The 26-Storey Tree House by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton was chosen as the best book of 2012 by Christchurch kids. I’m sure you’ve all read HEAPS of books this year that you thought were absolutely fantastic (I know I have).
What are some of your favourite books that you’ve read this year? They might be new books or old books, fantasy or adventure, set in the past, the present or the future.
One of my favourite books that I’ve read this year is an older book that you may have read too. It was Once by Morris Gleitzman. My best friend told me that I HAD to read it, and once I started I couldn’t stop. It’s a heart-breaking story, set during World War Two, and it’s told from the point of view of a Jewish boy called Felix. It’s one of those stories that I can’t get out of my head and the characters follow me everywhere.
We would love to hear about your favourite books that you’ve read this year.
