A Brisket,A Casket is the first book in the Deadly Deli Mystery series,Author  Delia  Rosen creatively uses murder as an entree in this cozy little mystery.To spice things up,Rosen also throws in a delicious dessert in the form of a little romance.This novel will certainly leave the reader hungry for more.Gwen(nee katz).This novel is one of the most interesting novel that I ever read because it is about a detective story.

comment :
 First book of a new fantasy adventure, written in the best world-hopping tradition and reinvented in N. D. Wilson's own inimitable style. this is a fantasy adventure reading book same as Narnia, i like the flow of the story, it become excited and excite very chapter. when Henry find out about the truth inside the cupboard, that is actually the story begin. the Aurthur use all the way to tell us and make us imagine what happen to the character and the surrounding.a lots of new words that i never use, i never know about it. i don't want to share it with you because i think you should read it by your self and find it. i actually had use my new words in my synopsis. i enjoy reading this book and i finish it only in 4 days which more faster than the book before this. If you enjoy watching Narnia, i bet you also will enjoy much with this novel. i think N.D Wilson have done a great job. :)

His mother, Bluestone lay on a heap of brown fern at the far end of the dark room crying out and something groaning for three days. The priest woman name Ash always pointed her snake stick at him and told him harshly to stay where he was whenever he wanted to crawl to his mother. Ash had sent all the men and boy away from the longhouse when Bluestone started to groan. She wants to send Crookleg also but the young women begged her not to because of his leg. Ash warns Crookleg to not look when the magic started because it will make bad luck to his family and if it happens she will blame Crookleg. She also will give Crookleg to Bone. Bone was the Rainmaker. And lived in a little cave deep in the forest. He was very old and bent. No one had seen his face.

comment :
This week we read a book of Henry Treece. The story are impressive. It use language like a poet and the word used are not to difficult for us to understand. The flow of the story are also interesting. This story in very short and simple words, put together in such a way that they can express things which are not simple at all. We should believe in God not to people who can give a luck. Furthermore, do not judge people by its look. People of Dog Folk do not like Crookleg because they do not know the real him. They just believe what other people say about him, that he is such a loser. But at the end, Crookleg has his own folk.

moral story :
1)Do not simply believe what people say
2)Love can not be force
3)Do not judge people easily
4)Do not afraid to show who you are
5)Be yourself

new word :
  1. strand: a single thin piece of thread, wire or hair
  2. yarn: thick thread made of cotton or wool, which is used to knit something
  3. snarl: an animal, it makes a low angry sound and show its teeth.

       So,on that morning trip,Uncle Henry drove the children to the Taiping Zoo by his large tomato-red Mercedes.When they arrived there,Uncle Henry has asked Zul to take care of everyone as he is the oldest.They had an enjoyable time inside the zoo except Georgie that really spoiled the whole trip because he doesn't likes animals at all.Before they finished their trip in that zoo,Georgie went to the gift shop,bought some souvenirs for his mother.The children suggested some of the souvenirs that would suitable for his mothers,but nothing they suggested pleased Georgie.At last the children wandered out of the shop and feed the monkeys.After a few minutes they wondered that Georgie has gone.

       My comments about this story are,it is a well-organised and straight  forward story from the very beginning until the end of the story that readers can understands straight forward without have to thinking very hardly.The author,Jean Adnan portray Larut Hill and Taiping Zoo as the background place where this story is creates.The author use a simple words in this story and it is very suitable for a new readers and also a new learners on english languages.This story also give attentions on nature while the story at the Larut Hill.For example,Sandy,the Scottish man that has sprained his ankle is a nature lover knows better about the nature especially the types of birds.I also has learn new things from this story for example,if a tree trunk is cut across,we can see circles inside the trunk.Each ring means a year of the tree's life.So we just have to count how many circles there are and that tells us how old the tree was.So,as the conclusion,"Adventure On Larut Hill"is a very adventurous story,very interesting and the most important things is,I really enjoy reading this book.

