 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K Rowling

Let me start off by saying that this book is great! It is great because it is a child friendly book but it is not for anyone 8 and under. The plot revolves around Newt, a man who captures magical beasts, who realises he cannot do everything by himself.  I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars because I believe that nothing can be perfect!


The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C. S Lewis

I would recommend this book because to me it represents magic. The characters are unbelievable and the end is just the inside of my imagination! This book inspires all my writing when I got to read it in Year 4 – my mind was blown! Age wise, I would recommend this to 7-11 year olds. I would love the whole world to read this book, it is a show stopper! 


The Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

This book is fantastic. It is a book about a wimpy kid who has an older brother. They both love to sleep and meet funny friends together. This doesn’t stop them getting into risky situations and adventures! It is a funny book but I don’t think children under 9 would understand some of the jokes!


Matilda by Roald Dahl

I think the book is great because it has a lot of adventures in it and has very different characters. There is also a lot of surprises! (but I wont spoil it!). I would recommend this book to children age 9 or above. I would also give it 5 stars, it’s GREAT.


George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl

This story is very interesting because it is funny and you can sit there or hours and hours reading it. I would recommend this to anyone my age to read as a bit of fun!
