Ordinary Basil is an indomitable character who gives up at nothing and here sets off on another action-packed adventure to put the world to rights along with her erstwhile friend, Louise. Basil’s fantastic journey will spark the imaginations of readers young and old. The first Ordinary Basil title – The Extraordinary Adventures of Ordinary Basil has been one of our most popular titles so far.

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

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

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.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
