It is getting to the end of the Australian school year. People in the southern hemisphere are thinking of the beach, barbecues, salads and seafood, while people in the northern hemisphere are more likely to be thinking of snow, warm log fires, eggnog, roast meat and vegetables, Christmas pudding.
Once all the food and festivities are over, what do you enjoy doing?
Is there a favourite movie or book you enjoy watching or reading at this time of year?
A month ago I asked you to vote for your favourite type of book. Well, out of 77 votes, 66 votes were for adventure stories.
Back when I was at school, there was a great series of books I loved reading. The author was Willard Price and he wrote about ten books having adventures in different parts of the world. The main characters were Hal and Roger Hunt.
So this week I wonder if you can leave a comment telling me about your favourite adventure book.
I read a story about a boy who would live forever, called The Boy Who Would Live Forever, by Moya Simons.
It all started when the boy forgot his family and where he lived. While he was trying to find out where he lived, a couple on a farm took care of him they named him Daniel, told him he was about 12 years old and sent him to school. Time went by and his friends grew up and started working. But Daniel didn’t grow up and people made fun of him. Daniel didn’t know why he was not ageing.
I loved it because it was a mystery and it made me try to imagine what it would be like to live for centuries. I have re-read this book three times because I love it and can’t stop thinking about the whole story. It is one of the Aussie Chomps series.

Which book in the Aussie Chomps series have you enjoyed reading and why?
The name of the book I read is Who Stole The Mona Lisa? It is one of the Geronimo Stilton series and it is an adventure book.
The main characters are Geronimo Stilton, Benjamin Stilton,Trap Stilton,Thea Stilton, Pirate Cats and Leonardo De Vinci. It is about three Pirate Cats who are going back in time to steal the Mona Lisa, but Geronimo and his friends do not want to let that happen because it could change the future.
I recommend this book to children from 9 to 12 years of age.
I think this book is interesting because it tells you about a very famous artist, inventor and a famous painting; you learn a bit of history while enjoying an exciting adventure!

Have you read any other Geronimo Stilton books? Which did you enjoy reading the most and why?
I read a book called Monkey Mountain and the author is Justin D’ath.
The story is about a person called Sam Fox. He is in year 8 and his teacher Mr Griffin is the oldest teacher in the whole school. Sam is afraid of heights and he used to have a crush on a girl called Tiffany. The problem is that Tiffany loses her bag and Sam wants to find it because he wants Tiffany to like him more then anyone else.
This is a fantasy ( because monkeys fight the people) and an adventure (because they travel and a volcano is threatening to erupt). This story stayed with me because of Sam’s bravery.
I would recommend this book for people in year 5 or 6. It didn’t really have a message it was just fun reading.
