Book Reviews by Julia – Honk!

Honk!: The Story of a Prima Swanerina

I like Honk because Honk is a great story because Honk really really really goes into the Swan Lake ballet. And Swan Lake is a great movie. I’ve seen the movie too. But it’s a little scary, because in the Swan Lake movie, the swan doesn’t marry the prince, and they die at the end. They don’t marry at all because at one party they don’t usually have the swan princess, and the mean sorcerer tricks the prince. So the swan lake girl is trapped up, and that’s how the mean wizard tricks the prince. And it’s very scary because at the end they really do want to marry each other. All the other princesses that were changed into swans were so beautiful because they all had white dresses and beautiful — like lapis lazuli

Conrad ooh ooh-ooh

Conrad Viking

Conrad has reduced the English language to the bare essentials and now carries on conversations using tones and syllables. “I love you” is now “ooh-ooh,” “Thank you” is “do-do,” and “May I have that, please?” is “do da, de”…Claire and I understand him and respond in tones and syllables. “I love you too” is “ooh-ooh ooh” and “You’re welcome” is “do do-do”.
