2.0 out of 5 stars Flour Babies book review, 26 Mar 2004
This review is from: Flour Babies (Paperback)
The naughtiest class in the school, 4C, have been given the task of looking after some flour babies. The stotry is about a boy called Simon Martin who thinks that looking after sacks of flour is a rubbish idea. But Simon falls in love with with his baby. Will Simon find out why his dad left the family when Simon was a kid.
The story focusses on a 14 year old boy called Simon Martin and his flour baby. Simon also tries to find out where his dad went when he left the family. He recongnises how hard it must of been for his mum to look after him all by herself. When Simons dad left, he was whistling a tune. Simons goes everywhere he can to try and find out the words to the song.
In the story a few messages have been put into the book. One of them isnot to have babies too young. To find out the others you will have to read the book.
In the story I enjoyed the bit where Simon realised that there wasn't going to be a grand explosion and the whole class got angry at him for believing in him. But when Simon actually realises that all the babies are just sacks of flour, he takes them out the bin bag and kicks and chucks them around the hallway. The hallway is now covered with flour and there are white clouds of flour floating above him. But at the moment Mr Cartright, his form teacher, just can't be bovered to tell him off. It has to be the best scene in the book.
I think that children of 8-12 years would enjoy this book because if you were any younger than 8, you ouldn't be able to understand the story because of the vocabulary in it. I f you were any older than 12 you might find the story a bit childsh and boring.
