Book Review

I love how it’s laid out. All the words are spread out and the text is not squashed together

The story is story is set out in the countryside and about saving the planet, saving the trees and the wildlife and stop building companies building on the nature.

The characters are Keisha, KD, Paisley, Jayden, Otis and the dog called Minnie. I really like Paisley because she is very generous to everyone. The friends are called the Bee Squad because they like taking care of the Universe. They help others to learn about climate change. The grandma was an eco-warrior and Keisha wanted to be an eco-warrior too, and save the planet from destruction by the factories.

The opening paragraph is about walking up Steep Hill with her dad and her brother. Keisha said all the trees look like broccoli, and they all laughed. The ending is about the three friends, staying in the tent, and the brother comes up, dressed as a dinosaur to try and scare them as as he is supposed to be a monster.

There are lots of pictures and diagrams and illustrations in the book. I really enjoyed looking at all of them because they’re really interesting and I like them. They makes my imagination go along with the story and pictures.

The book is really easy to read, and I love how it’s laid out. All the words are spread out and the text is not squashed together. The chapters have fun pictures and illustrations making it a really fun story to read.

I recommend this book for anyone aged 8 +
