Basil, Sybil and the staff have until the health inspector returns tomorrow to sort out all the problems. First, Basil has to get rid of Manuel's 'hamster'. Basil and Sybil have the weekend off in The Builders and leave Polly in charge. But it's O'Reilly's men that are coming and Polly goes upstairs for a siesta. Which leaves Manuel in charge...

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

Erica Motoc, age 7

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

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

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
