Brilliant Books!


I vividly remember not being able to put down a multitude of  books as a child. It was almost as though they were metallic and my hands were electromagnets… not hearing my mother calling me for dinner because I had my nose deeply buried in a book… thinking ‘just one more chapter’ before I went to sleep…

Have you ever been completely grabbed by a book? Engrossed to the point that, no matter how hard you try,  you can’t seem to be able to it down? Well then, tell us all about it. Post the book, author and (most importantly) why you loved the book.

    I love Charlie and the chocolate factory.
    First I saw the movie and then, when I read the book, I couldn’t stop reading it over and over again. I like Charlie and the chocolate factory because the Ompaloompas and Willy Wonka, are really funny and I like when the Ompaloompas sing, the different songs about, some children who got the golden tickets, to go inside the maravellous,gigantic factory.

    • What a fantastic review! Well done Ines. It’s one of my favorite children’s books too. Have you watched the original film or was it the newer version with Johnny Depp? I love the older one, but that’s probably because I watched it when I was a child and was enchanted.
      Thanks for your post Ines.

    I watched the newer version of Johnny Depp.

    • Well, later in the school year you will get chance to watch the older version and compare it to the book. Then you can decide which you prefer!
      Thanks Ines.
