In last literature circle, we read and discuss Alice Trough the Looking-Glass. We enjoy it. I did as a Passage Person.
Alice Trough the Looking-Glass was written by Lewis Carroll. He is a very famous person. As you know, he wrote Alice in Wonderland.
Alice Through the Looking-Glass is the sequel to Alice in Wonderland. Alice enter the wonderland again. This time, she meets some new characters. One of the most famous character is Humpty Dumpty. He is typically portrayed as an anthropomorphic egg. I have heard his name in Mother Goose.
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king's horses
And all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again. (p.43)
I think this story is loved by many people all over the world because it is connected with Mother Goose. I want to know other book which is connected with Mother Goose.

The final exam is coming soon. Do you study for it? I read Apollo's Gold in my hiatus. I like Cambridge English Readers series but I read this story for the first time. It is a little complex for me.
The main character is Liz who is an English archaeologist. She studies and teaches archaeology in Athens. She is very busy. One day, she goes to the beautiful island in order to relax. But she get involve in a dangerous accident...
If I were Liz, I would not have taken the mysterious yacht. I think Liz is childish.
Anyway, this story is thrilling. If you like a thrilling story, I recommend to read it.

Gulliver picked up one of the troublemakers and open his mouth.The little man wriggled and howled with terror. He was sure he was going to be eaten. (p.15)
Have you ever read Gulliver's Travels or heard it? For me, I had heard that title but had not read. This time is my first reading Gulliver's Travels. It is a famous story and Jonathan Swift who wrote this story is famous person. According to the sites, he was born on November 30 and my birthday is also November 30! Our birthday is same! But he was born in 1667 and I was born in 1999. He is 332 years older than I. It is interesting. I felt familiar with him.
By the way this title is Gulliver's travels. The noun 'travel' is the plural form. When I look at this title at the library, I wonder why. Did Gulliver travel many times? But the answer for my question is in the textbook which is used at English Grammar class. When we want to say 'travel' as a noun, we can say it as a plural form. We cannot say 'a travel'. My knowledge increased.

The next morning, Jack made a big decision. He put on a brave face and took Tom to the nearest police station. (p.51)
Have you ever been asked "Where's your homework?" by your teacher? When I was high school student, I sometimes forgot my homework. In the beginning of this story, Jack is asked that thing by his teacher, Mr Fish. Jack's week starts badly. Mr Fish is a very distinctive person. I think most of students took the class American Literature so you already know Moby Dick, right? It is a Great White Whale. He is known as Moby Dick. It is because the name seems to fit his face.
Please read the quotation. Can you guess what happened? This sentence, ''took Tom to the nearest police station'' seems to have a bad accident. What happened? Who is Tom? It is a readable book so please read it.
