Guinness World Records 2021
The latest version of the world’s best-selling annual is finally here! Packed with thousands of incredible new feats, freaky photographs and remarkable achievements, it will blow your mind! Plus, this year, there’s a new section all about the history of adventure and exploration, and another one dedicated to the world of gaming! With fun try-at-home challenges, YOU can take part in the action, too. Awesome!
The Boy and the Tree by Marleen Lammers and Anja Stoeckigt (illustrations)
This is about a boy who only has a stuﬀed panda to play with and wishes he had shiny new toys like the other kids at school. He meets a tree. The tree tells him it can turn into anything. It takes him into space and on a pirate adventure. In the end the boy has so much fun, he falls asleep and is happy. I’d give this book 10/10. I think younger kids will also like it if someone reads it to them.

Middle School: How I Survived Bullies, Broccoli, and Snake Hill by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts
Rafe shares his experience at summer camp, where he learnt how to deal with bullies. My favourite scene was when Rafe’s friend Norman told Rafe about his abusive dad. Rafe can relate as he experienced almost the same with his mum’s boyfriends. I like this book because it teaches about bullying and the importance of helping each other. It also inspired me to read more, like Norman.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Mr Wonka owns and runs the Chocolate Factory. Charlie is a poor boy who only gets chocolate on his birthday. When Mr Wonka puts five golden tickets in his chocolates for lucky children to find, Charlie gets the last ticket! He takes his grandpa George with him for his prize, a strange but fascinating tour through the factory which changes his life forever. The story made me feel happy and excited. It made me wish I could have been there.
