By Luca and Jared
This is a story called Tanglewood by Margret Wild and Viveine Goodman.
This story is about a tree called Tanglewood and how he was so lonely for ages but one day something happened ….it is a great book and is recommended for preps to grade one.
Me and Jared also recommend this book for when your not up for a challenge.
We decided that we want to give this book a score of 4 out of 5 stars!!!
Our favourite character is Tanglewood the tree with feelings.
The thing we liked best is the beautiful illustrations and how they expressed how Tanglewood was feeling. Hope you love this book!
Book review on ‘The Coat’!
The title of this interesting book we read was called ‘The Coat’. The author was Julie Hunt and the illustrator was Ron Brooks. The Coat was about a lonely coat on a scarecrow and a lonely man walking on a pathway. They meet each other and become friends, and the coat took the man to a restaurant in a city called Black Smoke and in the restaurant the man was made famous by the coat because the coat had convinced him to play the accordion in front of the people. The music the man made, made him happy and the audience dance like monkeys and acrobats. When he finally finished his song, he and the coat went on another adventure! We thought it was a nice book and we recommend this book for 5-8 year old children. We also give this book give this book 4 stars out of 5 stars. Our favourite character was the man because he made the people go wild and the illustrations were really abstract which kind of made it a good book. Hope you like the book as well!

Herman and Rosie !
We read a picture story book called Herman and Rosie. It was written by Gus Gordon and published by the Penguin Group.
The story line was about a crocodile called Herman and a Deer called Rosie. Herman likes to play the oboe and Rosie sings at a night club each week. They follow each other’s music and something good happens.
The word difficulty was just right for year 3 and 4.
We like the part where they get new jobs.
They had a good amount of illustrations.
Our favourite character is Rosie the deer.
This is a reasonable book to recommend to children who want to be famous!!!
The report was done by Sasha Byrne, Erica Taylor and Irmak Ak.
Sophie Scott goes South!
We read a long picture story book called Sophie Scott goes South by Alison Lester and published by the Penguin Group.
It was mainly about a young girl called Sophie Scott who travels to Antarctica with her dad. She stays at a place called Mawson and experiences some amazing events. She also meets 2 other people on her journey and they become friends!
The word difficulty was just right for us, there were just the right amount of pictures and it wasn’t boring at all!
We had a favourite character too! The main character…Sophie Scott! We really liked the way the author wrote the book to make it sound like Sophie was telling the story. It was basically written like diary entries. We started this book on the 29th of July this year, and finished on the 5th of August.
We recommend this book for ages 8 and over and also hope you are interested to read it!
