Gangsta Granny by David Walliams
Written by Krichelle 7SA

In my opinion I think you should read the tremendous and hilarious book ‘Gangsta Granny’ by David Walliams.  This is the ideal book for comedy-loving readers.  It has an amazing and touching story behind it.  It takes you through all of Granny’s and Ben’s ups and funny downs! It’s based on a young school boy called Ben and some jewels to do with Granny ….
……Seems interesting doesn’t it?
-          To find out more just read it, it’s fantastic!

Henderson’s Boys: Eagle Day by Robert Muchamore
Written by William 7CB
If you want action, anger, spies and war, read Eagle Day.  Muchamore will grip you with suspense; you will not be able to put the book down.  There are many choices to be made whilst working undercover in France, and Henderson will have to sabotage German invasion plans to win the war for the British.  He will have to break the law, keep secrets and blow many areas up before escaping to Britain.  If you love these things, you have just found heaven.

Kaspar; Prince of Cats by Michael Morpurgo
Written by Shannon 7RN

If you read this book I can guarantee that you will not be able to put it down!  It is such a gripping read and is one of my favourite books.   Johnny Trott is a bell boy who carried Countess Kandinsky’s things to her room in the Savoy Hotel … that is when Johnny met Prince of Cats, Kaspar Kadinsky!  From the moment the young Johnny say Kaspar, he knew what an extraordinary cat he was!

Read this book to find out about their journeys and lives ….You’ll definitely want to recommend it!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney
Written by Danny 7RN

You should read the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid because it is outstanding.  It was such a great book and it sold over 16 million copies.  The book has many layers and each layer holds a different story.  The book is very funny and hilarious!

Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson
Written by Anya 7SA

Lola Rose is a really good book because you really don’t know what is going to come next.  It is also good because it could be a real life story; most girls could relate to this.
Jacqueline Wilson is on the most creative authors.  It is mouth-watering, heart-pumping and is very exciting.  You would want to read on more and not stop!!!!!!! The story line is like a roller coaster when the feelings of the characters go from sad to happy to lonely to angry.

In the book you meet lots and lots of new characters on the way and learn more about the characters feelings and emotions.

Horrible Histories by Terry Deary
Written by James 7GE
Critics, I’m going to explain why you should read a book by showing you the one I’m reading at the moment.  The book is called Horrible Histories by Terry Deary and it builds a picture in your head of things that went on in the different stages in history!

It also improves your talking skills when reading it so when you’re older it will be easier to get a job when you’re being interviewed by a boss or manager.
If you have children in the age of 5-13 this book is recommended by librarians and kids who have already read it, also if you finish and you like it there are lots more varieties starring the Saxons, the Romans, the Egyptians, the Tudors and not forgetting World War I and World War II!

Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo
Written by Sean 7GE
Are You looking for an exciting book?

Are You sure you can defeat the story?
Then Private Peaceful is for You!

If you refuse you will be the only person that has never read this adventure book.  But also, have you ever noticed that someone has talked about this book but you don’t know the story?  If so, read this book NOW then your weakness will vanish.  Although you can be boring and miss out but this an awesome recommended book for adults and kids.
