The Dodo Made Me Do It
Author: Jo Simmons Illustrator: Sheena Dempsey
 The Dodo Made Me Do It is a hilarious, action packed book all about determination, courage and loyalty. 

 When Danny goes to his grandmas for the summer holidays, he is annoyed. Every year, his parents are too busy to look after him during the summer holidays, so he has to make do with the boring town of Kinoussie and his even more boring Grandma Flora. 

 All that changes when he wades out to a small island just off the coast and discovers something that truly changes his boring summer into an adventure just like the ones he reads about in his comics.

But, as the summer draws to a close he realises that his adventure is over – and that he has to say goodbye to a creature he has become very close to. However, in the words of Dorothy, “There’s no place like home “.

The Key to Flambards
I read it aged 11
When I read the blurb that this book, I wasn’t quite sure what the story was going to be about. However, once I had started, I just couldn’t get enough of it. Get a talented venture when I read the blurb at this book, I wasn’t quite sure what the story was going to be about. However, once I started, I just couldn’t get enough of it. It’s a tale of adventure, perseverance, friendship and a tiny bit of mystery.
 The character I most admire is Grace. She is always so determined, despite anything that is thrown in her way. So she is just a character from a book, I really sympathise her: at the start of the novel she had family issues, friendship issues and of course her prosthetic leg. But, she didn’t let any of those things stop her during her time at Flambards – but will she get to stay at the place that she has come to love?
