Lennox – Year 1

Me and my mom read this book together. I really love Snowden and Droplet, they are my favourite Weatherlings because Snowden has fluffy hair like snow and Droplet has a cape and she puddle ports. I love Ray grey because she is adventurous. Nim is her cloud cat and he explodes all the time! Nim is very cute and fluffy. The cover is pretty and the story is very good but I don’t like the rogues. I really think my friends would Like this book.

Moms note – This was a brilliant and fast paced story. I look forward to reading books 2 and 3 to Lennox.



Lennox – Year 1

Me and my mom read this book together. I really liked that there was a very strange old man that held a very heavy red covered book and the old man asked Lana to help him put the book on the top shelf. My favourite character is Briar Rose because she is brave and pretty. I like the Queen as well. I think my friends would like this book too.

Moms note – We really enjoyed this story. It is a great twist on fairy tales with some really interesting details.

Smile by Raina Telgemeier

Smile is one of the best books that I have ever read. I experienced my love for graphic novels at the start of Year 4 and that has not changed ever since!
Smile is about a girl called Raina who goes to Girl Scouts. One time when Kelli’s mum is dropping of the girls back home they stop at Raina’s house first. So when Kelli’s mum says walk to Raina’s house the girls decide to run and have a race but that was when Raina tried to grab Kelli’s hood and ended up tripping over losing both of her teeth.
This book could also tell people to not always run when your not supposed to. I recommend this because it is absolutely brilliant!




Year 4

Year 4 highly recommend this book. It’s very moving and has some lovely illustrations. It’s a beautiful story of a girl in a mad mean city who steals a bag full of acorns. To get the bag, she promised to plant what was in in it.

The transformation of the city is an emotional reminder of the importance and beauty of nature- an important and very relevant subject matter for today.

Here are some further comments from our class:
George – It is uplifting, mysterious and lovely.
Max – It teaches people about the importance of nature.
Alexie – It teaches kids that little things can make the world a better place.
Imogen – It’s great for those interested in mystery books.
Scarlett- It’s like an adventure and has a happy ending.
Naz – It was really nice how the story started with a deep and dark setting description but then the city becomes picturesque.
William – It teaches us that if you do something wrong, you still have the opportunity to do something good.
Maarya – It teaches us that the heart can change with one small change.

The Land of Stories – The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer

This book is extremely interesting and I haven’t took my eyes off it. In this book there is lovely illustrations but not many! There is a maximum of 24 Chapters and I recommend that you read it.

This book is about two twins called Alex and Conner Bailey. When their grandmother gives them the Land Of Stories (fairy-tale book) Alex gets suspicious from the sound it makes. They both jump inside the book and find many dangers and fantasies!

Read this book! It is amazing and interesting there’s a whole series!

Paige – Year 5

This book is really interesting and nice to read before bed. In this book there is no illustrator because during lockdown JK Rowling put chapters of her book online for children to read then they would draw a picture and JK Rowling would chose one picture to go in the book for each chapter. Children all over the world took part in this.

This book is about a monster called the Ickabog. The monster is an urban myth and everyone has feared it for a long time, although not everyone believes in its existence. We go on a rollercoaster of emotions during this adventure. There are so interesting characters involved and my favourite was Daisy.

Why would I recommend this book?

It is not an ordinary book, it is a nice fantasy story that is easy to read and keeps you hooked, wanting to read more and more! The chapters are short and I read this book really quickly. It was nice to see all the pictures drawn by children around the world. This book was a gift to me and my Dad as we love to read books with each other. We are still finishing off the Harry Potter series (on book 6) and I received the Christmas Pig for my Birthday, which is JK Rowling’s latest book. Can’t wait to read this next!
