My big girl has really taken to reading. These days she is a regular bookworm – especially if the book has something to do with her favourite topic – spies! (Hellow EJ12). A couple of weeks back I was approached to review some children’s literatures/junior fiction and she decided she would love to give it a go.
Mr Agasvari Goes to school is a new book by Australian Author J.J Part. It’s reported to be an enchanting and entertaining read for children of all ages. So, in her own words this is what my junior book reviewer thought about it…..
I think this book is magical. I really liked the chapter called ’Lizzard Maths’ and wish we could do something like that at my school! I like what the book is based on – it made it easy to feel interested in it. Mr Agasvari is really nice and would be a great teacher. He sounds fun, happy and silly. I liked the part where he sniffed the boys lunches – that was really funny. The dog in the story is really nice too. I have a best friend that’s a dog. Some of the words are hard to understand at first, like lumberjacks and acquainted – it took my a while to know what they meant. I also thought the tree on the front cover looked quite scary when I started reading. But I like this book very much and will lend it to my friends to read too.
