After enjoying Oliver Fibbs: Attack of the Alien Brain, the children were keen to read the second book in the series. Oliver Fibbs and the Giant Boy-Munching Bugs, by Steve Hartley, is another adventure of the comic-reading, storytelling boy whose vivid imagination allows him to escape his dull and boring life and become a superhero and defender of planet Earth.
This is Rabbit’s book review. What is the story about? A boy who tries to get bitten by a bug to catch Wenghi Benghi fever. Do you like this book? Yes. Why? It was funny and I like the giant bug pictures.
This is Monkey’s review. What is the story about? A boy who makes some comic stories about him getting Wenghi Benghi. Do you like this book? Yes. Why? I love it because of the tropical jungle comics he made.
This is Owl’s. What is the story about? A boy who pretends/ tries to get bitten by a tropical bug to get a fever for something good to tell at school. Do you like this book? Yes. Why? I like the Wenghi Benghi comics. The latest episode of Superboy is “Superboy and the Jungle of Death.”
So they all loved it, and I enjoyed reading the story to them and seeing how they were inspired by it.
I recently took the big boys to a bookshop and they wanted to check if there were any more Oliver Fibbs books yet, so I think that is a good sign. Steve Hartley, your next book is eagerly awaited here!
We received the book for free in order to write this review.
