This is a weekly meme started by Mary Simms on the brilliant Book Craic blog.
To take part, the steps to follow are:
- Post a picture of a front cover of a middle-grade book which you have read and would recommend to others with details of the author, illustrator and publisher.
- Open the book to page 11 and share your favourite sentence.
- Write three words to describe the book
- Either share why you would recommend this book, or link to your review.
Author: Martin Howard
Illustrator: Chris Mould
Publisher: OUP Children’s Publishing
Favourite sentence from Page 11: “You’re all bird-people here on Winspan. Very interesting,” said the Professor.”
This book in three words: Hilarious, Cosmic, Adventure
There is nothing like humour to encourage young readers to enjoy a book, and this one from Martin Howard offers more laughs per page than anything I’ve read since …The Cosmic Atlas of Alfie Fleet. Read it, but just make sure you’re not drinking at the time, unless you enjoy the prospect of tea exploding from your nostrils!
