Murphy our Reading Dog's Blog Thursday 25 May 2017

Hey hey!  Sports Day today!  I'd like to take part on sports day - I could go in for the four-legged race!
 
So it was Mr Vaughan's class today, and I lay down enjoying a cool breeze.
 
First up was Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Dog Days, where Greg was trying to impress Heather, a girl he really, really liked.  I'm glad us dogs don't have to go through all that.  It's so much simpler being a dog.  If you like another dog, you stay and play; if you're not bothered, you just say Hi and move on.  Simples. 
 
Beware Killer Tomatoes was next, and Jack was in hospital with a broken leg, and he was so bored, he was even missing school!  I don't ever get bored, but sometimes I like to have a little dream while I doze ...
 
Then it was Wimpy Kid again (the first one) where it was Halloween and a man in a  mask was hiding in Chain Saw Alley.
 
Next was iHero Dragon Mountain, where you could fly around the sky on a gryphon hergal until you chose what to do next.
 
Then it was The Railway Children and I got introduced to all three of them, right at the beginning of the story.
 
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was up next, where Augustus Gloop got a golden ticket to look round Willy Wonka's factory, and that meant there weren't many tickets left to find ...
 
Then I listened to another Wimpy Kid book, Roderick Rules.  That made three today!  It was swimming practice at 7.30 every morning.  Wow!  That's a bit early!
 
Next was Notes from Steven Davis, the Southampton football manager, which was written like a letter to all the fans.
 
Last today was Fantastic Mr Fox, a story about three mean farmers called Boggis, Bunce and Bean.  What great names!
 
Phew!  It was so hot today, Mum bought an ice cream from the van outside school, and I had a little taste - mmmm!  Raspberry!  Nom nom!  My new favourite thing!  Licky lick!
 
Have a great half term and keep reading
