The Grace Hurricane’s #CBR4 Review #5: Flat Stanley, Flat Again! by Jeff Brown

Stanley, Flat Again cover(Grace is an 8-year-old junior cannonballer and her reviews are typed by her mom, Sara.)

This is the sixth Flat Stanley book. I like Stanley, Flat Again! because it has a weird body part in the story called the OBP, the Osteal Balance Point. The doctor tells him it’s a “little known anatomical feature,” and that’s what making Stanley flat. How his OBP got hit was when he was reaching for a book and his brother tossed a tennis ball at him to catch. He turned around to catch it, but the book he was grabbing fell on him at the same time the tennis ball hit him. 

One of his classmates gets trapped in a collapsed building and Stanley was the only one to get her because he was the only flat person at half an inch thick, and if someone who wasn’t flat tried to wriggle through to where she was, the whole building could have collapsed. Flat Stanley saves her.

When he turns back to his original self, not flat, how that happens is when his classmate elbowed at the same time he got a pat on the back. Then, he was round again!

There are other books in this series too.

The Grace Hurricane’s #CBR4 Review #4: The Big Adventures of Majoko 2 by Machiko Fuji and Tomomi Mizuna

(Grace’s reviews are typed in by her mother, whose reviews you can find at Glorified Love Letters.)

Majoko and Nana love travelling together to strange new places. In this volume, they visit memorable spots like the shiny Land of Mirrors, the Land of Snowmen, and the Land of Toys. I like this book because I like Japanese books. I like reading Japanese books because I like reading the books backwards because manga in Japan is read backwards. Manga is a type of Japanese comic.

My favorite part of this story is when they go to the Land of Snowmen. I like this part because I like snowmen. I like rolling the snowballs to make snowmen.

(Grace is just about 8 years old and got this book from her local library.)

The Grace Hurricane’s #CBR4 Review #3: The Black Belt Club #1 – Seven Wheels of Power by Dawn Barnes

(illustrated by Bernard Chang)

I read The Black Belt Club #1 – Seven Wheels of Power and it was a good book because I like karate. This book is about a black belt club who have to go on a mission to this tree called the Tree of Life and find the seven wheels of power. A bad guy called The Death Master Mundi has stolen the wheels. The book is part paragraphs and part comic book, and I liked that.

My favorite character was the boy Max because he was new to the black belt club, and by the end of the book, he learned how to use his animal power, the bear. I’ve read this book three times. I am going to try and read other books in the series.

(This review was by a 7 year old Junior Cannonballer, and her review was typed by her mother Sara, whose site can be found here.)

The Grace Hurricane’s #CBR4 Review #2: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Sky High by Dave Morris

(Grace is reciting her review while her mother, Sara H., types.)

I read the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sky High book, and I thought it was a good book. It’s about the ninja turtles and their leader, Splinter, and their battle with Shredder because he got caught in some sort of space ship program and he might have an evil plan.

My favorite part was when the turtles stole Shredder’s transporting thing so he couldn’t transport his Foot Clan ninjas. I liked that part because I like it when bad guys are defeated.

My favorite ninja turtle is Leonardo because he’s a good team leader. My favorite character from the whole thing is Splinter because he is good at training them.

The Grace Hurricane’s #CBR4 Review #1: The Mouse and Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary

(This review is recited by 7 year old Junior Cannonballer Grace, typed by her mother, Sara H.)

I read The Mouse and the Motorcycle, and it’s about a mouse named Ralph who finds a motorcycle in a motel room, and then he has to find an aspirin for a boy who was sick at the hotel. They don’t have any aspirin so he goes all over the hotel without getting caught. And then he returns it to the boy safely.

My favorite part of the book was that in the back of the book, there are questions that Ralph answers and some of those questions I would ask, so I liked knowing his answers. Ralph is a brave mouse.
