First place
My favorite book is "The Borrowers."
I chose this as my favorite book because I love to read chapter books with the genre fantasy.
This is a great fantasy book because it talks about these three little leprechauns who live under the kitchen floor.
In a friendship way, the human being becomes friends with Arietty Clock. The Clock family loves to borrow materials to build their house.
Ms. May, the baker, finds the human being giving things to the Clocks.
Then, the rat catcher comes and tries to catch them. Hopefully, they escaped into the rain gutter and lived there.
Read the second book to find out the rest!

A book I love (and I'm sure you do too) is "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyer.
I love this book because of the amazing details and description. One of my favorite parts is when Edward, an amazingly handsome vampire, brings Bella, a regular teenager, to the school prom.
The description is so detailed that it does not let go of you. It makes you pick up the book and never let go.
Twilight is part of a saga of four books, "Twilight," "New Moon," "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn." Out of these four books, "Twilight" is my favorite.
Stephanie Meyer is amazing at descriptive writing. She is awesome at grabbing ahold of someone's heart and does not let it go.
Twilight is my favorite book and if you haven't read it yet, I hope you will soon!

My favorite book is "The Alchemist."
I like that book the best because it includes action, magic and so much more! Also, the bond between the twins. The girl's name is Sophie and her twin is Josh.
When they found out that they had hidden powers and that the human kind lies in their hands, they agree to go with Nicholas Flamel.
Sophie's powers get awakened, but Josh couldn't because the evil Dr. Dee is after two pages he needs to control the world!
Flamel is the alchemist (the protector of the book).
Dee snatched all but two very important pages of the Book of Abraham The Mage.
What will happen? Find the book "The Alchemist," written by Michael Scott, to find out. Or read The Magician and The Sorceress. Read the whole series! It's fantastic!

My favorite book is "Rumpelstiltskin."
I like it because Rumpelstiltskin does a funny dance. Rumpelstiltskin started nice, but then he got mean.
He had magic too, he spun star into gold. This book teaches Rumpelstiltskin some manners, he also wanted to take the Miller's daughter's first born child.
If she didn't guess Rumpelstiltskin's name in three days then she'd get her baby taken away, so she got it right.
The Miller's daughter became Queen and she lived happily ever after. That's why I like the book Rumpelstiltskin.

My favorite book is "The School Story" by Andrew Clements.
It's about a sixth-grade girl who strives to get the great book she wrote published.
It's a wonderful book because it captures the real life problems kids like me face.
The way the book is written makes people want to guess the ending.
It also shows that if you work hard and reach for the stars, your dream can come true.
