Planet Omar: Accidental Trouble Magnet Reader Reviews

Planet Omar: Accidental Trouble Magnet

Ethan Watkin

Planet Omar is the story of a boy who starts a new school but gets bullied because of his religion. It's a sad story at first but it turns out well for Omar and the book has some funny bits that made me laugh.

Planet Omar is an interesting book which I think was funny and had a good storyline about a boy (Omar) who started a new school but had issues with bullies as he is Muslim.
Thankfully it all turns out ok in the end.
The book was a bit like Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
It's worth a read and I would give it 8/10.

Really funny and interesting book all about a boy called Omar who has lots of new things happening to him.

Planet Omar is about a boy called Omar and his life. He moves house and then he moves school. He is afraid of the new school and he makes a new friend but there's a mean bully in his class. Omar is a Muslim and I really liked learning all about Muslim things because it was really interesting and sounded fun. This book was really interesting and Omar was funny. I loved that he had a brilliant imagination and his imaginary dragon called H2O! The best bit was the party for Eid and I liked that Omar was so excited! The different writing and the pictures made the book fun to read. I think everyone would like reading this book. 4/5

If you like hilarious books and you are fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Tom Gates this is the book for you. About a boy with a super imagination, whose moving house and trying to settle into a new school with a big bully always right behind him. This book shows people who think they are different from everybody else and that it is ok.

This book is about a boy, who is going to move house and is trying to settle into his new school, with a big bully right behind him every where he goes and he is also a Muslim. This book is for anybody who thinks they are different from everybody else, so when these people read it they will find out that it dose not matter. What I liked about it, was that Omar had a great imagination and he is super funny and as the blurb said snot will come out of your nose it is so funny.


This is a great book because you feel like you are in it with the characters.

I like this book because it is very imaginative and is good for people like me because some of the pages are really short and some of the pages have good and big pictures and it also has crazy writing so you can enjoy and imagine that you're in the story. I also like this story because it is fun and happy which makes it a really really good book. The characters that I liked were Omar obviously because he was funny, caring for Daniel when he was crying when they got lost. I also liked Daniel (when he was nice) and lastly Charlie because he was a really nice boy and was also really kind as well.



I like this book because it has lots of funny moments and some great facts.

This is a good book by Zanib Mian it's filled with lots of funny moments and facts too. For me it was one of the best books that I have ever had in my life.

10/10 great read for boys and girls. Planet Omar is a book about being different, growing friendships and overcoming hurdles. I loved the book and couldn’t read it quick enough. I just needed to know what happened next.

I really really enjoyed this book! Omar is a great character who doesn’t have the easiest of times.

I loved how Omar overcomes being different and I think that it is a great book for anyone, boy or girl who are going through any issues with bullying or feeling different.

The book taught me lots of new things about different cultures and it has left me wanting to know more. I really hope there’s another Omar book to follow as I’ll definitely want to read it.

I give this book 10/10 and would say it’s suitable for boys and girls.
