Rick Riordan
5 Stars
Reader: Ricky Bordales   Age: 11
Review: The Last Olympian is a great book. It has action, comedy and excitment all in one book. All the books are great, but this is the best so far. What I have read of his work was great, but none would ever amount to the excellence of this. I look forward to reading more of Rick Riordan's books!

Review: There were four little bears that sat on the chairs and the big brown bear wanted to sit on the chair, but there were no chairs left. They scoot their chairs together and it made one big chair. Will there be enough room for the bears? I like the book because I like all about bears!
