You're a Hero, Daley B! by Jon Blake

Daley B is full of questions. He doesn't know what sort of animal he is, where he should live, what he should eat or why he has such big feet. He decides to live in a tree and eat acorns, but he still doesn't know why his feet are so big. Then, one day, there is panic in the woodland. The wicked weasel Jazzy D is on her way - and she eats rabbits! But Daley B is unperturbed - and when Jazzy D attacks, he finally finds a use for his big feet and kicks her. He also finds out what he is - a hero.

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

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

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