The Awesome Book of Space

By Adam Frost

This boko is about space and tells you a lot of facts and unknown titbits about space. This is perfect for the younger generation because it isn’t only facts, it has some pictures to visualise the size or weight an object.  How do you eat in Space? How do you communicate in space? You will find both of these and more in this book.  You will find out world records about space, how to survive in space and interesting things about what people did in space.

The BFG

By Roald Dahl

This book is wonderful because it has lots of drama. It has lots of exciting new words that you can put into your own stories and a quiz to ask people who are interested. I recommend this book tremendously.

The 52-Storey Treehouse

By Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton

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!
