Opposites
Opposites
by Mick Inkpen
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars delightful, 6 July 2008
This review is from: Opposites (Paperback)
Nick Butterworth is a fantastic author; he has written the wonderful Percy the Park Keeper series, which is now a true classic.
Mick Inkpen is a fabulous illustrator; he has written and illustrated the Kipper books, the Blue Balloon and a lot more - I want to be just like him when I'm older.

Together they are absolutely fantabulous and it wasn't just the reviewers (like me) who loved Percy and Kipper - kids, mums and dads and teachers alike adore with these two wonderful characters.

The illustrations are so delightfully drawn and the simple vocabulary is just superb for little kids. It is a fun and factual book for all ages to enjoy and to cherish forever so they can pass it down for generations.

Adventures of Mole (Animals of Farthing Wood)
by Colin Dann
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars naughty naughty, 6 July 2008
As the animals of Farthing Wood are moving, they stop to look for Toad who is quite lost. Mole decides to dig up some worms as he is feeling a bit peckish. After a while, he hears his dear friend Badger and everybody else looking for him and calling his name so he decides to go back until he sees a big juicy worm; he goes to eat it. When he goes back to the surface, where have all of his friends gone? This book is a small extract from the main book `The Animals of Farthing Wood' about this loveable little character as the creatures move to White Deer Park. It has been a bit adapted from the series of books and the film.


Dumbo (My First Disney Storybook)
Dumbo (My First Disney Storybook)
by Walt Disney
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars OK for little ones... not for me, 6 July 2008
Mrs. Jumbo unhappily looks on how babies are carries by storks to associate circus animals but as yet a little elephant makes a most awkward package, so her so is just last to arrive, but soon becomes a butt of all the jokes for the envious group because of his more then jumbo sized ears, so he gets called Dumbo. When she can't stomach the community making fun of her firstborn, she is locked up as crazy monster, and the taunted kid finds himself all alone; well, except for a self-appointed mentor-protector, Timothy Q. Mouse -subside, yet ideal to scare the jealous herd - who keeps motivating Dumbo. Alas inspiring the circus director to make Dumbo the top (literally) of an elephant pyramid stunt literally brings the house down, so he's demoted to clown. When everything seems lost, they accidentally discover how they ended up in a tree with a bunch of crows. Timothy gives the baby elephant a magic feather to make him fly but soon he discovers he can fly with out it...

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STUFF!, 6 July 2008
Penn is a very sporty, average, trouble making, lying teenager who has an extremely unusual but beautiful gift - being able to play the piano like an angel! He is taken to the police station a lot and he is the funny boy. His friend Bates is the opposite: he tends to stay out of trouble, can barely lie, isn't very athletic but can't play the piano properly but has a talent for singing - but only when he is drunk! They are the main characters in the book along with Sylvia, Smeeton, the teachers at Beehive Secondary School and many other people. Patrick Pennington (Penn) also has very long hair which terribly irritates everyone. He can't do sports until he cuts it - and has to practice on the piano instead! Will he able to cut his hair in time to keep the trophy for the school?

4.0 out of 5 stars divorces can be emotional, 6 July 2008
Jeff, Karen and Amy Newman are the children of parents that get divorced. Jeff is a very popular boy but only had a heart for Mary Louise Rumberger. And he is mum's favourite. Amy is the youngest and their father's favourite. The main character of this book is no-one's favourite but she keeps a diary about the fights between her mother and father. Every time it is getting worse and worse. Soon they decide to get divorced. She goes through a complete variety of feelings from irritation to sorrow and hate to love, as most families experience during a divorce. She also very much wants to do anything she can to get her parents back together. This book is brilliant for both adults and children to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars heavenly, 6 July 2008
Penny was plump; Mark was different; Marigold barely ever talked and lived on a smelly street. All three were very different but had one thing similar - they were bullied by Barry. So were a lot of kids but they were the most. That was until Celeste came. Look in a dictionary what does Celeste mean? It should say something like `heavenly' or `celestial'. Well that was one of the clues that the children realised when she first arrived. Another clue was that she was going to be called Angelica until her grandmother swooped down. Her father had dropped hr off but had to fly. And there were many other incidents but the pupils knew she was an angel. She changed the life of those three children.


THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES: GOBLINS ATTACK SPECIAL EDITION OF THE SEEING STONE VOLUME ONE WITH EXCLUSIVE LOST CHAPTER.
THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES: GOBLINS ATTACK SPECIAL EDITION OF THE SEEING STONE VOLUME ONE WITH EXCLUSIVE LOST CHAPTER.
by Tony DiTerlizzi
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars zeus will even like it!, 6 July 2008
The Spiderwick Chronicles is a movie in cinemas in the United Kingdom (Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland) at the moment and maybe in other countries as well but I don't know. The story is based on some books about the children in A6 size (when folded like a book) and so are these other extra books. This is one of the extra books about the three children and his is the first book of the additional books. Here is a quick description of the children: Jared Grace - Simon is his twin, though Jared is much more quick-tempered and bold. Simon Grace - he is quiet and kind; he loves animals, and has quite a lot of pets. Mallory Grace - Jared and Simon's elder sister, who is a fencer, an ability which comes in handy when defending herself.

Title of book: Troll Trouble
Author: Tony Diterlizzi and Holly Black
Publication date: 2007
Pages: 62

A bit about the book:

This is a special edition and is part of a sequel of three books, which you have to read in order. In this book, they are just about to go into the woods and are wondering through the woods when this thing comes out. There is a picture of the creature but even without it anyone could easily imagine the thing in their head, find out what it is in this book.

The main settings:
Spiderwick Estate/ Woods

The main characters:
Jared, Mallory and Simon

Any weak bits?
At the beginning there is a poem and the rhyming is not very good: sticks and Spiderwick, drastic and fantastic, etc.

Unputdownable?
Not really.

"Meet the Robinsons " (Disney Magical Story)
"Meet the Robinsons " (Disney Magical Story)
by No Author
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars universal change in store for us!, 6 July 2008
Lewis is a brilliant inventor with a surprising number of amazing inventions to this credit. His latest and most ambitious not to mention impressive project is the Memory Scanner to help him find his real mother so he can be part of a (small) happy family. Before he can find her, at the school science fair, it is stolen by this weird bowler hat guy and his companion, the living, breathing, thinking, hat Doris. Lewis decides to give up and when he finally has, Wilbur Robinson comes as a total stranger to take the hero to the future to track down the thief and finally find his mother. But things don't always go the way we planned and the story ends in a strangely unexpected twist of fate. Recommended for 8 - 12 year olds to read by themselves or any aged child to read with their parents or older siblings.
