Operation Code-Cracker by John Townsend

My name is Tyler and I am the official reviewer of John Townsend books at my school. as he is one of my favourite authors. I got Operation Code-Cracker to read over half-term and here is my review.

Firstly, I love the cover. It's really cool and shows there's going to be lots of action.

The story is very exciting. It's about a boy called Max and a mysterious group who are called the Silver Scorpions. Max ends up being a spy and getting into lots of trouble. Luckily he is really good at solving puzzles and this helps him. One of the things I like about John Townsend is how he puts puzzles and riddles into his books, although there were some in this one that I found too tricky to work out. But I did understand them when I saw the answers!

There is a very good surprise near the end and something happens that you just don't expect. Well I didn't expect it, so I don't think other people will. If you like exciting books full of action and puzzles then you should read this one. It is going in to our school library next week. I think lots of people will defnitely want to borrow it when they read this review.

9.2 out of 10

Choosing Crumble by Michael Rosen

The book I am reviewing is called Choosing Crumble by Michael Rosen. The pictures are quite plain but are very funny and they help tell the story.

The book is about Terri-Lee and her mum who go to a pet shop because they want a dog. They meet a dog called Apple Crumble, who isn't like any other dog because this dog can talk. He asks Terri-Lee some questions to see if she is good enough to become his owner.

I shared this book with my mum and dad, and we gave it nine out of ten because it is very funny indeed.
