Miss Five says "This book was really, really good. I enjoyed it because it was really fun to read. I liked the characters because the teacher Miss Baker was really nice. I liked Ella and Olivia because they were very cool and I liked Zoe too. Reading this book made me feel happy. I like the pictures and the page boarders. They are pretty. The book is about Ella and Olivia and Zoe selling chocolates for school. I needed some help with the words but I liked to read this by myself. I took it on holiday and read it in the car and in our chalet."

At 63 pages this book doesn't have a lot of words as most pages have lovely black and white drawings and the print is large. This is the first of this series that we have read and Miss Five and I think that they are good value. These are a great step from first readers and perfect for five year old girls and above.

Miss Five is really the best judge and she really likes reading this book so I have to give this the thumbs up and we will be checking out more of these books.

I was given the first two Ella and Olivia books to review. My daughter really enjoyed the The Cupcake Catashrophe so I thought she would love this too. She is turning four next week so I read it to her although a child with a seven year old reading age would be able to read it independently. She sat on my lap and listened intently as I read it. She didn't comment on the story as much as she did with the first book. We read it in one sitting, or what would have been one sitting if the phone hadn't rung in the middle of it. To me that was a true sign likes the book. She was had the book in her hand begging me to read more the moment I hung up the phone.

It is broken up into chapters so could be read in a few sessions. It is a first chapter book. There are illustrations on every double page and very large print. The language was simple enough for the intending reading age. I found that the plot would have been better suited to a school aged child because they would have had the prior knowledge to engage them in the story more. Things like fundraising and playing netball are things that my daughter hadn't experienced.

I can see my daughter and her younger sister asking me to read these books again and in a few years reading them to themselves. I will be looking for other books in the series when they come out and putting them away for presents.
