"I love 'The Best Friend' by R. L. Stine because it is a horror book. It is a scary book. I like reading it at night; it gives me the chills."
-- Natasha Petroff, Highlandtown Middle School
" 'Ramona the Pest' by Beverly Cleary is a really funny book. I think it was funny because Ramona yells in a funny way, and Ramona was so excited she was going to be in a Halloween parade. She was going to be a witch. She always said, 'I'm the baddest witch in the world!' All that stuff made me laugh really hard. "
-- Caroline Dushel, Gunpowder Elementary
"I read 'Bears in the Night' by Stan and Jan Berenstain. In it, the bears heard something outside their window. They went to see what it was. It was an owl. The owl was whooing. The bears ran back to their beds and went to sleep."
-- Joshua Carpenter, Our Lady of Hope / St. Luke Elementary
