Lionboy by Zizou Corder

This is on our school reading list for year 6. Easy to read and good descriptions but a long book for not much to happen. My daughter got bored with it. Good plot but would be better if it was shorter.

Brilliant book. I couldn't put it down. Unusual plot. Recommended by school for year 6. Totally agree. Had problems getting hold of a copy and had to get it second hand. Going to buy the other books in the trilogy.

This book is on the year 6 school reading list. My daughter didn't like the title or the names of the characters so it was a struggle to get her to look at it. I thought it was a gentle read. It made me smile.

This was recommended by school for year 6. My 10 year old has been reading a chapter a night. She liked the story and the characters. It had some new words and covered their Victorian topic. I thought it was a bit slow in the middle. We'll buy the ne ...more

I could not put this book down. It was recommended by school for year 6 with the caveat that it has some mature content. My 10 year old thought it was awesome and has been reading the grisly bits out aloud to anyone who will listen. It has given us s ...more
