"I think 'Monster Blood III' by R. L. Stine is a good book because it's scary. I like this story because my mother gave me this book. I wish I could be in this story because I can beat up the monster named Evan." -- Joel Gregory Leith Walk Elementary "I liked the book 'Bartholomew and the Oobleck' by Dr. Seuss. The best part in the book was when the Oobleck got bigger and bigger. I liked the part when the bell couldn't ring. I liked inside of the castle where the story took place."
