After concentrating on the reviews from the boys earlier in the week, it's time to find out what the girls have been reading today.
Mackenzie had to read about a famous person and she chose a book called Who is Queen Elizabeth by June Eding. She didn't like King Henry VIII very much but enjoyed reading about England at the time of Elizabeth I and especially when the English Navy defeated the Armada (Spanish Navy). Mackenzie also read The Black Stallion and Flame by Walter Farley (one of my favourites at her age). She thought is was awesome, very exciting and gave it five stars.
Ashleigh had to read a non-fiction book about animals and her review is on Whales and Dolphins by Caroline Bingham. She called the book interesting with lots of information, although she did think she might have to get another book out as well if she was using it to do a school project.
Nicole thought Pish Posh by Ellen Potter was very exciting. She recommends it as a book where the mystery is a bit different because you can't guess the ending.
Rowan read a New Zealand book Big Fish Little Fish by Melanie Drewery. Her favourite character was Grandad and her least favourite was Jim. She thought it was awesome and interesting and particularly liked when they went fishing.
Ashleigh reviewed the Ingo trilogy by Helen Dunmore (Ingo, The Tide Knot and The Deep). This magical trilogy is based on the mermaid legend and she thinks it is an awesome series.
