Kiss Kiss Yuck Yuck - Book Review by Lucy R17

This story is about a boy that hates seeing his Aunty. She is called Aunty Elsie. All the time Andy tries to run away but Aunty Elsie is too quick and Andy is too slow and Aunty Elsie just puts her arms around Andy and kiss on the left cheek and kiss on the right cheek.

“Yuck yuck,” said Andy and they all came the same. Andy just squeezes his eyes and tries to get out but he can’t.

The story “Tom and Jerry” is based on a mouse and a cat and a very funny story. Jerry (the mouse) is running away from Tom (the cat) and pulling pranks on Tom. Tom tries to chase Jerry. I like it because it is so funny and so childish.

Then Harry went on a train to Hogwarts there he met many adventures including a gigantic troll looking for a key hidden by thousands of insects and fighting the philosopher.

Anthony's book review Night Rise

Night Rise is Anthony Horowitz's latest power of five book. Two telepathic twins Scott and Jamie are only performers at a circus up until they start having weird but vivid dreams and most of all finding out they're "one of the five" and embark on a super dangerous quest to stop the evil old ones and meet up with the rest of the five. Anthony keeps this book exciting with humor horror and violence. I recommend this book to the age of 10+. I rate this book 9/10.

Groosham Grange by Anthony Howowitz

Groosham Grange is a really good book. It's about a boy called David. David gets expelled from his old school and then he gets sent to Groosham Grange.

At Groosham Grange you only get one day off a year, the French teacher disappears every full moon and new pupils have to sign their names in blood! This book is for kids 10 years old. I rate Groosham Grange 9.5/10

Claudine At St Clares Book Reveiw by Emma

Claudine At St Clares is a book written by Enid Blyton who is one of my favourite authors. It is a book mainly about Claudine and the twins, Pat and Isabel who are in the fourth form. Claudine goes to St Clares, which is a boarding school, from France which makes her very good at sewing.

Her aunt, Mam'zelle, is the french teacher at St Clares, thinks that Claudine will be very lonely and shy at St Clares but Claudine is quite the opposite. She is very daring, she once locked the Matron in the games closet, with the lacrosse sticks and all that. She hates and detests water but she let herself fall in to soak and punish a mother who offended Mam'zelle and looked down at St Clares.

Claudine doesn't care what she does really so she often gets in trouble. She loves doing sewing and getting out of games and usually the punishments are something to do with laundry and not getting to swim or play tennis.

When Claudine locks the Matron in the cupboard she gets out of games for a week! Pat and Isabel also have to help the other 3 new girls settle down.

Claudine At St Clares is quite an exciting book and I give it 10/10

The Many Adventures Of Tom Sawyer By Julius

The many adventures of Tom Sawyer is a popular book first published in 1879. I enjoy this book because it was made about 100 years ago and the character says things like "this bible must have at least cost 6 cents!" It gets interesting when the author introduced a character which was a slave boy. It is a bit hard to understand because of the language they used. Other than that it is a great story.

Verdict: 4.99999999/5

This book review is by Julius.
