I Just Ate My Friend! by Heidi McKinnon
Reviewed by Madeline D. APS In this book there was a little friendly monster and he just ate the best friend he’d ever had. He was walking around asking all the animals in the forest to be his friend and then one other little friendly monster and then a green little monster asked him to be friends. Then he got eaten by his new friend. My favourite part was when he got eaten by his friend. I recommend this book for Years Prep to Grade 2.

This & That by Mem Fox
Reviewed by Piers W. APS This book is about a mouse telling stories to a baby mouse. A story of a chimp with a magic hat and a story of this and a story of that.
