The book The Storm is about a dog named Seabold who gets stuck in the ocean in a storm and crashes into land by Pandora’s light house and Pandora saves him. In the book a cat named Pandora lives in a lighthouse for 4 long years by herself. But one day a dog named Seabold crashed into the land where Pandora lived, Pandora found him saved him and let him stay there. A couple days later three mice named Whistler, Lila and Tiny washed up in a broke down box and in the end they all… well you will have to read the book to find out. The lesson to be learned is to never go out on a boat in a storm.

I liked this book because Pandora saves Seabold and the mice. I think this book is unique because there are talking animals. I liked Pandora because she saves lives, and I like Seabold because I go on my boat in the summer time and Seabold goes on his boat in the summer time.

I believe this book would be perfect for people in 3rd and 4th grade. This book might be good for readers who enjoy reading animal fiction because it is about animals that talk and do human things. The genre of this book of this book is adventure I think this book will interest people / readers who like adventure and can’t stop reading it.
