Eleanor from Year 9, Ridgewood School:

The sound of light padding feet echoe in your ears as the family of foxes embark on their repetitive journey to watch the football match- extremely different right? Well not for these lucky pups! As fans of the massive Leister City, they make their way through bends and corners to support their loving team...even though they unfortunately loose EVERY time! With hope slowly melting away through sweat, tears and upset, their key to the door is lying right beneath them: Richard III! Will story telling, magic and digging their way in to success save their happiness- and of course their beloved team! Although I am a more developed reader, this book tickled my taste buds as it included the most unusual subjects together ( foxes, Henry III and Leister City)!? Moving on, the interesting fact file half way through was very educational if you are looking to learn about 'Bosworth Field' and the battle that took place there! To close this subject, it flowed brilliantly and never became boring which I find is a common problem in primary books! For me, I would give this book an 8 out of 10 for the interesting story line and the great flow! However - although I know it is for younger readers- I would of loved to to take more unexpected turns and it to be slightly longer as I would of love to delved in to it for a couple of days ; however I finished it on the day I received it! On the other hand, small books can make a massive difference! Any fun loving reader will enjoy the small pleasures of loving animals in an exciting adventure! Enjoy!
