Goblins Don't Play Video Games

Wow! When I got done reading this book, I felt great! This book is about four kids named Liza, Eddie, Howie, and Melody. In the story, Melody has a video game called "Master Goblin". Soon, the kids get a new computer teacher (Mr. Goble) and he acts like a goblin! Later, he buys a house that looks like the house in Melody's video game! Mr. Goble is acting a bit too nice-like giving the kids candy bars for no reason. Soon, Melody goes to the library to find out how to catch goblins. I can't tell you what happens next, so you should read the story!

I think this was a very good book. I liked it because it is about a video game. My favorite part was when Mr. Goble gave out candy bars. If my teacher did that, I would really like school! I liked the lesson that they learned - never try to catch a goblin that is in a video game! (Just kidding!) The real lesson the kids learned is to never jump to conclusions about who a person really is.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, video games, or fantasy creatures. If you like any of these, then you should get up, go to a library, and read it! Please read this book, because you will feel proud of yourself when you're done!
