Book Review

It was very easy to read but lots of fun seeing what would happen next

My favourite character is Norma because she was so funny and outspoken. She made me laugh.
The story is an adventure story because they are trying to get donuts. People who like animals and funny book would love this story.
I would have preferred it if it had been a bit longer, it has loads of pictures as it’s a comic book. The pictures really illustrated the story so well and it is lovely and colourful.

The beginning of the book is funny and I loved reading it straight away.
The ending is a happy ending and lots of fun.
It found it very easy to read but lots of fun seeing what would happen next.

I really enjoyed reading this book.
