World Book Day!

Hi Year 6K

As you are aware today is ‘World Book Day’ and I would love to find out what you enjoy reading. This can be a short blog about the book; why it’s enjoyable; who are the main characters? What is the plot?…..ssshhh don’t give too much away!

My favourite book is: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – It is set in1939 in Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier.
Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.

    My favorite book is Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz.It’s about a 14 year old boy who is a spy and he works undercover around the world to save the world.It’s very tense since he gets shot at cut and drugged by darts to stun him.I can’t chose a single favorite because they are all amazing.I like these books because there is a lot of action and it fills me with adrenaline and it makes my heart race.

    My favourite book is Lily alone by Jacqueline Wilson.
    Lily is an 11 year old girl who lives with her mum, 6 year old twins Bliss and Baxter and 3 year old sister Pixie. Lily’s mum goes abroad on holiday and leaves Lily alone with her siblings. Her stepdad is on holiday aswell so Lily has to take care of her siblings. Lily has no money to buy food. They camp out in the park. The day before her mum is supposed to arrive home Bliss injures herself and Lily, Baxter and Pixie have to go to foster homes while her mum is with the police and Bliss is in hospital. I really enjoy reading this book and I would recommend it to other kids my age.

    Hi Miss . Kelly,

    My favourite book is David Walliams book ‘Bad Dad’. I like this book as it is funny and has lots of plot twists. The books main characters is a little boy called Frank and his farther Gilbert. Its called bad dad as he was in an accident and got servilely injured. Gilbert was a professional, unbeaten race car driver and drove a mini called Queenie which had a Great Britain flag painted on top. What Gilbert didn’t know was that Frank would sneek out and watch him race. He had to get a new job but he is keeping it a secret!!!!! One night he had to do a top secret ‘mission’ and leaves Frank alone with a baby sitter. BUT……Frank sneeks out and .

    My most enjoyable book to read is a book named “Frankie Foster fizzy pop” by Jean Ure I enjoy reading this because even though I am only half way through the book it already seems like I have read it all! Also, my favourite character in the book is Frankie Fosters sister `Angel` because she is really bossy! Angel reminds me of me (if that makes sense) because she is very bossy and sassy!!

    I like Harry Potter because I have always enjoyed the films that is what got me in to the books JKrowling is author of this amazing story and also the books are allot different to the film, when I first read the book it was amazing then I started watching the films again there is a big different between the 2 one has a lot more detail but the other doesn’t it is a bit weird how the film came of the book because there nothing like each other well it does have a few things in common like the characters Harry Ron Hermione and the ones who’s name we are not allowed to speak of ,then there’s Harrys god father serious Black and you cant forget Dumbledore oh and Hagrid.

    Hi, my favourite book is called Beast Quest by Adam Blade. It is about a boy called Tom and he faces a lot of beast and he goes on to lots of missions. The reason I got into reading these books was because I was walking around Wigan once and I went into a book shop. Suddenly I caught a glimpse of the book so I went over to it and there was a giant row of them, and they were all numbered, so I knew there was a whole series of it.

    Hi Mrs. Kelly,
    As we all know, it is World Book Day today! Therefore I will tell you about my book and why I chose it as my favourite.
    The book I have chosen for my favourite book is: Alex Rider- Ark Angel. The reason I have chosen this book is because it is very “action-packed” as one would say. I am not going to tell you much about this book as I think I am the only one who is up to this book (Joe isn’t that far behind, to be honest!). Basically what happens is that Alex gets sent to hospital as he is shot, but we don’t get told how it happened in the previous book, Scorpia. He meets his “next-door neighbour” Paul Drevin. A Criminal gang called Force Three come, and try to capture Paul. Later in the book, Alex finds that Paul’s Father, Nicholas Drevin, is sending a rocket into space, and it arrives at his outer-space hotel. I shall not tell you any more about the story, as I have not yet finished Ark Angel.
    Best wishes,
    Alex S :D

    Hi Miss Kelly,
    Your book sounds awesome! I would want to read that book even though I am still a child. My favourite book at the moment is called Wonder. The author of the book is called R.J.Palicio. It really grabs my attention and makes me want to read more. My favourite characters are August and Summer. I like August because he is unique and even though he is different to other people I would still be his friend. I like Summer because she is one of the only ones who will take August seriously and will actually listen to what he is saying. In this book we find out that August is bullied by his appearance, the way he talks and the way he eats. August finds it hard to make friends as he has been home-schooled for his life and now he is actually going to school he is finding it a lot harder than expected
