Bob's Best Friend - softback (Bartram, Simon Series)
Bob's Best Friend - softback (Bartram, Simon Series)
by Simon Bartram
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A cleverly written and illustrated book, 9 Aug. 2010
This is not written in conventional prose which could be a little off putting for a parent to read to a child but children love it. the pictures are wonderfully detailed and, in a way, are more relevant to the story than the text. A great book to share and one for early readers to try on their own.


The Rescue Party (Tales From Percy's Park)
The Rescue Party (Tales From Percy's Park)
by Nick Butterworth
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully illustrated children's book, 9 Aug. 2010
|The illustrations in this book really bring it to life for young children. the text can seem a little wordy but Percy has become a well loved character and this, one of his first adventures is a wonderful immaginative story for children to enjoy over and over again.


Whatever Next!
Whatever Next!
by Jill Murphy
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A book that has quickly become a well loved classic, 9 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Whatever Next! (Paperback)
A simple story for young children with wonderful ilustrations which have helped this book to become a true classic. The story flows easily with chilren being able to relate to the imagination of the little bear pretending to travel to the moon in a simple cardboard box.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 6 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Nim's Island (Paperback)
I bought this book to read to my class of 7 year olds and they loved it. The main character Nim had enough about her to appeal to all children and the idea of living on a deserted island with an inventor dad and a seal lion as a best friend really grabbed the immgaination. It does have some tricky concepts to deal with and it is not a simple book, it does jump about a bit but it makes it a 'meaty' book to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A true adventure story, 6 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Nim's Island [DVD] (DVD)
This is a true adventure story. It appeals equally to girls and boys which is always a plus, ahving enough humour, suspense and escapism for all children. The main character Nim is strong and brave throughout, whist the story maintained a sense of reality (sort of) the plot twists and turns a little but children seem to be able to keep up far better than I did! A perfect family film


After the Party
After the Party
by Lisa Jewell
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A moving story, 6 Aug. 2010
This review is from: After the Party (Paperback)
Another gem from Lisa Jewell. I have read all of her previous works and looked forward to settling down with this book, I read Ralph's Party many years ago and didn't remember too much about it so it didn't feel as though this was a sequel or was building on from characters I already knew well. The story moved quickly through the changes that are taking place in Jem and ralph's relationship, taking us through some tricky moments for them both. This was a really well written book that i would happily recommend, and there is no real need to have read Ralph's Party first, although I am now tempted to go back and read it again to put some of the things that happened in this book into context.


Holes
Holes
by Louis Sachar
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly written!, 19 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Holes (Paperback)
I love this book! Despite the target audience being a young teenager, every time I read it I discover something new. The main character Stanley Yelnats comes from a family of misfortune where nothing ever seems to go right, and this is seen as one of the reasons why he finds himself in a Juvenille Correction Camp digging holes. The story twists and turns, with the characters unfolding themselves throughout. As the story twists to an end you find yourself finally putting all of the pieces of this very cleverly written book together, and wanting to read it again immediately to see what was missed on the first reading. Read it!

1.0 out of 5 stars not funny at all, 19 Feb. 2010
I bought this book after reading great reviews, the 'extremely funny' 'outstanding' claims. And that it had been shortlised for the orange Prize. I found the story to be totally unbelieveable and far from comical or funny. The characters were weak and the main character very difficult to believe in. Far from the book that it claimed to be.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to follow, 19 Feb. 2010
This review is from: The Shadow Of The Wind (Paperback)
I was really surprised to not enjoy this book after having read so many rave reviews. I found the whole story really hard to follow, needing to keep jumping back to remind myself of the characters and how they fitted together. The mystery of the book and the shaddowy character had me hooked for some of the book but I hate to admit to having given up on it before even getting half way.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 19 Feb. 2010
This review is from: This Charming Man (Paperback)
I have read all of Marian Keyes books and have always enjoyed them, finding them to be easy to read page turners, but this one was a break from the norm. I hadn't realised that the story was about domestic violence and would not have read the book if I had known. Some of the scenes were fairly graphic and unpleasant to read. The characters were not very well developed in the story and they were quite hard to believe in. Very disappointed.
