Disclosure: We were sent a copy of Attack of the Slime by Hachette Children’s Books for review. This means very little to a six-year-old, and it’s impossible to influence their opinion.

Editor’s Note: I added the picture, title, category, tags and disclosure. Everything else was thought up and typed independently by MG with no parental input. I’m not sure why she thinks she’s only a year older than her sister today!

Special Guest Reviewers

I feel very fortunate to receive any books from publishers but sometimes I’m sent surprise review copies for an age range I find it hard to review for. I therefore asked my daughters’ lovely school if they’d mind asking some of their keen readers to review some books. Today I got the first set of reviews back! I was thrilled to receive them and the children have done a fantastic job.

Little Red Riding Hood: I liked the part when dear old granny wolf came in the door, because she was really fat. Also the worst part was when the big bag girl (who is the baddy) got a job cutting down trees. I think it was the second best story because it was quite funny.
Rumply Crumply Stinky Pin: This was the best out of all the stories because it was really funny! The best part was when ‘Rumply Crumply Stinky Pin’ made bank notes out of cod (which is fish), because it said ‘smelly bank notes’. AMAZINGLY I would say there is nothing I think could be better!
The Rather Small Turnip: Sadly this was the worst story, because it was hardly funny 🙁 The story did not introduce the fat farmer or his fat wife. There was one thing I found funny it was when the farmer nearly ate his wife! I was a bit disappointed with this story.

Even Sillier Seriously Silly Stories!: Laurence Anholt & Arthur Robins (Orchard Books, 2013)Even Sillier Seriously Silly Stories!: Laurence Anholt & Arthur Robins (Orchard Books, 2013)

This is a really funny book. The characters are really creative. There is a godmother who comes out of the TV and her godson and his horrible step brothers! I would recommend these hilarious stories to children aged 7-10.

Kirsty and Rachel are on a holiday at the famous eco park. But watch out! There’s goblin trouble all around the park. Jack Frost has sent his goblins out to cause trouble. Jennifer has three special objects that help her with her babysitting in fairy land and the human world. But look out Jennifer there’s goblin trouble on the way! Kirsty and Rachel have to help Jennifer recover her magic objects. I would recommend this book for girls age seven to twelve. (Although my little sister who is age six loves it!)

REVIEW Jennifer the Babysitter Fairy: Daisy Meadow (Orchard Books, 2013)

For privacy reasons I can’t share the school or children’s names but I will be sending them thank-you notes for their fantastic work and I hope to have more reviews from this age group in the future.

Disclaimer: We were sent copies of  Not More Seriously Silly Stories!; Even Sillier Seriously Silly Stories!; and Jennifer the Babysitter Fairy by Hachette Children’s Books for review and donated them to our Primary School. No other financial reward was given. These reviews are the honest opinions of the 8-10 year old reviewers. I was not asked to write this post.
