This book is a really good book. The words are big, and younger kids would be able to read it, but I think this book is filled with fun facts and interesting stories about the Hindenburg, which makes it suitable for people of all ages. In this story, eleven-year old Hugo Ballard and his four-year old sister, Gertie, along with their parents, travel from Germany to New York City on the Hindenburg. Originally, their family is from Kenya, and their plan was to stay a year there. However, when Gertie catches Malaria, the Ballards are forced to leave Kenya and go to New York City to seek treatment for Gertie. Their family boards the zeppelin, hoping to get to New York City in time to treat Gertie. Along the way, Hugo meets a friendly girl named Marty. They become friends, but soon Hugo finds out that Marty's father is a spy, against the Nazis. What will happen to Marty's father? Will Gertie get better? Find out the answers by reading I Survived: The Hindenburg Disaster, 1937, by Lauren Tarshis! I would like to thank DOGObooks for sending me this book in exchange for a review.
This book was not a bad book, but I would say that it is for people who are between the ages of 5-7. Bad Kitty is not her usual self, and most strange of all, she will not eat. Bad Kitty must be forced into her carrier, and the only way to make her do that, would be to put Puppy in the carrier and say that Puppy ate all her toys. When Bad Kitty goes to the vet, all she can hear are bad things that they will do to her. The vet administers sedative, and Bad Kitty falls asleep, and dreams that she goes to Kitty Paradise. The only problem, is that Bad Kitty does not deserve to go to Kitty Paradise, because of all the bad things she has done to poor Puppy. But the guardian tells Bad Kitty that she has 24 hours to do something good to Puppy, otherwise she will spend the rest of her days in Puppy Paradise! Will Bad Kitty make it in time? Read this book to find out! I would love to thank DOGObooks for supplying this book for me in exchange for a review.
