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.

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.
