Mummy Fairy and Me
Author: Sophie Kinsella Illustrator: Marta Kissi
Don’t know who was more excited me or my daughter I am a huge Sophie kinsella fan and was over the moon to be able to share my love of books with my daughter.

She loved the feel of the book, the illustrations and the fact it was all about fairies.
Ella apparently is very lucky to have a mummy, aunty jo and a granny who are all fairies and she wishes that we were all fairies. The chapters were perfect for a bedtime story and we found the book funny and loved the sports day chapter the best she would love to be able to put a spell on her class mates.
Hope there is more in this  series with Ella as a great book for younger readers.

Fantastically Great Women Who Worked Wonders
Author: Kate Pankhurst Illustrator: Kate Pankhurst
Wow what an book we were very excited to receive this book. 
We have read the book person at a time. Myself as an adult has learned so much I didn’t know and has very much enjoyed reading with my daughter.
The book layout is fun, bright with fantastic illustrations.
She loves the way the writing is in boxes and speak bubbles. She has taken on board each person and read most by herself with help. She has asked questions and highlighted information and bits she has liked or doesn’t quite understand. Today we have looked at dr James Barry and has conversations about why women couldn’t go to university, army or become a doctor. 
From looking ahead in the book she is asking for the matchsticks girls. 
A fantastic fabulous book that is thought provoking to us all and a great way to start conversations and opportunities for our very strong confident girls.

Pirate Pug
Author: Laura James Illustrator: Eglantine Ceulemans
Great book to encourage young readers my daughter is really wanting and looking for what she calls grown up books she can read by herself. This book is perfect fantastic illustrations, bold writing, not too many words on every page and chapters that are big enough for a bed time read. 
She lives reading about lady Miranda and pug and all their exciting adventures the two of them have. 
Treasure goes missing and lots of jam tarts she is becoming a fan of this series

Captain Pug
Author: Laura James Illustrator: Eglantine Ceulemans
We were attracted to the book for the pug she is doing so well with her reading and asking for more grown up books. The book is set out well she especially liked the map at the front and the illustrations through out especially of the pug. She said they were funny and made her laugh. 
Chapters were a great size one a night and written so she could read most but the tricky words herself.
She loved the adventures that the pug had especially the jam tarts and the crew of the fearless and was pleased to know pug wasn’t going to be a pirate again.
She is now looking for more books of the series

Where's Wally? The Spectacular Spotlight Search
Author: Martin Handford
Ruby wants to give this book 10/10 
Her first where is wally book.
She was overwhelmed and so happy when it arrived.
The magic slider was fantastic and she sat happily searching for wally. She loves how it likes up the book.
I love the illustrations and the introduction and writer bits were fun for her to read and work out the words. It’s was so ultra cool she had taken it to show and tell and couldn’t wait to show her class and explain how the torch works. Brilliant
