"In 'The Ant Bully' by John Nickle, a boy named Lucas is bullied by another boy, Sid. Just as Sid picks on him, Lucas picks on ants by squirting them with. The ants shrink Lucas to be as small as them and teach him a lesson: not to bully someone smaller than you."

"The book 'Demolition Derby' by Jeff Savage is a terrific book. The story is about cars crashing into each other to get the drivers out of the race. One reason I like this book is because I'm interested in demolition derby cars."

"My favorite book is 'New Tricks I Can Do' by Robert Lopshire. I like this book because it has a spotted cat. My favorite part is when he shows tricks to two kids."
