Book Worm Rating ~ June
Posted by Lora Veleva
Hey, world! I’m Lora and these are my blog series – the “Book Worm Rating” in which I show you three of the books I’ve read each month + a book review and some of my “smart thoughts”. 😀 I’m so sorry for not posting the May edition but I was very busy. I had final exams and a lot end of year tests. It was a horrible month so I had to study a lot. Anyway, I am ready with the Book Worm Rating for June. Let’s start!
1. “Demon Dentist” – David Walliams
This is the first book, written by David Walliams that I’ve ever read and it was just fantastic. It reminds me of Roald Dahl’s writing style. Combining sad, exciting and funny moments, this book tells the story of 12-year-old Alfie who lives alone with his Dad after his mother died in childbirth.
Alfie hasn’t been to the dentist since he was six. And I can’t blame him considering his ancient dentist diagnosed a rotten tooth, tied dental floss around the nurse Mrs Prigg’s waist, the other end around Alfie’s poor tooth… and then… jump out of the window! The result – his dentist had taken out the wrong tooth.
But the real evil hasn’t come to town yet… or that’s what Alfie thought. Miss Root a.k.a THE EVIL DENTIST comes to Alfie’s school to give a talk about teeth! “She has the most dazzling white smile. Whiter than white.”, says David Walliams in his book. “The second thing you noticed about Miss Root was that she was impossibly tall. Her legs were so long and thin, it was like watching someone walk on stilts…” These are the two most important things about her… except the red blood splash on her white shoe which is frightening, I can say.
Meanwhile, strange things were happening in the dead of night. Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find… a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow. Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it…?
Alfie and his friend Gabz will solve this case and find out who does all these evil things to the children in their town. Is it Miss Root – the evil dentist? You will know if you read the book…
2. “Five-minute Mysteries” – Ken Weber
I am a great fan of criminal books. My favourite author is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I’m just in love with his well-known character Sherlock Holmes. As a lover of exciting criminal books, I have searched a lot of these in book shops and libraries in different Bulgarian cities. But I have never ever heard of the author Ken Weber. I found his “Five-minute Mysteries” at a book festival, so I got it for like 1$ or something… The book shows 40 short mysteries that you have to solve. There’s a question after every case.
“The perfect book for when you have a few minutes to kill. The stories – some about the crime, some about evidence left behind, or perhaps the getaway or the investigating detective, and so on – are told with all the clues you need to solve the question posed at the end.”
This book is really a thing you should own because you can learn a lot from it and train your logical thinking.
3. “It Can’t Be True!” – Dorling Kindersley Limited
“It Can’t Be True!” is more like an encyclopedia than a book. It wows the reader with impressive facts about the world that are all difficult to believe, but still true.
“From animals and the human body to buildings and outer space, this quirky book combines the latest CGI and photographic imagery with impossible-to-believe, accurate facts about just about everything.”
This is a great new book that compares two things visually so the reader can get an idea of the relative size. It contains awesome images and mind-blowing facts. I was really impressed by this book.
This was June’s “Book Worm Rating”. I hope you liked it a lot. I recommend these three books to all of you because they’re totally amazing by their own way. If you have read or planning to read one of them, leave me a comment with your opinion about the book. Go check out “My Reading Spot!” for more bookish stuff. Bye, guys! ❤ xoxo, Lora
