It was a bit sad because some animals are extinct and it made me want to keep endangered animals and stop people cutting down the homes of animals and killing them.

The Amazing World of Tom Gates

Review From:
Dublin
I have read six books in the series of Tom Gates. All the books are very funny and very easy to read. The books are about a boy named Tom Gates and his daily struggles with life and his relationship with his grumpy sister called Delia and his best friend Derek. I would highly recommend the series of books and know that of you start to read one you will want to read them all and not put them down.
I was not such a keen reader at the start of the summer and by the end of the summer I now love to read.

Review From:
Dublin
I loved this book and stayed in my room for nearly three days reading it. It is about a robot called Roz who wakes up one day on an island with no idea of how she got there. A bunch of scary things happen as not everyone on the island is friendly towards her. I don't want to give too much away but I liked this book as it made me think about robotS and nature and how they would not have a clue. In so many ways humans are way ahead of robots but this book make me think maybe they could catch up with us. I loved Roz and I did not want the book to end.
