William’s book review


The 52-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton

Andy and Terry’s incredible, ever expanding treehouse has thirteen new storeys including a watermelon smashing level, a wave machine, a real life snakes and ladders game (with real snakes and ladders) and plenty more.

I recommend this book because it is funny. The main point is about when they try to find Mr Big Nose their publisher and end up getting eaten up for lunch by veggies! How ridiculous.


Saturday Shopping Spree

Saturday was a great day for book shopping! It was too wet for the garden, too cold for the beach, and with Mr Riding knocking out a wall in the kitchen, it was far too noisy for snuggling up with a good book. I just had to escape the chaos.

Harry Hartog, QBD, David Jones, Big W, K Mart and I still didn’t manage to find more of the Young Sherlock and Spirit Animals series. I’ll have to place an order for these but I did come home with some new treasures.


Book by David Miles was a stand out.  If you ever needed a reminder about why picture books are so special look no further. I can’t wait to share this one with you.

‘… your suddenly in a place that only you can imagine. A place where everything is possible. Where imagination scrapes the skies of opportunity, the forests of what-could-be stretch beyond the horizon, and the friends of fact and fiction make believe all night long under the milky stars of possibility.’

Wow! I wish I had written that.
