The Peculiar Peggs of Riddling Woods
Author: Samuel J. Halpin Illustrator: Hannah Peck
I really loved this book! It's about a girl called Poppy who goes to visit her grandmother and falls into a world of mystery and friendship. Will she she be able to save all the children in her grandmother's town before it's too late?

This book is quite scary in places, but also an exciting read. My favourite character was Erasmus because he was clever and had a good memory.

Fans of Harry Potter would love this book!

Get Coding 2! Build Five Computer Games Using HTML and JavaScript
Author: David Whitney Illustrator: Duncan Beedie
I just started learning coding at school this term so  I was very excited to win this book. I found this book really easy to use. The instructions  were clear, although at first I asked my mum to go through it with me until I felt confident that I knew what I was doing! I was so excited when I made my first game: naughts and crosses. I told my friends how great this book is and now they want to buy it!

This was a really amazing book about a girl who is a witch hunter. Her name is Evangeline. One day she and her grandmother are called to New Orleans to make a sick person well again. But what has really happened to her...

I loved this book. It was so interesting to read, even though it was a little bit scary! 
I have recommended it to all my friends!

Rory Branagan (Detective)

Rory is a normal boy, except his dad disappeared when he was three. Ever since he left, Rory has been longing to know where he is but that will have to wait. His friends dad has been poisoned by a takeaway and Rory must find out what has happened. With help from Rory's best friend Cassidy, nothing will stop them.

My favourite character in this book was Cassidy because she is a very good detective and always knows a person's next move. 

I loved illustrations in this book. This book was funny and a little scary. I would recommend it for children aged 7 and over.

Eddy Stone and the Mean Genie's Curse
Author: Simon Cherry Illustrator: Francis Blake
At the start, I wasn't so keen to read this book, but the more I read the more I enjoyed it! It involves a wizard without a body trapped inside a lamp and a genie who grants all his master's wishes. 

My favourite character is Hen because she is really interested in science and can always come up with a logical solution for most problems. 

I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I did!
