The Red Pyramid: By Rick Riordan A Book Report

This 514-page book was narrated by both brother (Carter) and sister (Sadie) and hopped the globe from Egypt to London and New York, as well as several other US locations. It provided plenty of action and was fairly exciting. The siblings both argued with each other as well as dueled evil gods. They always come out on to though and made way for two more books in the upcoming series. There were too many gods and a lot of complicated action to give this book a true A. it was however a pleasure to read and enjoyed by me through out. This first book in the trilogy did come to a foreseeable conclusion but also wet the appetite for more to come. You know that still have a long rod ahead of them and you look for ward to the 2nd and 3rd book in the series. I have already recommended this book to a few friends and will return to the library today and hope they can fix the separated pages. I feel bad about tearing the book apart because I understand it is a hot little commodity in the Radnor Library. Read it today and decide for yourself. Grade B

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
