    Review From: Clare

    I really like it, especially the ending. Its a really great book if you are interested in Greek mythology. And even if you aren’t, it’s a great book, but I’d suggest that you read the other books in the series first because it’s the fifth one 😉

    The book I read was facts about war and about 12 young people in time of the war. The one I liked was Jacks diary. He was on a boat to kill the germans and his boat got blown up and he was the only servive and he was called a hero for seviving on the boat because every on else one the boat died and he had a bad wound and his mam was coming but he died before she came and his last words was TELL MY MAM I LOVE HER. But the British won on the sea .Jacks Father and his other brother were fighting in France.It was really good book and I think other people should read it

    Review From: Dublin

    The Incas was a brilliant fact book about how the Incas lived in South America and about their lifestyle and how much stuff they did everyday. It also had pictures that showed what it might have looked like in Inca cities. I didn’t have anything bad to say about this book because it is a fact book with everything that you need to know about the Incas.

  • Book Title:   War Games

    Book Author:   Terry Deary

    Review From: Dublin

    War games is a good book about two children, one boy and one girl, each on the opposite sides of the war between Germany and England. The setting was good because it added a bit of a twist to the story. It was a bit different to other books because they put two similar stories into one book. I gave it three stars because I felt that it could have a bit more detail and could have a bigger twist in both stories but overall it was a good book.

    Review From: Limerick

    It’s a good book so I think people should read it.
    Saturn, Lilly and Lauren thought they want to go on a tour so they went back in time they met a new girl called Violet.
    She was really nice. There was a war on so the teacher took them to London. They were all with new families.
    They went to school. Violet was with mean families. They met her but Lilly and Lauren were with Elsie. She was really kind. Violet, Lauren and Lilly were walking to school and all of a sudden a lot of boys had sticks and rocks so they were scared. George came and got the boys away so I think Violet has a new crush!!!!!
    READ THE BOOK FIND OUT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Review From: Dublin

    Timmy Failure was a really good book that was about a very cheeky boy who got into a lot of trouble for a nature project and he was sent to a camp that was said to have a monster. It was a really creative book that was quite enjoyable but I felt it could have been continued on at the end. Overall a really good book.

    Review From: Dublin

    I liked the book a lot. It told a beautiful story about 3 siblings; Eily, Michael and Peggy. It was a very sad story though it taught me about hope and courage. My favorite character was Peggy. She just has a special personality that I like. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

    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!!
