Marge and The Secret Tunnel by Isla Fisher | Review & Win 1 of 5 complete Marge In Charge book sets

Item sent for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Jack is a little bookworm, there is no doubt about that. We reviewed the Marge In Charge series a little while ago here so when offered the chance to review the fourth and last book in the series, we had to say yes. I’m so happy Jack loves Isla Fisher’s books – I remember reading a teen book she released back when I was younger and she had not long left Home & Away. I’m a big Isla Fisher fan and have followed her career avidly and am so glad that Jack enjoys her work as much as I do.

So what is the book about and what did we think of it?

Synopsis

Life with Marge is NEVER boring! Even shopping for new shoes turns out to be an amazing adventure, especially when the lights go out and the children are stuck in the shop! And when Jakey decides he’d like to visit Australia, Marge has the best idea ever. She and the children will dig a tunnel and visit a completely different country . . .

The fourth fun family story in the MARGE IN CHARGE series, written by actor & comedian Isla Fisher and illustrated throughout by Eglantine Ceulemans.

Our Review

Jack is very much getting into bigger books now. He is still getting the few sentences a page books with illustrations from school for reading at home but he prefers a more challenging read and I love that the Marge In Charge series offers this to him. For readers aged 5-8 years old, he is the perfect age group and he really enjoys reading them.

The previous three books in the series made him laugh out loud in places and he was hoping for the same warm fuzzy funny feeling with this book. It didn’t disappoint. We took some time reading together – just like the previous books, this book contained three stories in one. He also headed off on his own to read some to himself like the little bookworm he is.

The illustrations as always just enhanced the book and the fun filled adventures contained within. I’m pretty sure Jack would love to have Marge as a babysitter but I am not sure I could persuade his usual babysitter (my Mum) to behave like that, what do you think?

Yet again the author has pulled it out of the bag with a fun filled book that my son enjoys and keeps going back to. I’ve been telling friends about the series as I think everyone should check it out, they’re fab reads. Read on for your chance to get your hands on some!

Isla Fisher began acting as a child and has worked solidly in television and film for the past 25 years. She has appeared in Home And AwayThe Great Gatsby and Definitely Maybe, to name a few. She also studied in Paris to become a clown for two years before realising that there is not much call for miming ‘the wall’!

Isla has played many roles over the years, from a bonkers bridesmaid in Wedding Crashers to the poster girl for consumerism in Confessions Of A Shopaholic. But her favourite role has been being a mummy to daughters Olive and Elula and son Montgomery. Isla has been making up stories at bedtime for them every night since they were born. These books are for her children, as a reminder of all the fun they have at bedtime reading books and sharing stories.
