Fly Guy vs. the Flyswatter by Tedd Arnold

Fly Guy goes everywhere with his friend, Buzz.  One day they go on a trip to the flyswatter factory.  Uh oh!    Even though I thought Fly Guy was going to get killed or whacked, this is funny because Fly Guy is friends with a human.  Also, it got crazy when the swatters started trying to kill him, but then in the end, everybody loves him.

Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper

Melody is a girl who has a disease.  She can’t walk, she can’t talk, and she can’t write, but she finds a way to communicate with her friends and to tell her parents that she loved them.  The descriptive writing helps you make the movie in your mind.  It is exciting because you never know what is going to happen.  Melody’s life is full of challenges, but that will soon change.
