The master of them is called Tang Sanzang. The other three people are Sun Wukong, Zhu Wuneng, and Sha Wujing. They help Tang Sanzang go to the west. They meet a lot of monsters on the way. Tang Sanzang falls in love with a kind monster named Bai Gujing, who is very beautiful.

Several years later, Xiaozi and Jiangye meet again. Jiangye is sorry that he used to bully her and wants to get her forgiveness. Xiaozi is touched by Jiangye’ s sincerity and forgives him.

This film is meaningful and serious. Its meaning is worth thinking about. Bullying exists everywhere. For those who are weaker, we should communicate with them patiently and treat them kindly. Don’t bully them for fun.

Passage 5 – By Wang Xin

The book Three Body is written by Liu Cixin, a Chinese science fiction writer.The book has won awards nationwide and internationally like Hugo Award.Three Body is a fiction with an international reputation.

The book mainly talks about a story between us human being and Three Body, another civilization of the universe.They find us and want to destroy us to get our room as their living condition is very very bad – they have three suns! But at last, we humans win and live in the space.

I think Three Body is the best science fiction I have ever read. The writer gives a vivid account of the dark nature of the universe and the knowledge of physics that still does not exist.

Passage 6 – By TONY

THE STORIED LIFE OF A.J.FIKRY

The book THE STORIED LIFE OF A.J.FIKRY, means “A Book Store on an Island” in Chinese. The author of the book is Gabrielle Zevin, born in 1977. She is a writer who is very young and is deep in love with reading and writing.

The book is, in fact, a novel. AJ is the hero in the story. He is in his middle age and lives on an island, running a bookstore. The bookstore on the island is a wooden house of Victorian style, with a porch which reads “None is a lonely island, every book is a world”…

But he is never a lucky dog. A lot of unfortunate things happen to him. His wife is killed in a car accident, and his bookstore is in bad business condition, etc. He becomes a lonely island…

When he is about to give up his life, a very cute girl named Maya appears in his life. When Maya meets AJ, she is only two years old. Maya’s coming brightens AJ’s life, smiles come back to AJ’s face. With the help of Maya and many other friends on the island, AJ walks out of the terrible situation in his life.

There is one sentence which touches me much in this book. “Everyone has one hardest year in their life, making their life beautiful and vast.” We all know it is a cruel world. Life is always full of challenges. In spite of that, we should believe that the future is great and everything is going to be okay!
