  1. I'm currently reading 'The Clockwork Sparrow' by Katherine Woodfine, and I'm loving every moment of it. It's a fun mystery about the opening of a luxury department store, and the shocking theft of the store's priceless jewellery. If you like books about friends working together to solve crimes, and dastardly goings-on in old London, you'll have a great time with this book. And the great news for fans of this is that there are three more books in the series!

  2. I've just started The Last Wild by Piers Torday. Has anyone else read it? It's brilliant so far, I'm loving it! I'll let you know what I think when I finish it. Let me know if you want to borrow it.

  3. By the way, it was Mr Thorne who recommended The Last Wild to me. He is a fount of knowledge when it comes to children's books, so ask him for his favourite latest reads and he will recommend loads.

  4. I've just finished reading The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson; a book aimed at year 6 and above. The action revolves around a central character, Matthew who likes everything to be in order, preferring the safety of his home to the unpredictable outside world. As the story unfolds a gripping mystery is revealed and Matthew turns detective. It's a real page turner which kept all of us gripped until the last page. There are some copies in the year 6 book area - Let me know what you thought.

    2. BEST BOOK EVER!
      I would recommend it for Year 4's who like a complicated read and a non-scary mystery

  5. The Thief of Always by Clive Barker is a gripping mystery/adventure. Suitable for Year 6, the story is built around a young boy, Harvey Swick. Harvey complains of being bored one rainy afternoon when a strange and enigmatic character, Rictus, appears at the window and invites Harvey to spend some time in what he refers to as the Holiday House. It sounds like the perfect cure for Harvey's boredom, but not everything is as it seems!

  6. While having lunch today the Posh Noshers were chatting about book and Mateo recommended the Diamond Bothers series by Anthony Horowitz. It just reminded me of what a great series of books that was - my favourite was The Falcon's Malteser. The Diamond brothers are detectives (!!!) and solve their cases more by good luck than sound detective skills...
    We have some of the series in the book swap - give one a try.

  7. How to Write Really Badly is one of my favourite books by Anne Fine. It is a very funny story about a boy called Chester who doesn’t like his new school because the children there are disturbingly well-behaved. His new friend Joe has hidden talents but writing neatly is definitely not one of them!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am currently reading 'Millions - the not-so-great train robbery' by Frank Cottrell Boyce. It's a book suitable for Year 5 and 6. The story is about two brothers who find a stolen bag of money from a train robbery that didn't quite go to plan. They have to try and spend it without their father noticing and before the euro replaces the pound sterling, meaning they only have 17 days! The youngest brother believes the money is sent from God and should therefore be spent to help people whereas the older brother has other ideas. Meanwhile, the robbers are on the hunt to get the money back. I'm excited to find out if they will! Would you be able to spend millions in just 17 days?

  9. ‘A Place Called Perfect’ by Helena Duggan caught my eye in Waterstones, where it was children’s book of the month back in September; it doesn’t disappoint. Full of mysterious goings-on and thrilling adventure, the story follows the protagonists, Violet and Boy, as they discover that the town of Perfect is a little too perfect to be true. Since the adults appear quite blind to the sinister forces at work, it is left to bespectacled Violet and her new found friend to unravel the town’s secrets and see things as they really are. Pacey, peculiar and almost perfect, I’d recommend this to Year 4 upwards, particularly fans of villainous intrigue and anyone who fancies being an optician when they grow up. Let me know what you think of the ending. Oh, and does anybody know any other books by this author?

    1. I believe this was her debut novel, Miss Coulton. However, I think she has a similar writing style to seasoned author Emma Carroll, so you may enjoy some of her books if you've not read any before. Letters from the Lighthouse sounds somewhat similar to A Place Called Perfect; it's full of mystery and intrigue that builds and builds until you can't turn the pages fast enough!

      Delete
    2. By complete coincidence I bought Letters from the Lighthouse on Saturday afternoon, one day before you left this message, weirdly! The book is set during World War II, which is a Year 6 topic next term, so I was curious to know if it is as good as the reviews suggest. When I settled down to read it 'The Dam Busters' was on t.v - the perfect backdrop! The opening was a little clunky, I thought, but for readers new to a wartime setting, Emma Carroll's straightforward presentation of the history is likely to be a welcome route in. Anyway, I'm now about three quarters of the way through and just as you predicted, I can't turn the pages fast enough. Were it not for having to come to work today, I would certainly have finished it by now. I will definitely be recommending it to my English group next term. Miss Coulton

    3. I love Emma Carroll, especially strange star, Frost Hollow hall and Lettters from the lighthouse!

  10. In our library recently, I came across a series of non-fiction books that really grabbed me. The series is called ‘The World in Infographics’. Basically information, on a variety of topics including sport, animals and countries, is presented using icons, pictograms and graphics. As you know I always like to get maths into different topics! I certainly gained lots of new knowledge by reading the series. For example, did you know that the Amazon is the world’s second longest river, but by far the largest by volume? It contains 20% of all the world’s river water! I also learnt that about 250 million people around the world play football. There are an estimated 3.5 billion football fans, making it the planet’s most popular sport. If only they all supported Brentford! The various graphs and icons really helped me to understand the information too. I’d love to know if you find them enjoyable so please let me know if you read any; perhaps we could have a go at presenting some information in a similar way.

