    I won Danny Dingle's Fantastic Finds by Angie Lake through Goodreads Giveaways. This is a very funny book with great illustrations. I think primary school kids would enjoy it, especially boys! It is book #1 in the series.

    My son absolutely loved this book. It's full of things a middle school aged boy just loves. Love finding interesting reads for him.

    There's a chance I'm technically a little older than the intended audience for this book, but as a responsible adult I had to check the suitability right? Well Danny Dingle seems pretty good. Things start well, the book itself looks good with a quality cover and blue-edged pages - they give it a good shelf appeal. The artwork both on the cover and throughout is classic comic style, and high quality too. The fonts are good for both kids and adults alike.

The artwork both on the cover and throughout is classic comic style, and high quality too. The fonts are good for both kids and adults alike. There's a lot of care gone into this and it would make a good bedtime read. The story has a healthy dose of farting and puking - cheeky enough to get some good giggles without going over the top and being too inappropriate. The jokes have a good blend for the ages - there are even a few thrown in to help keep parents smiling as they read. As for the plot? It's good. Danny is a curious child and we follow his experiments and projects. I think it's great that both his parents and teachers are encouraging this curiosity. It culminates in an old fashioned soap box race - just like people with target age children will remember reading in the Beano and Dandy. It's fun and kids who want to be like Danny will pick up some good habits (except maybe skipping PE). The only downside I'd critique is in the edition I read the word "brakes" was spelt as "breaks" twice. It's a small thing but it niggles me in a book like this. It is small though, and overall the book is great fun - silly with a good core. This is the kind of book I would've enjoyed immensely as a kid, and as an adult I see lots of reasons why I'd want my kids reading it too. I received a complimentary copy as part of the First Reads programme.

    This is a hilarious and inventive boy orientated read. I never had a brother so I can't speak from experience but Danny's habit of picking random things up and trying to use them to make something seems accurate for boys of his age. Fiddling and inventing lead to some scenes which filled me with astonishment – I felt so sorry for his mother who had to put up with her husband encouraging Danny on.

Fiddling and inventing lead to some scenes which filled me with astonishment – I felt so sorry for his mother who had to put up with her husband encouraging Danny on. I liked the way that Danny worked to create a moving vehicle for the school contest, even if the teachers didn't have much sense when they selected the course which had a fair few scary parts that health and safety would certainly not like. I was either laughing or gasping in terror at what would happen next. A very minor point which didn't detract from the story was that there didn't seem to be chapters, which puzzled me a bit as chapters provide easy stopping points (or not). That aside, it's definitely a book to brighten your day with. I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review on my blog Nayu's Reading Corner http://nayusreadingcorner.blogspot.co...

    Danny Dingle's Fantastic Finds: The Metal-Mobile was a hit in my classroom. I passed it around the room after I’d read it myself and many students flew through it, some finishing it in one night. It was funny, appealing, entertaining and very relevant to my all boys Primary School class. The illustrations were comical at times and proved very appealing to my class. It stimulates many discussions among my students too and prompted them to seek out the other books in the series.

It’s a great read for young children, one my class would definitely recommend.

    This was a hugely entertaining book and quite different from most of the other children's books I have read recently. It didn't appear to have a particular message to deliver. Instead, it was a book with a huge emphasis on fun, which I found rather refreshing. The book was certainly never boring! The great illustrations added to the charm of the book. Recommended for children who particularly enjoy reading about invention and adventure.

    I really enjoyed this book. I think the humor is perfect to draw in many children and keep them reading. I mean, honestly, who can resist burps and fart humor?! My eight-year-old son read this over my shoulder and laughed manically so this is a winner for me! This will be put in my home library very shortly.

    I am way past the age that will find this tale super appealing, but it's not terribly over the top offensive. Kids 4th-7th grade will appreciate the fart and puke (somethings NEVER change!) It is a pretty funny book and I'm sure some ids will find it appealing and funny.

    A good alternative for the lower KS2 end if they're tired of Wimpy Kid but still want a madcap illustrated story. Fast-paced, silly and packed to the brim with fart gags.

The boys have a clubhouse/ laboratory and work together to build the soapbox. The narrative is rather weak with lots of days just spent in school and talking to teachers. I didn't like this book.

    I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. Danny Dingle’s Fantastic Finds was an amusing piece of middle grade fiction. Full of fart jokes and gross bodily functions, there’s something to keep any kid entertained. The book looks delightful with blue edged pages, and the story pace moves fast to keep young minds interested. I finished this one and then handed it to my daughter to read.

