About Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane

In this book, Crawlers kidnapped Boots. They stole her while Gregor was in Central Park in New York City. They took her to the Underland by going through really steep stairs and tunnels. They took Boots to get Gregor to come so that he could kill the Bane. The Bane was a white rat, and rats are humongous in the Underland because everything is humongous in the Underland. The rats eat meat which means they eat people.

Gregor agrees to go after the rat. Gregor and his group have to go in a boat and then ride in the boat but on their way they met with giant squid that attacked the boat trying to get Gregor. Near the end of their trip they found the giant sea serpents that tried to eat them. The serpents woke up because the rats pushed boulders into the water to wake them up.

You should read this good book. I'm not usually a book fan but I still really like this book because of all the exciting adventures.

The Funniest Comic Strip - Calvin and Hobbes

"Scientific progress goes 'boink'?"

Calvin and Hobbes is the funniest comic strip in the world. The kid is Calvin and the tiger is Hobbes. Hobbes always begs for tuna fish. If my mom was Calvin's mom, she would be screaming right now because 2 o'clock in the morning Calvin woke his mom up to ask if people grew from spores. In another comic strip, his mom got all dressed up with lipstick, earrings, and her best dress. The second she walked out the door, Calvin sprayed her with the hose. And then when he was walking away, he was holding his butte saying, "What a grouch!" Hobbes, whenever Calvin opens the door from school and says I'm home, pounces on him and tackles him. They even have a secret club house in a tree called, "Gross, Get Rid of Slimy Girls!"

Whenever Calvin asks his Dad how something works, his dad says "It's magic." Once he turned on the light and said, "It's magic." His mom asked, "What has your dad been teaching you?"

Calvin and Hobbes is the all-time best comic strip in the world!!

Ball By Ball - Tennis

Tennis is a fun game! In tennis, you hit a ball with a racket. When you are alone, you hit it against a backboard. So far, I learned six different kinds of ways to hit the ball.
Tennis is the best.

Catching Deoxys

My Favorite Pokemon

My favorite Pokemon are Scyther, Deoxys, Kabutops, and Scizor.

Scyther is one of my favorite because he is as big as a person, he has really sharp claw cutters, and he has two wings on each side like a bug. Scyther’s strongest moves are: Air Slash, X Scissor, Sword Dance, and Bug Buzz. Scyther is a Bug Flying Type Pokemon. If he was on a strong level, and we were fighting Water Type Pokemon, I would send Scyther out into battle.

Deoxys is my most favorite. One of the reasons is that he can transform into four different guys: attack form, defense form, speed form, and normal form. The second reason is because he is really strong and has really strong moves. The third reason is because his hands can separate into four different arms and hands. The fourth reason is because he beat Rayquaza. Deoxys is a Legendary Type of Pokemon. That means that he has an extra boost that makes him a million times stronger than other Pokemon. He would basically almost always win, except if he is fighting another Legendary Pokemon.

Kabutops is my second favorite because he is almost exactly like Scyther and Scizor. He is a rock water type of Pokemon. In the Fire-Red Game, you can get him from a fossil. You have to bring the fossil to a building to bring him to life, but before he is a Kabutops you have to evolve him from a Kabuto.

Scizor is the last, but not least, favorite. He looks like he has the same kind of hand as a crab, but he has the same wings as Scyther. He is red and he is a Bug Steal Type. His strongest moves are: Iron Head, Giga Impact, X Scissors, and Sword Dance. I would use Scizor when I am facing a Water Type Pokemon, but I would never use him against a Fire Type because fire is super effective against a bug steal type like Scizor.

In my opinion, these are all really cool Pokemon .

Walking with Cavemen is a movie that I watched. It is about cavemen and where they lived. They lived in Africa and then they moved. Africa was an island that crashed into a big piece of land and made mountains which changed the weather. There were a bunch of different cavemen groups. One group made the first tool, and they scared away a lion. Another group caught a wooly mammoth. It was an interesting movie.

Click for caveman game!

My Pet Leperdy

I have a pet leopard gecko named “Leperdy.” He has a head in the shape of a diamond. He has light purple blobs on him. His belly is soft as a feather. His back is really bumpy. He has polka-dots on his skin. He is squirmy when you hold him. When you aren’t holding him he stays still. Leperdy makes me happy because I love him. He has a cute charm. Dad helps me clean the cage and feed him. His cage resembles a desert. He comes from the desert. There is a crack in his cage. His tongue isn’t sticky like frogs but it strangles crickets and pulls them in. He doesn’t just eat crickets; he eats other bugs like mealworms. We made a system for him to answer questions. If he licks his right eye that means yes, if he licks his left eye that means no. LEPERDY IS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS!

Archaeology is digging history. They dig carefully by using brushes, not shovels. They use the same tools that dentists use. They use grids to keep track of where stuff is. They find old trash like the solid gold model boat from 100 BC. They found it in a field in Ireland. They use what they find to understand history. Like the gold boat is priceless because it tells them that they could use gold and they made boats to travel. Archaeologists find out a lot about ancient people from long ago.
