is a good chapter book for people aged 9-10+
because it's about a girl that wants a puppy
then gets promised a kitten then gets a big
old cat that is not a wonderdog, but she wants
to train him as a wonderdog or a wondercat,
but then her brother goes on the computer and invites
over a movie stunter, but it's actually a girl called
hellan who had a dog called scuba and goes
overboard with training horatio and they get
thrown into a world of weirdness...

Ever heard of Gavin Bishop….? If not I would highly recommend the story Piano Rock as your first choice!!!!!!!! This story is about Gavin’s idyllic 1950’s childhood living beside the beautiful Lake Wakatipu. Catching trains, going to school on a horse and even eating mutton every day! Many book reviewers have praised the magnificent illustrations that go along with this book. The also love how he has used two different techniques using black and white but also throwing in some colour aswell. In my opinion the illustrations bring the story to life. I f you want to buy this book it usually sell for about $26.99 so get into any of your good bookseller and get yourself a copy!!!!!!!! By Alysha

‘Slinky Malinki’s Christmas Crackers’ is a great picture book by Lynley Dodd. It starts off with a wonderfully decorated Christmas tree with tinsel and bows and everything. But then, things won’t be quite the same as they used to be when that sneaky cat Slinky Malinki comes along... This book would mostly be suitable for an audience of year 1 and up. The thing I like the most about this book is how silly the ending is, but that’s another story (not really but you get the idea). I give this book a 4/5.
