February 27th, 2017 by Ms Byrne

Please read three of our book reviews – all these books are in our school library!!

Fantastic Mr. Fox – by Roald Dahl
This book is about three farmers called Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. They don’t like to share but Mr. Fox tries to get their animals. I enjoyed this book because it was so funny and good but also a little bit sad. I would recommend this book for 3rd and 4th class.
By Paul Oladele

This book is about a girl called Pippa Morgan. It is set on Valentine’s Day. She is trying to find her mam a date for Valentine’s Day.
I enjoyed this book because it was really funny. I would recommend this book for 3rd, 4th 5th and 6th class. It is a really good book – I hope you read it.
By Ciara Doran

Diary of a Wimpy Kid – by Jeff Kinney
This book is about a kid named Greg who shows us the way his life is going with his family and at school with all his teachers and school bullies. I enjoyed this book because it is funny and very weird. I recommend this book for all classes.
