  5. Gaby lost and found. Gaby lost and found is a very fantastic book. There's this girl named Gaby and she had a pet named feather. Once feather got lost and Gaby was very worried. She went to the shelter and she asked if anyone has seen her and they said yes. Then she saw her cat and she was very exited. So then she went back home with feather. I felt bad for Gaby because her dad only give her $5.00 every day for her food and also her dad didn't love her and Gaby didn't love him either. Gaby had a best friend named Rosa. Rosa was very nice to her and Gaby was nice to her as well. This book is my favorite because it has feather in it and I really love dog and cat. This book is very easy to read and I think you are going to enjoy it if u read this book.
