Two Reading Adventures

We’ve reviewed two adventure books we’re sure you’re not going to be able to put down this summer. Warning – both these books are real page-turners!


Title: Born To Fly
Author: Michael Ferrari


Born To Fly


Born to Fly is the story of eleven-year-old tomboy Bird McGill – it’s set in the year 1941. Ever since she can remember Bird has loved flying in small propeller airplanes with her mechanic dad. So when the local airstrip is turned into a military flight school Bird is in heaven. But when a young Japanese American student named Kenji Fujita joins Bird's class, the entire school seems to be convinced that he's a spy, or at the very least, that he and his uncle want the Japanese to win.


Bird is wary of Kenji, not just because he's Japanese, but because he steals her flight-related topic for a school report and leaves her to write about the boring local marsh weed. But on Bird's first trip to the marsh, she and Kenji accidentally discover real spy activity in the area and Bird realizes that Kenji is actually a stand-up guy. She and Kenji begin an adventure that will shake the town and may even change the future of the United States.


Title: Matisse On The Loose
Author: Georgia Bragg


Matisse On The Loose


Have you ever done something you shouldn't have? But you're a good person and you don't think that it's going to cause any real harm? But then something bad happens and it turns out that you were wrong? Welcome to Matisse's world.


Matisse has finally got the chance to come face to face with the work of his namesake, the great French painter Henri Matisse. The museum where his mom works as head of security is hosting a Matisse exhibit. Matisse thought it would be cool to hang his own artwork - a copy of a famous Matisse painting, Portrait of Pierre - on the museum wall just for a minute.


But then a tour group thinks that it's a real Matisse. So now Matisse's painting hangs in a museum – while the priceless original hangs on Matisse's eccentric family's den wall. A sixth grader should not get caught up in a museum heist. But what if he does?
