I enjoyed every page of Cookie! and the Most Annoying Boy in the World. It’s a very, very funny book. The main character is a smart, tough and fun young girl who thinks that the world is against her. There are loads of really hilarious moments, like when she uses a whole pack of Mentos in her volcano experiment making it explode and cover her in lemonade. I like that it follows Cookie’s attempts to navigate friendships and learn from her mistakes. I like Cookie best but the other characters in the book are also fun, like her boring teachers and her annoying classmates. Throughout the book there are lots of illustrations and doodles that are also funny and help you to visualise the scene perfectly. I think this is an amazing book because it made me laugh out loud and you just can’t help liking Cookie. She can always admit when she’s wrong, and she’s clever too so I think she’s a good role model. I also really enjoyed the appendix at the end of the book which has instructions for all the fun experiments they do in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone aged 7 to 10 years old, it’s great!
