Henry and Mudge

"In the summer, Henry and his dog Mudge liked to go on picnics."(P. 8). Henry and Mudge go to picnics! They prepared delicious food for picnics. Sounds fun!! They play on the beautiful green hill. Green leaves, flowers, and beautiful tree make Henry and Mudge lively.
By reading, I think that I become to be lively like them. These days the weather is very cold, so I feel a beautiful atmosphere of summer first time in days. In addition, I didn’t go to picnics for a long time, so I will go to picnics with friends in this spring.
And a boy and a dog slept, together, on the green hill in their time. (p. 48). This is the end of this story. In this scene, Henry is wearing a crown made by leaves. It looks very nice! The leaves crown is suitable for summer picnics. I want such nice crown when I have picnics. I can’t make crown by leaves but can make it by flowers. Therefore, I will make a crown in my picnic day! I am looking forward to it!
If you want to feel lively atmosphere, I rea…

Backstage Pass

"Hugo is your hero. You started to sing and play guitar because of him." (p. 4).
You are the main character. Your favorite band, The Martians, is coming to town. You and Julie, your friend, are going to the live of The Martians.
You can choose some the end. I chose one of the bad ending. I and Julie tried to pass backstage of The Martians but Julie couldn’t pass.  I could pass backstage and walk to see Hugo. Hugo, who is a singer of The Martians, have long-time girlfriend. However I found Hugo is insincere. He is kissing another girl!  How fool he is!! I was very disappointed by him. Passing backstage is danger. I ran and hid to see my hero. I took a risk for my hero but there was no here. I couldn’t restrain my anger. Thus I sold the information about Hugo’s first scandal. I didn’t regret selling the information but it made me sick. If I read this book again, I want to choose good ending to feel good.

"But I don’t tell anyone about them. I’ve decided to write my feelings here in my diary."(p. 10).
Mia Thermoplis lives with her mother and her cat in New York City. She is an ordinary girl but it’s not true. Actually, Mia is a princess of Genovia!
I think ordinary girls dream to be a princess so Mia will be glad to know the truth. But she isn’t glad. In fact, Mia doesn’t want to be a princess! I was really surprised to her anger and sadness. I didn’t understand her feelings. However I was understanding little by little to read the story. She will lose her name, friends who know her true character,  and even ordinary girl’s life because of her birth. She loves her life at heart. It is naturally to be angry and sad. I understand dream is only dream so dream looks beautiful. When dream comes true, it isn’t filled always happiness. Mia faces truth and comes to term with it. Mia is suffer from many things but tries to find her own way. Mia’s way is so hard for 14th girls so I wan…

Princess Diana

It started from Diana’s background and the other story. It was so complicated. She met Chirles and got merry with him. However, he was cold to her because of her way to raise their children, so she divorced her husband. After that, she worked hard for charity. She was loved by many people for that. Unfortunately, she had a car accident and died in a hospital, but she was a great woman in the world.

Ameria Bedelia's Family Album

“We want to have a party for you. We want to meet your family. ”
“Now that is nice,” said Amelia Bedelia. “Who would you like to invite?” asked Mrs. Rogers. (p. 5). Mr and Mrs. Rogers want to have a party for their houseworker, Amelia Bedelia. Amelia is glad to hear that and then she shows her family album to choose guests. Amelia introduces her family looking the pictures. Mr and Mrs. Rogers seem to understand Amelia’s introduction, but actually, they misunderstand until Amelia gives more information to them.
I like Amelia’s introduction because in the sentence, there are many funny expression. Amelia’s introduction makes a play on words. For example…
“This is my daddy” said Amelia Bedelia. “He is a telephone operator.”
“Then he helps people make calls,” said Mr. Rogers. (p. 7). And then…
He does not!” said Amelia Bedelia. “He operates on telephones.”
“I see,” said Mr Rogers. (p. 8). This is the first play on words. After reading this one, I laughed and thought it is like Japanese  …
