Born to Run by Michael Morpurgo

 'Born To Run' is a story written by Michael Morpurgo.It is illustrated by Michael Foreman.It was first published in hardback in Great Britain by HarperCollins Children's Books 2007.HarperCollins Children's Books is a division of HarperCollins Publishers ltd.This book was printed and bound by CPI Group (UK) Ltd.This story is a tribute to Simon,Alison,Rose,Amy,Hazel and Otto by the author Michael Morpurgo.

This is the story of one dog which is a Greyhound.There was a boy named Patrick.He studied in St Thomas' Junior School on Porthcressa Road.He always walked to school along a canal, past the brown sauce factory which somehow smelled both sweet and sour at the same time.His head teacher was Mrs Brightwell who had angry at the tip of her nose.She always shouts at Patrick for being untidy or running in the corridors or day-dreaming or using the word 'whatever', which he most probably used. Mrs Brightwell also hates excuses.

One day when he was going to school,on the towpath there was a swan which usually blocked his way to school.He tried to shoo it away but it didn't .Suddenly he heard a squeaking of puppies.He looked around and then saw a sack in the canal.It was not just floating but as if it was being propelled from inside.So,he thought that something must be there and he removed his schoolbag and jumped to the canal.He swam and saved it.The water was almost cold enough.At the towpath,there was Mr.Boots who was a lollipop man.He was waiting for Patrick to come.After reaching the bank of the river,when they opened the sack they saw five greyhound puppies.When he reached school with the puppies in the sack along with Mr.Boots, Mrs Brightwell was in the assembly area along with the children of the whole school.Mr.Boots told the whole thing happened, to Mrs Brightwell. She appreciated him and also the children too.After all the applause was over and assembly was dismissed,he looked into the sack and only one puppy was so cute that with cute eyes.He asked his parents that can he keep this one puppy as his pet. After so many restrictions they allowed him to.He was so happy and he named it as 'Best Mate'. He started taking Best Mate to the park every evening.Best Mate used to run after other dogs and children in the park.He ran across the bank of the river and also watch the duck and swan swimming in the river.One day when he gone for the rounds,Best Mate didn't came back.Patrick thought that he would come after half an hour,but he didn't.He complained to Police Station.They searched for him everywhere but didn't get him.After that...Best Mate became Brighteyes and then Paddywack. Read the story and find out !

When I was reading I was very curious to know what will be happening next.There will be more anxiety as you read. My friend Archana suggested me this book as she love dogs the most.She is a dog lover.

I thank her for suggesting this book.Such a wonderful book.I loved this book very much.Super story.This is a wonderful book for those who love pets and those who think to have a pet.It's a nice book.

Published by: Pegasus
RDC 

I took this book because the cover picture is so nice.
It is a story about a fisherman who daily comes near the river and catches some fishes for  to live with his family. The fisher man was a poor person, but he had a condition he will throw his fish not four times a day. And one day he threw net for 1st time he got only some rubbish., the 2nd time he didn't get anything, 3rd time nothing and that time he was praying for god to get something at the fourth time. But at this got nothing but a vase. A golden vase he thought of making the vase open with his knife so he could get some money or something else. 
He opened it a genie came out of that vase. It was a horrible genie. The fisherman was surprised. He asked who are you. The genie replied "I am a genie"."I rebelled against the king of genie. To punish me, he shut me up in this jar and he had me thrown into the sea." He also told that, "I thought of giving him a wish like to make him the richest man for the generation but no one opened the jar to release me, and in the second generation I vowed to give all treasures of the world to the person, in the third  generation, I  promised to make that person a king and to be always with him, grant him three wishes daily in the fourth generation. I vowed that if anyone would release me, I would kill him to choose in what way he wanna die but in the above three of the generation no one came, in the fourth generation you came so I need to kill you now. 
The fisherman was afraid he suddenly thought for a plan and told that genie, "OK. I will die but before that I want to know how can you from this jar even your feet cannot adjust in this. The foolish genie to prove this fisherman went into the jar again in a smoke form and the fisherman closed the jar by the change- the genie tried to get out from the jar but it failed.
I liked the story very much.

Secret Seven: Secret Seven on the Trail

Author: Enid Blyton
Publishe: Hodder Children's Books
No. of Pages: 138

I openly say that I din't like this book as I liked Famous Five. I took this book just to try. It is a book for kids, not for me.

Even though I don't favour this book, Enid Blyton is my favourite author. She had a lot of imagination. She shares her imagination by writing lovely novels for children. She had one of the beautiful minds in the world. Internal beauty is more beautiful than external beauty.
I won't read another Secret Seven book. But I recommend readers of junior classes to try this series. They will love it.

THE FAMOUS FIVE: FIVE GO ADVENTURING AGAIN

Famous Five: Five Go on Adventure Again by Enid Blyton

This is a very exciting book. Everybody is timid of thieves entering at night, but the Famous Five are not. They even arrested the thief.

Enid Blygon is a familiar author who wrote many books based on adventure and mystery . I like her books very much. She is a lovely writer who writes lovely stories. She is like a mother who narrates night-time sories. I like Famous Five the best. They are so courageous, I don't even have 50% courage they have. They are the real teens who enjoy freedom by camping in the forests, deserts etc.

The stories of Enid Blyton resembles real life. I have emotions when I read the book. I thank the author for writing such a story. I hope I can be one of the Famous Five and face adventures.

കൊച്ചുണ്ണി സത്യസന്ധനും നല്ല മനസുള്ളവനുമായിരുന്നു. തന്റെ നാടിനും നാട്ടുകാര്‍ക്കും വേണ്ടി പോരാടിയ കൊച്ചുണ്ണിയെ അവന്റെ കൂട്ടുകാര്‍ തന്നെയാണ് ചതിക്കുന്നത്.

'The Story of My Life' is the autobiography of Hellen Keller. She lost the power of eyes and ears in very small age because of a brain fever. She wrote this book when she was studying in a college. She was born in America on June 27 1880. By the help of her teacher named Miss Sulivan, she learned everything in the world. Her father's name was Captain Arthur Keller and her mother's name was Katherine Adams Keller. She also had a sister named Mildred. Leaving this book, she has written 10 books.

This book is published by Orient Blackswan for Class 10 but all can understand it.

This is a wonderful inspirational book for the children.

Manual for climbing mountains

Librarian sir talked to us about a book by famous writer Paulo Coelho "Like the Flowing River". Paulo Coelho is a Brazilien Novelist and his famous work is the 'Alchemist'. A lesson from the book was told by sir.

Manual for climbing mountains
Choose the mountain you want to climb.
Know how to get close to it.
Learn from someone who has already been us there.
When seen up close dangers are controllable.
The landscape changes, so enjoy it.
Respect your body.
Respect your soul.
Be prepared to climb one kilometer more.
Be happy when you reach the top.
Make a promise.
Tell your story.

It was interesting. I want to read this book.

MY FIRST DAY AT LIBRARY

In this new academic year I've sworn that I will take many books from the library and surely read it fully in a day and earn more library points how much I can. I was very eager for getting the new library card. I wish that, if I could get it today itself. The next day during the library period, when I came to know some were collecting the books, I started writing fast, in the book. Sir, was busy doing work, but I, kept on reading "Champak". Many of my friends, asked me "why are you reading?” but I kept quiet and I kept on reading. I was happy reading books and the thoughts, poems that were framed and were stuck on the wall. I have also sworn that I will submit my books on the correct time.
