Julia dosent want to do silkworms for Patrick and hers wiggle project. The more she gets into it the more she wants to do it. There are many ways that the story goes. Most arent what you predict. If you want to find out about the ending read the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Project Mulberry by Linda Sue Park
"I thought of a project that you might be able to do," she said quietly. "Really?" I said at the same time that Patrick said," hat is it?" I stopped scraping the plate I was holding. My mom's eyes twinkled at me. "Worms," she said. I stared at her for a second. "Worms?" I said. My mom nodded. "We'd raise worms?" I said. "You mean, like, for fishermen to use as bait?" Project Mulberry, written by Linda sue park, is a fictional book about a Korean girl named Julia and Patrick.
In Plainfield, United States of America, lived a girl named Julia and, of course, her best buddy, Patrick. They are in a club called WGGL, shortened for "work-grow-give-live." In that club, they have to do a project, but they don't know what to do. They wanted an animal project, so they looked all over the animal section to see if there were any good topics. Unfortunately, they couldn't find one. They were thinking and thinking until Julia's mom thought of an idea- a silk worm project. "My grandfather raised silk worms in Korea,"."It's really quite interesting, and you get an extra product."
This book is a really fun and exciting book that I want to recommend to my class mates. I want to recommend it to them because I liked it and I think my class mates are going to enjoy it too. First, I really like this book because it was a realistic fiction book and I really like realistic fiction books. Whenever I read them, I feel like I am the main character. Also, this is a unique book about silk worms because not a lot of people think of this idea and I personally think that it is a COOL idea? So I recommend this book to my fellow class mates.

This book is great! I liked the teamwork. It was great because when ever a chapter ended, the author would say little secrets,background information,and mistakes. It was good teamwork because Patrick and Julia worked together to make the silkworm project. I also liked when Julia would pretend to b a secret agent because she didn`t really wanna do the silkworm project. I wouldn't wanna do it either because worms are slimy.
I would recommend this book to a friend. I liked the part when they looked up information about the silkworm project because then Patrick would say facts and details about them that i have never knew. For example, silkworms have silk that you can sow with. I also liked the part when the eggs came because that's where Julia, her brother Kenny, and Patrick started working together to keep the eggs safe. Each of them had jobs of there own to do. It was cool reading about what they all do to help keep then safe! ; D

I thought this book would be boring and got it because I read another book by this author and it was really good. When I got to the middle I really liked it. It has alot of facts about silkworms but you start to enjoy them. I was wondering what I would do if I was in this situation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Project Mulberry traces an extra credit project between two young 'future farmers' who plan to take the project to the state fair, and win! The have the wonderful idea of combining areas to win by raising an animal, and then use the product from that animal to create something brand new. With Julia's mother's assitance silkworms and silk are decided on. This book is very careful at discussing the fusion of two different cultures and touches even further on the importance of tolerance and acceptance. It's a must read!Was this review helpful?

Project Mulberry by Linda Sue Park takes place in Plainfield, CT. This story is realistic fiction and has 221 pages. It is about a girl who makes a friend who¿s name is Patrick. They met when she moved to Plainfield. They become really good friends and are involved in a after school club called Work-Grow-Give-Live or WGGW but Julia and Patrick call it wiggle club. They signed up for the club after it had already started and the two friends were assigned a project on animal husbandry. Julia¿s mom gave them a suggestion. Her suggestion was that they do a project on silk worms because when Julia¿s mom lived in Korea her grandmother raised silk worms. Julia faced some problems but eventually got over them. Julia can be nice but can also hide her feelings easily. Patrick is more caring and outgoing. There was a part in this story that I liked the most. The part was when near the end Kenny gives Julia a Connecticut coin which was what she and Patrick were looking for, for their collection. Kenny had this coin because he wanted to start a collection of his own so he could be like his sister. In return Julia gave him the coins she found but that she already had in her collection. I thought that this part was a nice brother-sister moment. This story is very good and I would recommend it to anyone who likes realistic fiction.Was this review helpful?
