Book pages Beyond the Odyssey
Beyond the Odyssey
Bobbin read it aged 10
The third book in a series of four, continues Elliot Hoopers quest alongside Greek gods. This time he is looking for the third chaos stone. Alongside a life on Earth mixed up with Greek gods, Elliot has to cope with his mums ill health and the return of his convict father. Needless to say there is A Lot going on, and the story balances humour with poignancy as the tale takes you on an epic adventure.  My son really enjoyed it and can't wait for the final book. He did want to give the book four stars, but that was because of the cliff hanger at the end, so I think really this book does deserve five stars!

Book pages Really Remarkable Reptiles
Really Remarkable Reptiles
I read it to Bobbin aged 10 & to Piglet aged 6
This is a book that appeals to all ages (grown ups included!).  As an object, the book is made of high quality materials and full of beautiful, simple and engaging illustrations of reptiles of all and every kind.  Full of facts that are presented in easy and accessible language, this is a great book that both entertains and informs.  From explaining what reptiles are, to providing information on a range of them, the book leads on to the habitats that they can be found in and how the human impact on these habitats is endangering reptiles.  This book is sure to inspire a love of reptiles and a concern about protecting their environments to ensure their survival.  I love books such as this that are designed to educate, inspire and engage young children to care and act about protecting their environment.  

We loved reading this book together as a family, and will certainly dip in and out of it in the future.  It will also make a great reference book for school projects.   We would also recommend 'The Egg' by Britta Teckentrup, which is similar in range but covers everything you need to know about eggs in a similar manner to how this book covers everything you need to know about reptiles!  

We would definitely recommend this book, and it would make a great present for any child who loves reptiles.
