Book of the Month – January 2018


The Book of the Month for the month of January is ‘Roodica the Rude and the Famous Flea Trick’. This book has been recommended by Miss Kosar and will definitely appeal to lower school.

Long ago, when wolves and bears roamed the land, the Romans conquered Britain. But although they built fine houses and straight roads, not everyone liked the Romans. Lots of people fought back, and none more stubbornly than Queen Goodica’s youngest daughter Roodica the Rude! Goodreads

This book is very funny. I really enjoyed reading it. This is the first book that I have read by Margaret Ryan. I would definitely read another book by this author.

They’re performing A Christmas Carol and for one extremely worrying moment, the irrepressible Tracy thinks she might not even get to play one of the unnamed street urchins. But then she is cast in the main role. Can she manage to act grumpy, difficult and sulky enough to play Ebeneezer Scrooge? … As Tracy prepares for her big moment, Cam is the one helping her learn her lines. But all Tracy really wants to know is if her film-star mum will make it back from Hollywood in time to watch her in her starring role?

This hilarious and heartbreaking story from the bestselling, award-winning, Jacqueline Wilson, follows her most popular character through ups and downs, laughs and tears.
