Book Club Review: Bertha The Blubberer

This week we read Bertha the Blubberer from The World's Worst Children by David Walliams. Here's what Book Club thought!

Bertha the Blubberer review by Sam

Bertha the Blubberer is a girl that loves pudding and everyday she cries about everything. 

I really like Bertha the Blubberer because it was really funny. There's one thing I did not like about it and that is that on one page there was loads of food and it made me hungry. It's really good for kids for age 6 and older.

I would give it 4 and a half stars out of 5.

Bertha the Blubberer review by Jack

I enjoyed the first 2 pages because some of the things that Bertha cries about are silly and funny and it made me laugh. I think that readers would laugh too!!! I do not like page 39 because it talks about a load of food and it made me hungry.

What does Raj think?   

The poor children who have read this book must be starving I know I am.
*he smacks his belly, it wobbles*
Mr Willy Willy Bum Bum is meaner than I thought. And I thought he was mean enough making the book. He is so mean I can't talk.

Me: 4 & 1/2 stars
Raj: 1/2 a star


Bertha the Blubberer review by Ellie (SPOILER ALERT!!)

I enjoyed this story because it was quite funny that Bertha didn't like so many things. I was happy for her brother at the end because he got quadruple puddings each night and Bertha would have to watch him eat them.

I think this story would be for people aged 6 and over. I would give this story 4 1/2 stars out of 5.

My favourite sentence from Bertha the Blubberer was:
'He had endured a lifetime of bawling and had therefore fashioned earplugs out of marshmallows!'

Bertha the Blubberer review by Meg

INTRODUCTION BY ME RAJ, BY THE WAY THERE IS 20% OF MY YUMMY SCRUMMY ROLOS ENJOY MY 1 YEAR OLD CHOCOLATE HURRY MY OFFER DOESN'T LAST!!!! If you bought this book by willywilly bum bum destroy it, stamp all over over it, burn it, tear it up just to be TOTALLY SAFE!!! 

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! This story begins with a girl called Bertha who is a very big blubberer. She blames everything on her brother like when she said, 'Ouch! He pinched me'. Bertha's brother gets told off all the time and one day he couldn't listen to her blubbering anymore so he made some marshmallow ear plugs. 

I like this book because it is funny and my favourite part is the page with all the pudding on. YUM YUM. This book is aimed at children 7-12 years old. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read it. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
