Book Review: The Big Split

Here is the second of the book reviews sent in by some fantastic readers at Yidarra Catholic Primary School.*

Go Girl! : The Big Split, by Rowan McAuley, illustrated by Sonia Dixon, ISBN 9781921098093, Egmont Books

The Big Split (cover)

I read a book called The Big Split. It was very interesting.

The book was about a family who splits up. So the kids, Holly and Faith, wagged a day of school. The setting is in the forest near a big waterfall.

I would recommend it for people who like to read about other people. I would give it a 9 out of 10 starts. My favourite part was when they tricked their mum into thinking that they were at school.

I would recommend it to year 2 and over.
