Book review: The Little Wave

The Little Wave by Pip Harry

REVIEWED BY KOBE, 9, WA

The Little Wave by Pip Harry, UQP,
ISBN 9780702260476

Kobe received a review copy of this book from the publisher.

This story is about three very different friends: Noah, Lottie and Jack meet in a beach visit.

NOAH is  fearless in the surf. So where does his courage go when his best mate pushes him around? You’ll have to read the fabulous book to find out.

LOTTIE loves to explore and collect facts about bugs, but she doesn’t know what to do about her dad filling her lonely house with junk.

JACK wishes to be a cricket star, but how does he improve on school if he is to see the ocean for the first time? Does he improve? Well, if you wanted to know, the next paragraph tells you the answer.

The author leaves a message that you should always remember which is falling down doesn’t mean you never get up. Well she is totally right because you can read what Jack did to prove it. This book is the right book to buy if you want to learn something or teach someone. So that’s why I really recommend for you to buy this book!

PIP HARRY is the author of young adult novels I’ll Tell You Mine, Head of the River and Because of You, which was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards; the Children’s Book Council of Australia — Book of the Year, Older Readers; and the Queensland Literary Awards. She currently lives and writes in Singapore.
