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.

3.0 out of 5 stars funny, 17 May 2008
Mr Bean is here again and this time he wants to be an author of a book, to get a new and expensive computer and wants his story to be turned into a movie by the creators of ET. In his diary, he has got lots of letters from various people, photographs from his new and his old camera, pictures drawn by him, his story about a princess who needs rescuing and a knight on his journey to find her and of course very important diary dates.
This book is hilarious and includes many of the crazy adventures of the mad man (as shown on TV). I would rate this book 7/ 10 and would recommend it to Mr Bean fans, especially the ones who like the animated series.


Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

3.0 out of 5 stars ALL RIGHT, 17 May 2008
Everyone knows about Harry Potter now; whether it is through movies, the news, (about JK Rowling going to court to stop a fan publishing an encyclopaedia about her world of witches, wizards and magic), or something else, it doesn't really matter - what matters is that all of this stuff started with this one book.
This is the first, and probably the best, book in the series. It is about Harry's home life with his horrible relatives, his time in Diagon Alley looking for what he needs and his first year at Hogwarts with Ron, Hermione and others.
This book has two names: the original and initial name (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone) and the American name (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone).
This is a great story and one of my favourite books too.

1.0 out of 5 stars this stinks - rubbish, 17 May 2008
This review is from: Notso Hotso (Paperback)
Anne Fine is a children's laureate but this book that she has written is just rubbish (and that is only the polite way to say it); it let's down her good quality as if it got washed away with the rain or blown away with the wind (like my garden fence). This is aimed at both girls and boys aged around 6 - 9 years old.

The book `Notso Hotso' (this one) is as if it is told by the dog himself: it is kind of like a dairy in a way. It has black and white illustrations, a wide range of vocabulary, lots of dialogue, a problem or two, and lots of other things that are good for pre school children's stories - the only bad thing is the subject which is pretty dead boring.


I Wish I Were a Pilot (Barefoot Board Books)
I Wish I Were a Pilot (Barefoot Board Books)
by Stella Blackstone
Edition: Board book
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for little ones... not for me, 17 May 2008
There are lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of jobs where people have to travel. A few of them are occupations like being a pilot of a plane or a balloonist if you wanted to soar high in the beautiful blue sky; if you preferred the sea, you could be a sailor or a captain of a submarine; if you wanted to go green, you could be a cyclist o r maybe a cowboy. Anyway, all of these types of work are featured in this book plus a lot more. Another great thing about this book is that it rhymes all the way through in couplets and the vocabulary range is great for little kids; boys would like it most as they usually like travelling jobs more than girls do.


Favourite Fairy Tales (Rainbow Colour)
Favourite Fairy Tales (Rainbow Colour)
by Rene Cloke
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STUFF!, 17 May 2008
Want to collect all of very well known and well loved stories like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Shoemaker and the Elves, and Hansel and Gretel; not to mention Cinderella and Rumpelstiltskin? You want each one in a hardback book? Can't find any thin enough to fit on you shelf? Then, look no further - this book is a hardback book, with beautiful illustrations, and has got lots of fairytales and folktales compiled together into one, big, wonderful book! This book is just plain fantastic and I absolutely love it, so does my younger brother and my older friend! It is very suitable for all ages from 1 - 100 and beyond who are looking for a good read, and I would rate it 10/10!


Alice in Wonderland (Classics)
Alice in Wonderland (Classics)
by Lewis Carroll
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars ALL RIGHT!, 17 May 2008
Meet Lewis Carroll's most famous little character - Alice, the girl who shrank (but also grew far too awfully large) and went to Wonderland. You can also meet the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the grinning Cheshire cat (who guards the way to the Queen of Heart's Castle) and of course the Queen of Hearts who likes to play croquet (so do I)! This book has also got another Lewis Carroll story in it and it has a very funny poem in it... I personally would have called `Wonderland' a different name - probably `Fun-but-StrangeLand' or `Crazyworld' or something like that but Mr Carroll must have done it to interest the reader and to make them think the book is very exciting - it thought it was quite exciting indeed and would definitely, without a doubt rate the brilliant book 8/10; 8 - 12 year olds would enjoy it.


I'm Scared! (Kitty & Friends)
I'm Scared! (Kitty & Friends)
by Bel Mooney
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, 17 May 2008
Bel Mooney has written a very successful, enjoyable and much loved series of brilliant books - they are the books about Kitty! This is the seventh one in it and before it is `But You Promised!', `I KNOW!', `IT'S NOT FAIR!', `I DON'T WANT TO!', `I CAN'T FIND IT!' and finally last but not least `WHY NOT?'. They are all about a little girl who is up to no good most of the time and in this book she is frightened. Kitty is terrified of the dark and her new teacher but some other people are also afraid of certain things: things like not being liked, or being in front of a lot of people...


The Railway Children (Children's Classics)

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit oldfashioned but still fantastic!, 17 May 2008
This story is about some children who are shattered after the disappearance of their father but the railway line is always there to lift their sad spirits; so are the Old Gentleman and the porter, Perks. Nevertheless, how will they ever find out the reason of their dear father went missing?
I think that this book is a bit old fashioned but it is still very, very, very good; the author is the next (or actually the previous) Agatha Christy!
E Nesbit is the author of this book and many, many others. Some of the titles of her other works include: `The Amulet', `The Phoenix and the Carpet', and `The Five Children and It'
