Children's Week: Review: Don't Look Now! Book Two

We're celebrating Children's Week with a series of reviews, articles and interviews by or with kids! To see all our Children's Week posts, click here.

The Don’t Look Now series is about a boy named Ricky, his parents and the car-wash girl.

Everything keeps going wrong for Ricky. There are four books in the Don’t Look Now series and I like Book Two the best because it’s more about Ricky’s everyday life.

My favourite part was when he used a tent at the talent show. You'll enjoy these if you loved the 13 Storey Tree House books because these are also funny, with lots of pictures. 

I would recommend this series to children aged 6 to 11 because the story and pictures are humorous. 

I rate Don't Look Now: Book Two a 9 out of 10.
