Many of your know I’m a huge vampire fan and that all started from an early age when I used to read all the children’s books I could get my hands on about vampires. From vegetarian ones who ate soap to ones who drank cola. Fangs Vampire Spy Book 1: Operation: Golden Bum (Fangs Vampire Spy books) is about Special Agent Fangs Enigma and his sidekick, werewolf Agent Puppy Brown, who were recruited by secret intelligence agency MP1 (Monster Protection, 1st division) to stop the world’s super(natural) villains and monster criminals from realizing their evil plans. This book is a really fun read with great characters. The storyline is basic as you’d expect, but it is the humour and wit in the story that was brilliant, the kids loved it. With some fun graphics, this makes for a great bedtime read to read with your child or for them to read on their own. These books are a perfect fit for my boys aged 7 and 9, I’d say for a bit older readers too. We have already purchased more in this series. Great for reluctant readers.
The summer holidays have already started here in Scotland and let’s face it, there are times when the children will come to you and say the dreaded “I’m bored”. This is where this great little book comes in handy. Tommy has a few Boredom Busters books. More Quick Fixes for Bored Kids anyone who spends time with kids, will love this book. Perfect for ages 5-11, this book is bursting with activities to keep your child occupied and educated into the bargain. Not only does each activity include hints and tips, but also ideas on how to alter the activity for different ages. This book is a very funny read and has some great ideas from a fun variant of “I-spy” you can play anywhere. We love playing it in the car to keep the kids entertained “I-smell”, “I-touch” and “I-taste” hilarious. The boys can go to it and read some fun ideas when they are looking for something to do. There are over 50 activities in here, so there is something to suit everyone.
There are so many books of Tommy’s we could have chosen, I highly recommend you have a look through his list. We are now hooked and thankfully have many more to chose from.
