Man VS Beast By Robert Muchamore

Now this is the 6Th CHERUB book. (Sorry I don't have 4 and 5).

In this book the cherubs have to infiltrate a terrorist animal rights group. But they are not allowed to hurt anyone in the process.

I really think this is a good book.

Maximum Security By Robert Muchamore

The third CHERUB book. This time the three cherubs have to break a criminal out of jail and use him to find his super criminal mother. And to make it realistic the guards don't know. Not forgetting that it is a maximum security prison.

This is a great book. I wasn't sure how they would manage this time.

The Recruit by Robert Muchamore

Another weird name.Why do so many authors have weird names? Anyway this book is first in a series of books I am reading at the moment.

It is about two kids who are orphaned when their mum dies.
The boy is taken into care and the sister is taken by her dad. (The mum married twice).

The boy gets taken to a spy kid academy place called CHERUB where he is trained to be a spy. After which he is taken on a mission. When he gets back the sister has joined.

I won't tell you why though.

I would definately read this again.

And don't forget more of the series to come.

Lady and the Tramp by Walt Disney

Lady is a cocker spaniel who is very clever and pretty. Her owners are Darling and Jim Dear but one day horrible aunt Sarah comes to stay while Darling and Jim Dear are out! Lady has to look after the baby. She meets a dog called Tramp. "Why he doesn't even have a collar!" thought Lady. Lady tells Tramp about her troubles but then they get into trouble themselves!! At the end of the book they have not 1, not 2, not even 3 but 4 very special presents under the Christmas tree! This book is my favourite Disney book because I love dogs! When I read it, it makes me feel really happy!!
If I had to rate it out of 5, I would give it 5 stars ***** !

Half Moon investigations by Eoin Colfer

This book is set in the town of Lock in Ireland. The hero is a twelve year old
Private detective.

He has got his first case.

Only it goes wrong.

Horribly wrong.

My favourite bit is when the hero is spying on the baddie.

Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs the Uranium unicorns from Uranus by Dav Pilkey pictures by Martin Ontiveros

This book is about a robot which is with a rat friend and they are like brothers and do everything together.

Sometimes it is fun and not fun because when Ricky wants to do something, the robot always wants to do it, and then comes and spoils it.

There is a character called Uncle Unicorn which is on Uranus and has turned it into a radioactive dump. All the other unicorns on the planet have run away because of what he has done to it but three unicorns stayed and who mutated into huge unicorns and are now serving Uncle Unicorn.

I thought this book, if I could rate it 0-10, I would vote it 10 because it is very cool. You should try and read it one day.

The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick

This guy has a very weird name, doesn't he?!

This book is set in the far future. It's about a giant earthquake that has destroyed most of the world and the only things left are the Urb (which is the remainder of the cities in one big loop) and in the middle of it is Eden, which is the only bit that resembles the countryside.

The hero is trying to save his sister from dying and, with the help of an old guy, he also tries to get books back - as no one reads books anymore.

This is one of those books where you don't exactly have a favourite bit, or a worst bit. It was just good to read.

I would probably read it again.

It also made me want to read more books by this author.
