Ms. Berk's class has been busy putting together a class newspaper, and that's NO JOKE! While reading it I came across a book review to share!
Goodnight Mister Tom
Review by Molly
My name is Molly, I am nine years old and in Ms.Berks 4th grade class. I obviously go to Buckman and live in Portland Oregon and I decided to review a book called Goodnight Mr. Tom for you.
Goodnight Mister Tom is set in England during the Second World War in the 1940’s. Eight-year-old William Beech was evacuated from London during the Blitz (city bombing) and separated from his mother to live in a small village called Little Weirwold. With a secret history, a pale weak William comes to stay with Tom, an angry older man with a sad history of his own. During Willie’s stay they get more attached to each other and
Tom starts realizing Willie’s abusive past, while Willie begins to learn about Tom’s sad history. Along the way Willie meets his first ever friends. He becomes particularly close to Zach a warm-hearted, outgoing, adventurous boy (the opposite of Willie). This novel is heartbreaking but at the same time heartwarming. I hope you liked reading this book review and hopefully you'll read Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian someday!
