The Norseman Eyvind, a fierce and loyal Wolfskin, came to a new land on top of the Jerry is accepted by the local tribe, but when the In this all-new very special mini-series, the Aldens have been recruited by a secret society I realised, about half way through reading this, that I had actually read it before, which should have told me everything I needed to know about it. It tells the story of a dog called Buck, who is stolen from his comfortable, civilised life as a pet, and taken to the Klondike as a sledge dog during the gold rush years.
The book is told through the eyes of Buck, although the authorial voice does shout all over it from time to time. This is part of the problem for me. I read Jack London years ago at university when I did a course on writing and the working classes. What London discovered was that he disliked them intensely, he thought them lower than animals, and that there was no hope for them.
He actively propounded eugenics as a clean and humanitarian solution to clearing the slums and helping the fittest survive.
I found this more than a little distasteful. My son and I have been reading it together for months, but he finally decided I was too slow for him, and zipped ahead and finished it himself, which meant I got to read at my own pace, and I zipped off and finished it too. It is brilliant that his hunger to finish books outpaces me, and he has had his head in a book for most of the summer holidays already, which is wonderful.
The same things that make the Jackson books good, work here too.

You have fast paced adventure, snappy dialogue, humour and a dark edge to the story that keeps you reading on. Some of the characters are excellent. I particularly loved Bast the cat goddess, Bes the dwarf god, Khufu the baboon and the albino crocodile, Philip of Macedonia. If these characters made an appearance the chapter was made. Sadly they were bit players for the most part in this book.
I really liked the character of Walt and it was good to see him come out strongly in this last book. I am told, by my son, who is still outreading me, that the Kanes hook up with Percy in future books. I look forward to reading about them. This book is suitable for boys and girls aged 10 and up.
The Egyptian names and terms take a while to get used to, although there is a short glossary at the back of the book, and this book is not a standalone. You do need to have read the other two books in the series first for this to make any sense at all. Amazon Vine offered me the latest novel by Carnegie Medal winner, Kevin Brooks to review a few weeks ago. After reading and being traumatised by The Bunker Diary, I was somewhat hesitant. Then I pulled myself together and said yes.
I decided to give him another go. Born Scared is a very different kettle of fish to The Bunker Diary. It is still quite a traumatic read, but the difference in this book for me, was the very real sense of hope in the book, something I found missing in The Bunker Diary and which was one of the reasons I found it so hard to finish.
In this book we meet Elliot. Elliot is a teenage boy who is absolutely terrified of almost everything, to such an extent that he is a lock in in his own house. Elliot narrates the novel, and according to Elliot, he has been this way since birth. Elliot believes that he remembers his birth, and that he also remembers his twin sister, Ellamay, who died an hour after they were born. Elliot believes that Ellamay is still with him, and his conversations with her litter the book.
The action in the book takes place over the course of one, traumatic day. Elliot, thanks to a mess up at the local pharmacy is almost out of the anti-anxiety drugs which are one of the only things that make his life, such as it is, liveable. His mother, not wanting to leave him, asks a friend to pick them up for her. This is an extraordinary book in many ways. What makes it extraordinary in my opinion is the way that Brooks handles the character of Elliot.
Elliot is forced outside of his comfort zone with spectacular results, as are several other characters in the book, who may be considered normal.

Brooks pushes them all to the edge and then over, and the book is littered with stories of how people behave in extreme situations. What I thought was particularly effective was the fact that although the action of the story is completed so that the novel ends neatly, there is no sense of what happens to each of the characters afterwards, and how what they experience on this intense day, shapes them in the future, and I really wanted to know. The book would be suitable for the pre-teen market, unlike The Bunker Diaries, because although there are episodes of violence they are not too extreme, and are resolved within the plot.
It would work for both boys and girls. York is the third instalment of the Delilah Dusticle adventures. This book leads directly on from the second book in which Delilah and her gang of magical, dust busting cleaners, return from Transylvania only to find that they are off on their travels again. This time, India beckons. The Delilah books are perfect for transition readers as well as more confident readers. Short chapters, clear and easy to follow exciting plot lines and strong characterisation make these real page turners and their length means that for newly independent readers these are achievable reads.
I recommend them for boys and girls aged The cast of characters is varied and interesting. This is an imaginatively written, fun book that will keep the reader hooked from the first to the last page. I read and re-read it numerous times. I also watched it on television, and it has been serialised more than once. The plot of Stig of the Dump means that it is timeless, and Me and My Million is very much of its time. It is set in the Seventies and is a very dated read now. I enjoyed it because certain parts of it reminded me of my own childhood.
Ringo has an older half brother, Elvis, and one day Elvis takes Ringo on a trip out. Elvis wants Ringo to help him, by taking the picture from the scene of the crime and dropping it off at a laundrette in Tottenham Hale. Ringo agrees, and the first part of the plan goes smoothly, until Ringo mixes up the numbers 14 and 41 and gets on the wrong bus. He spends the next few days moving around London from venue to venue with his painting, getting into scrapes and bumping into all sorts of people who want to part him from the picture.
With more luck than judgement, Ringo navigates his way through it all with aplomb. This is a really fast paced adventure story. The glory of having Ringo virtually illiterate and young is that everything is unusual and inexplicable to him. It is this sense of wonder that holds the book up through its many flaws and plot holes and a really rushed and badly put together ending. Having said that, Ringo is a great character and there are some really nice set pieces. Shadow Warriors by Chris Bradford was sent to me by Barrington Stoke and is an action packed adventure story for year olds in the Conkers range of books.

It was sent to me in exchange for my honest review. The books focus on the main character, Taka, who tells the story of his ninja training and several adventures that he and his friends Renzo and Cho embark upon. Each story is linked and they work well together in one volume. The stories are action packed and there are twists and turns on every page, which I really liked as it keeps the reader hooked throughout the stories.
They focus on friendship, loyalty, cunning, and the ability to think as well as you fight.
