Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Strawby Jeff Kinney (reviewed by Lucy Kyle)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw. Book review


After reading diary of a wimpy kid 3 by Jeff Kinney I have decided to write this book review.  Diary of a wimpy kid 3 is a fictional comedy about a boy in middle school called Greg Hefley who writes about his life.

There are lots of characters in the story.  Greg, his Mum, his Dad, his little brother Manny, his older brother Rodrick and his best friend Rowley.  My favourite characters are Greg, Manny and Rodrick because they are hilarious.

My favourite part was when Greg took a blanket and went to sleep on the heater. The heater only stayed on for a while so Greg ended up lying on a cold piece of metal. 

 I give this book five stars and I recommend this book to p4 and over.

The book I have just read is called…ADOLPHUS TIPS

The Plot

 It is about a girl who loses her cat when some army people are practicing to bomb a country and the town have to be evacuated. The girl and her family has to move to there uncles house. The girl always sneaks out the house but she gets caught by an army soldier called Matt and Matt always finds the cat.

 It is a fiction book. The author is MICHAEL MORPURGO.  My most favourite part is when the girl goes and tries to find her cat and she gets caught. I would say that it is quite a sad story. I would give it a 10 out of 10. I would not change the book because it is so good. People who like stories would like this.

“The White Giraffe” by Lauren St John (Reviewed by M.Stewart-Rizza)

The White GiraffeThe White Giraffe is a very good book.  I loved the feeling of mystery in the book, like something suspicious is going on.  I also think one of the highlights of the book for me is the special chemistry between Martine and the White Giraffe (Jemmy).  It is amazing how much work and imagination Lauren St John must have put into the book.  It is very interesting to see the difference between life in South Africa and in Britain.  It is also quite a sad book but not in a bad way.   It is ingenious how Lauren St John has been able to almost bring the characters to life in the readers imagination.  I think The White Giraffe is a very good and imaginative book and would definitely would read the rest of the series.

The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo

I enjoyed this book because it is exciting as you don’t know what is going to happen next .  This  book is about a little boy who was best friends with  a lion cub who was taken away to the circus and they met up years later.

I would give this book  10/10.

Flotsam and Jetsam and the Stormy Surprise

This is a brilliant book about two people called Flotsam and Jetsam.  They live in an upturned boat on a beach with a little crab names Sainsbury that has a welly boot full of water to sleep in.  They find all sorts of things on the beach.

One day there was a storm and  a quack of a duck filled the air with sound.  In the morning they find the duck lying on their beach.  They made a new friend but it stole their bed and made some chicks inside.

My favourite part was when they found out the Shellduck had ducklings.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling


 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, by J.K.  Rowling has inspired me to write to you.  J.K . Rowling describes Harry, Ron and Herminie so well as they try desperately in there fight against Lord Voldermort. I personally think that Harry potter is an exciting character to read about. In the book Harry is cast as an outlaw.

John Lupin is my favourite character because he’s sometimes serious but sometimes funny. The book is excellent in my opinion.

Rudie Dudie, another Jiggy MacCue Story!!


I have just been reading Rudie Dudie by Michael Lawrence.  It is a wonderful book.  It is a great comedy and dramatic story.

It is about a boy called Jiggy McCue and his new drama teacher, Ms Mooney.  Ms Mooney gives him three chances, he breaks them all and she makes him do very embarrassing things.  She thinks he’s a bit like a donkey.  The first thing she makes him do is, to take on the part of Bottom in the “Midsummer’s Night Dream“ by Shakespeare!  When Ms Mooney gets stuck in her fold up bed, who’s going to help her?  Can Jiggy help her?

Michael Lawrence has written loads of Jiggy McCue stories like “The Killer Underpants”, “ Nudie Dudie” and “Kid Swap”.  He is a really good and I really enjoy reading his books.  He likes to write comedy stories for children. He has written over 10 books all in the Jiggy McCue style. 

 I would recommend it to P3s and over.  I give it ***** stars out of 5!
