Roald Dahl

 A boy, who lost his parents in England, began to live with his grandmother in Norway. Grandmother told her grandson how the REAL WITCHES caused the childrens' mysterious end. Also, she told him how to recognize the witches. The boy really meets the witches of England and the Grand High Witch. Unfortunately, he is captured by the witches with another boy Bruno, who became a mouse (only in appearance, not in his brain) and became a clever mouse due to 'Formula 86 Delayed Action Mouse Maker', which was invented by The Grand High Witch. Then the boy (whilst he's a mouse) steals the 'Formula 86 Delayed Action Mouse Maker' from the flat of The Grand High Witch and makes all of the witches of England into mice! When grandmother finds the witches' castle, they go into the most exciting mission in the world.

 I think that The Witches is the most exciting book from all the books that Roald Dahl has written. I liked it that the witches of England were made into mice, which started the quest. People who like the action books or films would like to read this.

Mr Gum and the Biscuit Billionaire PDF Print E-mail

 Set in the main lands of London, this is a humorous book about a homeless man called Mr Gum who meets a biscuit billionaire. So he and his friend, Billy the Butcher, try to steal his money. Mr Gum thinks as a result this will equal fame and fashion for him and Billy the Butcher. But Billy's niece (Sophie) says there is no point and tries to stop them because the biscuit billionaire is Sophie's best friend.

 This is a brilliant book and it made me laugh (especially the chapter where Mr Gum had a cup of tea and a carrot). I think anyone age over 7 will enjoy the humour and the fantastic rhymes in each chapter. It is written in lovely style and it really is aimed at young children like myself! IT IS REALLY FUNNY AND I'M SURE YOU WILL ENJOY READING IT!

Roald Dahl

 This story is about two idiots living together in revolting life styles. They play horrible tricks on each other like putting corn flakes in facial hair, eating worm spaghetti and hiding frogs in their beds! I would not like to live like them.

 It's really funny! There are monkeys, a bird of pardise and a parrot. I also think that it's funny there's a time line of how they once were - handsome and beautiful then they got really ugly. 8-11 year olds should read this book I would recommend it.
