Just A Myth

This is Readalot, I'm Abigail Bronte and I hope you enjoy this blog post! I've been thinking about different kinds of stories this week when I remembered myths and lengends. A myth is a story that is part true, part fiction. For example, Theseus And The Minotaur is a well known myth and a great one too! Why not read some myths or find out more about them at http://myths.e2bn.org/mythsandlegends/. You can even write your own myth there and if you wish to find out information then go on the "about" label. Just before I say a book and author of the week, I'd like to remind you about something. The Readalot Writing Competition starts on Sunday, 11th March 2012! If you would like to enter, write your story and copy and paste it on an email so that I can read it . If you don't have a computer either borrow one or make sure that you are counting the words while writing on a notepad or something. Your story cannot be over 750 words and the story must have at least a bit of friendship in it. Next time I will also reveal a closing date. Anyway, book and author of the week are... The Worry Website and Louisa May Alcott! The Worry Website is an all time favourite of mine. It's written by Jacqueline Wilson and it's about a class who have a lot of worries and a fun but mad teacher.

Mr Speed, the class teacher creates a Worry Website on the computer in the classroom. At first no one wants to put a worry but soon the class are desperate for help and it does come to them. However, when the children write the worries their name is not displayed due to the fact that they may not want anyone to know who they are. This book isn funny and a great read so please look at it! Louisa May Alcott is dead now but if you go a little while back in time, she was the J.K.Rowling! Louisa wrote famous tales including Little Women, Moods and Jo's boys. She was American and is buried in Concord, in peace.

I had to choose a Website Of The Week because there is a website I discovered yesterday that I just fell in love with. And that is... First News! First News is a newspaper for kids but they have a website where you can read the news there. You can even write your own articles there so don't miss out! My email is abbybronte@hotmail.co.uk so please email me if you need to or you'd just like a chat. Bye! Abigail Bronte

New Year!

Welcome back everyone! It's me Abigail Bronte and this year I've got tons more to share with you! Firstly I'm going to thank every single person who has supported, commented and taken part in the Christmas Wishes Community on my blog. Even if you just look at Readalot or any other blog I've created I will be truly grateful. Second, I'm going to tell you about the presents I got! My biggest gift was definitely my new laptop which I will now be using to write posts! I was given a lot of stories and of course the One Direction CD (which I love!). I'd be really interested to hear what Santa and your family gave to you so email me at abbybronte@hotmail.co.uk to tell me! And now it's time for the first 2012 book review and best author on Readalot! They are... The School Story and Michael Morpurgo! The School Story is written by Andrew Clements and is a book I remeber picking up in my school library a while back. The book is all about a girl named Natalie who writes an amazing story, so good her best friend, Zoe, thinks it should get published. Zoe thinks getting "The Cheater" (Natalie's story) published will be pretty easy as Natalie's Mum is the editor for a well known publishing house. Natalie and Zoe make up pen names so that if their cunning plan does work they won't be indentified. Will Natalie's book get published? And will Zoe become the star agent that she says she is? Read the book!

I've probably already talked about this man but I have to again. Michael Morpurgo is a dearly adored, famous author. He has written over one hundred books and they are all first class. My peronsal favourites are Kaspar Prince Of Cats and Billy The Kid, two very detailed and significant books. I've always wondered, how does Morpurgo come up with such fantastic books? He must have really had to think about some of them. Anyway, I guess Michael Morpurgo is a very detailed and significant person, sometimes similar to his books. So if you haven't read any of his books, read one because they are the best ever!

Now you might have seen on my profile that I have made two other blogs; Kool Kids Newspaper and The Dumping Ground Diary. Kool Kids Newspaper is like an online newspaper for kids so it will be every week. Kool Kids is something that I hope everybody reads because I believe it can be very good if I try hard enough and with your help it can move just that little bit faster.I've also made a blog called The Dumping Ground Diary. If you watch Tracy Beaker Returns I expect you'll enjoy this. Basically the blog is supposed to be like an online social network which the kids and care workers at Elm Tree House can go on. Every week a new sort of diary entry or update will be written so don't miss out!

Enough from me! Have a lovely Sunday and keep reading! Lots of love, Abigail Bronte xoxo
