Book reviews by Duncraig Primary: Day 5 pt 1

Duncraig Primary School (in WA) has sent us some year 5 students’ book reviews.* We’ve been posting two reviews a day for the last 5 days—and today we share the final two reviews.

Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, Part 1: The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets, by Dav Pilkey. ISBN 9780439376105, Scholastic US.

"Captain Underpants (cover)"Reviewed by Joe, age 10, Duncraig Primary.

This book is a fun adventurous fiction book for children over 8 years old. It has gooey laughs, amazing structure and funny action. There are two very adventurous boys, George and Harold, who turn their headmaster, Mr Krupp, into a SUPER HERO who fights the dumbest super villains ever. There are a whole series of these humorous books with a flip-o-rama in every book. In this book there are two parts.

This book has 175 pages of laughs, action and adventure. I personally think it is a very adventurous children’s tale.

Book Reviews by Duncraig Primary: Day 2 Pt 2

Duncraig Primary School (in WA) has sent us some year 5 students’ book reviews.* We’ll be posting two reviews a day for the next 5 days so stay tuned!

Fantastic Mr Fox, by Roald Dahl. ISBN: 9780141322650, Penguin Books Ltd.

"Fantastic Mr Fox"Reviewed by Cade, age 11, Duncraig Primary.

This book has everything: excitement, thrills, brave young foxes, three very mean farmers and a fantastic Mr Fox. Can the foxes survive when they are forced to starve? If they dare to leave their underground burrow they will risk being shot at by the mean farmers. Does Mr Fox deserve to be shot at just because he is trying to feed his family? Mr Fox steals his food from the farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, and this is why he is being hunted down and the farmers want to kill him. Boggis is a chicken farmer, Bunce is a duck and goose farmer and Bean is a turkey and apple farmer.

This book makes you feel like you’re right there with the characters. What I also liked about this book is that you have no clue of what’s about to happen next. Roald Dahl has a lot of books but I loved this book most of all of his books. At the end it tells you about the other books he has written.

This is a great book that is recommended for all ages. So find a friend and read to the end!
