The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Dyslexia Friendly Books of the Year 2013 - Interest Age 5-8+ Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman tells a laugh-out-load story in this babysitting tale with a difference. When Mike pops round to see his friends Alex he discovers that Alex is a Gris-kwok – he can turn into any animals he chooses. The trouble is, his sister Polly is one too. And Alex and Mike are babysitting Polly! One disaster follows another and Mike wonders whether everything will ever get back to normal!
Particularly suitable for 5-8s with reading age of 6+

My Friend's a Gris-Kwok by Malorie Blackman
Mike had no idea that his best friend Alex was a Gris-Kwok - he can turn into any living creature he chooses. But so can Alex's naughty little sister Polly, and it's not long before Mike and Alex are dealing with a whole heap of trouble! A hilarious and thrilling read.
