Timothee de Fombelle

 Toby, a 13 year old boy, is troubled by problems to save his parent's from the consequences of their deaths. On his journey to save them, he meets different people and species of other kinds, as well as having Joe Mitch on his tail. Joe Mitch was the ruler of the tree, even though all he wanted was money and all the secrets of the tree. He really is greedy and evil.

 I thought this book was an amazing adventure because of all the different problems. When you read it, it feels like you are actually in the book meeting all Toby's friends and enemies. All in all I would give this book ten out of ten because of all the action that goes on.

 A true life story about Allen Parton getting a serious head injury in the gulf war, so his wife Sandra Parton has to get Endal to help him.

 I love this story except there is a very sad bit when he loses his memory. This book is for 11-15 year olds!!!!

Enid Blyton

 It is a fabulous book about 7 teenagers in a club which have some mysterious adventures.

 It is a very mysterious book and it is very enjoyable. You could read for hours and hours. I think it is about 10 out of 10. I recommend this book for 6-11 year olds.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets PDF Print E-mail

J.K Rowling

 This is the second Harry Potter book published and features the house elf Dobby and how Harry nearly does not get to school and loses his bones. It is also about the basalisk in the chamber and the entrance through the pipes in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom (the girls' toilets) and the heir of Slytherin...

 My favourite part of the book was when the three friends made the poly juice potion, so try this book and feel yourself sink in to the first sentence that grabs you. I would say that this book is aimed at children aged 8+ and also people that have already read the first Harry Potter book. (Harry Potter and the philosopher's Stone)

Fantastic Mr.Fox PDF Print E-mail

Roald Dahl

 Down in the valley there lived three farmers: Boggis, Bunce and Bean. They had done well. They were rich men and also nasty men. Boggis was a fat chicken farmer, Bunce was a small duck and goose farmer and Bean was a thin turkey and apple farmer and cleverest of them all. Mr Fox lived in a hole under a big old tree. He always stole food from Boggis or Bunce or Bean. He chose carefully and went to his target directly. Boggis, Bunce and Bean wanted to kill the fox. Firstly, they hid beside the big old tree and tried to shoot Mr. Fox when he came out for food, but they missed the body but hit his tail. Secondly, they tried to dig him out with shovels. But unfortunately, Mr. Fox's family dug as well. So Bunce and Bean tried to dig him out with tractors and their machiemical shovels, but it failed as well, due to the length of the tunnel that Mr. Fox's family had dug. Finally, they decided to starve the foxes out from the entrence of the fox's hole. They had their men surround the hill where Mr. Fox's family's hole was. But this failed as well; Mr. Fox dug tunnels to Boggis's chicken house number one, Bunce's marvelous store house and Bean's cider cellar and the farmers didn't know. Even when Mr. Fox took a large amount of food for a party for digger-moles, badgers, rabbits, foxes and weasles, they hadn't noticed! Boggis, Bunce and Bean were still waiting from outside the fox's hole thinking that he would have to come out soon, while under them, the foxes were having a great feast.

 Fantastic Mr. Fox shows us that if a parents' daughter or son is ill, they will do anything to keep them alive, even if they have to go against the law. It also clearly shows us that foxes can be cleverer than crazy people. Boggis, Bunce and Bean's craziness will give us laughs, so people who like to laugh when mad people act crazily will love this book.
