My Book Review: Five nights at Freddy’s 1.35am

Author Scott Cawthon

Publisher: scholastic

Hi I'm Oscar from Annaduff. NS County Leitrim and I love to read! This book has three short stories. My favourite one being 1.35am there is also room for one more and the new kid. I like 1.35am more than the other because its more exciting than the rest. The main character Deliah is working at a diner and has to stay up late but her alarm clock doesn’t work so in desperate need she goes to a garage sale and finds a doll called Ella later she finds out its an alarm clock so she ends up buying it. She sets it to 1.35pm but when she wakes up its 1.35am at first she thinks nothing of it. So she throughs it out but the next night she also wakes up at 1.35am again. Turns out the doll is cursed and she going after Deliah. I think all the short stories are amazing but I prefer this one to the rest. I give this book a 10 out of 10.

In this story Harry is unwillingly entered into the triwizard tournament. After completing the first trial Harry must figure out the puzzle to the second trial before it is too late.

My Book Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Author Jeff Kinney

Publisher Puffin Books

Year 2008

I really like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. This book is about a boy called Greg Heffleys first day of school. The only reason Greg agreed to doing a diary is because later on when he’s rich and famous he`ll have better things to do than answer peoples stupid questions all day long. So it would come in handy. He thinks he’ll be famous one day but for now he’s stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons. There was a piece of cheese on the basketball court since last Spring and nobody touched it. Then a boy called Darren Walsh touched the cheese so he got the cheese touch and the only way to pass it on was by touching someone else. I would recommend this book for 8-13 years old. I would give it 10 stars.

Book Review: The story of Croke Park

Author: Micheal O Muircheartaigh

 Illustrator: Graham Corcoran

Publisher: O'Brien Press Ltd.

This book is about Croke Park. I recommend this book for 9-13 year olds because it is very interesting for GAA fans. It contains facts about each county/ Croke Park and Irish history. It tells you about how Croke park was built, and tells you about The Sam Maguire Trophy , Liam Mc Carty and lots other trophies that can be won every year. The book tells you all about male and female sports in the GAA. It also describes hurling and football skills. It is a must read for any GAA fan. I rate this book 10 stars out of ten .

Name of the book: Gangsta Granny

Author:David Walliams

Publisher: Harper Collins Publishers

Year: October 2011

Gangsta Granny is a story about a boy named Ben and his boring Granny. All Granny ever does is eat cabbages and play scrabble. One day Ben is dropped off at his Granny's house by his parents who love ballroom dancing. While there Ben finds a biscuit tin full of priceless jewels! He figures out his Granny is a jewel thief! I think Gangsta Granny is a great and funny book. It has a lot of twists which make you want to keep reading. I recommend it for any age. If you are a younger child your parents could read it to you.

An easy 10 stars!

This story is about a 26-story treehouse that lives two people Andy and his friend Terry. It used to be a 13 story treehouse and they've added another 13 stories . They have added a dodem car rink ,a skate ramp ( with a crocodile-pit hazard) , a mud-fighting area and lots of other things. And in a faraway land there was a very big city.

Name of book: The 65 Storey Treehouse

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Author: Andy Griffith's & Terry Denton

Year: 2015

My favourite book is The 65 Storey Treehouse. This book is about two children called Andy and Terry. Andy and Terry live in a 65 storey treehouse! Which is pretty impressive!! On every floor they have a different thing for example on one floor there is a cloning machine. There is also a man who is always grumpy and always has a problem so Andy and Terry have to solve the problem. There is 377 pages and 13 chapters which might seem like not that much but the chapters are long. I love this book because the two boys work together sometimes the fight though but that’s okay. I would love to give this book a 9/10
