Children’s Book Review – A Pirate Song by Author Justin Davis

IMG_20190611_200113.jpg

I was privileged to be asked to be part of A Pirate Song blog tour and I got the chance to read and review Justin Davis’s delightful new book A Pirate Song.

A Pirate Song is a vibrant rhyming picture book for children that will really immerse them in the world of pirates. Throughout the book the words are written in true pirate style with a lot of ‘Are Ye’ and ‘Me hearties’, there is even a pirate song for the children to learn and join in with.

This is a great book for younger children especially those that love Pirates. My girls enjoyed reading the book and following the Pirates on their adventure across the stormy seas to look for buried treasure. The rhythm and flow of the book makes it easy for younger children to read and join in with.

The book has been beautifully illustrated by Stephanie Jayne who also illustrated my first children’s book ‘Pete The Cheeky Parakeet’. The pictures are bold and bright and really help bring the story to life.

Book Review of ‘The Fabulous Diary of Persephone Pinchgut’ book collection from Books 2 Door

IMG_20190501_185447.jpg

We have been reviewing ‘The Fabulous Diary of Persephone Pinchgut’ book collection from Books 2 Door.

This collection comes with 4 great books from ‘The Fabulous Diary of Persephone Pinchgut’ series by author Aleesah Darlison. The books include Musical Mayhem, Model Mania, Tropical Trouble and Birthday Bonanza, they are all written in the format of Persephone’s secret diary.  These books are for young readers aged around 7-9 years old, they are in an easy to read format and are perfect for children to follow along with.

My girls have loved reading the these books and following Persephone’s diary and her most secret thoughts that she shares in it.

The books are all uplifting even when talking about her Dad not being around and her mother being a single mum it is still written in a positive way instead of showing sadness or anger. I also love the twin bond that the sisters have going on and how they are always there for one another and get through whatever is thrown at them together.

My girls loved the humour in the books and laughed along whilst we read them, there is also small black and white illustrations throughout the books by illustrator Serena Geddes, that also help bring out the humour in the stories.

These books remind me of the Dork Diary books in the way they are written and how they cover what happens in their daily lives in a funny way, however this series is aimed at a younger audience than the Dork Diaries books.

This is a great series for children aged 7-9 years old and for £5.99 for 4 books with Books2doors it is an amazing deal and so worth the money. My girls have given these books a thumbs up. You can order it here https://www.books2door.com/the-fabulous-diary-of-persephone-pinchgut-totally-twins.html

Spy Danger by Justin Davis – Book Review

We have been reviewing Spy Danger the follow on book from Escape from Nettle Farm by Justin Davis.

Spy Danger is about the adventures of the Baker family when they go for a weekend stay at Castle Arden. The Baker children Millie, Jamie, Zach and their Dog Harvey uncover a plot to steal the forgotten treasure that is hidden in the castle.They become real spy’s and have to decode the clues and try to outwit the thieves.

My girls enjoyed reading this book, it is a wonderful adventure story with drama and excitement. Although it is a follow on from Escape from Nettle Farm you could read this book on its own and still understand the story, however both books are a good read so it would be worth reading them as a series.

It is a great book for any children that love adventure, clues and spying. It is perfect for young readers and has detailed sketched drawings throughout the book to bring the story to life. It is a good length to keep them going for a while and it is easy to read and follow the story. My 7 year old was able to read the story herself.
