 Super Sloth

Amelia Cobb


This is a very good book for lower school and animal lovers. It is set in a rescue zoo and there are a series of books. In each book Uncle Horrace saves an animal and brings it back to the rescue zoo. There is always a happy ending.

Trouble According to Humphrey

Betty G Birney


Humphrey is a very clever class hamster. He gets up to lots of mischief when he goes home with a different class mate every weekend because the lock on his cage is broken! There is a frog called Og who lives next to Humphrey and Og goes 'boing' when he has an idea. Humphrey is very clever because he listens to the teacher and he has a note pad and pencil and he can write.

The Magic Faraway Tree

Enid Blyton

This is a great series about a magical tree. If you like Roald Dahl I think you'll like the Magic faraway tree. I liked that it was an adventure book. I would recommend it to a person that is adventurous and does't mind a bit of danger.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

JK Rowling


Harry Potter's name gets pulled from the goblet of fire and now he must compete in three tasks to win 1000 galleons but little did he know, he would need to face his greatest fear. If you like adventure and excitement then this is the book for you. Jim Kay's pictures bring the story to life.

Emily Windsnap and the Monster from the Deep

Liz Kesseler


This book was AMAZING! I ordered it from the public library. It's in a series. The first one's in the school library.It is a heart warming story but can some times be scary. Any - way I really would recommend it to people who like fantasy stories.
