3.0 out of 5 starsNot for us but I’m sure fans and confident readers will enjoy it!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 September 2019
The Amelia Fang series is very popular with year 3 and year 4 children (especially the girls) but it isn’t one I see the appeal of as an adult I have to admit! Amelia is a pumpkin living little vampire who is on her fifth adventure now and is heading to the Yeti mountains to celebrate a very important yeti birthday. But trouble starts when some yeti treasure goes missing... My 8 year old granddaughter isn’t a big reader so books have to be something special to capture her attention. She enjoys the Isadora Moon books so thought she may enjoy this one too. The book itself is beautifully presented with gorgeous blue edges but she did struggle with the storyline as it was very “full” and too much going on for her. She also struggled with words being spelt the way the characters said them which also confused her a little as she’s only just really learnt how to spell and sound them out properly. For a confident reader who has followed the series so far, I’m sure it will prove to be a hit but if your little one is a reluctant reader then this may not appeal. I’m sure the toilet humour will go down well though!

The illustrations and unusual layout grab the attention – 3 Stars
The presentation of this book is exceptionally good. The cover illustration, in black and azure, really stands-out, and the blue/green edging to the pages is very attractive. Inside, the attention to visual detail continues, and with numerous illustrations, change in font size, and some pages being white-on-black, this is a book that grabs your attention.
The story is an entertaining enough, and with plenty of humour centred around bodily functions (burping etc.), it’s likely to appeal to many youngsters. Friendship is a big theme in this book too, and Amelia has friends that come in all shapes and sizes. The only reason I gave this just three stars is that it includes a lot of poor English language, and although this was a reflection of the way characters spoke (dropping aitches etc.), I found it extremely annoying.
3.0 out of 5 starsKids' humour and good illustrations

This book will appeal to a lot of kids with the burping etc., but it didn't quite live up to the expectation set by the previous books in the series. Maybe my friend's daughter has just come to an age where this series is too young for her. The illustrations are good and the writing likewise. The child has to be quite good at reading to "get" the literal spelling of some of the sentences uttered by the characters in the book.
