  1. 1. I’d Tell You I Love You But The I’d Have To Kill You by Ally Carter. This book is about an academy called Gallagher Academy. Instead of being a school for geniuses, it is for spies. Cammie is the headmistress’ daughter and when she is out on a mission, she falls for a ordinary boy. She can’t let him find out that she is really a spy. • By Abbi Yule
  2. 2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Diary of a wimpy kid is my favourite book because it is very interesting and makes you want to read more about the story. Also, my favourite part to the story is when he has to perform on the stage and be a tree, as well as when Rowley and his mum start dancing at the end .The book is funny and makes you want to read more and it also makes you want to read all of the other books. The book has some pictures to make it look like a real diary and to make it more interesting to the reader. I would recommend this book to children around the ages of 8- 13 it is a brilliant book for children to read, however, also adults could find this book funny and interesting. I would recommend this book to a lot of people mostly children and also the films which Ive also watched but the books are great to read and enjoy. They’re one of those books that you couldn’t get bored of. It is my favourite book and I really enjoy reading it. By Rebecca Case
  3. 3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid – Dog Days My book is called Diary of a wimpy kid Dog Days. I am enjoying this book because it is not boring like most books and it has some amusing pictures.

  4. 4. Jack Stalwart: Secret Agent I found this book to be very interesting, this is because it is about a young boy who is of a similar age to me and he is a part time spy for the GPF (Global Protection Force). He gets sent to investigate the theft of very valuable paintings at the museum in France. He gets to travel around the world using gadgets like a portable pen map in order to help him solve crimes. He does all of this while in school and keeping it a secret from his mum, dad and two brothers. I also like this book because he gets in to tight situations and always finds a way out which makes it exiting and makes me want to read more. By Louis Nodwell

The book I am writing about is THE WORRY WEBSITE this book is all about children in a school with worries and the teacher Mr. Speed sets up a website instead of having to share it with the class they can just log on and tell him their worries.

  17. 17. StormbreakerStormbreaker was a good children’s bookbecause the characters were individual andit had a lot of action e.g chasing, shootingand fighting. In some parts it was a littleunrealistic but... its only a book. There wereseveral main characters so it would be alittle hard to understand if you missed thebeginning. but who would miss thebeginning of such a great book? But being a12 year old boy I think the best part was thegiant jellyfish. Deadly but cool. The majorityof the people were evil. And only a few goodpeople.By Tom Whalley

Even by the end ofthe book I was still interested for more of
