Review

I thought that this was a good book, it was a nice easy read and didn’t take long at all to get through- perfect for a quick read in the car or just before dinner.

I really liked that the book was dyslexia friendly, printed on tinted paper. I am not dyslexic but my uncle is and when he was younger there were no books like this at all so i was really pleased to see a book that had taken other readers into account.

I’m looking forward to sharing it with him.

I thought the story was engaging, short yes but definitely interesting.

Megan is a prolific reader, having been reading since she was just 1 years old, Megan is never without a book in her hand or her heart. At just 5 years old Megan challenged herself to read 365 books in a year but finished in just 10 months! She has always been keen to grow her library at home and is a frequent visitor to our local library. Megan may have read 365 books in 10 months when she was a pipsqueak 5 year old but she was reading every day before that and every day since! We estimate that she is well over the 2000 book mark and nothing is slowing her down yet! She is a keen supporter of literacy and authors alike. Now she is older she hopes to give her reading challenge a boost by reading at least twice as many books in a year. Megan generally reads several times a day and as her parents we are read out a lot of passages from books!! :-) Megan is a keen reviewer and has decided to share her journey through books with other book minded people. She is also a member of a chatterbooks group where she is given a book (or 3) to read and review for the next gathering. She is confident in her approach to what she has read, what she likes and dislikes, and she has no problem expressing those feelings with other booklovers.
