What would you do if a Comet was coming to Earth? This book tells you what the moomins did.
The moomins are white fluffy creatures who live in the forest. When all the animals start acting strange moomintroll recognised it as a warning sign. The book tells us what it means and what they do about it.
My Favourite part is at the end but I can't tell you why, you will have to read it.
I think the book would be suitable for seven year old and up, even adults.
I would give it ten out of ten.
I was sent three of the tiny twisted tale books to review. They are Jenny, pale Henry and Stuart the big eating man. This review is about Jenny.
Jenny isn't a girlie girl, she likes to hunt werewolves! The story is about one of her adventures with her trusty bat to hit the werewolves with.
I really like the book because it rhymes which is like a song you sing through the book. The pictures are brilliant and really funny, especially of the werewolf.
I wouldn't normally read books about werewolves but I'm really pleased I tried this because it's brilliant.
The book is easy to read and that's great because you can read it again and again. It's really good to read out loud as well.
I definitely recommend it and can't wait till the new ones come out.
because I wish it was longer
If it was then I'd give it full marks.

Emma (mum) says:
The tiny twisted tale books are written and illustrated by Calvin Innes and published by my little big town. They are "a collection of spooky, scary, strange, disgustingly wonderful and wonderfully macabre stories" designed to engage children with books which they enjoy. I would never have picked a book like this off the shelf at the library of local book shop, I wouldn't have thought it would appeal to Rachel. But now she's read it about 10 times in two days I've realised that I'm not the expert in her choice of books. A good lesson for all us parents.

Choosing my meal
I look up at the wall
And notice something
Very very tall
Looking down at us
She seemed to be
Looking right at
You and me
Did she want my pizza
Or my tasty garlic bread
I couldn't keep eating
I was watching her instead

This picture by Kim Nelson reminded me of a picture in an Italian restaurant. I wrote this poem about what it would be like sitting in the restaurant eating pizza.
Shining through the winter night
Gleaming making the dark bright
Safe from all the darkness fright
Beautiful gleaming wonderful light
I wrote this because mummy was writing poems about windows and I came up with something.
