One of the books which I enjoyed the most this year is Treason by Berlie Doherty. The first time I read it, I couldn’t put it down because I was so eager to find out what happened in the next chapter! It also taught me a lot about the Tudor era as this is the time period it is set in. Berlie Doherty has also written other historical fiction which I enjoyed such as Street Child.

My favourite children’s book is Monkey Puzzle because it’s got lots of animals and uses lots of words to describe them and because the children can join in with repeated refrains.


My favourite children's author is Roald Dahl because he has fun with his writing and makes up his own words!

My favourite children's books are the Harry Potter series. When the first book came out, I read  it and then re-read it because I enjoyed it so much.

J.K. Rowling is my favourite author because she creates interesting plots that keep you guessing and creates characters that you believe in. She is a very imaginative writer who appeals to both young and old.

My favourite children's book is 'We're all going on a Bear Hunt' because it has rhyming and repetitive text which lends itself perfectly for reading aloud. The illustrations are also beautiful and entertaining.

My favourite children's author is Roald Dahl because he is incredibly creative with hsi vocabulary and particularly his character names.

My favourite book is "The Magic Faraway Tree" by Enid Blyton.

I loved getting into the stories that the characters got up to, visiting different lands of the Faraway Tree. Spent hours reading this book.


My favourite author has to be Enid Blyton. I loved any of her books, such as the Secret Seven, Famous Five, Naughty Amelia Jane and The Magic Faraway Tree. Her imagination motivated to me to write creatively.

My favourite children's book has always been the Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl...growing up as a child I was a massive book worm but my teacher introduced me to Roald Dahl and I fell in love with this story.The crocodile is so naughty and loves coming up with clever tricks and cunning plans that always go wrong!!!The illustrations really make the story and I love reading this out loud and doing the different voices !!
