9 year-old Isla tells us what she really thinks (spoiler alert: she really likes it!) about Look Out for the Fitzgerald Trouts, a new book about a band of kids that live together a on a tropical island.
What did you think, Isla?
This book has some really great characters. I think it's funny that Mr. Knuckles sort of speaks like a caveman. I really thought it was hilarious when Pippa said, "Your lyin' heart will tear us apart and make me fart!" I think Penny looks really cute. I liked it a lot when Tina and Clive got bit by all those blood-sucking iguanas. I also liked this part: "One's biting his ear!" (I think that's Tina)
There weren't really any parts I didn't like about the book. I might have not liked a few bits, but most of the book I definitely enjoyed (partly because I'm a "bookworm").
Do you recommend it?
I think other kids would definitely like this book. It has action, scary parts, and hilarious parts. I think the emotions they might feel by reading it would be excited, surprised, and happy.
If I were to choose how good this book was on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it an 8.
Pretty good score, if you ask us! So maybe grab a copy and add it to your summer reading list?
