Wait! product reviews

For the Grown Ups:

"Wait! Just Wait!"
You find yourself saying this all the time, right?

Well, We're sorry, but you're gonna hate this book!

This book is going to make you wait too. Once you and the kids start reading it, you can't do anything else until it's finished.

You'll just have to....... wait.

And the kids will love it!

Both girls had exactly the same reaction when they saw this book and basically both said the same thing 'yay I love this book wait I have not read this book but I love it'. I later found out that this is the forth book from the same writers and it is such a hit at the Primary school that they go too. I asked them how they knew it was the same book and they both said it has the same look (can't argue with logic). They both sat down and read it from start to finish, the difference being my eldest read to herself where as my youngest read to me. I have to say I was really impressed with her reading only six and managed to read the whole story besides getting stuck on only three words.

Reading the premise for the book I had assumed it was going to be like 'There is a monster at the end of this book' where as Grover tries to stop you from turning the page. Instead this book is about having to finish the book before you can do anything else. Basically you could be doing 101 things besides reading this book like 'giving a polar beer a cuddle, going outside to play or going to the moon' or even pretending that you did not start reading the book to begin with. I did like the moral of the story of needing to finish what you started. Each page has zany writing, coloured paper or pictures on it so it does keep you entertained.

It does have some fun activities to try like rubbing your tummy while patting your heads at the same time or curling your tongue or wiggling your third toe without moving any other toes (this is impossible) we were laughing quite a bit attempting to do everything but I did find the book rather tedious and drawn out. It could of been so much better than what it was. Both girls said they loved it but I have noticed it has been sitting on the same table for a week now and neither have picked it up since. I did pick it up the other day and start to read it again and then I had to get up and turn the dinner off and my daughter told me off as I had to finish the book because I had started it.

I think this book is great for my girls age levels so under tens would most benefit from it. It did cause a lot of laughter and great for someone who is learning how to read. I am not sure how much use it would get but I am guessing when school goes back that it will be making a visit to the different classrooms as they both of said there friends would enjoy.

Product reviews for listing 3632: Nightfall
Written by Will Elliott

Product image for NightfallAden awakens naked in a bath tub, knowing only that he is dead. His new world is Nightfall, a place filled with characters bizarre, grotesque and magical: Julius the duke, the monstrous Gorr family, the goddess Muse, Slythe the deadly assassin. On the night Aden awakens, the Forgetting closes in, erasing everything it touches. Aden has little time to discover why this world and its characters seem so familiar to him, and why they call his ... more...
