July Reviews From St Kilda

Stormbreaker, Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz, Review by Spike

Alex is a fourteen year old boy who is forcibly recruited into the MI6. His parents died in a plane crash so then he had gone live with his uncle but then his uncle was killed in a car crash. In the MI6 Alex is forced to go undercover and research a mysterious computer, known as Stormbreaker, which is going to be given to children in schools all around the world.  

There are ten books in the series with one side story.

Rated 5/5 Reallys "The best book in the history of books. AWESOME"

The Hidden Oracle: The Trials of Apollo, Book 1, by Rick Riordan, Review by Yuanquan

Apollo has been banished from Olympus and is now an Earth dwelling mortal. He persuades Percy Jackson to drive him to camp Halfblood, where the demigods, children of gods and goddesses go to train and learn to protect themselves against monsters. Now he is mortal he sucks at archery and has none of his godly powers. Apollo has to find an oracle but in the meantime he gets attacked by monsters.

Rated: 2.5/5 Reallys

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling, Review by Lachlan

Harry Potter returns to school in a flying car and finds out he can talk to snakes and is the heir of Slytherin.

Rated: 4.5/5 Reallys "It was good but not my favourite, there wasn't enough action or spells." 

The Treehouse Series by Andy Griffiths; illustrated by Terry Denton, Review by Hope

The writer and the illustrator sort of put themselves in the story as the main characters. Each year a new book is released, So far it's up to the 78-Story Treehouse. My favourite one is 65, where they go time travelling to stop their treehouse from being destroyed. In some of the books it says what levels they have left to add. I find the word choice gets a little bit repetitive sometimes but it's really good.  

Rated: 4/5 Reallys  "I really like these book because they're sort of like adventure but also a bit of fantasy."

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell, Review by Lauren

My friend recommended it. It's about a horse called Black Beauty and he's black, obviously! Chapter one is his first home and chapter two is about his life and what happened to him and his masters.
It's a very old book. I haven't finished it yet.

Rated: 4.5/5 "It is a bit repetitive, which is annoying but it is really good anyway."

Nicholas by Rene Goscinny & Jean-Jacques Sempe; translated by Anthea Bell, Review by Nicholas

Nicholas likes walking to school with his Dad, but he doesn't like actually being at school because he gets bullied a lot. My dad's friend wrote it.

Rated: 5/5 Reallys. "I really liked the story"
