Ted and Kat's cousin, Salim, goes missing on the London Eye. Ted and Kat follow clues around London to try and find him.


I thought it was a brilliant, tense book. It had me on the edge of my seat and because of that, I finished it really quickly.

Anyone would love it.

 The Dare Game is by one of the BEST authoresses in the galaxy.It is about a girl called Tracy who lives in a children's home "a place where children get DUMPED" Tracy says in the book, aka the dumping ground. She has a real mum, she is ordinary and sweet as sugar just like all mums can be but sometimes Tracy can exaggerate so she says her mum is a famous movie star in Hollywood who is more than ordinary and definitely more than sweet, more like extremely sweet. After a few chapters you will get the fright of your life because..... you'll just have to read the book and find out.

 The book was amazing and full of humour.If you read it and say it is lame I will really be amazed and say "Maybe you should read a new genre." The best bits were: ehhhh it's hard for me to choose, it was all extremely great but the age I think people should read this book is all ages you see ALL AGES, only joking it might be too childish for over 50's it should really be for 7 to 17 so READ IT.

 Jayni is a girl who has to face an awful lot from her cruel farther. Early on in the story, Jayni's mum (Nikki) enters the lottery and wins a lot of money. Kenny (Jayni's younger brother), Nikki and Jayni run away and hide from Jayni and Kenny's father as they are scared that he will harm them and their future. When they run away they decide on new names for themselves, Jayni's is Lola Rose.

 When I read this book, it whisked me off my feet as I felt the things Jayni (Lola Rose) and her family experienced. This book would be for older year fives and year sixes as some of the themes are quite grown up. I would love other children to enjoy this excellent book as much as I did!

Roald Dahl

 Sophie lives in an orphanage but her life changes when she meets the Big Friendly Giant (BFG). The two of them have all sorts of adventures including capturing the bad giants and meeting the queen.

 I like this book because the BFG has his own funny language and eats strange foods like snoscumbers. I also like the illustrations by Quentin Blake. Younger children would enjoy listening to this book being read and older children ( year 3 + ) could read it by themselves.
