Do you want to count backwards – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…BLAST OFF! Zooming around the Solar System in a rocket ship?
This book is written fully in dialogue and has mixed media artwork as the illustrations, both add a unique flavour to the book that makes it something special.
There was an amazing amount of laughter especially when catfish says “Just look what you’ve done…I’m meant to have whiskers and now I have none.” The group was concerned about the bubbling stew, were fascinated by the pirates and laughed hard when there was a bubble soaked pirate ship.
Wanted! Freaks of 4F!
Have your wits about you because these freaks antics are out of control! No one is safe, especially not Miss Corker who wants 4F to learn.
Do you dare read this book?

The newest two books in the Alphaprints range – Happy Dog & Quirky Bird are a wonderful addition to these touch-and-feel textured prints and fingerprint embossed pictures. These highly creative books are humorous, with pictures that are different to your average hardback book.
One of the first things I thought about when reading this book is that my mum is going to be horrified when she reads my review, she hates the F word…the Fart word…it is one of her least favourite words. But then I realised she also has a sense of humor and she might overlook her least favourite words…maybe.
If you haven’t chosen a book for your chapter book readers stocking yet then I suggest grabbing a copy of Terry Denton’s Wombat & Fox: The Whole Story. There will be lots of laughter and mayhem, and your young reader will not want to put it down (I know I didn’t want to).
It was my first time reading a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, I was so engrossed I read it within an hour. When I closed the book I declared that Jeff Kinney is the first person to get me to enjoy disastrous comedy, he is the Master of Disaster with a whole lot of laughter thrown in. Truth be told I normally avoid books where things go wrong all the time, however The Getaway was so funny, engaging and disaster filled that I couldn’t help but love it.
