Review Highlights

"The Midnight Gang is a book by David Walliams. It’s about a boy, Tom, who goes into hospital and meets new friends there. It’s quite a creative book as stuff that happens in the book wouldn’t normally happen in hospitals, but it gets us to use our imagination and visualise things that MIGHT happen. Overall, I think that the book is a good book if you area person that likes to read adventurous things OR realistic fiction novels."

“I liked this book because it had really nice images and diagrams especially the ones that show Ella and her friends warm ups at twister, (I did a few in my spare time and I also learned how to do a cartwheel) I also like how the author connected her work at twisters and at her school together by making the topic gymnastics.”
