Books Chocolate and Wine (gums)!

We want to encourage kids reading and so thought having kids reviewing and recommending books would be a fantastic addition to the site and so have decided to open this section out to all kids. All they need to do is email in their review to with their name age and the title and author’s name of the book they are reviewing and we will post it on the site. Please pass this on to any children you think may be interested.

Secret of the Tomb; The Dragon Path by Helen Moss

Reviewed By Rory

(10 year old child reviewer)


When Ryan and Cleo visit Cleo's Grandmother she hands something over to Cleo.  Cleo is told to return this item back to the 'Dragon Path' located in China.  However this isn't and easy task as Cleo and Ryan come face to face with terracotta warriors and fire-breathing dragons.

This is an amazing follow up to the Pheonix Code written by Helen Moss, if you liked the first book you will love The Dragon Path.  Once again this book is a great length and 327 pages long.  I loved this book and could not put it down, there is never a boring part in the whole book.  This is my favourite series of books.

I did prefer the first book a tiny bit more so I am going to give this one 4.5 out of 5 but I cannot wait to read the next one.



Secret of the Tombs (The Phoenix Code 1) by  Helen Moss


Secret of the Tombs – The Phoenix Code 1 is written by the author Helen Moss and is a children's book about two kids, Ryan and Cleo who are on a dangerous quest to solve the ‘Phoenix Code’. Will they find the ‘Benben Stone’ before their enemies do? Or will Cleo and Ryan’s enemy get hold of the stone in time for the return of the phoenix?

Since I read the first page of this book my eyes have been glued to the paper. I loved the style of the book and it was written in a way that didn’t let me let it go. I am itching to read the second book. The length of this book is perfect at just over 300 pages. I recommend this book for readers age 9-13. 5 out of 5 stars.


The Christmas Present by Alexander McCabe


The Christmas Present written by Alexander McCabe is a book with a hidden message in it.  Did you know that there is an elf that watches you all the time and your elf has the same name as yours?  Gabriel doesn't believe in Santa in it's up to Rudolph and Gabriel the elf to teach Gabriel that Santa is real.

This is the perfect bedtime story while you are counting down the days until Christmas.  It is perfect for children between 4 and 10 years old.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish and I think you will too.  5 out of 5 stars.
