My favorite character is Annie because she is active. Annie never surfed before, but she tried and she did a great job. It made me want to surf. I think I would feel kind of scared and kind of happy. I can remember climbing the monkey bars for the first time. I didn?t quite make it because the last one was wet!
Do you think it would be scary to have salt water going in your eyes and up your nose? This happened to Jack and he was very frightened. When I was about four, at the beach, my friend Zack had goggles and a shark cap on his head. He went under water and grabbed my feet! I slipped on the slippery shells and hurt my cheek. I was very frightened, so I can imagine how Jack felt.
I learned lots of facts in this book. For example, that some islands are made by volcanoes, and how the wind and the birds bring seeds. I like this book because it is funny, surprising, and amazing. I think young and old would like this book.
