The Parent Agency

My favourite book is called The Parent Agency by David Baddiel ; the illustrator is called Jim Field. David is a comedian book writer who is best known for working alongside Rob Newman and Frank Skinner . My favourite book (The Parent Agency) is about a 9 year old boy called Barry who is 10 in five days. He hates his name, his parents and his two younger twin sisters T.S.E (The Sisterly Entity). He makes a wish to get better parents because its their fault he has a horrible name and terrible twin sisters so he is whisked away to the parent agency. Barry (who is about to celebrate his 10th birthday) thinks this is the best thing in the world at first but along his journey he discovers how much his real parents really mean to him. At first it is set in his hometown but after two chapters it is in an alternate universe. My favourite part is when he starts talking to the posters on the wall of Neymar and James Bond. I rate it 9.9 out of 10!

Clean break by Jacqueline Wilson

Clean break by Jacqueline Wilson is about a family and the dad has left them. There are three kids in this story and  they all want their dad back but he only wants to stay away. The kids do not like the new person in the picture which is their dads new girlfriend and she doesn’t like them either (but I wont ruin it for you by giving the whole story away). I recommend reading it if you haven’t done yet.

Candy Floss Book Review

My favourite book is called CandyFloss. It is about a girl who has to choose to live with either her mum or dad, at first she chooses to go and live with her mum ( because she loves her the most) but then on the last day she has to choose who to live with…. SHE DECIDES TO GO AND LIVE WITH HER DAD!!! Her mum cried and cried until she couldn’t cry any longer. Floss (her name for short) always loved her dad, especially when he took her out for meals and treats, especially when she got to go to the his dads greasy spoon cafe, even though it wasn’t the best place in town! When her mum had to go to Australia she decided to stay hone with her dad. Even though they are not good at ironing and cleaning up, they got along well when it comes to making butties!!! 

 

The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton

My favourite book is called the wishing chair. 

It is all about two children that have a bench, and the bench grows wings which they sit on and it sends them to all sorts of places. They fly over castles and houses.  The wishing chair takes Peter and Mollie on a strange and wonderful journey . They go to land of spells and meet a giant, some goblins, witches and other amazing creatures too.

I love this book because it is very interesting and it is funny and weird at the same time.

It was published tenth of September 2015. The author was Katherine Rundell. Feo and her mother live in the snowy woods of Russia, in a cosy house with plenty of food. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feo’s mother is a wolf wilder and Feo is a wolf wilder in training, when the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens Feo’s mother’s very existence.

The Winter Wolf by Holly Web

The Winter Wolf is a magical book about a young girl who goes to a cabin in winter. She finds an attic room with an old diary in it. Then she is transported to a magical land. I like this book because it is magical and exiting. The best bits are when she sees a wolf pup and when she starts to like dogs. I also like this book because I really love dogs. I would recommend this book for 8-13 year olds.

Charlie and the chocolate factory by Roald Dahl

I like this book because it has good characters and they have good accents. In the book Charlie doesn’t win the golden ticket but when he goes outside, he finds a 10 pound and he goes to the shop and buys a chocolate Wonka bar. He goes back home and shows the golden ticket to his parents, grandpa and grandma. My best bit is when Charlie goes to candy land. The author is Roald Dahl, who has now passed away. The main characters are Charlie, Grandpa Joe, Veruca Salt, Mike TV, Violet, Augustus Gloop and Willy Wonka. For this book the score would be 100%. One thing I would change would be to make Charlie’s house a bit nicer.

The queen from Brooklyn

My book is about a girl who lives in Jamaica with her nan. But her mum lives in America so she could get a job and she decides she wants to go and live with her mum and explore America. However, because she has been with her nan nearly all her life, she doesn’t think she can leave her but she does so. When she arrives, she realises America is not like Jamaica and also her mum had a secret and she tells her only when they get home. The secret was that her mum had been married for a year. At first she didn’t think it was a good idea that her mum got married. But after all that she get to know him a lot. The reason why she likes him is because he treats her as if she was his own kid and that is why it is my favourite book.

The author is: Dianne Brooke

I like it because it’s set in Jamaica and I like to see how the Jamaican’s write books.

Score: I would give it a 10/10

The stuff I would change: I would change the grammar. Because it’s from Jamaica they speak differently, so it’s a bit hard to understand in parts.
