Pawsome Book Club: Dear Olly by Michael Morpurgo

WARNING: MAY CAUSE HYSTERICAL CRYING

Hey there pawsome peeps! Long time no see…

This post is going to be another book review for a different book that I read for the BFR. If you read the warning above, then you will know that this book is very emotional! Anyway, the book that I have chosen for today is called…Dear Olly by Michael Morpurgo! FYI, Michael Morpurgo is an award-winning author! This story is told by three voices and I had tears in my eyes whilst I was reading it!

The main characters in this book are called Olly, Matt and Hero (a swallow). Olly is waiting for her brother, Matt, to come back home as she watches the swallows leaving for Africa. When Hero the scarlet-ringed swallow journeys to where his companions are, he has to dodge numerous obstacles. And Matt could never have imagined what was going to happen to him at the African orphanage. Will he be able to travel back to England, his home country?

I am going to stop right there! I don’t want to go too far! This book is a truly soul-gripping tale. I would recommend it to people who are into thrills, family and love. It is definitely a must-read. That’s why I’m rating it…4 stars!! There is just one thing I would change about it. I personally think that it would be better if it was written in the first person. But overall, it was an excellent book! If you would like to get your hands on this book, visit your local library today to read it!

Wow! Is that the time already? I’m afraid I’m going to have to say goodbye pawsome peeps! But don’t worry, I’m just around the corner! Look out for more book reviews from my Pawsome Book Club and see you soon!

A Piece of Cake: The Box in the Window-Part 8!

Ghostly greetings everybody! Whoo! Today, the next soul-gripping part of my story will be uncovered. What do you think will happen when Maria, Benjamin and Elizabeth meet face to face with Acantha?

“A Piece of Cake-The Box in the Window-Part 8”

room

Furniture began to break. Walls were literally being torn apart. Windows were smashed and the glass splintered on the floor.

Suddenly, Elizabeth was lifted off her feet and flung to the other side of the room into a ruined wall. She bounced off and fell onto a broken table. Then she flew up once again and circled round the room, crashing into whatever was in her way.

“HELP ME!!! MUM! BENJAMIN!!! ARRRGGHHH!!!” she screamed. “PLEASE!! HELP!!!!”

Elizabeth was thrown into a small corner. She lay still, bursting with tears. Acantha’s scream then turned into an evil cackle, similar to what a hyena would sound like.

He bellowed, “HAHAHA!!! You really think that I’ll spare you? You’re wrong! HAHAHAHAHA! I’ll  do what I did to the others!!! I’ll lock you up in a place where you can never see the light of day again! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

“Who are the others?!” shouted Benjamin.

HAHAHAHA!!!

“Tell me!” Benjamin commanded.

NO!! HAHAHA!!!

light

There was a flash of light and then, silence. Silence. Not a sound to be heard. Elizabeth had stopped crying but Maria was still comforting her.

“Benjamin, there’s something wrong.” said Maria, panting like a dog.

“Mum, I want to go home!” Elizabeth whined. “I want to leave!”

“OK, OK,” Maria replied. “But just one thing. Where is home?”

fog

She stared into the thick, grey fog surrounding them. Their voices echoed out into the greyness.
