"Who's been on George's island? And what is locked in the mysterious trunk hidden on KirrinIsland? The Famous Five think they're on the trail of smugglers - until they hear a child scream ..."
This is the third book in the Famous Five series; it’s my favourite one yet! It begins with Julian, Dick and Anne going to stay with their cousin Georgina (known as George). George’s mother is rushed to hospital and so the children are left to be looked after by the family’s new cook, the horrible Mrs Stick, her mean husband and their boy Edgar. The Sticks are so awful that the children go off to spend the rest of the holidays on Kirren Island, not forgetting to take good old Timmy the dog with them as well! When they reach the island they discover that someone else has been living there and they’re determined to find out who.
End Blyton is one of my favourite authors, and I really enjoy the Famous Five stories, I have some of them on CD as well as all the books. This story is very exciting because it’s got lots of adventure in it and mystery. The Sticks made very good bad guys! I also enjoyed reading about the children living on the island and cooking their own meals – even if some of the things they ate sounded a bit peculiar!
I think this book is good for girls and boys who love reading adventure stories!
This is a collection of nine stories from all over the world – it has a story about Merlin which comes from Wales where I live as well as tales from countries like Russia and Italy. At the back of the book it tells you more about where the stories come from and how old they are.
My favourite story from this book is ‘The Story of Merlin’ . I like it because it’s got dragons in it.
The stories are too hard for me to read by myself yet so my Mummy and Daddy read them to me.
The drawings are done by Jenny Press and are very bright. The cover of the book makes it look very exciting. I liked how the pictures show what the people in different places used to wear.
I think this is a really good storybook to have read to you before you go to bed!
Here's a list of my 10 favourite books!
1: The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – Fred and George are my favourite characters, they really make me laugh!
2: The Beast Quest series by Adam Blade – I’m only on number 8 and I can’t wait to read about the rest of Tom’s adventures, especially the new ones.
3: The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton – I wish I had my own Kirrin Island!
4: The Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander – my Daddy is reading these to me and we love them.
5: The Voyage of the Dawntreader by C.S. Lewis – this is the best of the Chronicles of Narnia and has all my favourite characters in.
6: The Faraway Tree stories by Enid Blyton – I’d love a Faraway Tree next to my house.
7: Fierce Fighters books – I borrowed this series from the library, my favourite one is about ninjas!
8: Toy Story Storybook Collection – I wish I had walking toys like Buzz Lightyear.
9: Comet in Moominland by Tove Jansson – the best, and most exciting Moomin book.
10: The My Naughty Little Sister books by Dorothy Edwards – the little sister reminds me of my brother Sam!
Commissioner Gordon is kidnapped and Batman has to go to his rescue. Batman discovers that the policeman is being held prisoner by the Joker at the Gotham Amusement Park and sets off to save him.
I think this book is really good as it’s an old type of Batman book and the old ones are normally cool. It’s a really exciting story, even though the Joker isn’t one of my favourite bad guys. My favourite Batman villain is the Scarecrow. I like the illustrations in the book very very much. It’s small so it’s a good book to carry around.
Hello, I'm Christopher. I live in Wales with my Mummy, Daddy and three little brothers. I really love books and reading. My favourite books are Beast Quest, history books and the Chronicles of Prydain - I like anything exciting and funny!
