Two Of A Kind (25) - Closer Than Ever (Two of a Kind Diaries)
Two Of A Kind (25) - Closer Than Ever (Two of a Kind Diaries)
by Mary-Kate Olsen
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 6 July 2008
Mary Kate and Ashley are twin sisters; they go to the same school (White Oak); they are roomies in Chicago but at school they have never scared a dorm - until now! Ashley's roommate and Mary Kate's place a bet with Mary Kate that she if she can get Ashley to stay up past midnight (since she sleeps before light out) and to give away some of her clothes (her wardrobe bursts open every time you open it because it is stuffed with old clothes and junk), then they will do her laundry; if not she will do theirs! The twins can't wait to share a dorm but will Mary Kate win the secret bet?

This book is the 25th book of the `Two of a Kind' series and this is one of the best books. I would rate it 9.5/10 because it has loads of parts that are really irrelevant.


Mr. Strong and the Flood (Mr. Men New Story Library)
Mr. Strong and the Flood (Mr. Men New Story Library)
by Roger Hargreaves
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, 18 May 2008
When it has been raining for days and days and days, there is usually a problem and there is one for Farmer Fields: his sheep were on a small bit of grassy island (which used to be a tall hill and they were right at the top) and the water rose higher and higher and higher. Could anyone help?

This book is a magnificent accomplishment for Roger Hargreaves which he ought to be really satisfied with. It is part of an extra series of books - with ten books in it, about Mr Men and Little Miss as they have more exciting adventures!

This is a pretty petite paperback with striking pictures, appropriate language and, overall, is a delight to read and enjoy.


Little Miss Naughty and the Good Fairy (Little Miss Library)
Little Miss Naughty and the Good Fairy (Little Miss Library)
by Roger Hargreaves
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars delightful, 18 May 2008
In this book, the lovable Little Miss Naughty goes to fairyland where she meets the Good Fairy and decides to do something very, very naughty: she was planning to steal the Good Fairy's wands and she was also thinking about using it to do things that are naughty and would cause lots of havoc, chaos, confusion, disorder and mayhem everywhere. But little did she know everything done by using the wand would turn good...
This is a lovely little book with beautiful illustrations, suitable words and glittery wings for Little Miss Naughty: overall, a delight to read and enjoy.
This is a great achievement for Roger Hargreaves which he should really be proud of.


Disney Fairies - The Trouble With Tink: Chapter Book
Disney Fairies - The Trouble With Tink: Chapter Book

4.0 out of 5 stars BRILL BOOK, 18 May 2008
Every fairy has a talent; whether it is for being excellent with water or with flying. There are so many types of talents.

Tinkerbell is a pot and pans fairy and she is probably the best, but when she looses her hammer, rumours spread that she is losing her talent. She has a spare one but she left it somewhere - at Peter Pan's hideout! Now that those two dear old friends don't talk to each other, Tinkerbell doesn't want to go back to get her hammer. Even more problems now, as the queen's bathtub is leaking and the other pots and pans fairies think that someone else should do the job. Oh what will poor old Tink do? Find out in this book...

I think that this book is absolutely brilliant and it is great for girls who like the Disney Fairies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fab for little ones... not for me, 18 May 2008
This review is from: Winnie the Pooh (Hardcover)
Meet the adorable, ponderous Pooh Bear; the cute, funny, little Piglet; the bouncy, lovable Tigger and everyone else who reside in the Hundred Acre Wood in this fabulous book with fabulous short stories about these fabulous characters' adventures.

As a little child I never really liked Winnie the Pooh but now, I am 10, I think it is great. I am not too fond of the Disney one but the one by AA Milne is great! I love EH Shepard's illustrations which really make the book lovely. I think this book was worth every penny - a real delight to read, especially at bedtime!

I love the story about when Piglet's home was floating because of the terrible rainstorm and it is ingenious how his friends get him back to land.

Dear Del
Dear Del
by Alison Prince
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILL BOOK, 18 May 2008
This review is from: Dear Del (Paperback)
This book starts with a very short letter after the whole story had finished; it is also repeated at the end of the story which is quite nice and very unique - I loved this idea!

Fran is lonely on her island home and unhappy at school. Her brother, Barney, is autistic and can be a problem sometimes. Her parents own the general store for the island so the boy likes to help out in the shop. The family decide to partake in this Holiday scheme where a city child stays on the island for a week. When the children arrive, Fran hopes with her heart that they get the chubby, friendly looking, happy girl. But when they get the other girl, (who steals, does graffiti and a lot of other vandalising things), their lives change forever...

The author of this book is a gifted writer. I have read another one of her books which is for younger children and hope to read a lot of her other great kid's stories.

Meet everyone's favourite patchwork in another great adventure. See how he teaches his friends to enjoy the snow when the other elephants think that it is cold in the hot jungle even though it is only a teeny weenie bit chilly. They get to go ice skating on the frozen pond; they get a chance to they make snow elephants; and last but certainly not least, they make snow balls and have great snow ball fights. The other huge grumpy mammals learn that the jungle is not very cold at all and they change their minds. I love this book; it is beautifully illustrated; the subject interesting; all the great characters are lovable,specially Elmer.


My Brother's Famous Bottom
My Brother's Famous Bottom

5.0 out of 5 stars fab and funtastic, 18 May 2008
Nicholas has a very, very, very weird family: a dad who has crazy money making ideas; a Granny who falls in love with a sixty year old motorbike driving called Lancelot (father of Mr Tugg next door - also known as a Martian); a mum who was pregnant but the car won't go who she gets very desperate and finally a twin baby brother and sister nick named Cheese and Tomato (because of the place they were born). This book is about Cheese (whose proper name is James) who has a very wonderful bum and is auditioned for a nappy advert. Will everything work out fine, after all all he has to do is win? Jeremy Strong has flawlessly captured the sense of ideal humour that is just fantastic for children aged 6 and over moreover really anyone would laugh their socks off (including grown ups).


Sam Sticks and Delilah (Storybooks)
Sam Sticks and Delilah (Storybooks)
by Diana Hendry
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILL BOOK, 17 May 2008
Sam is a little boy whose parents got divorced and ever since life has not been the same for him, his dad and his dog, Delilah. Every morning, his dad is saying that the canine has to go and every morning, when he says that, the lump in Sam's throat gets bigger and bigger and bigger. One day, Sam decides that he will run away and earn money by doing a paper round. Will there be another solution to all the havoc that the big dog is causing?

I would definitely rate this book, which is so good it is now among my favourite books, 10/ 10 and would recommend it to children of all ages.

If your parents are divorced I guess it might be upsetting but remember it is never ever your fault no matter what anyone says.


Winter Story: Sticker Book (Brambly hedge)
Winter Story: Sticker Book (Brambly hedge)
by Jill Barklem
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for little ones... not for me, 17 May 2008
Nearly every picture has a blank spot in it - except the really small ones - and to fill them in, you have to stick the stickers in. This story is adapted from the TV animation of it all though it is not shown any more. It is a Bramley Hedge story and here is the storyline: Wilfred Toadflax was a little mouse who wanted, very dearly, to see it snow that winter. It did snow and he was very excited; so were his brothers and sisters. I have got to sliding books about some adventures at Bramley Hedge but this one is more exciting, or at least I think. I would rate this book 7/10 and would recommend it to young children who are aged three to six who like stickers - like my little brother.
