Everyone is hooked on the hottest singing competition on TV, The NoroVision Choral Throwdown!

Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa are back in their third adventure from Jo Nesbo, the bestselling Norwegian author of all time!

"Fuelled by farts, this is fast-paced and a delightfully ridiculous adventure." Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

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!

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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
