My opinion on the topic of should the adoptive child have contact with their biological parent or should they not have any contact with them, is that adopted children should not have any contact with their biological parents because if they do, their relationship with their new parents will become worse. The reason for that will be that they won´t care about their new parents because they know about their real parents. However I do believe that adopted children should know that he/she is adopted at an older age, because if you tell them when they're like 10 years old they will not respect you as they grow older because they know that you are not their real parents. They should be told at an age where they will understand, that depends on the type of child. The type of adoption that I think is mature is the ¨closed¨ adoption.

I don't really know much about moustaches anyway, however I am not really a fan. Well besides the pringles dude, but that's an exception. I don't think that moustaches will be a huge trend anytime soon, they were a thing of the past. Even if someone has a moustache nowadays, they are most likely to have a beard. Overall, I don't really know about moustaches and in the end of the day it's your opinion.

In the book Redwall, nothing interesting is happening. Until I reached the end of the chapter. You see, a family is being held prisoners at the base where Cluny's army is at. And Matthias wants to go save them, however the Abbot and all the elders are telling him not to do anything because attacking a base full of enemies is not worth it. Then Matthias went to the statue of Martin the Warrior, and he was wondering what he would of done. After that, Cornflower (a girl he knew, who works at a farm) tells him that he his none like anyone else, and that he is a warrior. These statements motivate Matthias, and he stands up with his chin high. I think this is foreshadowing that he will go to that base and fight everyone to save that family.

They have let Cluny enter Redwall to talk to the Abbot. The conversation was full of threats. However, I didn't quite understand why did they just not fight. And also Cluny saw a dream that showed all the bad things he has done over his lifetime. And there was a mouses shadow in the dream and I think it's Matthias. I think it's Matthias because people have been telling him that he is like Martin the warrior, and he was very confident in arguing with Cluny. Well let's keep reading and find out!
A man has told Matthias that Martin the warrior was as young as he is. He also said that his actions are similar to Martin's. This gets me thinking that maybe Matthias will become a new warrior. Also Cluny (the bad guy) has just received a new army of rats, and they have planned to attack Redwall. One of the only people in Redwall that speaks sense is Matthias, so I think he will become Redwall's next warrior!

Three Reasons Why The Giver Book is Better Than The Movie
The book and the movie both show the main idea that the story was heading towards but in slightly different ways. The book stands out between the two because in the book, the community isn’t shown as evil as it does in the movie. Remember that the goal of the community with sameness was to be more safe. In the movie Asher, one of Jonas’s best friend, uses his plane to throw Jonas in the water after they found him. The purpose of that was to kill him. That doesn’t look like an action that a community whose goal is safety, would do. They were trying to create a conflict between the community and Jonas. This may be also why the movie is told in first person rather than 3rd person. This changes the idea that's in your mind when you watch the movie. If someone watches this movie before he has ever heard of or read the book. He will mostly see the conflict between the community and Jonas, with a little bits of stuff from the book.
What I dislike about the movie is that Asher is a pilot. Asher is known for not knowing all the words that a person should know. And now he is all serious and now he has the privilege to fly drones! The only reason why they put Asher as a pilot is to create another conflict. The conflict between Jonas and Asher. This didn’t add anything to story, and it just seemed like extra. In the book Asher is a park recreation manager and that suits his personality way better than a pilot.
Another thing that really makes no sense for this movie to have is Jonas’s and Fiona’s relationship. It has nothing to do with the actual purpose of the story, and it doesn’t make the movie any better. Also when Jonas and Fiona go down that big arch, why did the chief elder discuss this with The Giver. They should of tried to make a connection with Jonas himself with The Giver. Keep in mind all this going down the arch is not in the book. Yes I do understand how the relationship relates to having emotions, but Jonas has already seen the memory of emotions and Fiona doesn't understand it at all. That makes it even worse!
Overall the book stands out compared to the movie because of these three reasons. One being that the movie shows the community being evil. Second, that someone like Asher is a pilot. Third is the relationship between Jonas and Fiona. All three of these things are only incorporated in the movie. Also overall the movie contains too many changes, and those changes kind of change the whole idea of the story. That's what the book is better than the movie.
