Book review: Foxcraft, The mage

Image result for foxcraft The mageDuring the holidays I got to read a book called The Mage, by Inbali Iserles. The mage is the third book in the foxcraft trilogy and i think it's a really good book and those who want to start off reading chapter books in 1st person then read this book. (if you don't want to read this book i highly suggest Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
This was a good book and it followed onto the Main character Isla's journey into the snowlands. Isla's first journey was in the graylands, and her second was in the wildlands so it only made sense that we got to see Isla in the snowlands and eventually the darklands where the mage corrupts with his skree-maa, which is the absorbance of a foxes maa aka life force.
We learn alot about wolves and bishars and foxcraft and the mage is a good book overall. You should go and read The Taken before you read The Elders, or The Mage. Click this link to buy it, on amazon.

Wonder park

Image result for wonder parkOn Wednesday the seventeenth of April. My mum, brothers and I went to go and see the movie wonder park.
WARNING: SPOILERS!!! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SKIP THE SPOILER SECTION GO TO THE BIG GREEN LETTERS!!!!!!
It's about a girl who builds a miniature theme park in her house. Then her mum gets sick and she has to go a away for a while. During that time June (the little girl) gets depressed because it doesn't feel the same without her mum. She puts away the mini park and is obsessed with cleaning and being the mature and sensible one. Junes dad sends her to maths camp and halfway there she worries about him but plans to go back to make a long story short, she ends up at the real life theme park which is overrun with the darkness. She must save the park.
NON SPOILER SECTION STARTS HERE!!!!
Overall I think it was a very good movie, and you should go and watch it.

BYEEEEEEE!!!

     Caged Bird


A free bird leaps
on the back of the wind   
and floats downstream   
till the current ends
and dips his wing
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.


But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and   
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.


The caged bird sings   
with a fearful trill   
of things unknown   
but longed  for still  
and his tune is heard   
on the distant hill   
for the caged bird   
sings of freedom .


The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn
and he names the sky his own


But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams   
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream   
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied   
so he opens his throat to sing.


The caged bird sings   
with a fearful trill   
of things unknown   
but longed for still   
and his tune is heard   
on the distant hill   
for the caged bird   
sings of freedom.


New Vocabulary: trill, seldom,


Metaphor
dips his wing in the orange sun rays
It makes the poem more interesting and makes us imagine it in our heads.
Metaphor
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream   
It makes them think about what the shadow that is screaming look like.

My Haiku: Saviour

As I swim alone
In a lake of great Silence
I’m feeling content

I am feeling free
As the water splashes on
My weightless body

Just as I dive down
Deeper into the water
Something snatches me

I struggle to breathe
I feel a tug from above
And see my Saviour
