YOUR REVIEW
The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan I think Darren Shan’s books are exciting, thrilling and gripping. They could give some people nightmares, but I loved this series of 12 books. Darren (a schoolboy) gets turned into a half-vampire and his frenemy Steve Leonard getsturned into a vampaneze. Then through a series of misadventures, they become ARCH enemies! So if you like darkness, gloom and excitement you’ll probably love it! Ryan Barbour, 10

HOW TO... NOT BE BORED
Run out of ideas about what to do? Well, these ideas are just what you’re looking for! Reinvent something old Find an old T-shirt and ask your mum or dad if you can reinvent it. Jazz it up with fabric paint, sequins, buttons and patches. Reinvent your room Sometimes just moving a few pieces of furniture (or picking

the clothes up off the floor!) can make your room feel new. Make posters for the walls, and use things from around the house to make it seem brand new. Invent a sandwich Empty the fridge and see what crazy combinations you can come up with – nectarine and meatballs, cheese and jam – and then ask someone in your family to try them! Be sure to name them. Come up with a signature Write your name 100 times on a piece of paper trying different styles. Who knows, you might be famous one day and need to sign your autograph lots. Only eat green things for a day Join the dots on a friend who has freckles – just make sure it’s with a washable pen! Start a band Invite your friends round and ask them to bring instruments. If you don’t play anything, make

some percussion instruments such as maracas and drums. Pick a singer and a song and, hey presto, you’ve got a band. Write to the prime minister You can make a difference! Do you feel strongly about something? Should we ban cars, fine people who swear in the street or make sweets compulsory for kids? Then write a letter to the prime minister. Eat breakfast for dinner! Make up your own Olympics Invent five events – you could include leapfrog, a wheelbarrow race, cartwheels, or anything you fancy. Split your friends into teams, pick a country to represent and make some medals out of foil-covered card.
