Book review: A House of Her Own

REVIEWED BY JOSHUA, 8, VIC

A house of her own (cover)

A House of Her Own by Jenny Hughes, illustrated by Jonathan Bentley, Little Hare Books, ISBN 9781742974620

Joshua read this book in his school library.

Audrey tells Dad that she’s bigger than she was yesterday and that their house is too small. Dad gives her some ideas about relocating to a new house like the garage, the shed and even the chook shed.

Then Audrey finds the perfect place … up a tree. Dad helps to build a treehouse. When it’s finished, she loves it.

Will she ever want to come down? But Audrey has some scary thoughts and worries when her dad returns to their old house for the night.

I like this book because I always wanted to build my own tree house that only I could go into.

I recommend the story for children aged 7+.
