A year 4 pupil fromÂ ETHELBERT ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOLÂ wrote this fantastic review of the junior fiction 2018 Summer Reading Challenge storyÂ Arlo, Mrs Ogg and the Dinosaur ZooÂ by Alice Hemming, and illustrated by Kathryn Durst on the Story Island Reviews site:
‘One of theÂ most heart-pounding momentsÂ in the book was at the rock pool as big as a swimming-pool. Ronnie was streaking on the rocks wearing pants that said Friday on them, even though it was Monday. Everyone was worried that he was going to jump in because this is where the Ichthyosaur lives and Ronnie canâ€™t swim. He jumped in and Arlo counted in his head to 3 butÂ he didnâ€™t come outâ€¦Â read the book to find out what happened next!!Â
If you like exciting, fun stories you should read it too.
MyÂ favourite partÂ of the book was when the class saw all of the Dinosaurs. There were lots of different dinosaurs and one of them ate Paigeâ€™s hairband!
MyÂ favourite characterÂ was Arlo because he wrote things in his note book that were funny and he was brave.’