  11. In Mrs Bonner’s reading group we have been reading the book “Street Child” by Berlie Doherty. At the beginning Jim Jarvis has to unwillingly say goodbye to his sisters, Lizzie and Emily Jarvis. Of course, you only follow Jim’s story, leaving Emily and Lizzie’s story untold. Yet Berlie Doherty must have received so many letters from children asking what happened to them that she was forced to write another story! As you may have guessed, the story that I’m going to review is Emily and Lizzie’s story. Like Street Child (Jim’s story) Berlie Doherty has written another thriller, heartbreaker and mystery- all in one wonderful book!

    Emily and Lizzie now find themselves stuck with Rosie, until she loses her job and the two are separated. Luckily Emily finds Lizzie in time, and they are both whisked off to work in a mill with other abandoned children. The rest of the story; well, you’ll just have to read the book, won’t you?




    The characters are Lizzie, Emily (of course), Rosie (a friend of their mother’s) and the evil, nasty mill master, Mr Blackthorn, who comes into the story later on. Ok, I’ve rattled on enough about how good the book was, let’s talk about the bad points. There was more than enough deaths (one is more than enough for me!) and near deaths (same thing). Weirdly, Street Child is the complete opposite! All in all, there weren’t many bad points!

    I loved the way that the plot twisted and turned, exactly like a snake. It was unpredictable, yet once it happened you want to slap yourself for not guessing earlier. Berlie brought to life each character, bringing out how similar and how different they were. For example, Emily is headstrong and brave, but deep down she is sensitive and very loyal. But Lizzie is tentative and nervous, but when she has fun or is with friends, she gets very excited. One part I didn’t like was when Lizzie seemed to abandon Emily for her own friend, but “something” happened to that friend…

    I would recommend this book to people who are at least 10, as there is a bit of 😡in it! You don’t have to have read the book Street Child already. Anyway, I give this book…..

    1. What a fantastically detailed review, Catherine. You have certainly piqued my interest and I would love to borrow this book. What is the name of it? Don't you just love it when you find a cracking read and then discover that there are more in the series, or, as in this case, there is a spin-off, so you can carry on your journey with characters you've come to know?
      What else are you reading at the moment? Have you read anything by Katherine Rundell? I think you'd really enjoy her books.

  12. Year 3 have just read the beautiful picture book, The Crow's Tale by Naomi Howarth. Based on a traditional Native American legend, the story revolves around a courageous crow and his perilous mission to help his friends. However, unknown to our brightly coloured protagonist at the start of the book, the most important journey that the crow actually takes is an emotional one, as he gradually learns the true value of one's actions and realises what really matters in the world.
    I am sure anyone who reads this books will not only love the story line and the message behind it, but will also thoroughly enjoy the stunning pictures that brilliantly compliment the narrative. The language is also sublime, and although a rhyming book, the author has cleverly not let that detract from the quality of writing, using some incredibly powerful and wholly suitable adjectives and descriptive phrases, as Year 3 discovered last week.

    In other news, I am almost at the end of The Last Wild, and my review will follow soon. The reason I have taken so long with it is (even though I am enjoying it immensely) I can't stop myself from starting new books! I have started The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. Whilst chatting to Miss Crone last week about our latest reads, I learned that 4C are currently reading the latter as their class novel. I can't wait to chat to 4C about what they thought of the book, and look forward to reading some of their reviews here soon.

  14. I recommend Dogman by Dav Pilkey. It’s a very funny book and in if you’re into superheroes and fun then this book is the book for you. This dog ninja is a policeman but only the best policeman in the world. He solves crimes, mysteries and robberies all in one go, sometimes not even knowing that he’s doing it. If you read Dogman and you like it, then get the two sequels: Dogman Unleashed and Dogman a Tale of Two Kitties.

    These epic books are by the same author as Captain Underpants so if you’re a captain underpants fan this book is the right book for you.

