Review: Silly, adventurous, and creative are three words that describe an outstanding book. In Super Surprise, a Zig Zag book written by Patricia Reilly Gift, Destiny and Yolanda go to school at Zig Zag Elementary School, and are best friends. Destiny Washington is an amazing helper; she helps the lunch lady give out snacks, and helps out in the Afternoon Center. When Destiny finds out that her favorite teacher, Ms. Katz might have to leave the school, she wants to help her stay. Since, Destiny is good at rhyming, and Yolanda is good at art. They will put their talents together. What terrific plan will they come up with?

Super Surprise has realistic characters that made me want to keep reading. The author uses personifications in the book that makes it lively and full of action, for example, Ò Bus Thirteen coughed up onto the street,Ó Destiny said. Super Surprise is appropriate for all audiences, but kids in Kindergarten through 3rd grade would be fonder of satisfying ending of this incredible book! For kids who have a favorite teacher that is retiring or moving to a different school can easily relate to the characters in this book. Super Surprise deserves four stars because of its well-developed ideas and characters, which will make you, want to keep reading.

Review written by Katie (6th grade student).
