ReadWriteThink offers this lesson plan that gives great ideas for keeping the book report fresh and interesting. It targets grades 3-5, but its ideas can be adapted for older students as well. Focusing on the elements of fiction, the plan shows how students can make staple-less books that show that they understand plot, character, setting, conflict, and theme. The plan includes a preview of the lesson, the resources needed, standards that are addressed, the instructional plan, and additional resources. In addition to this specific alternative to a book report, there is a link to an English Journal article, “Fifty Alternatives to the Book Report."