  15. I recommend Pokemon peril. I’m reading it at the moment but so far it’s been really good and if you are into adventures then this book would fit right in your bookcase. You would also like it if you already like Pokemon or animals. Pokemon are just like animals except they look different, they still look similar to certain animals but they have different names, for example: Onix - he looks like a long snake made out of rock. Pokemon can also evolve.

  17. When I was in Year 4, my teacher read a class novel called the House that Sailed Away (by Pat Hutchins). I remember enjoying listening to this story very much as it was quite original, both in its plot and characters. The story is about a family who are stuck inside their house as it has been raining heavily for days on end. As boredom really begins to set in, something incredible happens: the house begins to sail away down the street! This is just the beginning of an exciting adventure for the family that involves pirates, cannibals and much more. I would say this book is best suited for children from 7-9 years old.

  18. In 3k, we have just finished reading “The Deathwood Letters” by a Hazel Townson. If you like adventure stories and people getting kidnapped but making it back home and having a crazy brother named George then you are in luck, this is the right book for you.

    The main characters are Dexter and George (who are best friends), Frankie and Damian. Damian gets into a lot of trouble, it’s not that he’s naughty but something happens to him which is to do with his best friend’s family. I’m not going into too much detail but I’ll tell you that it’s suitable for year 3s to year 6s.

    This book is a gripping book and in all my dreams I have been dreaming about what might happen next and all the time that question was on my mind and it wouldn’t go until I had read the whole entire book, every single word of it. If you get it, it will take you quite a long time to finish (unless you’re a quick reader especially if you are Miss K-A).

    Unfortunately, the author hasn’t written any more Deathwood Letter books, so once you read this book there are no more of these adventure stories. Or will she make more?We will find out soon.....?

    Keep on reading Eli 3k

  19. I recommend “The Football Boy Wonder” by Martin Smith. This book would probably be your favourite book if you are into football and you don’t have any football books already. It’s about a boy who loves football and he gets struck by a lightning bolt just before the Hall Park trials (Hall Park are his local club). He recovers from his injuries just in time for the trials! He has also been given a gift - which will change his life forever.....!

  20. If you are travelling during the holidays, an audio book can make the time fly by. There is nothing better than listening to Harry Potter's adventures narrated by Stephen Fry or chuckling at the antics of Toothless in How to Train Your Dragon read brilliantly by David Tennant.

  21. I am currently reading a book called ‘Wonder’ by R.J Palacio to my class. It is actually great timing, as the film version of Wonder has just been released in cinemas!
    This is one book I would definitely recommend reading BEFORE you go and watch the film!
    It is a story about a boy named August, who was born with some medical issues which means he looks very different to other children. The novel tells the story of August and his first year of school. He has never been to a real school before, and he joins Beecher Prep at the beginning of Year 5. He is very nervous, and worried that the other children will stare and say nasty things about him because of the way he looks. On his journey through school, he meets lots of great people, and also some not-so-great people.
    What makes this book even more enthralling, is that it is split into a few different sections, which each tell the story from a different person’s perspective! It’s always interesting seeing the story through someone elses eyes!
    It is often funny, sometimes sad, and it is ALWAYS good for a discussion after every chapter!
    I would recommend Wonder as an independent read for Year 6 students, and also a great book to read with your parents!
    Enjoy!
    Miss Neil.

  29. I recommend Frankie’s Magic Football, Dragon Curse to people that love football because it has two boys that are passionate about the game called Charlie and Frankie, there is also a girl and a dog who adore football called Louise (the girl) and Max (the dog). They love playing football and that takes them to places such as the museum that need some help. In this story an ancient pottery ball goes missing at the museum, will Frankie, Charlie, Max and Louise solve the problem?

  30. I’ve recently enjoyed three books, each with an interesting female protagonist.


    The Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell
    After the sinking of the Victorian liner, Queen Mary, a baby girl is found floating in a cello case in the middle of the Channel. Her rescuer, the eccentric scholar Charles Maxim, names her Sophie, takes her home to London and brings her up to be as unusual as he is.
    Everybody told her a baby would be too young to remember but Sophie believes that the cello case belonged to her mother, a member of the ship's orchestra, who she saw floating on a door after the ship sank. Charles always says “never ignore a possible” and when the National Childcare Agency decides Sophie must live in an orphanage, they run away together to search for her mother.
    Katherine Rundell wrote this book using inspiration from her summers spent working in Paris and night-times trespassing on the rooftops of Oxford colleges. It takes a while for the action to get going as we are introduced to the main characters and their fairytale quest but once they arrive in Paris the adventure begins. Although Sophie struggles to find enough courage to continue, she learns to value her strangeness and proves that you should always follow your dreams. As she says, “everyone starts out with some strange in them. It’s just, whether or not you decide to keep it.”

