We love to read. It’s great for expanding vocabulary and literacy. Jasmin has written another book review, here it is.
Hello my name is Jasmin and I’m 8 years old.I have been asked to write a review of “Katy” by Jacqueline Wilson.
The main characters are Katy, Izzie (Katy’s stepmum), Katy’s dad. One weekend they have a lady called Helen come to visit. Helen is in a wheelchair. They become good friends.
Could you tell us a little bit about the story?
A little bit about the story is that Katy broke her back and she was sad.
Where did the story take place?
The story took place in the town where Kate lives.
What did you think of the book?
The book was sad near the end.
I did not like it when Katy had an accident.
I would make the book better by having a happy ending.
What did you think of the cover?
I thought the cover was pretty because it is embossed and shiny.
Which character would you like to be and why?
I would like to be Katy because she is clever.
How long did it take you to read the book?
It took two nights to read this book.
Note from Mum: I think this book is written for older children (11+) as it needs a certain level of maturity to cope with the difficult themes in the story. Jacqueline Wilson writes at the end of the book, she wrote this book in response to the classic “What Katy Did” This classic book is now on our reading list.
We were sent this book to review by A Big Shot. These are our own views.
