Mrs Mad's humble opinion
8/10 You are working hard. Well done.
What's it about?
A guide to some of the best reads available at the moment!
What happens?
This guide has been put together with contributions from some of the best children's authors of the moment and by others who just love reading young people's books. It is easy to use and gives good descriptions of the books on offer.
Is it easy to read?
It is quite easy to use and suitable for all.
Anything else?
This is a really useful book, I think teachers should have a copy in their classrooms and libraries should have one as well. As a teacher you can see how this kind of book would help you to help children find books to read but also help you find something new to read to the class. I was very pleased to see that almost every book I looked for I found, and those I could not find still had an entry for the author, but for another book they had written.
Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
With this book, 8-12 year-olds should never again cry, "What will I read next?" This is an up-to-date guide to the best children's books around - from classics to titles published to the end of 2003. The funny, friendly and frank recommendations have been personally written for children by many of their favourite and best-known authors including Anthony Horowitz, Jacqueline Wilson, David Almond, Celia Rees, Darren Shan and Dick King-Smith. Each entry is cross-referenced to other books that readers are bound to enjoy. Plus, there are features on the most popular subjects around, including fantasy, animal stories, school stories and adventure.
