"The lift up flaps are lovely and it is very well illustrated so even smaller children who cannot read yet can enjoy" - by Waaaht
I got this for my daughter who was starting to ask lots of questions of how the body worked. The lift up flaps are lovely and it is very well illustrated so even smaller children who cannot read yet can enjoy it

"Remains a great story for children" - by Robin Joyce
Rereading this set of magical tales was a pleasant return to childhood. Although the name changes grated on me and some of the language also sounded as though it had been changed - 'Wow', would that be 1950s language? - the stories are a pleasant mix of excitement, danger, children winning against unpleasant adults and sheer magic and good times. There is enough fun to counteract the possible rebellion from modern readers against the moral imperatives, but the latter are not really onerous and might assist a parent in need.For example, iIf these children do some housework, why not you? On the other hand, what can we offer to measure up against a magic faraway tree and enchanted wood? Perhaps only a rereading for children who have enjoyed the stories the first time. Unlike other of Byton's works there is little apparent racism and even the sexism is muted. ... full review

"Old Granny Lies" - by Mister Jones
We read this book in our Year 4 class.
It was 5 stars because it was interesting and funny, especially her farts!
We also learnt a bit about plumbing.
We disliked the ending because it was a bit sad. We like it because Granny told some good stories and we found out that the queen was actually quite funny. There is also some good scrabble playing.
This book would be good for people who like reading longer stories as well as Ganstas.
It is also a good book for teachers because it shows that not all Grannys are boring.
It is good for people who like adventures and mysteries.
Grannys could read it to their grandchildren.
The ending was funny but sad and it is a really amazing book.

"Brilliant I am told" - by Al
When I flipped through "Gangsta Granny" before giving it to my 7 year old grandson, I thought it might be a step too far, or too early, for him but I was wrong; he read through it in two sittings and tells me that it is brilliant and that he did not have any difficulty with reading or understanding it (maybe with a little help from his mother).
All the same applies to "Mr Stink" and "Ratburger" and he is now pestering me for more David Walliams books.

"A must read for children" - by william beardon
This book is a must for any child, the story and the meaning behind it are life lessons that shouldn't be avoided, the illustrations are excellent and very child friendly making the whole experience a joy for a child to read and parents to enjoy reading to their children.
I highly recommend not only this book but all the books in the series

"good reader for that interim stage" - by Chimster
my son and I read this book together. I find it difficult to find interesting books with characters and a plot for his reading stage. He is beginning to be a confident reader. the story is very good and quite exciting especially toward the end. it is set out in a diary format, so was quite good and like all julia donaldson's stories oodling imagination