Billy Budd and The Encantadas

The merchant sailor,Billy Budd,is inspected and enlisted for naval service on the Bellipotent.Although his civillian captain is not happy to see him go,he has to release him to the navy.Billy is a wonderful sailor.All the sailors like him for his charming looks and honest simple pesonality.He waves good-bye to his shipmates as he is taken aboard his new ship.
Billy does well in his new surroundings.The other sailors like him as much as he was liked on the merchant vessel.He works in the topsails and makes fast friends with companions and a veteran sailor,referred to as the Dansker.
The captain of the ship is Fairfax Vere.Captain Vere is a very stern man.He is well-read and educated and he speaks often in historical allusions.Many find him to be less than personable and he is not popular with the sailors,although he is respected.
There is a new master-at-arms on the ship and his name is John Claggart.The job of the master-at-arms has turned into policing his own crew.He is primarily responsible for watching over the men.In recent months there have been mutinies on British ships,so the officers are ill-at-ease.Claggart's job is more difficult as a result of this.
One of the corporals tell Claggart that Billy Budd was ridiculing him.Claggart takes offense at this lie and begins to watch Billy carefully,counterfeiting pleasant hellos.When Billy finds out from the veteran sailor that Claggarts doesn't like him,he doesn't believe it.
After the pursuit of an enemy ship,Claggart goes to Captain Vere and tells him that he thinks one of the men is dangerous,liable to mutiny.When he tells him that he means Billy Bud,the captain doesn't believe him.He takes Billy and Claggart into a room and makes Claggart accuse Billy to his face.Billy is stunned by the accusation and when pressured to talk,he punches Claggart in the forehead.This punch hit just right and kills the master-at-arms.
Captain Vere is  at first confused,but he calls a court of other officers to review the crime and set a sentence.Although some of them feel that Billy unintionally commited a crime,Captain Vere maintains that on a warship a murder is a murder regardless of intention.They convict Billy and sentence him to hang at down.
At dawn,all the men assemble and Billy is hung by the main mast.the sunrises on his body framed by the mast and the yardarm.Some men think that he seemed to die before the noose tightened.Although an official report stated that Billy stabbed Claggart after he was rightly accused,the truth of his excution lived on in a ballad sung by sailors all over the world.

New words
-A large rings made of wood,metal and plastic.
-formal an amount of money paid regularly to someone,especially a priest,as a salary or as money to live on.
-shining in the dark
-weather that is unpleasantly hot with no movement of air

Moral value of the novel
1)Billy's morality is simple and honest
-Billy does not struggle with the noval officer enlisting him,because this is his duty,Althought he might not want to go into the navy,he goes anyway and he tries to do well once he gets there.
2)Captain Vere is an intellectual;he is also mistaken for a gentleman
-His ideas of morality and right and wrong are heavily.
I found that this novel is very tragedic and quite interesting to be read among english novels reader.It is because the novel,as superb tragedy must,ends on a calm and satisfying note.The tragic hero is a superior being whose martyrdom elevates him even further.He is not perfect;he possesses the flaw which contributes to his fate.(At times of intense emotion,he is unable to speak;therefore,he retorts to Claggartwith his fist.)The Encantadas,or Enchanted Isles,a book of ten sketches-all laid in the lonely Galapagos Islands off the coast of Eucador-represents Herman Merville at his highest point of achievement as a writer.First published in The Piazza Tales,each sketch is a gem by itself.Compassion and wit mingle with anger as Melville presents his two major themes-the power of evil and man in isolation.

We also find a lots of new words that we want to share with you, check our NEW WORDS list. This book is better than last week, we want to know what happen next , sometimes it become suspend and excited for it. At the end of the story, it quite fun because Mrs Longleat man has became his tutor and he have to accept what happen. 

Although we love our father, but we have to try accept if he no longer exist. Everyone will die, but we don't know when, don;t blame people about what happen. This is the moral value that we want to share with you :
