Synopsis

Noko and the Night Monster by Fiona Moodie

Takudu the Aardvark and Noko the Porcupine live at the foot of the Mbombo hills. They have a good life, spending their days cooking soup, making up songs and drinking marula berry juice. But every night, Takudu shakes and shivers because he's afraid of the NIGHT MONSTER, and Noko has to read him the wool prices from the Farmer's Weekly until he falls asleep. So one morning Noko sets out on a quest to cure Takudu of his fear...Offbeat, colourful and a lot of fun, this is a humorous and warming tale featuring two wacky, loveable and endearing characters.

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on 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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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