My book review on Hatchet

If you are looking for a book where everything is perfect than you've come to the wrong place because in this book everything goes absolutely wrong.   THE  END 
Just joking, Hatchet is actually a really great book.
It is written by Gary Paulsen and it is about a boy who survives against all odds. It's genre is survival and action.

Brian is a city boy of new York. Not used to be living rough. Until the bush-plane that he is on crash lands in the Canadian wilderness. All he has is a small Hatchet and a very desperate will to survive. Brian must now learn to live the hard way or he'll die.

I liked the book because it used really interesting and catchy words. It also used factual statements which taught me something. For example that in the wilderness you can't take shortcuts like building a easy shelter. If you do things like this you be in trouble later on. In life its the same thing, if you do things not proper then you will suffer the consequences later.
I also liked Brian's creativity for example when he used his shoelaces to make a bow. 

The thing i did not like was that the book kept talking about emotional stuff. For example at the beginning of the book it was all about divorce and the pilot having a heart attack. 

I think the message in this book is to never give in to complicated things when they face you . It doesn't matter if you in the wilderness or you are a city kid. The author also wanted to teach the reader about surviving in the wild and at the same time trying to entertain kids.

So over all it is an awesome book. I would recommend this book for people who love the wilderness and want to learn about survival in nature.

Poem of peace

Peace is a world of freedom.
Everyone wants to live in peace.
Are rulers giving us a choice.
Rulers let people live in poverty.
Love will be restored when peace is.

Hope is strong for people who believe.
After peace is back everyone will joyful.
Revolt means nothing good.
Beauty is in water and land.
Of war becomes disaster .
Unicorns are in minds of young little kids.
Roars of guns and bullets.

Miners mining
I love Minecraft
Netherland getting closer, closer  
Endermen teleporting here and there 
Creepers creeping everywhere
Rafts are floating just for me
After battle we go home
Fire and flames on my touches 
Tons of mobs hunting me

A big day

                                                                           (Part 2)

We started walking to Tim's place. We knew the girls started walking ten minutes after us so we had all the time in the world to be without them.

Tim, Joel and me walked for a while and then we began to jog, just because it was fun. Joel started running but Tim and me kept jogging. We called to Joel" weren't you the one who said we were jogging."
Joel said "I am jogging."
That was just ridiculous but Tim and me said nothing.

At the bottom of the hill we ran because we thought that ten minutes were over and we hadn't gone very far. None of us had a watch so we didn't know for sure.

We arrived at Joel's place and the girls where still out of sight. Joel got his backpack. Then Timothy had a great Idea, we should race the girls. So he said "we should wait here for a few moments till we see the girls." Joel and I didn't mind so we waited and got a drink.

When the girls got up to us, we told them that we would race them and started running. All of the sudden they went another way because they thought its a shortcut. And they were really at Tims house before us. 

At Tim's it was nearly tea time, just then mum stepped through the door and brought my bag and picked up Tara. We had pork with vegetables for tea and it was really good.

After prayer time we watched a little kid movie.
Next thing  we were walking down stairs and going to watch the "Avengers", I was so excited because i had never watched that movie before. After the movie we went to bed and i realized that i forgot to pack my pajamas but luckily I had spear clothes to sleep in.

      A big day 

         ( Part 1)

Thud! I fell out of my bed "ow" I cursed.
Just then I noticed today was the day -  the big day. But I hadn't packed anything.

My world did a 1 80 and turned upside down, everything went chaotic. "Whow, slow down" I said to myself. I went to the kitchen and had breakfast. Then mum said "I thought you were already dressed". I quickly got dressed but forgot to pack my backpack. Mum, Tara and me hopped into the car and picked up two of my best friends Tim, the brain, and Joel, the joker. When we arrived at there house they were both ready to go. Compare to me they were organised.

We drove back to my place and the big day had begun.

Our plan was to do a master chef at our house, walk to Tim's house, have a movie and tea there and in the morning we wanted to walk to Joel's house to have breakfast and a soccer game. 

We quickly decided that for the master chef competition we wanted to make a salad, some devil sausages with wedges and a chocolate cake. Then we realized that we had no recipe for the devil sausages nor the chocolate cake. So we hoped online and got a recipe for both of them. We made a list of ingredients we needed from countdown. We found them easily. At home we started cooking right away because we just had one and a half hours time. I had to make the salad, Tim made the chocolate cake and Joel was in charge of the devil sausages and wedges. We had to help each other and cook against Mum, Tara and Ellie. 

It was really fun in the kitchen but we got in trouble because Joel was so busy doing the devil sausages that he totally forgot the wedges and then Tim decided finally to read his recipe and realized his cake would take five hours. At the end the cake turned out alright but we had to roast some leftover potatoes with crazy, hot, self invented spices we fund in Mums fridge. Dad was the judge. He gave our salad a 8, the devil sausages a 9 and the cake a 9 as well.

We triumphed over the girls 26-24.

But we still had to do one thing before we left, cleaning the dishes. The dishes - the one thing we didn't plan on doing but there was no way around it. While we were cleaning I started singing "pompay" then everyone else joined in. We also sang "waka waka"  and "waving flag". That was great fun because Joel started drumming as well.

                                                    The ancient Greek Spartan warriors

Yes, Spartans were truly marvelous warriors and the best there were at the time.
If you want to learn about Spartans then keep reading because I will tell you all I know.

Spartans were the fiercest warriors around and that was because they had the most strict fighting training. The city of Sparta did not have any walls because it did not need any because why need walls when you have the fiercest, roughest and bravest soldiers. In the year 431 BC Spartans decided to attack Athens and in the year 405 BC they finally managed to win. Two years later Sparta had a war with Persia at the sea.  The Spartans made 378 war ships and the Persians had 435. After 200 Persian ships had been sunk Persia retreated.

Now another cool thing is their weapons. The Spartan spear was 2-3 meters long, it was used to stab the attacker because usually they came running at them. The Xiphos (spartan sword) was a short, deadly killer and the blade was 18 inches long. The  Kopis (spartan dagger) was a hacking device to do nasty wounds to attackers. The spartan bronze armor only covered a few bits. They only had a helmet, a chest plate and leg plates.
The Spartans were famous for their long hair. Before their battle ahead they each combed their hair as this was a tradition. When Spartans were angry at the crowd they cut half their hair to show it

So Spartans were great warriors

                                          After school
Today after school I went to McDonalds with my little brother Jac to get a cheeseburger because we both had a voucher with our soccer certificates. I had a soccer training certificate for being the best at training. My brother got his certificate from being the best player on the field. After we had our burgers we went back to school.
Mum was waiting in the car for us. I asked where Tara and Max were. She said "they are in the library."
We stopped in front of the library. Mum told me to get Tara and Max but of course they were on the toilet. I had my library card so I thought I could get some library books out. When Tara and Max got back from the toilet I said “one more minute”. I already had four beano`s but I wanted a chapter book. Then Jac came into the library and he said" come on guys mum`s waiting," " oops "I said to myself I must've forgotten the time. I hurried to issue my books and ran back to the car. In the car mum said" I sent you in there to get them, not to read beano's and where`s your chapter book" "there were no chapter book`s I liked" I said.
When we got home I read all four beano`s with my brothers and sister. They were funny and made us laugh a lot.
So over all I had a great day
