Book Reviews

Book Review - 10-11 year olds

Author: David Walliams

ratburger|What was the Story about?

It was about a little girl called Zoe and her pet rat Armitage. Outside Zoe's school there was always a burger van owned by a man called Burt. Towards the end of the story, Zoe found out Burt made burgers out of rats.

Would You recommend this story to a friend? Why?

Yes I would definitely recommend this story to a friend because it is just so good to read and by the end of it they will probably be crying because the father and the daughter were hugging and they haven't done that in a long time.

This book made me laugh out loud so I would recommend it to a friend because it is hilarious. I love David Walliams books and can't wait to read Ratburger.
