    Review From: Galway

    I thought this book was really good because there was pony who got sick but got better in the end. There were three girls named Pam, Anna and Lulu . They all had ponies . The names were Lightning, Acorn and Snow White. One day Lightning got sick. The three girls were so worried so they called Pam’s Dad. Pam’s Dad was a vet. When Pam’s Dad heard about it he rushed home. Pam’s Dad asked them a few questions. One night Pam couldn’t go a sleep so she stayed up watching Lightning. Then she saw girl feeding Lightning some apples. Pam scared the girl and that is what stopped her. Lightning was better once again.

    Review From: Limerick

    The best thing about the book is Judy Moody’s brother Stink. I like Stink because he is obsessed with Abe Lincoln. Abe Lincoln was an old President in America. I liked when Grandma Lou made ghost toasties.

    Review From: Galway

    I thought the book was really good because there was two girls named Kirsty and Rachel. They are best friends from school. Each year they would go to Rainspell Island together and make fairy friends. But this year they go to an activity club. First they did some art and then they played a game of soccer.
    I thought the book was really funny and enjoyable.
