But one day a tiny sunbird thinks he looks so sad that he ventures to talk to him. Soon this unlikely pair are best of friends, so Gary is very upset when one day Ray doesn't show up as usual.

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.

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.
