Bad guys are stuck on a space station on the moon without a rocket. Luckily Patas discovers a way out. Luck doesn't last long. A creature with a lot of teeth and too many butts is taking them away. They already have a plan, let's see if it works.  My favorite part was when Mr. Lobo said that whoever is against continuing to look for his friends raises his hand and clearly Mr. Culebra has no hands but it is against, that part gave me a lot of laughter I would recommend this book to my best friend because she would understand why why its my favorite. I would like to tell you that if you like the book very much there are more parts such as 1,2,3, etc. and that there are many moments of tension.

When Penny looked out her bedroom window, she didn't see any snow. Penny really wanted to use her new red sled. Penny wished for snow every day. It was very cold, the sky was gray, but where was the snow? A long time passed and she still didn't see snow. But one day there was only rain drops.  My favorite part of the book was when Penny talk to the baby and not talk but makes sounds.  I recommend this book to a friend because it's easy to read.

This book tells the story from the point of view of Ivan. Ivan is a gorilla who lived in a shopping mall for most of his life. Then throughout the story he meets Ruby a baby elephant and suddenly everything changed. Ivan loved to paint. The owner sold his paintings for money. He has grown accustomed to humans.  My favorite part of the book was when Ivan said to himself that Ruby is safe just like he promised and that was how you know that Ivan cared about his friend Stella. It was just a sentimental moment since Stella is no longer alive. I would recommend it to anyone because it's just an emotional Rollercoaster and a heart warming story.

This is actually a true story, there was a gorilla named Ivan who lived in a mall for about 3 decades. He actually did paint in real life.

This book is very funny because they are with a talking tape dispenser. The tape dispenser has humor.The raccoon is very mean and the tree can only say "I am Groot." The book is also very interesting because they are stranded on a planet that there are only robots.My favorite part of the book is that their ship was basically eaten by space piranhas!

This book is about a girl named Esperanza who has everything she could ever want. She lives on a ranch with her family and has a happy life. One day her father goes on a business trip and doesn't return. Her mother finds herself in a conflict with Esperanza's uncles. They threaten them so much that they have to leave. They leave all their belongings and go to California. There they go to a camp were her life changes forever. My favorite part of the book was when she moved to California and learned many more life lessons. I want kids to know that this book relates to a lot of people around them. Esperanza learned a lot about herself and mostly about her own abilities.
