The Hunt for Ned Kelly (My Australian Story)
Reviewed by Acacia V. APS
Ned Kelly has been at the heart of the Australian lifestyle since he and his gang were tracked down in bushland by the Victorian police and came out fighting, dressed in iron armour. When someone went to shoot him, I thought it would reflect back. I love this book and think it is really cool for people who love history. I think people between the ages of 6-23 should read this.
I rate this book a 10/10.

This book is about Geronimo who is scared and everyone knows he is getting scared about everything by the second. He is scared about flying on a plane and other things so his family members took him on a plane and went to a camp. He was scared at the beginning but day by day he got rid of his fears.
I recommend this book for ages 7 to 11.
I rate this book a 10 out of 10.

The is book is about a girl called Nikki Maxwell. She goes through some tough stuff like being bullied and annoyed by a girl called Mackenzie. She enters an art competition. She is an awesome artist. She even convinced her friends, Zoey and Chloe to not go living in underground tunnels under the NYC library by bribing them with fake tattoos. Her friends made a picture of all the tattoos she had done for people and won the art competition! Mackenzie was extremely upset.
I rate this book 10/10.

Roald Dahl was a great author and one of the best of his books I have read is The Magic Finger. It’s about a girl, and her friend’s family. Her friends are called Philip and William Gregg. Their Dad and the boys go every morning to shoot birds and other precious wild life. The girl is against that stuff very much. They laugh at her. But, they don’t know the future and boy is it bad... I like this book because of the message - Don’t harm wild life!
I think this its for ages 10+ and I rate it 10 out of 10.

I give this book a ten out of ten.

This book is my favourite book of all time. I love it, but it is also confusing which makes me like it even more. It has mystery but it also has action and it has two main characters. I love this book because of the fantasy where they can go from the real world to Rondo using a box passed down for generations. I think this book is great. Fun fact: Jennifer Rowe is Emily Rodda’s real name.
Everyone needs to read it! I rate it 10/10
