ghosts in the graveyard. He has also been given the freedom of the graveyard which means that he can see in the dark and he can go places where other people can’t.  I also like this book because it has mixed emotions to it, humor and sadness.
