#Repost from @milliebot_reads with @repostapp —- [·_·[] Pinny the Bowling Pin
By Leah Ward
4/5 stars

I received an advanced copy this book from the author, @leahwardauthor in exchange for an honest review.
This cute little book tells the story of Pinny, the bowling pin who wouldn’t fall. He begins to doubt his place in life after experiencing some bullying, but stays true to who he is.

The illustrations are great and while this book is short, it has a nice message. I think it encourages kids to express who they are. I also think it’s simple enough that children learning to read could practice with it. Cute and fun and definitely something different.

More thoughts on my blog, as well as a mini interview with Leah.

Everything’s Amazing (sort of) (Tom Gates)
Back to school, but it’s not all bad. Sports Day, the school fair and Tom’s birthday are all coming up. And even better, his awful big sister Delia won’t be at any of those events! On the downside, Granny Mavis is threatening to make his birthday cake - uh oh! But on the other hand, Mr Keen has asked Dogzombies to perform in front of the whole school! YEAH! Maybe they can even play at the school disco too. How can the term turn out any less than seriously amazing?

Excellent Excuses (Tom Gates)
No school for two whole weeks leaves Tom with heaps of time for the important things in life. Yeah! He can forget all about lessons and the irritating Marcus Meldrew, and save his energy for good stuff! Stuff like: inventing new ways to annoy his sister Delia. (So many). Band practice for the Dogzombies ” rock stars in the making! Watching TV and eating caramel wafers; eating caramel wafers and watching TV.
The Brilliant World of Tom Gates
“When my teacher, Mr Fullerman, doesnt have his BEADY EYES on me, I like to draw pictures and write stories about stuff ” like when we had the worst holiday ever (camping sucks), and when my parents came to school for parents evening (groan), and about how Marcus Meldrew is the most annoying boy in the world and how I dont want to sit next to him in class. All I want to do is get tickets to see the best band ever, DUDE3, when they come to town.
Genius Ideas (Mostly) (Tom Gates)
Seeing Delia without her sunglasses on is a BIG shock for Tom, but that’s nothing compared with the surprise that Dad has in store with his new-found fitness regime! He says he’s going to compete at the school Sports Day. Can you even imagine the horrendous shame that will bring? Meanwhile Tom, Derek and Norman are also busy with a training regime of their own - practising with Dogzombies to make sure they’re ready for the school talent show.
