The scream museum
The Scream Museum

The Scream Museum is realistic fiction. The setting is mostly in a Museum. The main characters are Makenzie, Jesus, P.C., Tom, Dr. Farr, Dr. Speigelmanand, Dr. Gardner. The problem is Tom is accused of killing Dr. Farr. The conclusion is Tom was hypnotized by Dr.Speigelman, but Dr. Speigelman is an imposter and killed Dr. Farr.


I thought the story was boring in the beginning but towards the end it got good. I think kids that like mystery’s will like this book.

Fifth grade safari
Fifth Grade Safari

The Wacky Facts Lunch Bunch (Dave, Max, Liz, Johnyand Jennifer) have gone on a school field trip too the newly renovated zoo. As the W.F.L.B. try to learn about the animals there, the school bullies Nat and Rado try to terrorize an innocent turtle.


In my personal opinion, I think the book could have been better but, I really liked the main climax point (where Nat and Rado try to kill the turtle) Overall the book is interesting in most part and gives facts about animals. I think that someone who likes animals a lot would love this book.
