Find out how to slam dunk a basketball, how to build a basic raft, how to write in secret code, how to find water in the desert, how to do an Ollie on your skateboard, how to work out which way is north without a compass, how to fly a helicopter, how to win at conkers, how to tie essential knots, how to take a penalty kick and how to build a campfire,

About the Author

Guy Macdonald was born in 1972. He grew up in a rambling old house surrounded by huge yew trees that he became very good at climbing. Across the fields was a river where he fished with string from a bamboo cane and made campfires. His greatest achievements of all time are: ripping a telephone directory in half, holding his breath for nearly two minutes underwater and whistling through a blade of grass. He has also co-written a series of children's fiction books called An Awfully Beastly Business about a werewolf boy who climbs trees, makes campfires and, given the chance, could almost certainly fold a single piece of paper at least seven times

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

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

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.

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.
