This book is about Andy and his friend Terry who save Mr Big Nose, but then they get stuck themselves and so a girl has to save them. My favourite part of the story is when Terry sees the donkey and has to walk for ages.
Spoiler alert: the girl is the vegetable killer. Shhh!

Summary of Frostheart: Far out in the coldest part of the Snow Sea, Ash waits for his missing parents with only his yeti guardian Tobu. But when an accident happens, Ash finds he has super powers (song weaving). He’s whisked aboard the Frostheart – an explorer sleigh with a daring crew. Can they help Ash to master his new powers and find his parents?
This is a well-written book that will surely send a shiver down your spine. When I read this book, I really enjoyed it, as well as having some daunting thoughts about the doll, Slappy. The Night of the Living Dummy is based on two twin teenage girls Kris and Lindsey Powell. Lindsey finds an evil doll “Slappy” who haunts Kris constantly. I am warning you now because YOU’RE IN FOR A FRIGHT KIDS! Enjoy reading this awesome book.
Rating: ***** 5/5 Amazing
Recommendation: I strongly recommend this book for children who have a liking for horror books. (No worries, this book is fine for children over 7 – it is not the scariest book to read.
I like this book because all of the family have different opinions (e.g Dad wants to visit Civil War battlefields and take part in a re-enactment. Manny wanted to go to the Animal Safari. Mum said they should go in their own community. and Rodrick and Greg thought they should go to thrills and spills waterpark). It has a lot of funny pictures and they have brilliant adventures! I rate this book 4.5 out of 5.
Recommendation: I would recommend this book to people who like adventures and have a good sense of humour (this book is suitable for children 5+). You should buy this book!
We have loved reading the Dragonsitter by Josh Lacey. Check out some of our reviews.
We have just finished reading The Witches by Roald Dhal and we would really recommend that you give it a read. It is an adventure story about a boy who’s parents have died and lives with his grandmother. The boy’s grandmother was ill and they needed stay in a hotel for a while. The other guests in the hotel are not all they seem to be. A brilliant story about magic, adventure and more. We would give it a rating of 10 out of 10. Beware! Some of the story can get a little scary!
