Title: Kid President's Guide to Being Awesome
Authors: Brad Montague and Robby Novak
Reviewed by: Isaac R.R., Grade 4
Guide to Being AWESOME has Kid President's ideas for how to make the world a better place. One example of being awesome is to share! Other ways to be awesome is to put tape on your nose (it's a great conversation starter), and also asking questions is awesome!
The advice I would like to take is the one that says talk better! In the book Kid President says "talk gooder" but that's not a word! But what do you expect? He's a kid!
If you are not familiar with Kid President, take a look at his video "Kid President's Pep Talk to Teachers and Students." For more information, visit his website.
Title: Jedi Academy: the Phantom Bully
Author: Jeffrey Brown
Illustrator: Jeffrey Brown
Genre: Graphic Novel

A kid named Roan goes to a Jedi school and a bully always gets him into trouble and he doesn't know who it is. The main message is that life is full of problems and you have to face them.
The setting is Jedi academy year three and there are scenes in the labyrinth, the obstacle course, and the talent show.
Roan is a kid who always has troubles and good friends. He changes by going from weak to strong and he learns not to use anger. Roan doesn't remind me of any one I know.
There are many illustrations, and they help tell the story. (Its half comic.) They affected me by letting me see what was happening.
I would recommend it because it is a very funny book and also shows a Star Wars kid. I liked that it was funny, and he had a lot of problems. I didn't like that sometimes his friends got upset with him. I think a funny fiction reader would enjoy this book
