Book title: : Matilda 
It is about a girl who likes books and at an early age she went to the library when her parents were at work. Her parents don't like her as much as their other son because he don't like schools / books and is very rude just like them so her dad let her go to a school she met friends and they told her about her teacher in her class . She goes to a nasty school with the worst head teacher ever, called Miss Trunchbull and she would whack people with her stick and swing them round by there pig tails . She liked her teacher better than her parents but they didn't care they were more interested in the telly . So one day Miss Honey took her to her house but told  her that Miss Trunchbull was her auntie but hated her as she was so nasty to her and kept her parents house with Miss Honey's things in her room. Then one day they went into her house and played tricks on Miss Trunchbull and was hiding in her house and ate her chocolate in the end they got caught because Matilda left her ribbon in her house (she forgot it ) then she got put in the chokey and hated Matilda.

 I LOVE this book so much because its an adventure book which happens unusually in a HOSPITAL!! It also has very funny and interesting characters to read about. It is one of MY FAVOURITE BOOKS!

Name: : Genta
Class: : 5J
Book title: : Bad dad
Bad dad is one of the new HILARIOUS books David Williams has once again managed to pull off. It it both touching and funny and you really feel for the characters and want them to succeed once you get to know them. There are some HUGE plot twists  and things you totally didn’t expect however there are some parts you knew what was going to happen. I highly recommend this book to people who love David Williams books and people who are into comedy. I hope David will soon come up with his next book and I’m sure it will be AMAZING

Class: : 5J
Book title: : Harry potter and the chamber of secrets
 It is about a boy who has no parents and when Harry arrives at Hogwarts he is told about salzar Slytherin in class and that is a clue about how and who is making people sick. There are lots of signs around the school.Read the book to find out the rest.



Class: : 1M
Book title: : Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone
The picture on the front is colourful and exciting. The main characters are on it (Harry, Ron and Hermione), and I was pleased to read it. My mum read it to me and this made me happy. I liked it best when she did the voices of the characters because this was funny. My favourite character is Harry because he is a good person.
