Book review: Monty and Milli: the totally amazing magic trick

2013-01-20 009By Tracey Corderoy and Tim Warnes. Review by the Bug, aged 5.

"Monty and Milli - a book review"

My brother is not one for practising his writing. But he has recently acquired the ability to read, and can be found most mornings, long before M&D’s alarm goes off, poring over his books. Even the promise of pain au chocolat elicits a groan of disobedience when he is asked to abandon his literature in favour of dressing and coming down for breakfast.

Perhaps this new-found ability accounts for his urge to review Monty and Milli. We’ve had The Totally Amazing Magic Trick hanging around for months, with a plan to review it, but before now it hasn’t been a priority on my brother’s list of things to do. He has been demanding Mummy’s attention all week with a desire to flex his pencil. Let me translate:

Milli always copies Monty and it makes him cross.

I like Milli because she is funny.

My favourite part was when Milli was hiding under the table and pretended to be a warty toad.

Blank – ie. I wouldn’t change anything about this book.

That just about covers it, from the Bug’s point of view, but if you want to see a more in-depth review, head over to Mini Bookworms for the full lowdown :)

  1. That’s really sweet. It can be so hard to get them interested in reading and writing, especially boys. That’s a book I’ll remember for next year :)

    We love to get out but I’m not fond of the cold so I need coaxing in this weather. When we did get sledging we all had a great time and the fire and fleecy blanket, just like you, was very welcoming after.

    It is always good to get children interested in reading, as this can open lots of doors for them.

    What a beautiful review. He has such gorgeous writing, I love it when they write so phonetically “beecos” it shows they understand but they haven’t yet learnt the madness of the English language. A review to treasure.
