No Flying in the House

One day, Mrs.Vancourt was walking on the beach. Soon she found a dog three inches tall and wide. “Hi. My name is Gloria, and I’m looking for a home,” said the dog. “You can speak?” asked Mrs.Vancourt. “Yes.” Mrs. Vancourt took Gloria home. Soon, a girl named Annabel came in the house. Because Gloria had 367 tricks, she did it. Annabel and Mrs.Vancourt were amazed. Soon they had breakfast. After a long day of fun, they went to bed. At midnight, Annabelle went downstairs. The door blew open. Annabel closed it. When she turned around, the door of a cabinet was open. There was golden toys in it. Annabel was not allowed to touch them, but she did and broke one. “I thought you weren’t allowed to touch them,”said a voice. Annabel spun around. There was a golden cat! It taught her to fly. Read the rest of the book to see what she does with her flying powers!

I like the book because at the end of the book, her family comes back. I also like it because Gloria does 367 tricks. I would do anything to have Gloria as a friend. I also like it because Annabel learns to fly. I’ve always wanted to fly.

I would recommend this book to grades three and up because there’s hard words in this book. I would also recommend this book to third grade teachers because they can read it to them. I lastly recommend this book to parents because they can get stuck in the book because the book is really good!
