April reviews from Albert Park

White boots by Noel Streatfeild - reviewed by Emma B. 

Harriet has been very ill and decides to take up ice-skating to get physically better. Through this she meets Lalla, who has been practicing since she was 3 years old. Harriet and Lalla become best friends. However, as Harriet gets better it becomes clear that she is a tallented skater - this makes Lalla jealous... I haven't finished yet! I found some parts of the book difficult because some words are tricky.

Rated:  5 out of 5

Prince Caspian : chronicles of Narnia, bk. 4 by C.S. Lewis - reviewed by Alex G.

Caspian's parents have died and he is raised by an 'uncle'. Caspian finds out about old Narnia through his nurse. He also finds out that his uncle is not really his uncle and that he is evil and wants to kill Caspian. Prince Caspian has to leave straight away.

I really like it so will give it 5 out of 5!

Ruins of Gorlan : Ranger's apprentice, bk. 1 by John Flanagan - reviewed by Ben

Will is a ward who lives in a castle because his parents have died.  Halt is a Ranger who wants to take on Will as his apprentice.  They go to a Ranger Village, where Halt finds out that the evil Lord Morgethorn wants to attack them. It’s exciting when you first read it.

Rated:  5 out of 5

The last dragon chronicles : the fire ascending by Chris D’Lacey - reviewed by Annabel

The Fire Ascending takes us on a journey through time.  Before we set off we have to remember this rule: Don’t interfere! But the rule has been broken and at the dawn of time history is changing … and the dragons and their enemies are locked in a battle and David Rain needs to save those around him and the dragons and the people he loves.  I love this book!

Rated:  5 out of 5
