The Lovereading4Kids comment

Second in a great series that's full of warmth and wit for young children just starting on the reading road. Terrific adventures ensue at the Mammoth Academy. Chaotic and wacky, the mammoths are always getting themselves into all sorts of trouble and then there are the humans who are trying to cause trouble outside the school gates too.

Mammoth Academy 2 - In Trouble by Neal Layton

There's not much worse than having to go back to school after the holidays. Except perhaps if you return and there's graffiti all over the school. And then a flea epidemic! But at least they have the Founder's Feast to look forward to. Things are getting pretty hairy for the students of the Mammoth Academy. The heaviest snowfall in history means lots of hungry humans and soon the Academy is surrounded. How will they get out of this one?

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!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
