Story Summary: When Nic, a slave in the mines outside of Rome, is forced to enter a sealed cavern containing the lost treasures of Julius Caesar, he finds much more than gold and gemstones:He discovers an anctient bulla, an amulet that belonged to the great Caesar, filled with magic once reserved for the gods- magic some romans would kill for. Now, with the deadly power of the bulla pulsing through hs veins, Nic is determined to become free. But instead, he finds himself at the center of a ruthless conspiracy to overthrow the emperor and spark the Praetor War, a battle to destroy Rome from within.

Story Summary: There was 3 little pigs just on a regular dirt road, One pig built a house out of straw, and one pig built its his house out of sticks, And also the third tough pig built its house out of brick so the big bad wolf wont get him.

Your Review: This book was pretty good. I like how this book was a fairy tale and the pigs could talk and build their own house, So actually i really liked it. What i didn’t like was the big bad wolf. He made me so mad, I know he was hungry but the pigs w did nothing to him. It would make a great movie. The Three little pig should star. Kids who love to read fairy tales would love this book. I think every body should read this great book.

Book by: Adam Gidwitz
Book Length: 192 pages

Story Summary: This is a story about a king, a queen, a son, and a daughter. The king had its servent die so he cut off the heads of his children and he comes back to life. The servent soon revives the children but the children dont want their father to kill them again so they ran away. They run into challenging obstacles that want to kill them.

Your Review: I liked this book because it was funny, fast paced, was gory and had some twists you might not see coming. What I didn’t like was the repeditivey. It had some of the same jokes that got annoying. I think this is for 11-14 year olds because it got a little mature. If you like all the thing I listed in this Review, you should check it out.
