This book is simple, but unique in its own way. This story is based on 7 stuffed animals and 1 little boy, Christopher Robbin. The boy has many adventures with these 7 animals in the book, going from Pooh trying to out smart bees, to finding Eeyore's tail. There's Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga, And Roo. Pooh is a silly bear, and not much for brains, he makes up for it with his appetite. Piglet, (my favorite character!!!) is smart, but is not very brave. Rabbit, he is the grumpy-ish one, but is the smartest of all of them, and pretty brave. Eeyore is sad, and pity's himself a lot, and doesn't really care if he goes on a adventure or not. Owl thinks he is wise, smart, and very resourceful...when he really isn't all that. Kanga is the mother of Roo, and is motherly and easygoing. Roo, (my other favorite character!!!), is oblivious and loves a little adventure. Over all, the first "Winnie-The-Pooh" book is a very cute book. Even though it is a kids book, its still very enjoyable for older kids/adults. I would suggest this book to almost anyone,as it is a great read!

Tom Sawyer... is insane. He becomes a pirate, pretends to be dead, then becomes a robber at the age of around 12. Tom Sawyer has plans for his thousands of dollars he is going to get from robbers, in a haunted house. He believes in God, which makes him a pirate that doesn't steal (because stealing is a sin). He loves Robin Hood, hates school, loves to be in the spot light, and is scared of Injun Joe. He goes to grave yards at midnight, stays over night in a haunted house, and gets lost in caves. He loves to trick his other friends and class mates. This is a good book, not the best in my opinion. It's a very exciting book, but I wouldn't read it again, it's one of those books that you need to read because everyone references the book. Over all, a exciting book but more of a one-time read for me.
