Booktalk #1
After a family tragedy, Emily, Navin, and their mother move to an ancestral home to start a new life……. But they made a mistake…………. The author of amulet is Kazu Kibuishi Hi, my name is Emily call me Em for short. Everything changed when my father died; he died in a car crash when I was eight. We had to move to my great great grandpa’s house. But As soon as I stepped foot in that house I knew something was wrong. The house was a complete mess, so Navin (my brother) my mom and I went to clean the house up. But there was something pulling me to a room in front of the washroom and what I saw changed my life. It changed my life for good…… The book is interesting because of its detailed adventure and classic fantasy; it feels like you’re in the book. I learned that don’t stop exploring and don’t keep giving up on your dreams and start thinking about you’re future. And never let your brother play with the amulet. So if you like graphic books filled with adventures, cliffhangers and magic, AMULET will be the perfect book for you!! (sukaina shukur,, k-12 student)
