It is the sequel to Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and it was supposed to be followed by Charlie in the White House which was not finished by the author.

Percy Jackson and The Sea Of Monsters is the second book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series. It is the sequel to Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief. The Protagonists of the story are Percy Jackson (Son of Poseidon), Annabeth Chase (Daughter of Athena) and Tyson( Cyclops ). My favorite character is Percy as he is very brave and has the power to control water.
The book starts with Percy and Tyson fighting with a group of cannibals in a dodge ball match after which they end up burning their school. Then they meet up with Annabeth who briefs them about the happenings in Camp Half Blood. Then Percy decides to embark on an journey which may cost him his life- A journey to the sea of monsters or as the mortals call it, The Bermuda Triangle. Its wonderful tot read how they escape from the Laistrygonians, from Charybdis and Scylla and also from the Sirens and Polyphemus. IF you are wondering what these are then get up and grab this book. A movie version of the movie is going to be released on August 16 this year. But as always reading the book is a much better way to understand the story.

Trade and solve was very interesting as well as thrilling too, at the beginning we were divided into different teams. We all got different set of cards. There were two different set of cards- one is yellow and another is blue. We have to find out the riddle by trading our cards with the other teams to get all the pieces of the puzzle and then solve it. We had to follow the given rules. It was quite interesting to negotiate with the other teams to get hold of the particular piece we required to complete our puzzle
In the yellow colour set the team led by Sayooj won the game and in blue set the team led by Nirupam won the game. The team led by Allen could also solve their puzzle.
Later, both the team leaders explained the strategy adopted by their teams to get their cards and to solve the puzzle. The winners got bonus points.
For the Juniors, it was Freeze Zone day. The members of the club were divided into five groups and each one was given a theme to enact. The themes were: harvesting of a field, a death, a film shooting, a cricket match and a railway station.

The Chronicles of Narnia- The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
Author-C S Lewis
Publishers- Harper Collins
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe is a fantasy novel written by C S Lewis which happens in the Fictional land of Narnia. The protagonists of the story are Peter, Edmund, Susan, Lucy and the lion Aslan. The book is dedicated to C S Lewis' goddaughter Lucy Barfield, after whom the character Lucy was made. A movie adaptation of the movie is also there, but in my opinion reading the book is a better way to understand Narnia.
The books starts with the four children living in a Professor's house because of air raids. Then they try to escape from Mrs Macreaddy and venture in to the wardrobe and find themselves in Narnia. With the white which and Aslan there together a lot of problems happen, but if I am to tell them to you now , what is the use of you reading the book? So take this book to know Narnia better even if you have seen the movie because this is written in simple English and is easier to understand than the movie.

Fantastic Mr. Fox
The national bestseller written by Chetan Bhagat, published by Rupa, costs Rs.95 and has 267 pages. I thought of reading this book because I love the movie ‘3 idiots’ very much and have heard good comments about the book too. I liked both the book and the movie.
But I think the book is little different from the movie or rather the movie
is from the book. Firstly, in this book all the three main characters are 5
pointers, which mean they have a low score of 5 point something out of 10 in
their Grade Point Average or GPA. But in the movie, Aamir Khan is a bright student.
There are a number of differences but both are really humorous.
Before reading this book, I thought IIT meant for really brainy fellows,
but I was amazed to read about all kinds of mischief done by these three –
Hari, Ryan and Alok. The cover says it
all - “what ‘not’ to do at IIT”. Also, Hari
loves Neha, who is prof. Cherian’s daughter. This book is mainly about friendship.
I had great fun going through this book. I enjoyed all the fun and fights by
the three best friends, the happenings in their life. I liked Ryan the most. I can’t
forget ‘the mice theory’ ‘Cooperate to Dominate’ and of course ‘Operation
Pendulum’!! Those who haven’t read this book till now might be wondering “what’s
all this!” But I tell you, I’m not going to be a suspense spoiler. Quick! Catch hold of this book and have fun!

Percy Jackson and the Battle Of The Labyrinth is the fourth book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series. The protagonists of the story are Percy Jackson (Son Of Poseidon), Annabeth Chase (Daughter of Athena), Tyson (Cyclops and son Of Poseidon) and Grover Underwood (Satyr). My favorite character is Percy Jackson as he has no problem facing his problems.
The book starts with Percy going to his new school as he blew his old one. But he ends up stirring trouble at his new one too. After that he goes to Camp Half- Blood ( The camp were demigods stay in their summer holidays to train and be safe). There he learns a dreadful news the Luke Castellan (Son of Hermes) has almost succeeded in bringing back Kronos (The lord of Time and the god's greatest enemy). He and Annabeth along with Tyson and Grover go on a dangerous journey which may cost them their life- A journey into the Labyrinth Of Daedalus to stop Luke from bringing back Kronos. To find out what happens after that read this exciting book. It is written in simple English and one gets to know about Greek Mythology. I hope even you all would like reading this book.
AUTHOR:- RICK RIORDAN
NO OF PAGES:-356
MY FAVOURATE:-PERCY ( Foolishly humorous )
The latest book by Rick Riordan it is book with a amazing climax. It is one of the best books by Rick Riordan. Percy Jackson fans be sure to grab this one. It is an superb book a promising read.
After the prophecy of the seven, the representatives of camp half blood travel in their new flying ship The ARGO II , go to meet their roman counterparts at the roman camp. Annabeth is told to follow the Mark of Athena which is something like a treasure hunt.This book has much adventure also mixed with a tiny bit of romance. Also in this book the much awaited reunion of Percy and Annabeth takes place ..........

I was in the fourth group. The task was to depict a scene which was given to the group. One by one had to come and act a role. As the activity is 'Freeze Zone' competition, the group will have to freeze at the end, and should have an similar situation representing the topic. The best group would be selected as the winner. The five topics were - A Police Station, Super Market, Fish Market', 'A Classroom without a Teacher' and 'Fire Rescue'.
Luckily, our group was selected as the winner - The Classroom without a Teacher. We all enjoyed it the most.. Hope to have such activities in the future too. Watch out - the next activity is again the 'Freeze Zone' for the Juniors..
