Roy of the Rovers – Teamwork
Uncategorised / 22nd April 2019

Title: Roy of the Rovers – Teamwork Series: Roy of the Rovers Author: Tom Palmer This book is the 2nd book out of 3 in the Roy of the Rovers series. Read book 1 before this one otherwise it won’t make as much sense. Roy was gutted as he has just lost 2-1 to his rival team, Tynecaster. Hugo, the best player in the world, scored a goal in the last 5 seconds! This was made even worse as Roy had just scored his rocket goal and had nearly made football history. At the end of the match, Hugo tried to swap shirts with Roy but Roy refused and said he was taking it home for his half-paralysed father. He went to college the next day and experienced a bit of fame. He then went to Mel Park and found out he had a Gola boot deal and could make thousands of pounds from it. At home, he got a call from Johnny Dexter (The Rovers’ coach) who asked him to explain a video of him that was going around school. That video could destroy his football career and his reputation. Which brothers were quoted in this book? (CLUE: us!)…

Uncategorised / 5th March 2019

Title: Return to Groosham Grange Author: Anthony Horowitz Do not read this book if you haven’t read book 1 as it will spoil it for you! This book is about a boy called Vincent who works for a secret organisation who plans to shut down Groosham Grange. The way Vincent must shut it down is to get the Unholy Grail. This means beating David, another boy determined to win the Unholy Grail, in a series of challenges and exams. Vincent must then get the Unholy Grail to Canterbury Cathedral to cause Groosham Grange’s foundations to collapse. This will destroy its dark and good magic. It may kill everyone and everything and this could mean that if David loses, he would have to go back to his mean parents’ house; a place worse than hell! I give it 5***** and recommend it to 9+. I couldn’t put this book down! If you love this book, check out Book 1 in this series and don’t forget to read the Alex Rider series.
