The Lovereading4Kids comment

Full of laugh-out-loud moments - the defeat of bullies, unlikely friendships, peer pressure and the daily nightmare that is the school corridor all coupled with hilarious illustrations, it is the perfect series for readers who enjoy the Barry Loser, Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries books. In this, the third in the series, Nick and Molly must save their friend Karl from himself by outwitting a poodle, getting a monkey to babysit and solve the mystery of the missing plunger.

Some of our readers were lucky enough to review the first in the Odd Squad series, Bully's a taster...'If you like Tom Gates and ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ style books you will love this book. It's a hilarious book about a small boy who gets stuffed into a locker and his two funny friends!'

Nick, Molly, and Karl have nowhere to turn but to each other in the latest Odd Squad adventure, and they'll need every ounce of wit, resourcefulness, and help they can get in order to rise above their biggest challenge yet.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
