Book review: Eloise & the Bucket of Stars

Eloise and the Bucket of Stars by Janeen BrianREVIEWED BY JANE, 8, WA

Eloise & the Bucket of Stars by Janeen Brian, Walker Books Australia, ISBN 9781760651879

The publisher provided a review copy of this book.

Eloise Pail has to do almost all the work at the orphanage. A friendly blacksmith helps her make an amazing discovery, which means she and her friend Janie have to break the rules to save the town.

This is a fantasy book set in the past. I really loved this book, because it is magical. The thing I liked best was when Janie and Eloise became friends. I liked Sister Genevieve because she was always nice.

I think that if you like unicorns or mysteries and are over 7 you would love this book.
