Happy Birthday, Oliver Moon – A book review

The Oliver Moon books, published by Usborne and written by Sue Mongredien are very popular amongst primary school children. They are easy to read, with fun stories children love.

Read on for a book review, by Simran (age 10).

It’s Oliver Moon’s birthday and Mrs. Moon invites Oliver’s not so good wizardly friends by accident. Bully Bogeywort sneaks around Oliver’s birthday presents and creates havoc. There is a big chunk missing from the squishy work cake Mr. Moon had baked, and one of the candles is broken – then Granny Moon appears! It’s full of magic spells and surprises. 

My favourite part was when it began raining down from Bully’s pockets onto the table, which where Oliver’s presents. It was funny that the cupcake was talking. 

I really enjoyed this book and I will read more of the Oliver Moon series. I would especially love to read this book to my little sister to see if she would like it. I give it a three star rating. ⭐⭐⭐
