Kids' book news, reviews and interviews



Maisy is 9 and loves to read, ride horses and run around getting sweaty. She has a habit of starting a book and then starting another one until she is reading about 6 books at once. She loves to debate and gets lots of practise arguing with her sister at home. She likes anything neon and will eat anything to do with chocolate that is edible. Maisy likes pretending things and loves books without pictures because she gets to imagine on her own what it looks like, just by reading a description. She is accident prone and is always covered in bruises but never knows how she got the bruises. In her 9 years she has already broken a leg and an arm! She is good at imitating people from books. Once during shared reading, the class were reading Great Expectations and she was asked to come to the front and imitate Estella and it was hilarious (said everyone).




Most overused phrase:

“That is a matter of opinion” 

Favourite book quote:

“‘Mr. Stink stank. He also stunk, and if it is correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well.”

(David Walliams, Mr. Stink)
