5.0 out of 5 stars This is good., 17 April 2014

This review is from: On the Edge (Paperback)
Having read much of Nigel Hinton's output, I was looking forward to his new book for the excellent Barrington Stoke publishers. The previous short stories have been a really good read and have proved exceedingly popular in the classroom. On The Edge did not disappoint me!

The plot is rock solid and, despite the brevity of the book, Nigel Hinton develops some well-rounded and interesting characters. I found it to be a real page-turner and read it in one sitting. I am convinced that pupils in the middle years will find it equally riveting! Despite his age, this writer always seems to be able to connect with his readership. I definitely advise you to give it a go. If you haven't read Nigel Hinton's other Barrington Stoke publications, they are well-worth the effort!

4.0 out of 5 stars a funny but clever book, 17 Oct 2003
This review is from: Dogs Don't Tell Jokes (Paperback)
Dogs don't Tell Jokes is a very funny book that got me in fits with the jokes. I found them funny even though they are supposed to be very boring in the book.I thought it was very catching the way Louis Sachar added a few catches in the book. I loved the way he made it sound as if nobody thought he was funny. I don't recommend small children to read it because there are a few bits that are not suitable for undre 10's. Above the age of 10 would understand and enjoy the book alot more, and overall, i liked the book alot. It was completely different to Holes and The Boy Who Lost His Face!

The drugs and dealing were realistic.It's good the way the end turns out. 13 and 14 year olds would enjoy reading it.
