The Amazing Bike Ride is a book about a fifteen year old boy named Lorin who has only 10% of vision and wants to go on a long bike ride to the beach, which is far beyond the mountains. At school, Lorin tells his friends his idea, but they doubt him because of his small percentage of vision and don't think he can do it. But Lorin takes no notice of them, what they think he can and can't do, and chooses to do the ride anyway. When Lorin comes home from school, he informs his parents about his plan, and they encourage him to do it. His dad offers to ride in the truck alongside Lorin whilst on his bike, and Lorin takes him up on the offer. The ride takes a few days, but Lorin proves he can do it and makes it to the beach! When he returns home to share his achievements, he is acknowledged by the school principal in assembly, about his choice to persevere with something despite what others say, and still achieve success!

A young boy named Leroy is bullied by an older girl in gr 7 called DJ whilst on a bus travelling to and from school every day. Leroy's older sister Ruby is aware of the bullying along with Mrs Wilson, Leroy's teacher because he told her but, no one else knows. One day, when Leroy got home from school, he was sent to his room by his parents, because he was in a bad mood. When this happened, Ruby stood up for Leroy and mentioned that he might have been in a bad mood because he was being bullied on the bus and that Mrs Wilson also knew. Their parents reacted by calling Mrs Wilson and getting Leroy to come back from his room. Not long after the phone call, Mrs Wilson arrived at Leroy's house with a book full of hidden messages and explains that the book will help distract Leroy from the bullying. The next time Leroy is bullied, he uses the book to distract him by reading aloud one of the hidden messages. This helped him to get through the bullying moments and DJ reacted by stopping in her tracks and almost immediately, the bullying stopped. Leroy and his former bully then became friends, DJ seemed to leave the bullying behind her and the bullying soon became a distant memory!
I think the best thing about the book is
That Ruby stood up for her little brother Leroy and unknowingly helped put an end to the bullying.

it is about animals causing mischief around the neighbourhood.
I think the best thing about the book is
bad pets hall of shame is an amazing book for anyone aged 8 plus, even adults. Bad pets, written by Allan Zullo, has creative boarders around titles of a new category. there are many categories such as `wolf in a sheep's clothing for brazenly stealing humans possessions" or `the pig out for eating things that shouldn't be consumed'. it is a non-fiction book. it has been written about problems over the years. it is great how the author used jokes about the animal he was writing about, like `lama drama'. in most chapters he uses the abbreviation for news stations so it is a little annoying you cant tell which station it is. this book is amazing, I love it.
