Reading Corner Book Review




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!

The Night of the Living Dummy

By R L Stine

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

Genre: Horror

Age: 7+

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.

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid In The Deep End

By Jeff Kinney

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.

Rating 4.5/5

Genre: Humour

Age: 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!
