The Incredible Record Smashers Reader Reviews

The Incredible Record Smashers

Amatullah Khatun

Amatullah loved this book and kept stopping to tell me all the funny bits and records. She set her own record, reading a book in less than 24 hours!

“The incredible record smashers” was amazing and hilarious. It was about an 11 year old girl, called Lucy. She applies to be on a TV show about record breaking. When her mum is ill, her Aunt Sheila, who worries too much, let’s her stay at her house. Lucy and her play date Sandesh, a boy from her class, attempt at breaking a world record. My favourite part was when Mrs Hunter (Lucy’s year 6 teacher) whispers to the ceiling about early retirement! 

My favourite character is Aunt Sheila because she has a shed full of food, if an earthquake occurs, with enough food for three people to survive for one year. She worries too much like when she told Lucy and Sandesh to be careful at a car boot sale if they get slaughtered by escaped prisoners (even though it was broad daylight!)

I love the illustrations and the different world records at the start of every chapter.

Record Smashers is an amazing book for ages 7 and over. It is about Lucy, a girl who is good at fixing things but she has the hardest challenge - fixing her unhappy mum. It's a happy adventurous book and I highly recommend it.

The Incredible Record Smashers is a book about Lucy and her best friend Sandesh. They both go to the same school and they come up with a crazy plan to beat a record in order to cheer up Lucy's mum. It takes them a while to find a record to break that they can do and suits Lucy. They then realise that they can make up their own record and come up with an idea that then forms the story in this book. I liked the characters and would definitely recommend this book to my friends as I think they would enjoy reading it too. It was an easy story to read and I was able to read it quickly.

A great, funny, record breaking, adventure.

The Incredible Record Smashers is an extremely humorous and adventurous book. It is about two young children looking for a world record to break, to help one of their mothers beat depression. Little did they know there would be obstacles in their way. I liked the character of Sandish because he is funny and interesting, and I can relate to him. All in all, it is a very good book and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes funny books.
