What Addlestone Chatterbookers thought of Oliver Fibbs and the Attack of the Alien Brain

Oliver Fibbs: The Attack of the Alien Brain

Review by Matthew Presland age 10

Oliver Tibbs is an ordinary boy with extraordinary ideas. He likes reading comics and they how he thinks. Now he thinks “What if…?”

Oliver tells his fantastic stories to the class in ‘show and tell’ and I like the way the author shows these stories in the form of comic strips. I found the book really fun to read and I found it hard to put down.

I think Oliver is a likeable character with a unique personality. In his stories the person he dislikes the most becomes the bad guy. Algy (Oliver’s little brother) is another great character. He is very intelligent but a little bit cheeky.

The only thinking that I dislike about this book is that there isn’t much happening outside Oliver’s stories.

In conclusion, I think this is an enjoyable book with funny stories and characters. I recommend the story for 7-9 year olds. I would give it 4 and a half stars out of 5.


Review by Billy Nuttall age 9

Oliver Tibbs, or nicknamed Oliver Fibbs, is an ordinary boy with an active imagination. Every week, Oliver’s class has show and tell. The problem is that Oliver never does anything exciting on the weekend. So prepare for the adventures of Dabman! My favourite character is Oliver Tibbs because his stories are always quite interesting. I like that the stories are in comic book form. I dislike that it only tells you about his school life and not the rest of his life. I would recommend this book for children aged between 7 and 10.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.


Well done to Matthew Presland who won February's book review of the month for his excellent Oliver Fibbs: Attack of the Alien Brain review.

Once we had read Oliver Fibbs we created our own comic strips just like Oliver does, take a look at them!
