I have got the school’s guinea pigs for the holidays. They are called Badger and Cocoa. Their favourite foods are cauliflower and carrots and they eat grass non-stop. They don’t like bananas or apples and they barely drink anything. They don’t usually bite unless they mistake your finger for a carrot – they don’t seem to see very well! I love Badger the best because he sits for a cuddle and doesn’t wriggle. Grace Chester, 7

YOUR REVIEW
Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz Scorpia Rising is the last Alex Rider book. In this book Alex thinks he is safe, away from MI6, but when a sniper shoots at him at school Alex is plunged (yet again) into a world of murder, betrayal and intrigue. I couldn’t put it down. It was so exciting, with so much suspense! I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense and adventure. Jess Hopkins, 9 Well done Jess, a Hop EB toy is on its way to you!
