The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bella and Ben find themselves having a most remarkable adventure when they discover that they are in the wrong book! First, they bump all over the pages in a very uncomfortable way. And what kind of a book is it anyway? Is it a counting book? or a comic book? Or a history book? Or is it a dark and scary book with a horrible monster in it? Ben and Bella need good readers to sort out their story and to set them straight! ~ Lovereading4kids


We're in the Wrong Book! by Richard Byrne

Ben and Bella love the pages of their book. So, when jumping from page to page, they suddenly find themselves in the wrong book altogether, they are most perplexed. For Ben, Bella, and readers the book ultimately propels them back into their own book! Phew! From award-winning Richard Byrne, author and illustrator of This Book Just Ate My Dog, shortlisted for the Children's Book Award, this is the second picture book to feature Ben and Bella.


'Richard Byrne's latest creation is a work of pure genius... Byrne has neatly shoehorned all the joy of reading into this brilliant book.' Whitby Gazette

'Totally engaging...' Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 12

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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 has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!
