The Chocolate Factory Ghost by David O'Connell


Archie McBudge knows his lucky underpants must really work because when he and his mum are summoned to Honeystone Hall in the remote Scottish village of Dundoodle, they find Archie has inherited not only the enormous hall, but the whole of the world-famous McBudge Confectionery Company from Great-Uncle Archibald. That's a new home, a fortune and a lifetime's supply of treats rolled into one! But all is not well in Dundoodle, and when Archie reads the mysterious letter his great-uncle left him he finds himself on a quest to save his family's company from ruin. With the help of his new friends Fliss and Billy, Archie has to try to figure out the puzzles of Honeystone before his sweet future melts away like an ice lolly in the sun!


I loved this book from start to finish and couldn't put it down - it's full of weird clues, strange creatures, malevolent relatives and lots and lots of SWEETS!

Real-life Mysteries by Susan Martineau & Vicky Barker

Have you ever wondered what exactly does go bump in the night? From mysteries like Shackleton’s ghostly companion to the Loch Ness Monster and friends, read the amazing evidence about these mysterious cases and make up your own mind. Things are not always what they seem - until they are, then you might wish you had never asked!

I really enjoyed reading about all the strange things that have been going on around the world. My favourite was the mystery of the missing lighthouse men. What will your favourite be?

Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne

Four people go to the park, and through their eyes we see four different stories about what took place there. There's the bossy woman, the sad man, the lonely boy and the young girl whose warmth touches them all. As the story moves from one voice to another, their perspectives are reflected in the shifting landscapes and seasons.

I really enjoyed reading the different perspectives in this story, and then trying to connect them all together to find the relationships between the characters!
