Phone Fear by Christopher Pike (Spooksville)

I enjoyed this book because it was scary. It is exciting to see whats on the next chapter. I liked Cindy the best, she was clever. It is about a man who is trapped in the computer

Soccer

By Khizer, age 12, Year 8, Derby Moor Community School, Derby

I enjoyed it because it had all football in it and it was exiting. There was a match going on between Liverpool and Blackburn and it was 1-0 to Liverpool. Michael Owen scored in the last minute. I liked Michael Owen because his skill, passion, personality is great. The way he plays is great and his tactics are wonderful and great. My favourite part was when Michael Owen ran down the pitch then did a 1-2 With Steve Macmanaman and then curled it round the keeper. I liked it very much because the way he runs he runs at every one. He scares every one when he runs fast and he is red hot.

Football by Bob Wilson

By Gurpreet, age 12, Year 8, Littleover Community School, Derby

I enjoyed reading about Football. In this story David Beckham has got a red card for passing the ball to another team's player. I disliked David Beckham because he passed the ball to another team's player. My favourite part of the book was where David Beckham scored a goal. And I know that David Beckham is a good player. And I think that everyone should read this book.

Ghost Camp by R.L Stine (GooseBumps)

By Muriel., age 11, Year 7, Village Community School, Derby.

I enjoyed this book because it was really scary and the ending was the best because it was the weirdest part of the book. And I like the weird parts.

My book is about two boys on the way to a camp called Camp Spirit Moon. They are so excited but when they get there all this weird stuff keeps on happening to them. My best character was Harry because when somthing weird happend he always knew what to do and he had good ideas when he and his brother were in trouble. My favourite part of the book was when he thought he saw his friend Sam floating on top the bed instead of lying on it so he ran over to the light switch and turned it on but Sam was no longer floating he was tucked in bed fast asleep.

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

By Sharenjit, age 9, Year 6, Peartree Junior School, Derby

I enjoyed James and the Giant Peach. The peach grew when the green crocodile's tongue fell all over the place on the hill and James tried to catch them but they just started to disappear in the ground. Then James' aunts came out and said "Get inside you little beast now and stop messing around."

"But I wasn't, I tripped." "Beat him Sponge!" "Okay, oh it's too early." "Well come on, then we will beat him later in the morning."

"Oh look spiker there's a peach." "What, on the boy?" "No on the tree." "That tree hasn't had a leaf on it so where's a peach come from?"

"Oh yeah Sponge that's right tell the boy to take it off." "No it's still growing." "Yes sponge you're absolutely right".

Then the peach grew really big and some creatures started living in the peach and when James ate a bit of the peach he went inside and jumped through green paper and the creatures said we thought that aunt Spiker and aunt Sponge have found us just then.

Then they all flew to NEW YORK CITY over the Atlantic Ocean. Then the shark nearly ate them in the ocean but the birds hung on and made the peach fly and the shark exploded in the Atlantic Ocean and lived altogether in a happy house and told stories to everyone nearby and everyone wanted to hear them over and over again.

By Kirenjit, age 12, Year 7, Littleover Community School, Derby

This book is about friends, families, love and a adventure. This book is not boring at all as you might have seen it at the cinema and it was EXCELLENT. So I decided to get the book and read it.

My favourite character in this story was ATTA because he was the bravest and he stood up for his friends the bugs.

Football by Bob Wilson

By Ramzan, age 13, Year 8, Derby Moor Community School, Derby

I enjoyed reading about Football. In this story there are two teams and whoever score a goal is going to get a point. My favourite player is David Beckham and I like when he takes a free kick. My favourite part of the book was when Manchester United scored a goal and that makes me very excited.

And I think that everyone should read it.

By Ilyas, age 11, Year 6, St James Junior School, Derby, UK

I enjoyed this book because it was really scary and I've seen it on Television too. In this story there was a boy who found a camera and it was a magical camera. I like the boy who solved the problem and I disliked the ghost because you know that the ghosts are very dirty. and my favourite part of the book was where it was scary and where the ghost was dead. And I think that everyone should read it.

By Kelly, age 11, Peartree, Derby, UK

I enjoyed this book because it was exciting and very good. Well, it's about 3 girls that are under a lot of presssure. One thinks she's very FAT. Ellie is the person that is fat and Magda is the one that goes after the boys and Nadine is the same as Magda.

I liked all of it! Some people might enjoy this book.

White Fang by Jack London

By Alex, age 11, Nottingham, UK

I thought this book was really good. It wasn't like most animal books where the animals talk to each other, but Jack London made it seem like they're still communicating. In places the book is really heart-breaking, some bits gripping, and some really happy.

The book is about a 3-quarters wolf and 1-quarter dog, who is the only survivor of the litter and has to fight to stay alive. When he was still a cub, he was taken in by men and couldn't live without them. He changed hands several times until the very satisfactory ending.

This is a briiliant book, and I would recommend it to anyone 9-15.

Always eat your bogies by Andrew Collet

By Atif, age 11, Year 7, Derby Moor Community School, Derby, UK

This book is about rhymes and poems. I enjoyed the book.

This is a verse from the book:

Always eat your bogies
don't wipe them on your clothes
just gulp them down in one
as you pick them from your nose.

This book is for ages 7-12. Everyone should read it.

This book is about a trainee witch at Miss Cackles Academy for witches. But she can't bear to leave her beloved cat, Tabby, behind when the class goes for a week by the seaside. She has to keep Miss Hardbroom and Miss Cackle from seeing the cat which makes this story good.

Sleepover Girls On Horseback by Fiona Phillips

By Andrenette, age 10, Derby, UK

I did enjoy this book. It's about girls who like horses, stables and who save up money. I like Lindsey, the one who likes horses.

I like the whole book. Everyone should read it!

But boys would probably rather read the back of a cornflake packet!

Goosebumps Say Cheese and Die By R. L. Stine

By Jaskiran, age 11, Year 7, Landau Forte School, Derby, UK

I really enjoyed this book.

Greg found a camera and he took it home. It took weird photos and the photos he took really came true. So he wanted to return the camera back to the Coffman's house. He asked his friend Shari to come with him. When they got there they went to the basement and put the camera where they found it. They heard footsteps. In came Spidey, the man who lived there. He said 'I will not hurt you' and Spidey told them everything he knew about it and said 'I can't let you go' but they escaped.

I liked Shari because she was brave to go back to the Coffman's house.

My favourite part was when Shari disappeared and Greg ripped up the photo and Shari came back.

I think that everyone should read it.
