A-Read’s Recs

This is a series based on the Book Talks my 8-year-old son writes for school. As you’ll see, he is not ready for publication, but he knows what he likes.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

I was inspired to read this book because I like the series.

The story takes place in England.

The main character in the book is Harry.

Here is how I would describe the main character: He is a 14 year old boy that is a wizard. He lost his parents to the evil lord Voldemort but he survived.

Another important character is Cedric Diggory.

Here is how I would describe this character: He is a 17 year old wizard who is one of the Triwizard Tournament champions. Cedric and Harry helped each other with the tournament.

The story is about four young wizards from three wizard schools.

The main problem is Harry got entered into the tournament even though he isn’t yet 17.

I liked this book because Professor Mad Eye Moody taught them the unforgiveable curses.

A connection I made while reading this book was Harry and I really like to fly and Harry is really good at it.

I would recommend this book to [his best friend] because we both like the series.

I give this book 5 stars out of 5.

(He was so into this book that he didn’t use any yellow sticky notes.)

  1. Aww cute and I totally agree with his rating 🙂

  2. He’s already reading Harry Potter! That’s awesome. Are the yellow sticky notes for talking to the text?

  3. HAHAHAHA! Your son likes to fly too! Mine owns a jet pack I’ve searched long and hard for but never found.

    This was awesome! And my fave book of the series! Best review of it yet! Yes the magic was wonderful! Mad Eye and the curses was great but I loved it when he was underwater the best.

  4. I agree with your son, Vicki. I think this was the best of the series.

  5. Awww, it’s so cute to hear what the young ones think about what they read. I like that Harry Potter can fly too! Great review! ❤

  6. Pretty impressive analysis there – identifying the main problem of the book! And I’m right there with him – I’d love to fly too.

  7. Love his “cut to the chase” style. Maybe he should write my pitches.

  8. So cute! I agree with his rating too [g]
    I wish I’d made notes when I first read The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, when I was his age… I wonder what I would’ve said?

    He’s awesome and at such a young age too! May I borrow him for my review writing?
