Mirabelle And The Magical Mayhem – Harriet Muncaster ★★★★

Blurb; Mirabelle doesn’t mean to cause trouble, it just seems to follow her round. But when she and her brother go to stay at their fairy grandparents she is determined that nothing will go wrong, and she is going to be on her very best, most fairy-like, behaviour.

But being good all the time is really tiring. And a little bit of mess leads to a little bit of secret witch magic, which leads to even more mess, and even more magic, until everything is in total chaos! Can Mirabelle get the mayhem under control before Granny finds out?

My Review; Here we are again. Another series I love, can all be read as standalones. Perfect for young girls. Beautifully illustrated throughout. Just over 100 pages. We al know Mirabelle always causes mischief where ever she ends up. In this story we go with her and her brother to her nan and grandads for a sleepover, surely she will behave for them won’t she? Wrong. A brilliant story. Highly recommend. A well desered four stars.

Rudy And The Monster At School- Paul Westmoreland ★★★★

Blurb; With boundless energy and an impulsive nature, Rudy is always ready to follow the scent of adventure! And with his loyal pack of friends by his side there’s nothing he can’t achieve. There’s a new boy in Rudy’s school called Frankie, and everyone says he is SCARY. Which is really saying something, as Rudy’s class is full of ghosts and ghouls, and his teacher is a vampire. But when Frankie gets upset and runs away, Rudy knows he has to help him. The trouble is, Rudy’s wolf senses lead him towards the really spooky castle on the hill. Is Rudy …

My Review; Another brilliant Childrens book at just over 100 pages. Beautifully illustrated throughout. In this story there is a new guy at school but it soon becomes apparent he is not settling into the school well. Being bullied and left out. Rudy decides to change that, to make friends and help him. But will this new guy be friendly? Is he really a monster? Big? Scary? A brilliant story that highlights just how much bullying can hurt someone. It’s not nice. Perfect for younger readers. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars.
