I recently received the book Circus of Thieves and the Raffle of Doom by William Sutcliffe for my 9 year old son, Ryan, to review. 
“Hannah’s Life is boring, boring, boring! But everything changes when she meets Billy Shank, His grumpy camel and a host of bizarre circus acts. All is not as it seems at the unusual circus; The evil ringmaster, Armitage Shank, has a dastardly plan involving light-fingered thievery…. Can Hannah and Billy stop his stinking scheme before it’s too late?”

Ryan said he found the book hard to get into, but to be honest I think he just had his computer games on his mind. He said it was quite funny and overall he would give it 6 out 10.
There are some great illustrations throughout the book by David Tazzyman. And I love the fact that the main character is a girl, as often these types of books normally have a boy as the main character which makes a change.

I have not 1 but 3 copies of this book to giveaway! So for your chance to win one just enter the rafflecopter below

  1. I think it’s good for a book to make a child laugh, thats what will keep them interested, we all know kids have the attention span of well, kids! I’m not sure it would be Abbie’s cup of tea when she’s older but maybe if we have a little boy ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  2. This sounds right up my daughters street. Shes 11 and heavily into reading. I think the fact its a girl main character and not a boy will appeal to her more ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. This would be great for my grandson Jack who until recently was a reluctant reader. Now he can’t get enough of good stories. I would like to keep the momentum going. So much harder with boys than girls ๐Ÿ™‚
