The farmyard was his kingdom – he had made it so. This is the story of the nine loves of a very special cat, from impetuous young kitten to the king of the farmyard. Wherever Montezuma goes, adventure and excitement are sure to follow! An enchanting take of feline charm from War Horse author Michael Morpurgo. Greetings you guys! We’ve been a bit quiet on the review side for school. Not that the kids don’t still write the most lovely reviews, it’s just a matter of getting the time to post them! We will try to update as many as we can within the last couple of weeks of school. Michael Morpurgo is by far one of the most popular authors amongst the VCS students.

Library Card April 2022 & Weekend Book Friends #28

Library Card April 2022 & Weekend Book Friends #28

Greetings you guys! Where did March go? When I searched for my Library Card now, I’ve realized we never did a Library Card for March. Good grief! Our last one was for February. No idea how this happened. I am at least very proud to report back that we have completed our February Library Card with only one book that ended up being a DNF. April has quite a few public holidays coming up and we have quite a few books to get through so we are very grateful for the upcoming public holidays. My Mommy had Book Club on Wednesday night and she brought the follow books back for this month’s reading: Book Club The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper is actually still my Mommy’s book and it should go out of Book Club in July. She hasn’t read it yet though and we don’t want it to just disappear onto the shelf again. The Maid by Nita Prose is a brand new addition to the Club and yes, my Mommy called first deps. Very excited for this one due to all the brilliant reviews. The Island of Missing Trees by Elif Shafak finally came home with her. I do hope that […]
