I liked Pip because he was a kind and generous boy. I liked how he tried to help Miss Haversham and Magwich. It was a happy ending because Estella and Pip were never parted again. I read it to my Dad and he thought it was brilliant.

An Amazing Book
I really enjoyed this book as it was full of emotions and details. My favourite character was Pip because he was a nice person and very brave in trying to resue Miss Havisham. It was a sort of sad ending.

I liked the book because it was scary and good. My favourite character was Magwich because he was scary.

This book is wonderful for children and adults. There is a young boy called Pip who lives with his older sister, and Joe the blacksmith. Barry Ablett the illustrator has drawn very impressively to my point of view for this book because the pictures almost look like they are telling the story themselves. My favourite character is Miss Havisham, because I like the description of her house. Hope you enjoy this book.
