  1. I would deeply recomend the percy jackson series by rick riordan

    • What is it about Percy Jackson that makes it so readable? Do you think you need to know about the Greek myths to enjoy Percy Jackson?

      • Well I do very much like history as you know . But yes it is very adventurous and many minor battle scenes . Set in a modern world . But rick riordan as an american makes it slightly hard to understand .

    Billionaire boy
    Mr stink
    The boy in the dress
    Gangsta Granny

  3. I adore Unhooking the Moon by Gregory Hughes! I also ❤ (heart) Ruby Redfort- Look into my Eyes by Lauren Child.

  4. My favourite book when I was your age was ‘The Dark is Rising’ by Susan Cooper. Has anyone read it? Does it still stand up today in the internet world?

    I didn’t like the film, which set it in America. The book is actually set in the area where I grew up. I thought it set up a scary atmosphere and built the tension to a big climax: even the weather seemed to be on the Dark side against Will. There were actually five books in the series, of which this was the second.

    When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back;
    Three from the circle, three from the track;
    Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone;
    Five will return, and one go alone.

    Iron for the birthday, bronze carried long;
    Wood from the burning, stone out of song;
    Fire in the candle-ring, water from the thaw;
    Six Signs the circle, and the grail gone before.

    Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of gold
    Played to wake the Sleepers, oldest of the old;
    Power from the greenwitch, lost beneath the sea;
    All shall find the light at last, silver on the tree.

  5. That book sounds good Mr H

  6. What do you all make of William Shakespeare after our lesson this week?

  7. It was fun when we did the acting 😀

  8. The Michael Morporgo books are good….
    For some reason the Film War Horse was sadder than the book :,-(

  9. I would defiantly recomend the Malory Towers books by Enid Blyton. They grab me at the first few lines. But they do involve playing tricks on the teachers and I don’t want to give anyone ideas. Ha ha ha! Please read them they’re so good.

  10. I found the lauren st johns mystery books very exciting

  11. I liked the drama in the witches lesson . Macbeth !!

  12. I would also recommend the books by mitchel simmons . Lots of facts and trivia

  13. Phoebe(not the other one)

    Thats interesting because thats really near to my birthday.

  14. I would recommend the H.I.V.E. series.

    • What is it about the H.I.V.E. books you enjoy?

      If you like spy or crime books, my sons enjoyed James Patterson’s ‘Maximum Ride’ series next, along with the Cherub and Henderson’s Boys series from Robert Muchamore.

      I really enjoyed Charlie Higson’s Young James Bond books.

      Also have you tried Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl books? Another super-criminal series, with a big sense of humour.

      • Phoebe(not the other one)

        I recommend Anne Frank’s diary a true story about a Jewish girl in WW2.

  15. read Pig City. Its about two clubs that are rivals (i am not very good at explaining. its way better then it sounds)

    • Phoebe(not the other one)

      I recommend elephant in the garden by Michael Morpurgo . It’s a great book set in ww2 in Germany 1945. It’s all about Elizabeth,Karli and their mother when there city is getting bombed . They need to escape
      It would be hard enough to do without an elephant to look after ……… (read the book to find out more)

  16. For girls, Karen McCombie books are good….. I got the Raspberry Rules book by her at the world book day stall……

  17. I recommend Anthony Horowitz books

  18. Especially Alex Rider books . I would recommend the ‘Just William’ books by Richmal Crompton .

  19. I’ve just picked up a copy of Michelle Paver’s ‘Wolf Brother’ in a second hand bookshop. Anyone read it?

    I’m currently reading ‘Martin Chuzzlewit’ by Charles Dickens, while I’m also dipping into ‘The Dickens Dictionary’. I’m also reading a recent book on Tudor and Stuart History to find out the latest ideas from historians on this period.

    • Did you know you’ve just moved into 5th in the all-time list of contributors?

      I don’t know this book at all, having not read many children’s books for about six years. I remember thinking when I went back to university to study teaching that you are very lucky growing up with so many good writers to choose from, although my teachers probably thought the same about me at your age reading Alan Garner, Susan Cooper, Peter Dickinson, John Christopher and a host of other writers who have gone out of fashion a little. Keep reading.

  41. go read harry potter its scary bet amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1:)

  42. bealovespandas

    The Hunger Games is a great series, but it is for older people. If you like gore and that stuff you should read it.

  43. I am just about to read Tom gates books what are they like?

  44. Look forward to them then!
