Book Review: Who Cloned the President? Book Review: Who Cloned the President?

Aimon Jalees | Class VI-A | NNP-1

Who Cloned the President is a hilarious story about two cloned presidents of the United States. The writer of this mysterious story is Ron Roy and illustrations are done by Timothy Bush.

I found it to be very interesting and witty. The story starts with two fourth graders, a girl named KC and her best friend Marshall. They both noticed right away when the President of the United States started acting funny on TV; while signing some papers he behaved very weird. The main thing KC and Marshall noticed was that the president was signing the papers with the wrong hand. Suspecting that something was wrong, they reached the White House after facing many hurdles, and tested the presidents to find out which one was real. After confirmation, they quickly informed the police. The rest of the people involved were also arrested. They saved the president and received gold medals for their bravery.

Overall the story was exciting, but too unbelievable to take seriously. I felt that it would have been better if it was more real and somewhat a little simpler. Still, the story is good for those who love to read mysteries.
Movie Review: James and the Giant Peach Movie Review: James and the Giant Peach

'James and the Giant Peach' is one of the most famous books written by Roald Dahl and shortly after the book came the movie which became just as famous as the book version.

The movie 'James and the giant Peach' revolves around the story of a young boy named James Henry Trotter whose parents have died and he is forced to live with his two cruel aunts who treat him with the utmost disregard. James is tired of living his life with his aunts and wishes that he could go to the Empire State Building in New York 'Where dreams come true'. James is just spending another day of his miserable life with his aunts when he finds a peach growing on anearby tree which hadn't grown a fruit for years and the peach keeps growing until it grows to the size of his Aunt's house. James finds a hole in the peach and climbs into it and that is when his journey to New York begins along with the giant insects in the peach.

'James and the giant peach' is a very interesting, fun as well as funny movie. The characters give this story light and dark moments. Mr. Centipede's funny remarks and comments and the rest of the insects lighten up the movie with their comedy and sincerity for each other and James. They all manage to make it to New York but in order to find out what lies ahead of them, you must watch the movie yourself.

Though this movie would not be suitable for the older generation, I would recommend this movie to the young and enthusiastic generations of today.
