A boy who wants to change

the other facts of life The Other Facts of Life, Morris Gleitzman


Year 8+

This book is about a boy Ben who wants to help people from starving.  It starts off with him watching movies about people starving.  His parents get a bit worried about him.  At a family and friends BBQ Ben shaves his head.  This makes his mum and dad really mad and embarrassed.  It was the funniest part in the book.   If we had a choice we wouldn’t read it again because it gets a bit boring in the middle.  we would say people in year 8 up would like it because Ben is around that year and age.
