Review: What would you be if you could shape shift - a soaring bird, a swimming fish, or a slithering snake? Who or what would you defeat, if you were to conquer over evil? Sumi's Book, the fifth book in The Fairy Godmother Academy book series, is a captivating read written by Jan Bozarth.
Sumi is an everyday girl who is all about fashion and her mother is a bit differentÉ ok more like a lot different! She can find the beauty in the very ugly, old things. It all begins when Sumi and her mom go shopping in an antiques store and Sumi finds an interesting box. When she opens it, she finds a mirror. She picks it up to look at herself, but when she looks, the glass is gone and she can't see herself. Sumi shows her mom what she has found and her mom takes it and says ÒThis mirror has special meaning for youÓ. Sumi is confused, she thought it was just a broken mirror, but she is wrong!
Personally I think Sumi's Book is a must read. It has a lot of suspense, adventure, magic, and it's a thrilling story that teaches you to look on the inside of someone and not just the outside. Readers will find out that sometimes the ugly things (like dull gray fish) can be the most valuable. I recommended this book for kids in 3rd grade to 6th grade because it is a very easy read with only a few difficult words. Also, I would recommend this book more for girls because it includes a lot of talk about girl crushes and fashion, which would most likely interest girls more. I would definitely search for Sumi's book next time you go to the library and I recommend you read it!
