The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl reviewed by Angel Peters

This book is about a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey that become window cleaners to make some money. I liked in this book was that the animals could talk and that they all got their wishes in the end. Pelly was my favourite character. He had a special beak and got the burglar. What I disliked about this book was that it was too fake. This book is fun, happy and adventurous.


Lucinda’s Secret by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black reviewed by Millie Noonan.

This book is a thrilling adventure about discovering an unknown world. I like how they travel and the adventures they have. Aunt Lucina is my favourite character ; she is mysterious, wondrous and very courageous. I dislike the book’s complications but would recommend it as it is a wonderful and fantastic adventure.
