PICTUREPEDIA: An Encyclopedia on Every Page
Reviewed by Romeo T. BGS
The Picturepedia is a book with anything you want to know. As the name suggests it’s full of pictures and has a system that’s split into groups making it easier to find things. It has different things to help you like life cycles, diagrams and timelines. My favourite part in the book was the universe/solar system because it shows some star clusters, galaxies and constellations. It shows what type of planet it is, either a rocky planet, gas giant or ice giant. Also showing how far the planet is from the sun, the planets diameter, how long the planet takes to orbit the sun and the number of moons.
I rate this book a 10/10.
People aged 7+ should read this.

Stella the Unstoppable is a good book for you if you like going on camp and being competitive. Stella loves winning. When Stella found out that there was a camp cup and a disco with pizza, Stella started to get really determined on winning that prize. The problem is that they ended up getting stuck in a cabin with Lizzie Lawless. Lizzie Lawless always makes mistakes which was bad because if they had her in their team they will never have a chance in winning the camp cup. It was a fun read.

The Floods is a chapter book series by Colin Thompson.
This book series is fictional.
The genre of the books is spooky and funny.
The main characters are the Flood Family.
The reason I like this novel series is because it has some things that I like, for example: comedy, spookiness, a bit of gore and some pictures.
I recommend this book series for children aged 9-16.

If you’re wanting to code a game and you don’t want to learn python for example: if you type “hello world” it puts hello world onto the screen and C++. I don’t even know so what I’m saying because these coding languages are hard. If you think they’re hard then this is the perfect book for you.
The book uses a programming language called Scratch (it also works with Scratch Jnr). Scratch is a program that uses drag and drop. It has eight tutorials, from easy to hard.
I recommend this book for anyone that wants to create a game but doesn’t want to learn those complicated programming languages.
This book is a definite 10/10 because I AM A COMPUTER FREAK!!!

The book I am reviewing is about four children, Lucy, Susan, Peter and Edmund who all meet the great Lion named Aslan and the wicked White Witch. Lucy, who is the youngest of the four children, meets a little Faun called Mr Tumnus who is a spy for the White Witch.
The plot of this book is about the four children traveling to Narnia through a magical wardrobe.

Together the four children must find the great lion Aslan, who must stop the wicked White Witch.
I recommend this book for Year Three to Year Nine.

Slime is a story about a boy in a wheelchair. His name is Ned. Where Ned lived was not the best place to live because the people he lived with absolutely hated children. Ned had a sister who was called Jemima. She was very naughty to her little brother because she would put spiders under his pillow and when he went to sleep, he would be terrified. He and his sister never really saw their parents because they had a fish shop down the street in his town. There is one ingredient this is in every single meal.... it’s called shoe fish. That is what his parents sold. One day Ned wanted to prank his sister so he collected jars of all kinds of things: gunk, wart soup, monkey sweat and many more. At night Ned went to the bath and put in all the gunk that he found and made...
I rate this book 8/10 and for ages 7 to 12.

The main idea of this book is Dog Man versus Petey the evil cat. Petey the evil cat got put into jail several times by Dog Man but he always found a way to escape.
One time when Petey escaped, he made a clone of himself but something went wrong and he made a little kitten instead. This kitten was named Little Petey aka Cat Kid. He wasn't evil at all and was good friends with Dog Man and Petey.
Petey the evil cat is trying to take over the world and Dog Man must stop him.
I enjoy the Dog Man graphic novels, however this was not my favorite one.
I rate this book 7 out of 10 and I think the recommended age is 7-12.
