Thank you to Tasha for her review of this book. (I like Tasha’s blog too, it is all about games.)
Billionaire Boy is a book by David Walliams. I like it because it’s about a boy called Joe Spud who has got rollercoaster in his back garden, a formula one racing car, a helicopter. His dad made all this money by…making loo rolls for 10p each. The only thing he hasn’t got is a…friend.
Mr Spud pays a little actress, Joe’s age to be his friend. When Joe finds out, he is furious and runs away.

For Christmas I was given four books from my grandma from the Black Stallion adventures because she knows I like horses and so did my mum and she read these books in the olden days.
There are 24 books in total.
The first one is called ‘Shipwrecked with a wild stallion!’
The first part is all about boats which is a bit scary, and the principal person is Alec. The horse in the story is wild but becomes friends with Alec. I won’t tell you the rest to spoil the story but it’s really interesting.
We went to the printers in England to see my mummy’s book (called The Night Rainbow)! And we saw all the machines and we saw the book itself which was very interesting.
We weren’t allowed to see everything because the factory is busy and the machines are dangerous, but it was still good.
They make 500,000 books a day to go all over the world.
When I got home I did a talk to my class and then my teacher sent me to all the other classes. I took all the different book parts that Jonathan gave me. Everyone was really amazed and my teacher said it was important to know about books.
Thank you Bloomsbury and Jonathan at the printers for letting us go and for the cookies!
I was given this book for a present because I really like insects.
I like the book because it’s all about insects and bugs and there are a lot of pictures.
It shows creatures from all around the world that we don’t get in France. It’s got scorpions, spiders, ticks and lots more.
My favourite is the Java Blue Scorpion. We get scorpions at our house, but not ones as beautiful as that.
The author is Martin Walters
I like the art book. It’s not mine it’s my mum’s!
It’s great, because it’s absolutely interesting…every page is different!
There are ( 500 ) artists in total My favourite is (19) « Summer » by Giuseppe Arcimoboldo! It is a garden made of fruit and veg and it is shaped like a lady.
I got this book for my birthday.
I like this book because: it’s not a story book, it’s a poetry book.
My favourite poem is Lazy Jane, because it is funny. She wants a drink of water but she is so lazy she waits and waits and waits for it to rain.
My second favourite is the poem that is written on the neck of a running giraffe.
I am seven years old and these poems are easy for me to read.
This book will keep you busy for ages with so much to do! Design your own pair of earrings, try a spot of colouring or even learn how to make a button bracelet. I think it is great for anyone who loves designing, being creative and colouring. It shows you how to customise anything and everything. You could even draw a face on an umbrella! Despite the price I would definitely recommend it.
My Wonderful World of Fashion by Nina Chakrabarti
I like this book because Stella, the main character is took to Evergreen summer camp and gets mistaken for a boy.
She also is in the emerald team and has to share a room with spoilt Louise and hateful Karen. Well luckily she had made friends with Marzipan who was one of the emeralds just like Stella.
To make it even worse Uncle Ron forces her into doing swimming lessons when her mum said she wouldn’t have to do them.
WILL SHE SURVIVE?
The author Jacqueline Wilson.
Thank you to Nola for this review:
I like Black Beauty because he travels a lot and he likes some places and some he does not. And his friends are pulled away from him. And he is taken away to a horse market. The lady Anne helps him if he is hurt. And gives him lots of oats. He loves oats. It was very exciting because I wanted to know who was his next owner.
The author is Anna Sewell.
This book’s a bit hard to describe. It is full of adventure and it is sometimes very funny and sometimes a bit scary.
The story happens in England in a place called Lamonic Bibber, which is a curious place full of lots of different characters.
Mr Gum is very evil and so is Billy William. The hero is Polly who is a little girl and Friday O Leary who is a grown up. They are there to save the day.
The book is good for Age 6+ I think, but my sister who is 4 likes to have it read to her too.
We have also got another Mr Gum story on a CD that I like to listen to. It is called Mr Gum and the Biscuit Billionaire.
The author is Andy Stanton and the pictures are by David Tazzyman.
