Review: Doctor Doom: Oli and Skipjack’s Tales of Trouble

Holly goes solo with this review. She chose this book as part of her reading challenge, and read nearly all of it herself while we were away in France (putting the rest of us to shame as we didn’t finish any books). Over to you, Holly!,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU02_.jpg



Title: Doctor Doom: Oli and Skipjack’s Tales of Trouble

Author: Ceci Jenkinson

Publisher: Faber & Faber

What it’s about: This book is about a bank robbery, an evil dentist and two boys whose names are Oli and Skipjack. Oli wants to become a spy and Skipjack has to  avoid being hit by a cricket bat from his enemy, Slugger. Make your day fantastic with this funny book.

Holly’s review: I liked this book because it was fascinating and funny. Just because the main characters are boys doesn’t mean there aren’t girls in it as well. I chose to read this book because I really liked reading about it when I read the blurb.



Childtastic Books started out as a collaborative blog, written by me and my young daughter Holly. Now she's nearly a teen, she's off doing exciting and new things but I am still here, reading, writing and reviewing books for children and young adults of all ages. I miss her input but I hope she will pop in from time to time to do some guest posts! A little about me - I have just finished an MA in Children's Literature from the University of Roehampton (result pending, eeek) and am a part-time primary school librarian. The other part of my time is spent writing and editing, my own work and others, and I am waiting for my first non-fiction book to be published - a teacher resources pack for Handa's Surprise. I welcome comments and love to hear from visitors to this blog. Please note though that, because of time constraints, it is rare that I can read and review books from self-published authors. I receive so many requests and feel badly about not being able to keep up with them all. Thanks for visiting! Sam
