Night of the giant everything!
By R.L Stine
This episode of the very well written Goosebumps books is one you probably won’t forget. Steven is completely obsessed with magic. And he thinks that he’s the best at it. But eventually he gets a little carried away. When he’s practicing for the talent show with his friends Ava and Courtney he gets three eggs and is juggling them. But then with one slip of his hand they all go tumbling down on Ava. So like any normal person Ava and Courtney decide that they would mix up possibly poisonous mixes from science class… because… logic? But really is that ever a good idea? He could have died! But anyway Steven is doing his last act... Which just so happens to be drinking water while juggling. He starts juggling and Ava puts the cup against his lips and he starts gulping. A bitter taste fills his mouth. He starts choking and yells out he’s been poisoned. And Courtney and Ava run over to him and start… laughing? Seriously it says and I kid you not: I saw Courtney and Ava coming over to me. They were laughing and slapping each other high fives. So Steven runs home and his mum and dad aren’t home. So he thinks that brushing his teeth will help the taste to get out of his mouth. But he realizes that he has to stand on his tiptoes to reach the sink. And then he starts shrinking into his shoes.
But I can’t spoil the whole thing! So I defiantly recommend reading this book.
This Book is very interesting and shows how carless people can be and that actions have consequences.
So overall I give this book a 7/10
But don’t take my word for it go and enjoy it yourself!

Mechanics And Machines

Mechanics and machines
Humanity...we've come a long way. We've used our intellect so well. Yet we've barely scratched the surface of what we could accomplish. But here are some facts about what we have.  

A helping hand

These are some facts about machines that help humanity do exhausting and continuous work.  Did you know that modern day cranes are just later versions of Greek's work? They used ropes and wooden poles to lift up things like tree trunks.  Ever heard of a tunnel boring machine? No? Well I’m not blaming you because they spend all their time underground digging tunnels. And one of these actually dug the tunnel between France and England!  If you’re a kid and you’re like me when you think of bulldozers you think of destroying everything. But did you know that bulldozers are just adapted Holt farm tractors that were used to plough fields?


These are some facts about machines that we use to transport ourselves.  Did you know that the first heavier than air flying machine was the Wright flyer made by the Wright brothers? It was powered by a small combustion engine that they made in their windmill.

The first ever floating machine was a hot air balloon. Created by the Montgolfier brothers it, was the first ever machine to stay in the air when it went up.
well I hope you enjoyed this and that you learned something new!
