Friend Friday #188 (Matylda, Bright, and Tender by Holly M. McGhee)
Hi! I'm Sally and I read the book called Matylda, Bright, & Tender by Holly M. McGhee.
I thought this book was sad because Guy was super nice and he died for Sussy.
My favorite part in the story was when Matylda finally ate because that was a good thing and made me happy.
The character that I liked best was Guy because he was a nice guy! (Ha, get it)
I think the author wrote this book because she wanted to both entertain with a great story and inform about how to raise and take care of a gecko.
I would recommend this book to my friends because they would like it, but most of us are already reading it in our class.
Reading to us is fun/boring because it's nice but if it's not interesting then it's boring. Of course most people want to read interesting stories.
*This is our current "Breakfast with Books" book club selection.
*Sally was one of the first readers to complete the book.
*All the reviews are giving "rave" reviews about the story and characters.
*We Skype with the author on May 26th.
*Be sure to check out our first set of trailers in yesterday's post.
**On a side note, this was one of my favorite middle-grade books I read during this school year.
**I highly recommend it. A "must-read"!
