Hot Dog 4. Review by Felix. Kevin misses his mum but Hot Dog is back to help him. Hot Dog, Lizzy and Kevin enter game day to win the prize trip to rainbow island. I thought it was pretty good. It was easy to read. I read it two times the day I got it.

Book-A-Like: Shining & The Happiest Refugee

Processed with MoldivStories of strength, resilience and courage feature in this week's Book-A-Like.

Abdi's world fell apart when he was only fifteen and Somalia's vicious civil war hit Mogadishu. Unable to find his family and effectively an orphan, he fled with some sixty others,heading to Kenya. On the way, death squads hunted them and they daily faced violence, danger and starvation. After almost four months, they arrived in at refugee camps in Kenya - of the group he'd set out with, only five had survived.
Despite what he has gone through, Abdi is a most inspiring man, who is constantly thankful for his life and what he has. Everything he has endured and achieved is testament to his quiet strength and courage, his resilience and most of all, his warm-hearted, shining and enduring optimism. - Shining: The Story of a Lucky Man, Abdi Aden

Anh Do nearly didn't make it to Australia. His entire family came close to losing their lives on the sea as they escaped from war-torn Vietnam in an overcrowded boat. But nothing - not murderous pirates, nor the imminent threat of death by hunger, disease or dehydration as they drifted for days - could quench their desire to make a better life in the country they had dreamed about.
The Happiest Refugee tells the incredible, uplifting and inspiring life story of one of our favourite personalities. Tragedy, humour, heartache and unswerving determination - a big life with big dreams. Anh's story will move and amuse all who read it. - The Happiest Refugee, Anh Do
