Adelina recommends you read Strangers at the Stables.
Published by Usborne (2014) – a new edition of the exciting adventure stories set in SANDY LANE STABLES, perfect for pony lovers.
Sandy Lane Stables has to be closed down because Nick and his wife have to go to America; her father is ill. Rosie, a stable girl, is left in charge of the Sandy Lane Stables, all the regular riders promise to help, and everyone is confident that life at the stables will run smoothly. But disaster strikes when a mysterious couple arrives, supposedly sent to help, Rosie’s suspicions are just the beginning.
In my opinion this book had no funny parts, but a scary one, that Sandy Lane has to be closed down. This book was fun to read because of a lot of interesting words and you could picture it in your mind. It teaches you to actually take care of others and not only of ourselves.

‘Singing Sensation’ is book #39 in the Geronimo Stilton series, a best-selling children’s book series, published by Edizioni Piemme of Milan, Italy, since 2000. Scholastic Corporation has published the English version of the series since February 2004. The books are intended for readers in the 6–12-year-old age range.
Read a book report written by Costas, age 11.
Plot: There are two problems. First, there is the problem when Champ heard Geronimo singing in the shower and put him in the concert, where he would be competing with the best singers in the world. The second is that he won, but the Pirate Express people who wanted to make copies hardly sold any CDs. Do Geronimo and his detective friend, Hercule Poirat, solve the mystery? You will have to read the book to find out how!
How the characters made me feel: Benjamin made me feel love, I loved him. Geronimo Stilton made me feel brave,I loved him, too. Trap made me feel nothing and I didn’t really like him. Thea made me feel nothing, but I liked her. Champ made me feel active and I liked that. Hercule Poirot made me feel nothing, but I liked him.
I loved the book. My favourite part was when he had a program because every hour he took a cold shower. There were no funny part. I learned never to give up. I recommend this book to all children from Year 1 to Year 6.

Chips, Beans and Limousines is the first book of three funny, diary-style books from the point of view of a girls named Bathsheba Clarice de Trop. Written by Leila Rasheed and published by Usborne, in 2008.
A girl called Bathsheba Clarice de Trop lives with her mum. She has never met her father. One day she returns from school and finds her mother with a strange man. After a lot of discussions, she realises that this man is her father. Bathsheba starts spending time with him and gets to know him better and finally loves him. Bathsheba, Mum, Dad, the cleaner and Bathsheba’s friends were my favourite characters in the book because they were funny.
I have to say this book was a real page turner!
I liked this book so much. My favourite part was when Bathsheba found her father because it was very touching. The were only funny bits. I learned that we should never come to fast conclusions like Bathsheba did.
I recommend this book because it will touch your heart. It’s about the importance of love for your family.

Matilda uses her magical powers to help Miss Honey get her big, old house back from Miss Trunchbull, who stole the papers for the ownership. Matilda and Miss Honey have a closer friendship as the story goes on.
My favourite and most amusing part was when Matilda used her powers to incredibly levitate a piece of white chalk, so she could write an important message to the terrifying Trunchbull, to help Miss Honey.
Anything is possible!
I totally recommend this amazing book to all children because it is so entertaining and interesting to read.

I L-O-V-E the book! My favourite part was when Hermione and Harry used her time machine to change the past because it made me feel so relieved from what had happened. There were some extremely scary bits and some hilarious bits. I learned if your family is in danger to rush and save it. I recommend this amazing book because when you start, you can’t stop reading.

An Evil Scientist, turned his little brother’s goldfish into a zombie goldfish, with the ability to hypnotise people. After the experiment the fish did not like the Evil Scientist. Every time he had a plan, the zombie goldfish ruined it. The zombie goldfish, once even saved the whole world. That was my favourite part because you could imagine a fish saving the whole world.
The main characters are Zombie Goldfish, Mark, Tom and Sanj. I loved them because they made me feel like I’m in the story.
