Zombie Queen of Newbury High

Reviewed by Milly 14 yrs. old - Book Reviewer and Sometimes Baker
Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby is about a young girl called Mia who will do Anything for love. Including turn her schoolmates into Zombies.
Quiet, unpopular, Sci-fi fan Mia Everett was surprised when hot, footy player Rob Ziggerman asked her to the prom. But, despite the 6 dates to prove it was official, Samantha had to ruin things by wearing low cut tops, expensive shoes, being... well the most popular girl in school and trying to steal her boyfriend. What she didn't know is Mia is clever and has a best friend with connections.
Unfortunately, Mia didn't realise a harmless love spell could end up becoming a deadly spell called Viral Zombaticus which translates to Zombie Virus. Doing the spell turns her into the Zombie Queen. As fun as it is receiving food and having everyone bow down to her, her popularity is short lived as the new boy in her her class tells her being a Zombie Queen also means she's first on the menu. With the help of her hypochondriac best friend, Candice, and the mysterious new boy named Chase Miller (who also happens to be a Zombie hunter hottie), they must race against the clock to try and stop her classmates from turning into brainless flesh-eaters.
I rate this funny, Zombie, romance novel out of 5 paper dolls:
This week I have decide to cook something nice and easy:
Sweet Blue-chilli sauce
Blueberry Jam
Sweet Chilli Sauce
Small microwaveable bowl
Step1: fill half the bowl with Blueberry Jam.
Step2: add sweet chilli sauce (amount deepens on how hot you like it).
Step3: put bowl in microwave of approximately 10 sec. (or until warm).
Step4: stir and surve (great with seafood).
Who wouldn't love a Zombie story? If you're a fan of zombies and comedy put together, than I also recommend My Zombie dog by Charmaine Clancy. Ok, it's my mum's book, this is the trailer I made for My Zombie Dog:

Little Manfred

Reviewed By Tilly 10yr. old Book Reviewer and Sometimes Writer

We're back!

After moving from Yass to Brisbane, my sister and I have been busy settling into our new schools - which we LOVE! But I've missed my blog, and Milly has too, so here you go with our first review this year:

For today, I am going to review the book Little Manfred by Michael Morpurgo. Little Manfred is about a 12yr. old girl named Charley and the Manfreds in her life. Turns out to be a few.

Charley's mother, Grace, had a wooden toy dog she loved which she had named Little Manfred. Charley loved that toy too, so much that she named their real dog (a border collie, just like my dog, Zoe) Manfred. But when Charley and her 7yr. old brother meet a stranger on the beach, she discovers her mother has a past. 

Now Charley has lots of questions. Who is this Walter from Germany? Who was Little Manfred named after? And, who was Marty? But most of all - what happened to Manfred?

This book was really good, it's an easy read and I found out some things about the war. It's interesting and a little sad, but cheerful too. I can recommend Little Manfred. Even though it was a small chapter book, I did expect something more from the story. Not sure why. You might not have heard of this story before but you probably know another book Michael Morpurgo wrote:

This book is right next to my bed and I'm about to start reading it... hope I don't cry! I'll let you know what I think.

 Anyway, I rate Little Manfred this out of five paper dolls...

Today's paper doll is an army woman (read the book and you'll understand why):

And if you're curious, here's my border collie, Zoe. I love her lots!

And more on books with dogs, my mum's new book is out and you can buy it on Amazon. That's so cool! She says we can't review it because we're related :( but have a look at the trailer, I'm going to make one for it too.
