Destiny's Book Report
I Like To Fly
Who was my favorite character?
What was the book about?
A young boy named Roy gets in a parachuting accident and becomes stranded on a desert island. While there he meets a creature named Frum who has some wonderful berries. Frum shows him all kinds of neat things. But is it all real?
What was my favorite part?
My favourite part was the end. I was very pleased with the ending. I won't spoil it for you but I will say it left me thinking.
What I like about this book
It's very colourful and it very imaginative. I like how well written it is.
What I don't like about this book
The text on some of the pages was difficult to read. As for the story, I don't have any complaints. I liked it a lot and would read it a hundred more times because...
this book is top shelf!
Today I'm going to start posting my reviews in a new format. Book report format!
I think this new format will make it easier for you to get information about the books I review. This way we won't be wasting any time. So let's get reviewing.
"Uh, Destiny?" Faith nudged me.
"Isn't that cheating?"
"Isn't what cheating?"
"You're going to be posting your book reports."
"I am not. Don't tell them that!"
"Oh, Tiny." Faith said and shook her head.

Twinklinka is the story of a beautiful doll who waits on the store shelf for a very long time because she is waiting for the beautiful girl of her dreams who looks like a princess. But once she sees the girl and the girl buys her along with several other dolls she realizes that this may not have been the best thing for her. Luckily for her, she doesn't get stuck with the little girl forever. Will a little beggar girl be a better doll mother to Twinklinka than the little girl of her dreams?
Why did I love Twinklinka? Because the book teaches you that appearances aren't everything. Twinklinka holds out for what she dreams about but it ends up being nothing like she imagined. The girl who buys Twinklinka (along with several other dolls) ends up being a horrible monster who is mean to her dolls. Is it because she isn't loved? The book doesn't really tell us that. But it does teach us that her outward appearance does not relate to her inner appearance. The girl is spoiled and awful. This book made me feel a bit sorry for the girl as well as Twinklinka because from the story I imagined the girl doesn't get to spend a lot of time with her parents. That's so important to being a kid!
Then Twinklinka gets a different home with a different girl. Will she be nice to Twinklinka? I guess you will have to find out for yourself. You can get Twinklinka by Janaki Sooriyarachchi for free at Free eBooks and read it on your computer. I recommend it because this book is top shelf!
