Views on Pre-Publication books – straight from Children

Our Children’s Reader Review Panel is going from strength to strength and the panel members have been especially bus over the Christmas Holidays reviewing books that will be published in February. Judging from the reviews they have written two of their real favourites were Tape by Steven Camden where Aimee Sweet, age 13 said – ‘An outstanding book that has so many genres and stories twisted into one blinding story it is amazing…definitely a 5 star.’ And The Dark Inside by Rupert Walllis where Lewis Duckworth, age 12 said – ‘I personally think this novel is amazing, because it had me on the edge of my seat’.
