Anty Hero
Author: Barry Hutchison Illustrator: Tom Percival
It was quite a short book, so didn't take long to read. There wasn't many illustrations, but they helped bring the characters to life. I did enjoy the story, but it was over so quickly, would have preferred more length. I like Zac and his friend's, and what happened to the not so nice teacher, Mr Dawkin, was very funny.

The Battle of the Blighty Bling
Author: Ruth Quayle Illustrator: Eric Heyman
I've never really been a big pirate fan, but this book was enjoyable. Easy to read independently, didn't take me long to finish, as it was an easy read. I really liked the illustrations, and the book was funny

Guinness World Records
Author: Guinness World Records
I have a few guinness world record books at home. I got this one from school, as my book of choice to take home, which I chose. I think these books are really interesting, and I learn lots of new facts. I like that theres a contents page, so I can skip to areas I'm more interested in first, like science and technology, or earth. I like the pictures of things that go along with the information, so I can see rather than have to imagine. Its a good size book, so I read bits of it each day. There are some really funny world records, and some really amazing ones. I read about things I've never heard of before, so it is an eye opening book. One you can reed over

Star Wars Maker Lab: 20 Galactic Science Projects
Authors: Liz Lee Heinecke , Cole Horton
I love star wars, so couldn't wait to look at this book, to see what things I could make. It has a contents page, so you can skip to things you are interested in making. There is lots of variety, some things easier, that tou can do with household items, some more difficult, that you will have to buy things for. Some things I have made before, like the volcano, and there were some things I wouldn't want to make. But that's the beauty of this book, you make what you want from it. Some things I could do on my own, but some I would need help with. I have done the kyber crystals, as we had everything you needed all ready in the house. That was fun, and one I will probably do again. I also did the jabba slime, and my little sister joined in. My little sister has also done some things from the book with my mom. There is plenty to try out. I definitely want to do the light saber duel. The instructions are easy to follow, and the diagrams are very helpful. This is a book that will be used over and over again

You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum!
Author: Andy Stanton Illustrator: David Tazzyman
I liked the illustrations, as they reminded me of the ones from Roald Dahl books. It's not the best book I have read, the story didn't have me gripped like when I normally read books, and the plot wasn't very interesting
