What I liked most about this book is that Cymbeline Igloo always has a way of making you smile, he has a way of making you almost forget everything and just being engulfed within the life of a young boy , who has to deal with a lot a such a young age. This book is definitely a comedy, but there are also a lot of things about this book that is truthfull I feel like this book is so realistic and I know that young kids who may be going through a tough time at the moment could definitely use Cymbeline Igloo in their life! He has a way of almost making you forget about all your problems and focusing on his, this may sound a little selfish but if really does get your mind off things! There are a lot of children who have or are going through what Cymbeline went through and this book I feel would just give them courage, the courage to not be afraid to question things . To not be afraid to accept things the way they are! Something I’ve definitely learned from this book is that in order to find the truth, you may have to go deep...

An interesting, funny book for everyone of 10 or older. A book about a boy named Cymbeline Igloo (yes that's his real name) has never been swimming before like EVER. He desperately tries to persuade his mum to take him but she tells him disgusting things about the pools that could put anyone off the pool for life. His school make his dreams come true but not what he was expecting. He Googles how to swim, he borrows his dad's trunks but he doesn't know what he is in for when he can't swim. Buy this book because it is very entertaining and very enjoyable to read.

I like the way this book is set out because it's a bit of a cliff hanger at the start because the boy never found out why he never had a chance to go swimming but his dad died when he was very young and his mum never told him what caused that either so at the start I thought the reason that he was never allowed to go swimming was because maybe something happened when he was very young to do with his dad and drowning so that s what his mum doesn t want to happen to Cymbeline.

The Train to Impossible Places

The Train to Impossible Places, P. G. Bell

It's not everyday a train passes through the downstairs of your house with little creatures working as all different kind of things. Suzy is a normal, hardworking school girl who realizes that something isn't right, she hears something downstairs in the middle of the night and finds something unusual. This book is very imaginative and there are so many unexpected surprises. This book is great for most ages, it doesn't matter how old you are to have somebody read the book to you or read it yourself as long as you understand the book. I love how exciting this book is, you never know what will happen next and it makes you want to never put the book down. I recommend this book to anyone who loves adventures, fantasy and fiction.

I have just reacently got boy under water and I'm already enjoying it. The blurb hooks you in and makes you wonder why he has never went swimming. It is funny and also mysterious. Cym is a strong character who has a sense of humour. I would rate this book for the age of 9+

I like that Suzy can hold her ground when she was arguing with the troll and when she took the snow globe from Lady Crepsucular because someone was trapped in it. I found it funny when Suzy did her physics homework; as when her mum and dad told her to have a break she wouldn't and it said she had finished a hour ago but she just filled the pages up with questions. When she hands the homework in even her teacher moans at her because she writes too much! I haven't read it all yet but I can tell it's going to be a great book.

I like that it is funny because he talked about something then goes back into his past story which is a bit different to the many books I have read but I still really like it.
