This blog contains reviews and comments on children's books which I own, have read, and would like to share. I look for books at markets and opportunity shops. They are cleaned up, covered and read. Then I take them to the classroom for students to read. Students can borrow the books at any time. Many books are also from my personal library, especially the Youth Fiction. Students can preview some of them on this blog. Now, I am also on the lookout for great new releases for my grandson Archie.

The Cricket Term by Antonia Forest
Antonia Forest, the author's real name was, wait for it, Patricia Giulia Caulfield Kate Rubenstein. She said of herself that she was "middle-aged, narrow-minded and anti-progressive and proud of it." Now that has to make you wonder what this book is like. I do know it is out of publication and not cheap to buy if you want a copy.
