Kaspar: Prince of Cats
Author: Michael Morpurgo
I read this book after watching the Titanic on TV. I loved every page of it. Some of it is sad and moving but other parts of the book are funny. It is well written into different chapters that happen in various parts of the world. I love the characters in the story in particular Johnny and Kaspar and Lizzibeth. I would reocmmend this book to all children aged 8 plus.

My Very First Art Sticker Book
Author: Rosie Dickens
I do two pages a night at the moment every evening at bedtime with my mum. It is a bit on the easy side but my mum says it is a great introduction to famous artists and style. It is sticker based and I really enjoyed decorated boats with stickers of different colours. I did one and my mum did one and we compared them. The explanations of the techniques are easy to follow.

Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Fiction: Level 15 More Pack A: My Guinea-Pig Is Innocent
Author: Margaret McAllister Illustrator: Tim Archbold
I borrowed this at school as my reading book because I like guinea pigs but I found the plot a bit hard to follow and needed my mum reading it with me to explain the plot. I would not recommend it.
