Junior Review: The Ugg Boot War

In this book, The Ugg Boot War, the main character, Jake is forced to go shopping with his parents and this means his Dad. 

Now, you might be thinking, so???? But the problem with Jake’s Dad is he is constantly wearing his Ugg boots. Ugh! It is so embarrassing! This means war! 

First, Jake and his friend, Max try to take the Ugg boots while Max’s Dad is in the shower and hide them under the lounge. But Max’s Mum finds them! So, Max tries to slowly take them at night time when his parents are sleeping. But when Max comes home from school the next day, his Dad is wearing them! Banjo the dog had found them! 

Max tries so many other plans that don’t work when finally, he realises that it is wrong to try and take away someone’s pride and joy, so he sets things right again in the end.

This book has a meaningful lesson in it and is an easy read. I would recommend this book to boys and girls age 7+.
