Posted: August 20, 2010 in Student reviews

A couple more great reviews have come in from the literary folk in 7S3.  Thanks guys!

Monster Blood Tattoo- Foundling by D.M Cornish
Foundling is a very intriguing story about a boy that is an orphan. He gets hired to work as a lamplighter, but the way is fraught with danger and he has some help from friends he meets along the way. If you are looking for an adventure story this will be your type of book.

A Rose for the Anzac Boys by Jackie French.
Capturing the life of three young women.  War is on and Midge Macpherson is at school learning to be a young lady.  But war is coming closer: Midge’s brothers are in the army, Tim listed as ‘missing’.  To avoid the boredom of school, Midge, Ethel and Anne start a canteen in France, caring for the wounded soldiers.  Midge is thrust into scenes of courage she could never imagine. When the war is over, all three girls discover that going ‘home’ can be strange.

Don’t Call Me Ishmael by Michael Gerard Bauer is possibly one of the funniest books I have ever read. It puts a kid who doesn’t fit in together with a whole bunch of social misfits and puts them into a wide range of wacky situations. It shows how a “nerd” can take down a “bully” anytime, even if he has had a brain tumour removed. This is an overall great book and I highly recommend it
