Book pages Diary of Greg Heffley's Best Friend: World Book Day 2019
Diary of Greg Heffley's Best Friend: World Book Day 2019
Noah read it aged 8
I really enjoyed this book because it was extremely funny. I have already read a 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' book so I knew about the two main characters. Normally Greg writes the books because he is the Wimpy Kid but in this book his best friend Rowley writes everything. Greg and Rowley have some really great adventures but Greg is sometimes mean to Rowley and plays lots of tricks on him. My favourite character in the book was Bampy who is Rowley's grandad because all he says is 'Bampy' really loudly. Part of the book had Greg and Rowley's comic series Zoo-Wee Mama! This was the best bit because it was hilarious. The pictures in the book are all in black and white and pretty funny. I also really liked all the titles to the different chapters. I highly recommend this book to any 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' fan.

Oxford Reading Tree: Level 7: More Stories B: The Riddle Stone Part One
Flynn read it aged 5
We really enjoy reading books from the Oxford Reading Tree series. They are great at helping young children to steadily develop their reading skills. The different levels help children increase their vocabulary and confidence. By Stage 7 the stories are longer and more in depth with trickier words. In this story Dad finds an old stone with writing on under the floorboards. Biff and Chip keep the stone and with the help of their friend Hong and his grandad they translate the Chinese writing on it. Biff, Chip and Hong then go on an adventure using the magic key. Their journey is full of riddles and they have to solve them to continue further in their adventure. This is a very interesting book with some great riddles and colourful pictures. We can't wait to find out what happens in part 2 of the adventure.

Book pages 64 Zoo Lane: Snowbert The Polar Bear
64 Zoo Lane: Snowbert The Polar Bear
I read it to Flynn aged 5
This is a lovely book about a very sweet Polar Bear. Snowbert (of 64 Zoo Lane fame) is a lonely Polar Bear. He has no friends to play with so has to play dominoes on his own and has no one to show his wonderful ice sculptures to. Then one day a seal appears from a hole in the ice where Snowbert lives. The seal is called Sidney and Snowbert and Sidney become good friends. They play dominoes together and have great fun. One day Snowbert can't find the seal and he starts to worry that he may have lost his friend but then something exciting happens. We really enjoyed this book and the lovely characters in it. We definitely recommend it.

Book pages LEGO Minifigure Mayhem (World Book Day 2019)
LEGO Minifigure Mayhem (World Book Day 2019)
Noah read it aged 8
This book is awesome! It is a really fun book which explains the stories behind loads of different minifigures. There are lots of amazing pictures and Mini Facts as well as some really funny jokes. There are even some challenges to do too. My favourite challenge was building a tower of minifigures because it was great fun. At the end of the book there is a quiz which tests your knowledge of the minifigures you have read about. It also shows you how to make a display stand for your favourite minifigures. It is great to see more details about all of the minifigures and I highly recommend this book to any Lego fan.
