      What I’m saying
I want you to know. These are actually the stories that comes from (well, the books came first) the TV show ‘Round the Twist’ if you’ve seen them or not. There not bad, I think, well, I use to like watching them, when I was in primary/high school (so awhile back)

I really liked these book when I was younger, mostly because they were all I could read. Since I was crap at that, these books were interesting and short enough to keep me entertained while I struggled to read them.
Saying this, these books are actually really easy to read, I just struggled ALOT!

They are the books that I recommend any young kids to read, and that’s not because he’s an Australian author, but they are really run and they made me laugh and enjoy something that I hated so much as I was struggling through school.

Anyway, this book still sits on my shelf waiting for the time when my kids are old enough to enjoy, first, me reading it to them, and then them reading it as well.
