Prom Date (Point Horror)
Prom Date (Point Horror)
by Diane Hoh
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read! Amazing!, 29 Jan 2013
I am in year 8 and I have finished reading Prom DATE by Diane Hoh which is a horror book. I would definitely recommend people who love gory things to read this book. Very interesting! I was nearly half way into the book and something gory had already has happened! I give it 4 out of 5 stars as on one page there are a few (two or three) missing letters but you still know what the author is trying to say. Excellent book and very hard to put down!


An Elephant in the Garden
An Elephant in the Garden
by Michael Morpurgo
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, pleasing, super book!!!, 29 Jan 2013
I am in year 8 and I have recently read `An Elephant In The Garden' written by Michael Morpurgo. It's a great book written by a great author! Michael Morpurgo is my favourite author and I definitely recommend his books. Michael creates mixed emotions so in some parts of the book you could feel really sad and sorry for the characters while also feeling adventurous about the journey ahead of them. I would definitely rate this book 5/5 and you will soon see why. In this book, there are 2 point of views. The first is of an everyday life of a boy and his mother. His mother works in a hospital where this kind old lady, Elizabeth, is being treated. The boy had a day off school and they spent hours upon hours talking about the old lady's life as she grew up. That was the second point of view: the lady telling the mother and the son about her life as if it was actually happening. The old lady as a child has to get out of Dresden, her hometown, along with her mum, brother and her mums elephant from the zoo as its being bombed. They have to make it to her aunties in time. But will they? They find a young British fighter from the other team but Elizabeth soon falls in love with him. Whoever reads this book will love it and would definitely recommend this to others as a great book!


Beast Quest: 33: Fang the Bat Fiend
Beast Quest: 33: Fang the Bat Fiend
by Adam Blade
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Some scary bits!, 29 Jan 2013
33: Fang, the Bat Fiend
The team travel to a strange gold mine where the slightest mistake means instant punishment from the monster... Fang. This story has some scary parts where you think, `What's going to happen?' Fang steals all of the miners' sight and uses the sight for himself (bats can't see very well). The savage beast seems impossible to destroy, but Adam Blake made a good storyline. Behind the cave is a flooded river, where a town should be. The water was transported from the cave mine to the town, therefore flooding it. Tom destroys the wall and Fang drowns and turns into hundreds of normal bats. Quickly, with Elenna's help, Tom grabs the next ingredient (the red jewel) and gets to the surface from a hole in the roof. Monster fans should love Fang, despite all his evilness, he is a cool monster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommend to anyone!, 29 Jan 2013
This is an amazing book that I would definitely recommend to a friend, no, anyone! It is funny and heart-warming and is full of surprises! Young Hiccup Horrendous the Third is son of Stoick the Vast, leader of the Viking tribe. To become a Viking warrior, Hiccup must catch a dragon. Despite the mission to get one went awfully wrong and nearly killed him, he got one that was tiny and had no teeth, hence its name: Toothless.
Eventually, he is half trained, but when the day comes of the contest, where is dragon is inspected, Hiccup, all his friends and foes, fail. They are sent to exile, but could stay one night due to a storm. The next morning, two of the biggest dragon species are on the beach. Hiccup has a plan; get them to fight. The plan worked but Hiccup nearly got eaten by one, but Toothless saved him. Unfortunately, he `died'. But before he was burned, he rose up, he was really in a deep coma whilst his body repaired itself. And dragons were thought to be entirely selfish. Toothless proved the dragon books wrong.

A Simples Life: The Life and Times of Aleksandr Orlov
A Simples Life: The Life and Times of Aleksandr Orlov
by Aleksandr Orlov
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.79

5.0 out of 5 stars This is funny!, 29 Jan 2013
I read this book when I did Readathon at school. I'm in year 8.

The `Compare the Meerkat' advert with Alekandr Orlov were a big hit. So big, that a book has been made all about the Orlov family. Aleksandr's distant ancestors. This is an enjoyable book that meerkat lovers will especially like.
The story starts with Aleksandr's great, great, great, great Granddad Kefentse. He and his faithful friend travel from a distant land to settle in Russia. The rest of his clan soon follows. Later, his great grandson Vitaly is leading the clan, but the mongoose army, led by `Mongis Kahn' attacks. Luckily, the meerkats win. Vitaly is wounded, but when he is in the hospital, he meets his love Valentine. They soon had 2 children, Ivan and Grigory. They all now live in a mansion, but Ivan gambled it away. Now gypsykats, the Orlovs settle down. Soon, Grigory finds a glamorous gypsykat called Anastasia. Next they have a child, Anton. Anton was a good, clever meerpup and came up with the idea of comparing meerkats for a living. Now the Orlov family live in town. Anton is grown up and falls in love with Valeria, the mayor's daughter. They have a meerpup, Aleksandr (finally!). Sadly, due to Anton's early boxing career, Anton dies. Aleksandr carries on with his business with his new partner Sergei. When they start advertising, disaster happens when they are not asked for meerkats, but for insurance! This is where the adverts we know and love comes in. This is an amazing, funny and interesting book. Definitely recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars For dinosaur lovers!, 29 Jan 2013
This review is from: Z-Rex (Paperback)
I read this when we did Readathon at school; I'm in year 8.

An utterly amazing book that ay dinosaur / Jurrasic Park lovers will love! The author is the imaginative Steve Cole, who has made other dinosaur stories, including Astrosaurs and Z. Rex's sequels: Z. Raptor and Z. Apocalypse. Normal teenager Alex Adlar has his world turned upside down when his dad doesn't come home from a special meeting for works. A group of people from `Geneflow Solutions' come to kidnap him, then suddenly a flying green dinosaur wipes out Geneflow workers and saves Adam, even though his flat falls down. Soon, Geneflow come to get Adam again, but he is suddenly saved again by the Z. Red, Zed.
Knowing that Zed and Adam are being hunted, Zed flies from New Mexico to Edinburgh, Scotland. Geneflow find them and kidnap them. They take them to their HQ in Scotland still. Zed is forced to fight a Y. Rex. Fortunately, Zed just about wins and saves Adam and his dad, Bill Adler.
A sad ending occurs though, Zed has to leave as he no longer `fits in with this world'. Full of suspense, blood and adventure. A book that I highly recommend to fans of dinosaurs and Anthony Horowitz novels.

Anthony Horowitz's fifth Alex Rider book is an amazing thriller which is full of suspense, tension and secrets being revealed that have been kept too long. Alex goes on a school trip to Venice. His only intention was to find Scorpia, an evil, shadowy and world-wide organisation, but soon he ends up being almost killed by them, then part of them. Scorpia set Alex his first assignment: killing head of MI6 - Mrs Jones. At the last minute, Alex joins MI6 to stop operation `invisible sword'. They soon discover that Scorpia's children had their new term injections, a microscopic piece of gold with poison inside was injected. A Terahertz beam can destroy the gold at the right height and frequency, therefore releasing the poison and killing the children. There is an epic battle between MI6 and Scorpia. Alex has to try and succeed in his mission... At the end though, someone is watching...

5.0 out of 5 stars This will make you laugh, 29 Jan 2013
This review is from: Derek The Sheep (Paperback)
I read this for Readathon at school. I'm in year 8.

A fun filled book where every page is guaranteed to make you laugh. This short comic book by Gary Northfield is made up of extracts from the Beano. The hilarious images are a perfect thing to go with the funny captions. There are 13 stories in total and they are all good for kids. I would also recommend this book to people because it just is brilliant.
