Scarlett by Cathy Cassidy Scarlett is a girl who somehow causes a lot of trouble. Whenever she’s around, accidents happen and whether she’s guilty or innocent, she is usually blamed. Scarlett’s mum is fed up with being called into school to sort things out and decides to send her to Ireland with Dad, Clare and their daughter Holly. How will she cope with a new school and Clare becoming pregnant? Perhaps a mysterious local boy called Kian might be able to help . . . This book is amazing and I couldn’t put it down. Throughout the whole thing, it made me feel how Scarlett was feeling. Overall, I recommend this book to girls aged 8+ who like Jacqueline Wilson. One of the best books ever!

There’s a moose loose in this hoose! Actually, it’s not in this house at all but in New Zealand – or is it? A hundred years ago, 10 Canadian moose were released in New Zealand and now one company is offering 100,000 New Zealand dollars to anyone who can prove there are still moose alive and kicking in the country. It could start a whole new craze. 1 Pre-heat the oven to 170C/340F/Gas 3. Put the oats, pecans, coconut, salt and brown sugar into a large bowl.
