  1. Book title: Cockawun and Cockatoo
    Auther: Christobel Mattingley
    Reviewer: N.S

    Cockawun and Cockatoo were birds living in the woods until a man found them and gave them to his son Arthur. Later on, Arthur’s family move into the bush and Cockatoo flies away. Cockawun starts to go crazy and the neighbour next door shoots Cockawun in the eye.

    The thing that I liked about this book is that it is not based on humans, it is also based on birds because normally in most books it is based on a human.

    The thing I hated about the book was that there were not many adjectives in the book. It would have also been better if they had added similes and metaphors.

    The big idea about this book was the 2 birds and when Arthur moved into the bush Cockatoo flew away.

    I would recommend this book to older kids because there is a little bit of violence in this book and older kids would understand it more.

    I would rate it 2 out of 5 stars.
