Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Title: Alice in Wonderland
Author: Lewis Carroll
Stars: 3
Description: When Alice suddenly saw a pink-eyed rabbit take a watch out of its waistcoat pocket, mutter to himself and dash away, she took of right after him, burning with curiosity, and in no time at all one of the most wonder full of adventures had begun.
This book I think would be an excellent read for little kids, I had read this book about 3 years ago, but it wasn't the real version and since the movie just came out in theatre I decided that I would read it over again.
I have always loved the movie that Disney made and while I was reading it I realized that Disney changed a whole bunch of things in the movie. There was no Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum and in the book there is no Very Merry Un-Birthday either. They changed a lot more and I'm hoping that they won't do that for the real movie.
But I do think that lots of kids would love this story!

Beastly by Alex Flinn

Title: Beastly
Author: Alex Flinn
Stars: 5
This book is a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. This book is amazing and I think it would have to be one of my favorites. I can't wait for the movie and I think Alex Pettyfer is perfect for Kyle. I love the point of this story because it shows that you don't have to be beautiful to be popular or even find true love. I do recommend this book to people who like fairy tales and love stories.
This book is in modern times so they're references to making out and things like that. From what I remember I don't remember any language and if there was I don't think it was horrible. But if you look past all of this stuff, it's truly a great book!
