Twitch by M. G. Leonard



Twitch is about a boy whose only friends are birds until he saves a bully 2 times and they become friends. It is a detective story but not as exciting as the Famous Five. I think it should have been more scary. By: Luke (age 8).


Twitch is a book about a boy obsessed with birds. So when he goes out birdwatching he finds out a criminal escaped into the woods. I think this book is really exciting and adventurous. I recommend it for kids ages 9-12! By Rosie (age 12).
