Review: Tiny Timmy: Soccer Superstar

Tiny Timmy review by kidTitle: Tiny Timmy: Soccer Superstar

Author: Tim Cahill

Publisher: Scholastic

When I received this book to review, I realised straight away that it would be perfect for my nine-year-old brother – he’s a soccer player and he likes funny books. So I asked him (let’s call him Book Boy Junior aka BBJ) to read it, and this is what he thought of Tiny Timmy: Soccer Superstar.

“I thought this book was really exciting. Being a soccer player and lover I really enjoyed how Timmy was always improving his game, and I liked the descriptions of the game. The book was easy to read and really well set out.

“The book was also funny – one example was when Timmy was the orange boy and he was walking down the street with the bag of oranges but there was a hole in the bag. As he walked, a dog came behind him and ate all of the oranges!

“I read a lot of the book aloud to my mum, and she thought it was good, too.

“I would recommend this book for 7-9 year olds who like soccer.”

Thank you BBJ!

Review: Weirdo 3 (Extra Weird!)

review Weirdo 3 by Anh DoTitle: Weirdo 3 (Extra Weird!)

Author: Anh Do

Publisher: Scholastic Australia

Weir Do is back and this time he is weirder than ever! This time his dad is working on cool dance moves for the local talent quest while Weir is trying out for the school soccer team. As usual, everything is funny!

I thought this was a really good book aimed at ages 6+. It was funny and well-written for a book of this type. I’ve read the other two books in this series and they’ve all been really good. Weirdo 3 is an easy read with an easy-to-follow storyline. The books are really all about the jokes and #3 constantly kept me laughing.

I think you would like this book if you like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Captain Underpants and Eric Vale: Epic Fail.
