Sarah Plain and Tall
Sarah plain and tall is a great book. It is a fiction book. It was written by Patricia MacLauchlan. I enjoyed reading this book I do suggest to read this book.
The main characters of this book are Sarah, Caleb, Anna, and there dad. I can identify with Sarah because we both love the sea. Pa pa is creative and funny. Seal is Sarah's cat. The cat disappears in the night.
The story takes place in the 1900's. They are in the middle of no where in Tennessee. They live on a farm with fields that reminds Sarah of the sea in Maine. There is a barn that the kids like to play in, and they keep all the animals there. The house is old but in good shape.
I think the author is trying to say people that aren't from where you are just like you. I learned to try new things and to trust people. Pa pa saw a big storm coming and he knew the roof needed to be fix so Sarah and Pa pa fix the roof together and ran inside.
Two kids and their dad live together on a farm. One day the dad put a flier out looking for a new wife because the kid's mom died and they need more help. Sarah replied to his flier saying that she is plain, tall, and loves the sea. When she got there was happy but still sad. The kids helped her feel better. They went swimming and played in the hay. Sarah wanted to lean how to ride horse and drive. One day Sarah goes to town and its dark now and she not home yet. The kids are sitting inside and the dogs start to bark and every body runs out side it Sarah.
I thought it was a great book good story, good book. The book was fun. It was slightly predicable. I would give this book four stars

Sweet

A nice short quick read. I read the author's other book Baby and really liked it. I heard about this but for some reason hadn't read it. Now I have and it is a sweet story.

    It' ok...

    It is a very short book, and it appeals to younger children as oppesed to older ones. I found myself getting bored at times, but there ARE some heartwarming parts to it.

    Bland...Boring...I'd like to meet the judges who gave this book the Newbery Medal!

    I read this book three years ago, so I don't remember the complete plot. But what I do remember is that it stunk. I was astonished this book won the medal...I guess that was just a bad year for books. Granted, it was well written, but it's just not my style. There was probably just one scene that even had a hint of action, and that was when they were riding a wagon. Wow.
