Penguin Poem

 

 

Penguins

Swimming with such grace

But on land

They fall on their face

 

Hunting for fish

It’s a skill

It’s an art

All we do

Is push around a shopping cart

 

Adapted in so many ways

But it’s still a challenge

To take on the waves

 

The bonds they form are strong

Although it’s tough no to drop the eggs

Held between their little legs

 

Their job doesn’t come with ease

Feeling the harsh wind and snow

The little chick may freeze

 

The penguins from Happy Feet

Sing amazing songs

But the truth is

When you hear the real bird sing

You’d rather hear dings and dongs

SilverFin Book Review

 

 

 

SilverFin: A James Bond Adventure by Charlie Higson is a very well written book. The author created the character James Bond in his younger age into probably what James Bond really was in his youth. In the book his uncle Max was a spy, and he told young James of his many adventures and being captured, and his quick escapes. James is inspired by his stories and wants to have grand adventures like his uncle. And that's when his adventure really takes off.

The book starts out when he’s at a new school, and makes an enemy in his first week there. On James’s train ride home for the holiday break James helps out a ragged young man named Red Kelly sneak aboard and they become friends instantly. He is on his way to investigate his brotherS' disappearance and James Bond quickly offers to help. They look around a loch called Loch SilverFin, where Red’s brother disappeared. James and Red bump into a spy snooping around the loch investigating the father of James’s old enemy, Randolph Hellebore’s actions. This spy says Randolph is working something in his castle on an island in Loch SilverFin. Something so dangerous and wild, the US or European government didn’t want any part in it. Randolph has a sick twisted mind, and is a very rich and powerful man. He has connections with the police and he could get away with murder, in fact, he did. But when the chubby spy falls into the loch and meets his death, it’s up to Red Kelly and James Bond and a little help from James’s old foe George Hellebore, nothing more than a couple of determined teens to put a stop to this crazy, evil man.

I really enjoyed this book; it was a real page-turner once the story develops. I finished the whole second half of the book in a day because it was so good. I would defiantly recommend this book; it’s a perfect example of how power corrupts. And it has a great story. I would defiantly read the sequel. The young James Bond gets in a lot of binds and he finds unthinkable ways out. This book really shows how clever this secret agent is, even in his younger years.

First of all, amazing job creating that Line Rider. How long did it take to make?
James Bond as a young person is an intriguing premise for a book and you did a fine job reviewing it. Sounds like it has all the suspense I enjoy in a good read, also.
