The Journey
The journey has a lot of dark and bright colours and the book is quite sad because their dad died in the war. They are refugees so they are trying to escape from where they live. I recommend this book for 9+. By jaylee,Nicholas and Charlie yr6

Wild Animals of the North
Wild animals of the north is a beautiful book that I personally really enjoyed. I love the content of it because of the type of story it tells. It’s not an actual story but a collection of facts about these amazing animals accompanied by truly fantastic illustrations! Me being really into art and drawings, I love the type of art style that Dieter Brawn uses and is like nothing I have ever seen before. I would recommend this book for 9+. Amelia Y6

There is a tribe of kids
This book is all about groups of animals, objects and humans. ‘There is a tribe of kids’ is a book with loads of illustrations for younger children or older. When you turn each page, there’s always a different animal or object or human. When this happens, it gives a special effect of the book instead of just words to look at. What’s also good about this type of story is that there are lots of collective nouns to make it adventurous. The collective nouns help the story to flow well, instead of just saying: ‘the dog, the whale’. By Alice and lucy,Yr6

Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth
Prez loves his granddad. But when he gets into a spot of bother, he gets taken away to the Temporary. When he has to go and live with the Blythes, he meets Sputnik (a small, loud alien) and is shocked to hear that Earth is about to be destroyed. Unless Prez can show him 10 amazing things to see or do on our planet . . . I immensely enjoyed this book. Each section of the story fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. Speaking of that, I was confused at first by the plot, but I've not grown to love the book. And as if that wasn't enough, the author is also a previous winner of the competition! Could we have another Cottrell Boyce book emerge victorious? We'll have to find out . . . Rating 4 stars . By Izzy (Y5)
