The Nanny Piggins Guide To Conquering Christmas by R.A Spratt

Posted on: January 3rd, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Kiera | 10 VIC
  This Nanny Piggins book is great. It has games, recipes (like a 100% delicious lemon drizzle cake), letters from Boris to Santa, Christmas games and holiday fashion advice. My favourite story is when she thinks you’re supposed to do boxing on boxing day, and Nanny Piggins gets in a fight with Mr.Green’s relatives.

  Hi, I am Millie and today I’m reviewing Wonder by R.J Palacio which we read this term as a class. Wonder was full of exciting ups and downs. I really enjoyed this book as it was a real cliff hanger all throughout. Everyone should learn a lesson from this book as it is okay [...]

The 91-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths

Posted on: January 2nd, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Samuel | 9 NSW
  This book was really exciting and funny because they actually have to babysit Mr Big nose’s grandchildren. I will give five out of five as it was the best Treehouse book in the series.

Beast Quest: Mangor, Orge of the Swamp by Adam Blade

Posted on: January 2nd, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Samuel | 9 NSW
  This book was a quite a change because instead of Tom (the main character/master of the beasts) ,he was reading a story about his father fighting a beast! I give this book 4 out of 5 stars because it was really exciting, but Tom wasn’t fighting the beast!