    The Bookshop Girl by Sylvia Bishop
    Property Jones (so-called because she turned up in the lost property cupboard of a secondhand bookshop) is hiding a secret from her adoptive family - she can’t read. When they win a famous bookshop in a raffle they can’t wait to move in even though they have to take on “the Gunter” (a rather scary cat who behaves like a parrot) along with all the books.
    All is not quite as it seems though and dastardly villains are about to steal the Montgomery Book Emporium before the family have even settled in. Fortunately, Property compensates for her inability to read with fantastic observation skills and her suspicions are aroused. What follows is a frantic, and occasionally funny, quest to save the bookshop from being dismantled.
    My favourite thing about the book is the magical description of the themed rooms rotating on a mechanical wheel. I would love to lie in a hammock in the Room of Bedtime Stories or visit the Room of Space Adventures although I might give the Room of Sticky Endings a miss!

    The Matilda Effect by Ellie Irving
    We all know that life isn’t fair but how would you feel if someone won a prize that should have been yours? Matilda is still reeling from this injustice when she discovers that her granny missed out on a much bigger award 50 years ago. She decides it is time for the truth to be told and so begins the adventure.
    Journeying across Europe, they encounter a lost dog, a lazy swimmer, a film star and some diamond thieves on their way. This book is definitely a page-turner and jumps from place to place, mishap to mishap in a race against time.
    Matilda is an inspiring character and, being a geek, I loved her science facts spread throughout the story. Make sure you read all the way to the end to learn about her real-life heroes, especially the women who enjoyed recognition for their discoveries... sometimes life is fair!

  45. I would recommend Harry Potter Nd the Order of The Pheonix. People who love magic and flying will certainly like this book.I like the bit where Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville and Luna go to the Department of Mysteries.

    4. If you enjoyed the Chamber of Secrets, I'm sure you'll love the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter book 3) in which Harry's world is turned upside down by a shocking revelation...
      I think the Prisoner of Azkaban might just be one of my favourite books in the Harry Potter series. Do you agree?

In Miss Hiett's reading group, we are reading Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C O'Brien, and I heard there's a sequel called Racso and the rats of NIMH, and, Timothy Frisby had pneumonia in the first one, but in the sequel Timothy is the hero! (Along with the rats) I wonder if we will read it soon...

  51. I recommend the book holes by Louis Sachar to people who like books about friendship, mysteries and escapes. The boys at camp Green lake must dig a hole a day the hole must be five feet deep and five feet across. The warden claims it builds character but it is a lie. Stanley must dig up the truth.

  58. I would recommend Wonder by RJ Pallcio. It’s a book that you need tissues to read as it’s very sad in some parts. It’s about a boy called Augie who has a rare disease that makes his face look weird and about how others treat him at school. It’s a book about what is on the inside that makes a good person and not how people misjudge and stare.

    1. Great choice Theo - I agree about the tissues though!

  69. I recommend a fabulous read by Cressida Cowell, How to train your dragon. It features Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, awesome sword-fighter, dragon whisperer and greatest hero ever, who doesn't fit in with anyone else at Berk. He is petrified in case he doesn't pass his Dragon Initiation Programme, for he will be exiled from Berk. Everyone says he will be let off because he is the Chief's son, but Hicccup is not so sure. Full of hilarious joke and dramatic scenes, in the words of Dave GrevilHallward, Fab-u-lous!

  70. I recommend an amazing book called Diary of a Wimpy kid by Jeff Kinney. Greg Heffley never seems to be able to have good luck. Now that the Valentines day dance has rolled around Greg is definite he will be the boy in the year who all the girls crowd over. However, this is not the case. Suddenly, a last minute girl asks for a date and as happy as cheese Greg agrees. So far everything has gone to plan but Greg is sure the Heffley bad luck will kick in soon. A hilarious read, light funny and more. I recommend this to Y3 and Y4 however I'm sure veryone will enjoy it. 217 pages.

  71. I recommend the girl who could fly by Victoria Forester. A not so well known read but I have decided, drum roll please...that it is my favourite book ever so far! I know this book must be inredible is probably what you are thinking. It features Piper Mcloud, an ordinary country girl with an amazing talent, who is given a gold opportunity, or so she thinks. It made me laugh non-stop, except for when I cried. An emotional roaler coaster for all. I recommend to anyone, (including adults especially Ms. Kennedy and Mr. Thorne). 329 pages.

  72. I recommend Wonder by R.J Palacio. Sad, thought provoking and sweet. About a boy called August with a serious term of Mandibulofacial dysostosis more commonly known as Treach Collins Syndrome. It makes his face all strange and different from the rest. An amazing Novel that I recommend to all.
