chloe from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

curiosity is an entertaining book about a mars robot who goes to space. The only reason I gave it a nine is because it had more illustrations than writing but otherwise amazing! I wouldn't change anything1

Toby from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

CURIOSITY Curiosity is a fact book about a Mars Rover (there are a lot of pictures in it). It is a good book if you want to read something quickly, however, I feel it should be more detailed and have less pictures. What it tells you is interesting so I might recommend it to someone who likes to learn about space. I give it a score of 6/10. I hope what Iâ?™ve told you has helped you decide whether you will read it or not. Will you read it next?

Rhyan from Year 6, Morley Place Academy:

I only just started it today but this book has already moved my heart. It just gives you the time to just read the book. It also feels like Iâ?™m actually taking to Curiosity. It just gives a inspiring message to all readers. I highly suggest you do have a read of this book.

I have not read it all yet but I have given it a ten out of a ten it is really cool and descriptive and is also really good for little children because of all the pictures the moment I read it I fell in love that I think my heart litterely dropped

Leon from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This is a fantastic book if you're interested in moons and Mars and space. I enjoyed it when they found out Curiosity (a space robot) landed on Mars when the people on Earth thought they'd lost him! Curiosity had a long journey because he had to go 350,000,000 miles! The illustrations are really good, I don't know how they can draw like that! The author must be really interested in moons and space, there is a lot of information so he must know a lot. I felt amazed that we had the technology to do something like this. Did you know that Curiosity travels 13,000 mph? Wow! It took 253 days until it finally landed. That's almost a year! I would recommend this book for people who like space and astronauts.

Courtney from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

Curiosity is a really good book. My favourite part is when Curiosity - the mars rover- lands on mars! My least favourite part is when it tells you how it was made. Would you like to readcp this book? From how Curiosity landed on mars to how many different rovers there have been launched in the last few years, this book has everything on mars rovers. Please read this book and tell me what you think.

I rated this book a 4 because it could of had a few more fun facts because it was only telling us about how a robot got to the moon or space I found out a few facts out but I think they could of made a bit fun I didn't enjoy the book but you might I do recommend this book if you like space the moon and robots.

Alex from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This book is really good for people who like science and experiments. It tells you some parts of North America. Will we find out every thing about Mars? This book has a great start to it. As soon as I read it I was MINDBLOWN! Its full of facts of how they created it. It should be awarded BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD!! The author made me feel weird and confused because it looks like such a bigger place compare to Earth. This book has helped me to imagine more things.
