Book review of Natural Born Leader Loser

Kid review of Natural Born Loser by Oliver Phommavanh | book review is brought to you by my brother Book Boy Jr (11).

Title: Natural Born Leader Loser

Author: Oliver Phommavanh

Publisher: Penguin Random House Australia

About the book: This book is about a kid named Raymond, a natural born follower, who is selected as a prefect in a crazy school. The story follows him and the other prefects as they work towards their goal of new air-conditioners for the school.

What I thought: This book is one of the best I have read in a while, and is a quick and easy read. Although the book has no pictures, it creates a good scene in your head. It’s funny in a goofy, cartoony kind of way, and is always easy to pick up and hard to put down.

I recommend this book for anyone 8+, although there are a lot of words for kids who might be used to pictures along the way. They should persist though.

My brother writes younger reviews for Book Boy as Book Boy Jr. My book reviews have appeared in The Sunday Telegraph, and on sites such as Children's Books Daily, Creative Kids Tales and Inside A Dog.
