Reviews

If Orion Books had just found and published one of the lost Shakespeare plays...I would not have been more excited than when I learnt of the publication of 14 previously untranslated Asterix stories in a new book called ASTERIX AND THE CLASS ACT...Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames -- Giles Coren THE TIMES One of the most appealing features of the Asterix books is their ingenious, twisting plotlines, filled with scheming villains and hapless fools...Asterix and the Class Act might appeal more to Asterix diehards than to general fans

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

Erica Motoc, age 7

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

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 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.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
