Today's Book in Every Stocking suggestion comes from one of our child reviewers eight year old Spike.
Dear Father Christmas,
I've been thinking very hard about a book which would be good for you to put in other children's stockings. I think that you should give Cakes in Space by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre as it is very very funny!
Cakes in Space, is about a girl called Astra. Astra and her family are asleep in pods, on their journey through space to Nova Moody. Astra wakes up and is hungry so she goes to Nom O Tron 500 and ask for a asks for a Ultimate Scary Cake, and that exactly what she gets. The Cakes are alive, the grow hands, they grow leg and sprout teeth and begin to talk and try to eat anything that’s moving including Astra and the Poglets. Poglets are funny aliens that worship spoon, and steel but od Astra’s ship look for more spoons! Astra and Pilbeam her trusted friend the robot, find a new friend that looks like oily spaghetti called The nameless Horror! Together Astra, and Pilbeam and The Nameless Horror, save the day!
This is a funny book and it is exciting and is full of really great illustrations!
Dear FC please bring me lots of books too as i read loads. Plus some batteries for my torch but don't tell my mum and Dad!
