A year 4 pupil from ETHELBERT ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL wrote this fantastic review of the junior fiction 2018 Summer Reading Challenge story Arlo, Mrs Ogg and the Dinosaur Zoo by Alice Hemming, and illustrated by Kathryn Durst on the Story Island Reviews site:
‘One of the most heart-pounding moments in the book was at the rock pool as big as a swimming-pool. Ronnie was streaking on the rocks wearing pants that said Friday on them, even though it was Monday. Everyone was worried that he was going to jump in because this is where the Ichthyosaur lives and Ronnie can’t swim. He jumped in and Arlo counted in his head to 3 but he didn’t come out… read the book to find out what happened next!!
If you like exciting, fun stories you should read it too.
My favourite part of the book was when the class saw all of the Dinosaurs. There were lots of different dinosaurs and one of them ate Paige’s hairband!
My favourite character was Arlo because he wrote things in his note book that were funny and he was brave.’
