Title: Monster and Chips Author: David O'Connell The book was about a boy who was sent to buy chips in a diner for dinner. He had a couple of problems during his time in the diner as he was the only human there because the rest of the staff and customers were MONSTERS! All the monsters called the boy a ‘hooman’ but his name was Joe. The diner served strange foods like ‘beetle nuggets, deep-fried trouser burp and CHIPS! My favourite character was Uncton Slugglesbutt because he was cheeky and a cheat and “cheats never prosper!” I recommend this book to people who like monsters, funny stories and CHIPS! I can’t wait to read Monster and Chips – Night of the Living Bread! Rating – 100/100!
Title: Dear Scarlett Author: Fleur Hitchcock Scarlett’s dad was called Richard McNally and on Scarlett’s 11th birthday, 5 years after her father died, she got a box from her father’s solicitor which made her wonder if he really was a notorious jewel thief or something much more exciting!!! Scarlett and her new friend Ellie go on a big adventure that leads to the truth about her father. Most of the clues that would lead her through her father’s life were in the box he gave her. The most important clues were “keep looking up” and “keep up the gym” and at the end of the book she finds out how to use them. The book was very funny, scary, mysterious and exciting and it kept me entertained. My favourite character is Syd, Scarlett’s brother because he is funny and makes me laugh when he tries to speak. I recommend this book to children who like mysteries and going on adventures. I think children aged 7 would still understand the story and enjoy it even though it is for age 9+. I give this book 5/5 because it is brilliant. I would like to read more of Fleur Hitchcock’s books.