She chuckled out loud when she was introduced to Superdog, and hours later she’s still amused by it. The content should have been hilarious, but there seems to be something in the execution that didn’t quite hit the mark. It’s still fun; it just wasn’t a side splitting romp. The main thing that held me back on this one was the editing. There were a few mistakes here and there, but my pet peeve was the wrong synonym use. When you’re talking about stopping a soapbox racer, it’s BRAKES, not BREAKS. I made sure to point it out to my daughter so she doesn’t pick up the wrong spelling, but it annoyed me that I had to. Still, it was entertaining, and filled with cartoons to make it seem like you accomplished reading something much longer than it actually was. Perfect for the intended audience.

    Pencil-like drawings, almost doodles, are interspersed throughout the story of a schoolkid whose only skills, despite his huge belief in himself, are goofing off and farting. I think Superdog is a great name for a toad. My favorite line is “A tumbleweed rolled past.” But seriously, there’s a lot of farting going on. And there’s only so much you can get out of a mediocre kid pretending he’s smart. The beginning of the egg chapter had me cringing. Not sure what the message is here.

So I am very happy to be giving this to her and adding it to her classroom. I want to say a big thank you to the author and goodreads for sending this book. It meant a lot and I don't see too many books that are written like this, so it was a nice surprise! :)

    If you have a boy that avoids reading, this book could be useful. With a picture on nearly every page and bodily function topics sprinkled liberally throughout, most boys will be laughing out loud as they read.

On the downside, inappropriate behavior is not punished and is actually encouraged. The main character repeatedly calls his rival disparaging names. The father and mother are not working as a team, with the mother holding the most control and the father hiding things from her. I'd put this book more at 2.5 stars, but considering the target group, it does still have merits for engaging non-readers in a longer book. * I received this book free as part of a giveaway *

    I won this book on goodreads first reads. I entered it on a whim because I thought even though it is a children's book and I am not a child threat it would be a cute read. And I was right. I did feel as though it was more centred for a boy to read. The characters are all boys except a few very small cameos by girls and everything they charcaters did I think was more things boys would do. That is great for the male readers.

I probably would recommend this book.

    I was so happy when I received the message that I had won this book. I just knew my grandson was going to love it.. and I was right. So here's his review as follows.. Me: Hey kiddo did you finish reading the Danny Dingle book I got ya ? James: The one with the blue pages ? Yeah that was frickin hysterical..even Joseph ( older brother ) thought it was crazy funny. Me: Cool, I'll go back on and rate it for you. How many stars do you think it should get ? James: All of them..

    I received this book from Goodreads. Danny Dingle is hilarious! I like his optimistic personality and his habit of picking up odd and unsanitary objects off the ground. Of course, it's all in the name of science. Scientific inventions. Scientific inventions that usually involve some things belonging to his mother that are usually unusable after his gets done with it. I really did feel sorry for that woman. Especially on the days her husband cooks Bean Jelly... Ha! It was entertaining though.

    I received this book from a giveaway listed on Goodreads. It was a fun read, but as another reviewer said, it might have benefited by being split up into a few chapters, to give a place to pause reading. The story was cute, but I have no idea what bean jelly is, so a small explanation would have been useful. I did find the lack of respect for expensive property a little disturbing, but I think the book would appeal greatly to a young boy.

    I was thrilled to be able to read this book courtesy of a Goodreads giveaway. A hilarious read for kids and kids-at-heart to enjoy! Full of farting and burping, it definitely kept everyone entertained. The blue edging and detailed illustrations were a lovely addition. Full of laughter and highly recommended!

    Received free via a Goodreads giveaway. I gave this to my eight year old daughter to read, which she did with little pause. Upon finishing it, I asked her what she thought of it. She said it was really good. I asked her to score it out of 10; she gave it an 8. High praise indeed. Thank you, Angie Lake.

    We received this book from a Goodreads giveaway. It was "epic" (Isla , age 9) and " very very funny" (Tom, also age 9) - very easy reading for children of this age, also suitable for much younger I'd say. It's written in varying type faces so quite dyslexia friendly. This will appeal to children who also like Tom Gates. Thank you for the book we really enjoyed it.

    I received a free copy of this book as a Goodreads giveaway. I thought this was well-written and nicely illustrated with plenty of interest for primarily but not exclusively boy readers. Some of us never grow up, so even though I am older than the target audience, it amused me at times and I can recommend it.

    This is such an adorable book! I highly recommend for children who love adventure and inventions. The story-line is enthralling and never boring. The illustrations add to the charm of the book and provides the reader with an inside view of Danny's life and inventions.

    This is a fun book recommended for a boy who is just getting started reading in his own. It's certainly something that could be read by a girl. It's not very long but it has cute ideas and is easy to follow. I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads giveaways.

    A seven and eight year read it and said they liked it. They said 3 out of 5 stars but for the cover and page ends matching in dark blue and the illustrations on every page, I give it a 5 for the visual impact. I received a copy for review, in this case by the kids, from Goodreads first reads.
