    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.

  • The Magician’s Nephew – Book recommendation

    This 140th blog post is dedicated to an all time classic children’s author, C.S.Lewis. This book has no age and is still as exciting to read as it was when it was first published; highly recommended by young readers.

    5-star

    The Magician’s Nephew, the first book of the fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia, was first published in  1955. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you want to encounter more of the wonders of Narnia, read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

    Digory and Polly were tricked by Uncle Andrew and sent to another world. In this land there are pools that can take you to other worlds. They went into one and found an evil sorceress who followed them back to Earth, trying to enslave them. She made Uncle Andrew into her slave. The children managed to get rid of her by sending her to a new world called Narnia, created by a lion called Aslan. In Narnia anything is possible.

    I really liked the book.

     

    The main characters are: Digory, Polly, Uncle Andrew, Jadis, Aslan and Auntry Letty. I liked all the characters except Jadis and Uncle Andrew who made me feel angry.

    My favourite part was when Aslan the lion created because in the book the words that the writer used made me feel happy. There was one funny bit when the bear threw honey in Uncle Andrew’s face and then said that he does not look happy but that he would enjoy it.

    I recommend this book, especially if you want to know how Narnia was created.
