Over the weekend I managed to finish the book I'd been reading and read two short books as well. So I thought I'd do a bit of a book review post.
Title: The Happy Prince And Other Stories
Author: Oscar Wilde
Synopsis: A collection of four of Oscar Wilde's stories... "The Happy Prince" "The Young King" "The Devoted Friend" and "The Model Millionaire."
My opinion: It was a great book. The only story I actually recognised was "The Happy Prince" and that was from an almost forgotten mentioning by my brother. Anyway, I enjoyed all four stories. They may be difficult for people not familiar with the words of "Old English" to read and understand though.
Title: The Diary Of A Killer Cat
Author: Anne Fine
Synopsis: The diary of a cat who gets in all sorts of trouble just for being a typical cat.
My opinion: An amusing little book. Don't be put off by the title. It's not as deep and dark as it sounds. And - though there's the odd "not as nice as it could be" type of statement - it's not really graphic. It's just an amusing little book for children and the young at heart.
Title: The True Story Of The Three Little Pigs
Author: A Wolf (as told to Jon Scieszka)
Synopsis: Alexander T Wolf's side of the story of the three little pigs... It all starts with a headcold and a birthday cake for a beloved Granny.
My opinion: A very amusing version of the story. Definately good for a chuckle!
For anyone interested, I thought I'd post a list of the books I've got that are waiting to be read or listened to.

I think I got all the ones I haven't read yet listed... I could be wrong though. *Shrugs*
