The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig by Emer Stamp

Title: The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig

Recommended Age: 7-12
Rating: 3.9

WARNING: Crude humor protocol level 2:
Fart/Poop jokes.
Adults will be offended

Stretching the physical boundaries of time and space, The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig brings out the child's innocent desire to save animals as Pig goes there and back again to not get eaten by the Farmer (or catapulted into oblivion by the chickens). A very funny and entertaining book if you have a somewhat irreverent mind, because beware, the book is filled to the brim with poo and farts to keep your little devils laughing it up.

This book explores the blissful ignorance of the animals and the misunderstandings they might have, which, of course, has to be hilarious. This book is a must-have for every little kid who loves animals and particularly enjoys their lack of proper human intelligence.

Candy Fairies: Cool Mint by Helen Perelman

Title: Candy Fairies: Cool Mint
Author: Helen Perelman
Publisher: Simon & Schuster / Aladdin

Rating: 5 Hearts

The Candy Faries: Cool Mint is an easy book to read. I like it because it has funny ways of saying things are good, such as "so mint", "Choc-o-rific", and so on. The main character is a small mint fairy who has a sled and wants to race it. Like I said the book is an easy book with no hard words, so this is a good book to practice reading on if somebody in your family is just learning. The book is a fun book with many different Candy lands. Pretty cool, right? They grow mint and other candies and it is a great book and I can't wait to read the next one!
