"If you are willing to read a funny book that has jokes, pranks and comic strips, you will like reading `Garfield's Twentieth Anniversary Collection' by Jim Davis. It is my favorite because Garfield pulls pranks on his owner Jon." -- Timothy Kim, Joppa View Elementary

"I enjoyed reading `Kidnapped' by Robert Louis Stevenson. In the book, a young boy is taken from his home and he must endure the dangers of the sea. He finally escapes to Scotland only to meet mean highwaymen. This is the beginning of David's dramatic journey to safety." -- Brandon Rideout, Choptank Elementary

"I really enjoyed reading `Gooseberry Park' by Cynthia Rylant. I liked it because it had many animal characters such as squirrels, a dog, a bat and a weasel. My favorite part was when Stumpy, a squirrel, returned to her home and friends in Gooseberry Park." -- Madeline Sample, St. John the Evangelist School
