The Lovereading4Kids comment

Games galore! This time it is Great Insect Games. Ambrose is determined to win a shiny gold medal. He has practiced a lot but will he ever be able to beat the others? The first event is the Long Jump. Ambrose tries but the grasshopper can jump a lot further than anyone else. Ambrose isn't any more successful in the running race or the bug eating race. But, at last, when all hope is fading, Ambrose finds he can be best of all!

Synopsis

Ambrose Goes For Gold by Tor Freeman

Three cheers for Ambrose! It's the day of the Great Insect Games and Ambrose is desperate to win a gold medal - he's been practising very hard! But when the grasshopper jumps further and the pond skater skates faster, it looks as though Ambrose will never win anything... But with a little determination and the help of his friends, Ambrose soon discovers that everyone is good at something.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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

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