READING Titanic: Disaster at Sea Philip Wilkinson Mankato, Minn.: Capstone Press, 2011 J 910.9163 WIL
How to Hide a Lion Helen Stephens London: Alison Green Books, c2012. JP STE Iris meets a frightened lion and she invites him to her house. She tries hiding the lion in several places -- behind the shower curtain, under the blanket and even up a tree. However, it is difficult to hide a huge lion, and he is eventually discovered by Iris’s mum. Obviously, Iris’s mum does not like having a lion in the house. Thus, he is forced to run away and hide on his own. However, when trouble strikes the town, the lion saves the day and becomes an unexpected local hero! Filled with lovely illustrations, this delightful story about the friendship between a large lion and a small girl is bound to capture the hearts of children. Reviewed by Jaslin Koh
It was a tragedy. Titanic, the greatest cruise liner ever built, collided with a huge iceberg and sank. This tragedy brought about the deaths of about 1500 passengers. The rescue mission is an interesting and exciting episode that would definitely capture the reader’s attention. Hundreds of years later, this tragedy still lingers in the minds of many. Armed with a huge poster and fold out diagram of the ship that can be found in this book, you might be able to find many hidden secrets that are yet to be revealed. Inside the book, you will also find many other pictures about life as a first class passenger as well as what working in the boiler room is like. Read this book to stretch your imagination! The best moment in the book comes about when I read about the personal accounts of the passengers on board the Titanic. The book is brought to life as you flip through the beautiful illustrations of the different sectors of the boat. The saddest point of the book was when I read about the many families who were killed when the ship sank. I like it when the author was able to include facts that make the event come alive. For example, he would include small excerpts from the passengers themselves. Other books that I would recommend from the author would include “Amazing buildings” and “What the Romans did for us.” This review was contributed by Eshand Jagatheesan, aged 11. Eshand is a Junior Reading Ambassador with the National Library Board. When he is not reading, Eshand enjoys playing basketball, watching football and surfing the net.
The Mysterious Benedict Society Trenton Lee Stewart New York: Little, Brown, 2007 J STE The adventure begins for 11-year old orphan Reynie Muldoon when he answers an advertisement in the newspaper with the words: “ARE YOU A GIFTED CHILD LOOKING FOR SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES?” After passing a series of bizarre tests with his exceptional use of logic, Reynie Muldoon finds himself in the company of three other children who have talents as extraordinary as his: Sticky Washington, who has a photographic memory and remembers everything he reads; Kate Wetherall, who is extremely agile and can do almost any physical feat possible; Constance Contraire, whose talent is apparently being very small and disagreeable. They meet with a kind and intelligent man, known only as Mr Benedict, who explains why he needs their help: Someone has been transmitting subliminal messages through the television and radio signals, and it is causing the people of the world to panic. These messages come from the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened (L.I.V.E.), and the Sender has been making use of children to send them.
Three Pickled Herrings Sally Gardner London: Orion Children's Books, 2013. JS GAR Emily, Buster and Fidget from the fairy detective agency suddenly receive three cases to solve when strange streaks of bad luck occur at Podgy Bottoms High Street. One case involves the unusual death of Sir Walter Cross. All the chaos is actually due to a lost elf, Elvis, who needs to get his magic umbrella back in order to return home safely. Will the three fairy detectives be able to outwit Toff the Terrible and help Elvis? This is a delightful story of friendship with doses of magic and humour as well as an extraordinary fairy godmother. Reviewed by Siti Nadiah
The four children embark on a daring secret mission to go undercover at L.I.V.E and spy on the Institute’s sinister founder, Ledroptha Curtain. However, they run into more obstacles and risk being discovered. Will they succeed in their mission? Or will the evil Curtain triumph?

This book is suitable for children aged 10 to 12 years old. Reviewed by Mindy Tan
