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!

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

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.

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