Age recommendation: 9-11=a perfect read,will entertain viewers your age
                                     12= a good,easy read 

I love the book Queenie, I read it when I was 10 years old, a year ago,and was totally mesmerized by this book and it is a good length so that it is not over to quick or lasts to long and I could keep interest the whole time I was reading it. I must of read it another 4 times since then and never have got bored.The descriptions and illustrations are fantastic truly letting you imagine the characters and feel their emotions (Jacqueline did this so well I laughed and cried throughout the story) 

                                                    The Basic Plot (no spoilers)
It's 1953, the year Elizabeth is to be crowned Queen of England. Elsie Kettle can't wait to go to London to see the celebrations on Coronation Day. Elsie lives with her Nan - her mum works as a showgirl, so she's not around very often.Luckily, she and Nan are very close.

Then tragedy strikes. Nan and Elsie both fall ill with tuberculosis, and Elsie finds herself whisked away to the children's ward of the hospital. Confined to bed for months on end, Elsie finds it very hard to adapt to the hospital's strict regime. But she invents astonishing ways of entertaining the other children on the ward, and for the first time finds herself surrounded by true friends - including Queenie, the hospital's majestic white cat. Finally, Elsie is well enough to leave hospital.

 But before she does, she has one very special, very unexpected visitor...

By Grace, age 11

Age recommendation: 9-12=a fantastic,all round easy read may intrest readers 9, 10 and 11 more than 12 but is still a book you do not want to miss out on.

WOW is all I can say about this book it is a true adventure story but not to scary. Vey strong characters and one of them you are certain to love. This book is adapted from the original version,5 children and it by E.Nesbit. I read this when I was 10 and fell in love with it and still love it today, it is a book you can read over and over yet not get bored. Once again a great length perfect for readers 9-11.


Rosalind-The eldest, although sometimes she wishes she wasn't.

Robbie-Is her animal loving younger brother.

Smash-Is their stepsister and she isn't to happy about it.

Maudie-Is the baby of the family-everybody loves Maudie.



Age recommendation: 10 and 11: A pretty much perfect read,a bit upsetting at parts if your tame but                                            fantastic all round, exhilarating and fun!

                                    12 and (less confident 13yr olds):A good ,gripping and most of all entertaining                                       read.Easy-going.

This book totally gripped me from cover to cover,entertaining me at every unexpected change in the story. I read this in about a day or two (although my eyes have been glued to the page the whole time!) I loved some intriguing characters and loved it even more as I found similarities to Cookie,ANIMALS! 
totally fun and interesting as I explored every chapter in the story. Despite reading this many times I still found myself gasping,crying and laughing!
