Reviews

An interesting and readable look at the opportunities sport offers Parents in Touch OLYMPIC gold medalist Christine Ohuruogu has joined up with writer Paul May to write a fiction for readers aged nine upwards. It tells the tale of Maxine who is crazy about sport and thrilled to be going to Camp Gold. She makes good friends and cute boys and discovers her hidden talent of running. Soon she is training for the Nationals and is watched by Olympic champions, but then as she prepares for a tough battle ahead, she becomes the victim of pranks and sabotage. Burnley Express [My daughter] was hooked by the excitement and suspense of the story, and I think she just genuinely liked it because it was about sports and something quite 'concrete' - a nice change from some of the more abstract books she reads about magical realms, etc Childtastic Reviews Blog

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.
