Today 11 year old Shikha Dholakia from Vadodara shares her book review with us.
Book: Diving with the Dolphins, from the series Magic Tree House
Author: Mary Pope Osborne, a famous American writer who writes books for children from ages 5-15. She lives in New York, and has published over 40 books be it fairytales, myths,and much more.
Some famous person said, “Books are another way to get on an adventure.” While keeping this in mind, I read this beautiful and adventurous book.
I loved the way the author has written the book. Whenever I read the book, I get the mysterious and thrilling feeling in me.
The book is about a brother and a sister who go into the deep sea in order to solve riddles given by a person named Morgan. Their journey from sitting in a mini Sub and all the adventures they go through, is what makes the story interesting. They go through different difficulties which include the minisub getting attacked by octopus, seahorses and the scariest part was when they were going to be attacked by sharks. But the main twist happens when the dolphins save the mini sub from drowning . This is the part I like the most. It is said that dolphins are very helpful and friendly to human beings and this scene proves it.
The bond between the brother and sister is also very sweet because Jack, even though the older brother never, scolded his little sister and always helped her, supported her, and took her everywhere he went out for an adventure. I think that this is what we should do with our siblings.
Other special moments I would like to share from the book include the way the dolphins showed their bravery and courage in order to save the kids from the drowning mini sub, and the best part was when the story begins from how the two kids see the same dream and keep it in mind and set off for the clues and riddles given by Morgan. The way the kids have used their intelligence in order to find clues in the deep sea is phenomenal.
I would recommend this book because it is well researched, interesting, exciting, adventurous , etc.
As I said that If you are an animal lover this book would be really interesting to read. This book is really nice as it not only shows the importance of people but also animals.
I recommend the book not only for its intended age group- 6 to 10 years, but also older.
If you trust me and read this book you will fall in love with the Magic Tree House series. I would give it a full 5 stars out of 5*
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
