    We are reading Super Finn in our class at the moment. We are enjoying it a lot. We laughed when the spider scared Mr Patel.
    The story is about a school kid that wants to be a super hero. He is planning on saving Umbaba a World Vision kid.
    We will tell you what we think when we finish it.
    Thanks for reccommending this book for us Zac

    Hi Everyone!
    I personally LOVE and GO CRAZY about the two best series of all time Skulduggery Pleasant and the hard to miss Harry Potter!
    Skulduggery Pleasant is great and I CAN NOT wait for the next one (NO. 6 in the series) Death Bringer and the funny thing is it’s on my birthday! So hopefully i’ll be getting that for a present!
    Also Harry Potter is just fantabulous and I recommend any reluctant readers to try out Skulduggery and or Harry Potter!
    Thanks See yas!

    Hi I have read the Skuludggery Plesant Series and they are amazing!
    Skulduggery Pleasant is about a crime fighting detective skeleton and his new assistant Stephinie Edgley. There are many gasps and thrills in this book with all the breath taking things happening. When you have finished the series i’m sure you would agree with me.
    I love Skuludggery Pleasant so much because of all the great thrills and Mr Pleasant’s funny remarks.

    “Stairs,” Valkyrie said, disappointed.
    “Not just ordinary stairs,” Skulduggery told her as he led the way down. “Magic stairs.”
    “Oh, yes.”
    She followed him into the darkness. “How are they magic?”
    “They just are.”
    “In what way?”
    “In a magicky way.”
    She glared at the back of his head. “They aren’t magic at all, are they?”
    “Not really.”

    Now we are reading Goodnight Mr Tom. It is a really gripping and emotional book about world war 2. I think it is one of the best books I have ever read and it is by Michelle Magorian… I think thats how you spell her name anyway?

    Analise said,

    I have just read Diary of a wimpy kid: the third wheel by Jeff Kinney. It is an awesome book about Greg, the main character, trying to find a date to the school’s valentines dance. It is a good book for kids aged between 9 to 12

    I’ve been reading a book called Knitwits that is about a boy called charlie that makes a bet to Alice Pepper to knit a sweater for his baby brother or sister, if he succeeds he gets to have Alice Pepper’s skull collection and if he loses he’d have to give Alice Pepper $5 dollars for the rest of his life. I rate it 8/10 and I think it is suitable for ages 8-13

    The Drovers Quest By Susan Brocker

    This book is awesome if you love horses and mustering.
    The Drover’s Quest is about a girl named Charlotte who disguises herself as a boy so that she can join the Drovers that are taking over 1000 head of cattle to the West Coast. She wants to go to the West Coast where a man has gone missing, that man is her father. Charlotte, her dog Skye, her horse Cobber, her fathers friend Tama and her friend Joseph from the drove work together to get to the camp where her dad has gone missing.
    If you want to find out what happens next you will need to read the book to hear the end of the adventures.

    Le Café Petit On O’Sullivan St
    By Raymond McGrath

    This book is a picture book and you would love how it rhymes. The characters in the book are fun and out there. The illustrations are colourful and exciting

    I’ve read a fantastic book called the Messenger Bird by Ruth Eastham. It’s about a boy called Nathan who on Bonfire Night his father is taken away for breaking the Offical Acts Law. His father tells him to follow Lily’s trail and the more people that know the more dangerous it is. He tells his friends, Sasha and Josh. The three of them follow Lily’s trail and learn that it history is repeating itself and the end of Lily’s trail can save Nathan’s father from life in prison. I rate it 10+/10 and I think it is suitable for 11 and up.

    I would strongly recommend the Tom Gates books by Liz Pichon they are hilarious and I really get hooked in when I read then. I think my favorite would be Tom Gates Genius Ideas but I think I actually like them all the same. Also you should definitely read Diary Of A Wimpy Kid books by Jeff Kiney. My they are all hilarious too and my favourite would be probably Cabin Fever or Hard Luck. Also once once you have read the books definitely watch the movies.

    Great new book on Amazon Kindle

    Four Wheeled Hero by Malcolm Brown

    Its so funny it keeps you glued to the book from start to finish

    This exciting adventure story for children will have all lovers of traditional fantasy ‘boy hero’ tales on the edge of their seats until the final word.

    The story has two young teenage heroes, Tommy and Smithy. But this is a children’s fantasy adventure story with a difference because one of the heroes, Tommy, is confined to a wheelchair following a terrible accident.

    The story begins when Tommy is sent a magical stone from his Uncle Bill who is on an expedition in the Brazilian Rain Forest. Bill was given the stone by a village chieftain after he saved his son’s life. He was told that the stone had magical powers so he sent it to Tommy for his stone collection.

    But it turned out to be much more ‘valuable’ than for inclusion in the stone collection for, a couple of days later, Tommy’s father, who is the manager of the local bank, is kidnapped by robbers when they realise that the alarm system has been set and they have to wait until Monday when it would allow the vault to be opened.

    When Tommy and Smithy decide to try to track the robbers down the real power of the magic stone is revealed. This power is that when Tommy thinks of something the stone makes it happen so the robbers are in for some real surprises as Tommy’s wheelchair develops some very unusual and effective weapons and powers. So, with the help of Smithy’s cat, Tiger, who more than lives up to his name, the robbers are taught a lesson they certainly don’t expect.

    This is an exuberant and exciting children’s adventure that will appeal to young and old alike.
