darren shan

The Saga of Darren Shan: Cirque du Freak

By Darren Shan

 Darren Shan is a boy who becomes a vampire assistant and goes though a horrifying adventure and goes through a stressful time with his master Mr Crepsley.

I love this book! I carry it everywhere to keep it safe to me it is the funniest book even better than Skulduggery Pleasant it is funny, scary, dramatic and riveting.

I would recommend this book to 8-35 years because it’s so interesting that even older people will enjoy it like a teacher I know who is very old and likes this book and she was 30 when she read it.

george's marvellous medicine

George’s Marvellous Medicine

Roald Dahl

This book is about a boy named George who really didn’t like his Grandmother so he made a disgusting medicine for her.

I think this book would be suitable for children aged 8 – 13, in my opinion.

I would recommend this book because it is funny and exciting.

mr gum and goblins

Mr Gum and the Goblins. (Book 3)

Andy Stanton

The book is about a lady and a girl that go upon a mountain which is owned by Mr Gum and they have to get past the blocks through the goblin caves.

I think this book would be suitable  for 7 to 12 year olds because of how long it is.

I would recommend this story because of the excitement in it.

david beckham le football

David Beckham academy:  Le football

David Beckham

This book is about Luke the star defender and hat trick maker. He has a new French rival Louis. Will Luke struggle or buck up his game?

This book is suitable for any ages as long as they like football.

I strongly recommend the book and I wish it had more pages but it’s o.k for me because I am a football fan.
