  • Book Title:   Charlotte's Web

    Book Author:   E.B. White

    Age Group For This Book: 7 - 9

    Review From: Cork

    Charlotte’s Web is a heartwarming story. It is the tale of a pig called Wilbur.
    Wilbur was the runt of his litter, and the farmer decided the kindest thing to do would be to kill the tiny piglet. His eight year old daughter Fern however, had other ideas. She made a promise to her father that she would raise Wilbur on a bottle. She kept her promise, and when the piglet was old enough he went to live in Fern’s uncle’s barn. There he made friends with the sheep, lambs, geese, goslings, a rat named Templeton and a grey spider named Charlotte. Fern still came to visit Wilbur every chance she got, which was often because her uncle lived down the road from her. Wilbur had plenty of friends, good food and was quite content living in the barn. But as he got older, the threat of the slaughter house loomed and he was getting distressed. Charlotte the spider thought of a clever plan to save her friend from becoming bacon. I really enjoyed this book. It is magical story and really shows the importance of friendship.

    Very Good. I liked it because there were tricks and magic. Cosmo was my favourite character because he saved them. I did not like Sybil’s mother because she turned kittens into gold for money.

    Review From: Cork

    Cassidy, Molly and Shenice are best friends, but when they start secondary school, things take a turn for the worse. Molly starts acting really strange and sucking up to Cassidy’s dorky older brother Liam. Cassidy and Shenice try their best to persuade her to stop and act normally again. But Molly won’t listen and the girls have a fight. Will they put their argument behind them and make up again? You’ll have to read the book to find out!! I really enjoyed reading this book, it was absolutely hilarious as Cassidy, the main character seemed to always land herself in trouble. I would highly reccommend this book to anyone looking for an enjoyable read!!

When she was painting it she found a silver key. Suddenly Nancy spotted a keyhole. She tried it in the keyhole. It did not fit. Find out what the key is for by reading the book.
