Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis

Lucy, Edmund and Caspian are on an island called World's End. Three sleeping bearded lords, who have been sleeping for seven years at Aslan's Table, are under an enchantment after one of them stupidly touched a knife that the White Witch used to kill Aslan. They need to break the enchantment. The girl they met on the island says her father can teach Caspian how to do that.

Boxcar Children: The Mystery of the Soccer Snitch

At the Alden children's soccer practice, a girl named Kayla receives a mean message that says she should not be an international mascot because she isn't a team player, she is a show-off, etc. The Alden children investigates and find out who wrote the mean message and who broke the window (extreme temperature difference). Kayla intentionally did those things and sent the letter to herself because she didn't want to be a mascot and she doesn't like soccer. Her parents let her quit soccer and sign up for an art program instead. She likes drawing and being an artist.



I was going to teach J quality adjectives (IEW), when I realized that he seldom uses adjectives in both his daily speech and writing. So for now I’m focusing on having him add one extra adjective to his writing.

I gave him the cue "The girl they met on the island," thinking that he would go with the predictable "beautiful girl" or "pretty girl." Instead, he went for "bearded."

He is an eight-year-old boy after all *g*

Warriors: The Lost Warrior by Erin Hunter

This happened after the twolegs cut down the beautiful forest that was the cats' home. The lost warrior Greystripes is now in a twolegs town and wants to go back to the forest. Greystripes wants to feel like a warrior again and he doesn't want to feel lonely. He meets Millie, who takes him to the edge of town. In the sequel he's going to try to find the forest and the Thunderclan.

Nancy Drew: the Disoriented Express

Nancy Drew, who is a girl detective, is on a train being hijacked by a crazy guy who's trying to destroy a tank. Nancy goes through a bathroom to a fire exit that leads to the top of the train to get into the control room. They wake up the train conductor, who stops the train. Then the police came.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis

Lucy, Edmund and Eustace are being sold as slaves at Narrowhaven. Caspian leads 50 warriors and uses ship signals to trick the governor into thinking there is a whole fleet of ships. The governor doesn't care about people. They throw the governor out, and Caspian makes his friend Lord Bern the Duke of Lone Islands.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader, ctd.

They are now somewhere at the ocean. Eustace writes in his journal that he tries to steal water because he's so thirsty. He feels like he gets less food than everyone else. Lucy wants to share some of her food with him, but Edmund stops her. They thankfully find some land before they run out of water, and they receive extra water rations that night.



Here's J's extra comment of the Nancy Drew book, because it made me laugh:

The woman in the bathroom says, "My dress is ruined, and I can't dry it" (because she dropped the hairdryer into the toilet.)
