Book review: The adventures of Jellybean

REVIEWED BY TIRION, 9, VIC

The adventures of Jellybean by Bill Condon and Dianne Bates, UQP, ISBN 9780702260001

Book cover shows a white goat being chased by two small boys. In the background is a wooden fence on green grass and a clear blue sky.

The publisher provided a review copy of this title.

An imaginative adventure of mischief and fun! Guaranteed to make kids smile when they read about the tricks that Jellybean, a family pet goat, gets up to. I find that the authors bring alive the characters, Jellybean and her owners, Rory and Trang, by creating lots of exciting events and problems to solve. Authors Bill Condon and Dianne Bates try their best to make their readers laugh.

Will Jellybean ever stop eating what she’s not meant to?

The book keeps readers interested because Jellybean always gets caught up in a new exploit. This tale of fun and imagination is perfect for kids aged 6+ who enjoy humorous animal adventure stories. I give this book a 4 ½ star rating out of 5.
