The Green Ship By Quentin Blake

What is it about :

The story is about two kids, who find a green ship in there neighbours garden and ride round on it. But then they get stuck in a storm.

What I enjoyed:

I enjoyed that it wasn’t just a normal ship and it was very creative. Also I enjoyed that you wasn’t going to know what was going to happen.

What I disliked:

I disliked that it wasn’t very long and I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

My favourite part:

My favourite part of the story was when they climbed over the wall and looked thought the vines at the ship.

I would recommend this book to people who like Quentin Blake and people who like adventure story’s.
