Reading Voyage Book Reviews 2005
Zipmouth by ’. ‘I
liked it because it made me happy and sad. The happy bit was
when Lizzie got to play with Alice the Doll and she got to
dress the other dolls I would like to be Lizzie because I like
to play with dolls. The sad bit was when Great Gran was sick
in Hospital, but it was happy again when she got better.’
7 has written a review about ‘
Mermaid by . She writes: I
did enjoy this book a lot although I maybe should pick a longer
one next time. I liked its elegant illustrations. I picked
a good one because I do like mermaids. I liked it when Mairi
swims with the mermaid to the rock. I also liked the ending
where her mum and dad congratulate her on learning to swim.
Jessica also liked the strange sounding
book Iddy Bogey the Ogre Yogi by , (Illustrator).
Jessica says that this book was very strange. ‘I loved
the bit where the genie has to lose weight to fit inside
the Lamp. I’ve read ‘Gorilla
Granny’ before at school so I am familiar with this book title. I also
liked the bit where the person wished to stand naked in the middle of the dessert
and he had no riches or money to get some clothes from the stalls or the markets’
Thanks for those reviews Jessica.
and the Chocolate Factory by as her ‘most treasured book’ Here
is her book review: ‘I liked it
because it was an interesting and exciting book’. Kelsey
even wrote down her favourite chapters in the book. She seemed
a bit sad that only Charlie left the Chocolate Factory. Thanks
for doing the review Kelsey.
legend of spud Murphy by was a bit young
for me, but I enjoyed it all the same. It was about two
boys who had been sent to do something ‘educational’ in
the summer holidays; they get sent to the dreadful library
where spud Murphy, the evil librarian lives. The story
tells how the boys got through the terrifying weeks there,
and what they get up to….. 10/10 By Joe
start of the holidays I got ‘The
Amulet of Samarkand’ I
started to read it and found it intensely dull, but I thought
it would get better, as quite a few books are boring at
the beginning. This one, however, was boring till half
way through. It did not get better after that. I just gave
up. It may get better later in the book, but I doubt it.

it was thrilling and while I was reading it, it was like a

Predator and Killer Instinct’.

The Newcomer by . aged 9 has enjoyed this Pony Club book; it is
the first in a series.
Louise writes: It is about a girl who wants to ride and likes
this certain pony but it belongs to another person. I also
liked it because there are three main characters and there
are three main horses, there are not too many characters, which
I like. I also liked it because under each chapter it tells
you what the chapter is about, e.g. 2 A Room with a View. I
like horses, so of course I liked this book, and at the end
of the book, Polly who is the main character gets into a show,
which is cool.
