Write three (3) sentences which describe the Setting of the book. Be sure use descriptive words.:

The setting of the book was very calm and peaceful as an ordinary little girl. That little girls name was Twig. With her mama and her papa (as she would call her parents) they washed their clothes and cleaned dishes together.

List all of the main characters in the book, and share a little bit of information about each character.:

Twig is the first main character you meet inside of the book and she has a white dress with green stripes and a little red bow in her hair. Mrs. Sparrow is the second character you meet in this book, and I bet you can tell she is a brown sparrow in Twig’s backyard. Mr. Cobb is the third character you will find in the book and he is an old man sitting on a chair always reading the news in the newspaper with his overalls and his red shirt. The fourth character is Elf, an elf with potato skin clothes and an acorn top hat. The fifth character you meet is Sparrow which is Mrs. Sparrow’s husband and he hadn’t come back from his journey, and you could probably tell he is a sparrow too. The sixth character you meet is The Fairy Queen and she is the queen of all the fairies. The seventh character is Lord Buzzle and he is an old man, but a lord.

If there was a problem presented in the book, write three (3) sentences about it. Otherwise, write three sentences about your favorite part of the book.:

One of my favorite parts of the book is the time that Elf turned Twig super small. My second favorite part was when Mrs. Sparrows eggs hatched when Twig and Elf were sitting on them. My last favorite part was when one star twinkled in the day sky and made the entire sky beautiful.

If there was a problem presented in the book, write three (3) sentences about how the problem was solved. If there was not problem, write three sentences about what you would have liked to have seen in the book that the author did not include.:

I would of liked to have seen other characters in the book. I would have also loved to have seen more houses then Elf’s and Twig’s house. The last thing I wanted to see a town with a beach and shops.

How did this book make you feel? Write three (3) sentences describing the feelings you had, when reading the book.:

The book made me feel really adventurous and happy. It also made me feel accomplished and trustworthy. At the end it made me feel magical and really sad because Twig had to say goodbye to all of her friends.

Star Rating:


Write three (3) sentences describing why you gave this book this rating.:

One reason is because it made me feel magical and it made me feel like I was in the book myself. Another reason why I gave it a five star rating is because I really loved the personality of the characters inside of the book. The last reason why I gave it a five star rating is because of what they were wearing. I thought it was really creative to do potato skins and for a tree there was a dandelion and for the house it was a tomato can.
