I think my cat thinks this is her blog!!!! First book today is a picture book Mr Pusskins by Sam Lloyd. Here is my cat doing a very good impression of Mr Pusskins! We really liked the illustrations by Sam Lloyd with big bright colours. This book is about finding love, he doesn’t realise he had everything until it’s gone. We bought another book in the series after this one about Mr Pusskins being entered into a pet show.
So both books by Louis Sacher.I read Holes as an adult ( yes it is a children’s book ) and I loved it and couldn’t wait to read it to my son.It has a story within a story which all makes sense in the end. The story is about Stanley who gets sent to a juvenile detention centre because of his families bad luck and has to dig holes. Full of great characters, fantastic storytelling.
I really dislike the cover and the title for ‘There’s a boy in the girls’ bathroom’.I think it is very misleading in what the content is about. This is one of my favourite books we have read so far. We really went on a rollercoaster ride of emotions with it.It is about a boy called Bradley that nobody in his class likes. Then a new boy arrives and a school counsellor .The Guardian wrote ‘ One of the best and toughest books in recent years’.
