This is a bit on the late side for February, but here goes. H has been reading and rereading this month. He recently discovered the Wild Rescue books, which are basically adventures that involve rescuing wild animals. Ben and Zoe are twins who travel the world working for the top-secret organization: Wild. Wild is the brainchild of their godfather Dr. Fisher, who sends the children on high-risk global missions tosave rare animals in deadly danger. H liked the first one he read and asked for some more. I went a bit overboard and we ended up with H’s library ticket almost completely occupied with this series, which apparently was a bit much. That said he’s worked his way through quite a lot now and they are nice books for children who love animals.
There’s been quite a bit of rereading this month. As ever his Beano and Dandy annuals are proving popular. I think if anything H prefers The Dandy to The Beano, but it’s a close run thing. I keep my eye out for second-hand copies in charity shops and the like. The only thing is some of the older ones in particular, are often more highly priced because of collectors, but H just wants to enjoy reading them. He often giggles away as he is reading them.
Astrosaurs Earth Attack has been getting another outing. We don’t own many Astrosaurs books as we got most of them out of the library, but we do own this one, so it is often dipped into. H wishes Steve Cole would write a few more. If you haven’t come across them they are books that combine dinosaurs and space in an adventure format and they are perfect early chapter books.
The Dream Snatcher is a book I’ve got out of the library for H to try after reading Chantelle’s review of the follow-up book The Shadow Keeper last week. He hasn’t started yet, but I think I might give it a read too.
