This book is fiction. My favourite character in this book is King Coo. King Coo is a bearded girl who lives in the woods with her pet, Hebert. She is my favourite character because she is brave and she is always active with something to do. Also, King Coo always believes in herself which makes her achieve anything she would like to do. I would recommend this book beacause it has questions to answer and mysteries to solve. It also has weird but funny characters like King Coo.

There was a boy who had a best friend who lived in a treehouse in a very scary wood. One day when he was at school a teacher from a new school came in (he was actually a robber). They made the boy tell his mum he was a security guard at the museum as something had been stolen. His Mum booked them to the museum and he found the robbers hide out and he was forced to be on their side. His friend who lived in the tree house was friends with the Mummy and rescued him. I didn’t enjoy the book that much because I felt it was missing something.

I think this book is marvellous. It's about a boy and his friend called Coo who stop a gang of thieves from stealing treasure. Coo because she is a weird girl who makes traps and inventions. Yes I would recommend to someone else.

I loved this book! It is full of crazy, fun inventions that King Coo makes to scare robbers in the night! The illustrations are really good and they help you to picture the scenes in the book. The author has used good choice of words so readers can really imagine what is happening. My favourite character is King Coo because of her inventiveness and excellent plans! I would recommend it to 8 - 10 year olds. It is a good book!

I liked the foreshadowing and the need to reread back in the book. The plot was a bit predictable but I enjoyed reading it
