Title of book:

Horrid Henry

Rating : 10/10

Age group : 7-10yrs

Overall view : Funny and unusual

Description : Horrid Henry is a naughty boy who is very predictable. His favourite band is the Killer Boy Rats. He dislikes his parents, Moody Margaret, Sour Susan, vegetables and mostly his brother Peter. An action packed book with four stories which are : Horrid Henry's perfect day, Horrid Henry's dance class, Horrid Henry and Moody Margaret and Horrid Henry's Holiday. Be prepared to be Horridified! I like this book because it is funny and it is good to have a book that is not like the others in so far as he is naughty.

9781858810706

...is a hilarious and odd children's book for ages of 7-11yrs (approx.) The main character has a full name of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. His father leads a whole tribe of Vikings and Hiccup is one of them. His dream is to become a dragon trainer, although a huge task is set - to go into a cave of sleeping dragons and to steal one.

Also, he has to save the Vikings from a colossal

man-eating beast (a Dragon).  But can Hiccup do it?

 

Rating : 10/10

Would definitely read it again!

This book is totally hilarious!  It had me laughing

from start to finish, with Jake leaving his little

‘gifts’ for Mr Gum and the fairy with the frying pan.  

You will love the adventures of Polly and Friday as

they cope with the naughty Mr Gum and his side-kick

Billy William the Third.  After all life is like a lemon meringue!!

You will want to read this book again and again……I did!

Title of Book:

Cockatoos

It was really funny and it was brilliant.

I liked it where you had to find the cockatoos

in their hiding place. It is about where the

cockatoos found the crack in a wall and

they escaped. But in the end the cockatoos

went back into their nice warm home.

When their owner looked in he saw them

and then he said '' Good morning my

fine feather friends''.

Title of Book:

Mr Gum and the Secret Hideout

I would highly recommend this book it made

me laugh out loud in places!

The main characters are Mr Gum and Billy William.

 Mr Gum hates a lot of things like toys, the colour yellow,

 Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays……..you get the point!!

I don’t want to ruin the story for you but Mr Gum and Billy William have evil plans for Lamonic Bibber.  You will have to read it to see what happens.

Rating: I give this book a 7/10 and wouldn’t read it again as there are too many other books I want to read!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Dog Days

Book review by Jaidan

Title of Book:

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

 

They are totally funny and hilarious. I like the

orange Do-it-Yourself book because it gives you a

sneek peek of the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book.

I got nearly all of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books

except the Movie Diary and Cabin Fever.

My dad bought me Cabin Fever on the weekend and let me take it back home with me.

9780141324906

I really liked this book because you can't wait to

read more when you get to the middle and you

wonder whats going to happen next.

Some parts are funny when stuff goes wrong and

this book is one of my favourites.

 

Rating: I give this book 9/10

This is a really good book about a boy called Ben who has a really boring Granny.  She always eats cabbage and has bad wind. One day Ben finds out that she is a gangsta and they go on an adventure to steal the CROWN JEWELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But Granny's nosey neighbour, Mr Parker, is very suspicious. Trust me, as soon as you start to read Gangsta Granny you will immediately laugh out loud!  WARNING! This book made me cry.
