    It is so silly, Supertato was attacked by a swarm of evil peas. Superveggies to the rescue and it was so funny super tomato was called a veggie but he was really a fruit.

    Age Group For This Book: 10 - 12

    Review From: Dublin

    It’s not like other books its set in the perspective of lots of characters rather than just one. I think that Auggie Pullman (the main guy) is very brave for starting school even though he has a difficulty.

  • Book Title:   Ruby Rogers is a waste of space

    Book Author:   Sue Limb

    Age Group For This Book: 7 - 9

    Review From: Meath

    I loved the book because it didn’t run out of problems. The book also reminded me of when I wanted a Nintendo. I don’t have an older brother but I have a younger one. I thought it was funny when they said to Ruby’s mum “did you have any nice babies today?” I also thought the dad was very clumsy.

    This book is about a boy that supports Chelsea and ends up driving ambulances around collecting wounded men. It was sad and it was very detailed. Michael Morpurgo makes his books very good.
