This a very humorous book by well-known Australian novelist Morris Gleitzman. It is suitable for 10-14 year olds and focuses on the issues Rowena Batts is having with a local larrikin, her mother's death and her exuberant father. Due to a birth defect Rowena can't speak, however, this doesn't affect her having plenty to say. Her story begins in the local lock-up where she is being detained for filling up a local lout's car with rotten apples and turning the heating on full bore. Her quest to fin [...]
Salah satu buku anak paling bagus yang pernah saya baca :)Namanya Rowena Batts, gadis yang jiwanya itu bebas banget. Dia itu pemberontak. Bukan pemberontak dengan konotasi negativf gimana ya, dia itu intinya independen dan pemberani. Contohnya dia itu masukin berkarung-karung apel ke mobil anak cowok jutawan di desanya karena si cowok gak menghargai pas ayahnya mengengang ibunya yang udah meninggal saat dia masi kecil. Terus pas apelnya udah dimasukin ke mobil cowok itu, dia nyalain alat pemanas [...]
I read this book as a kid, and I still enjoy reading it.This was the first Rowena Batts book that I had read - I didn't know it was a series until later when I noticed in the back of my copy "Sticky Beak" and other novels from the same author, among the adverts for the works of Paul Jennings (another Australian classic). A lot of people seem to be complaining about the change of tone from the previous books, or just the dark tone of the book in general.As the first one I read, and as a young chi [...]
hwaaaaaaaaa sedih beneeeeerdahal udah nahan2 jangan ampe airmata menetes dipipi *kayak lagu2nya dian pisesha yee* tapi akhirnya pada bab2 terakhir gak gagal dengan sukses pas di angkot lgsg sibuk nyari2 tissue, n diliatin ma orang2 :))sedih banget pas si ro jatuh di parit ketindihan martir, dan akhirnya tahu kenapa orang2 di prancis pada begitu perhatiannya ma dia ternyata ************
Buku ini lanjutan dari Blabber Mouth, di buku ini Rowena beserta Ayahnya yang sangat eksentrik berlibur ke Prancis guna menghindari masalah Sang Ayah di Australia. Disana, Rowena berusaha untuk mencari kebenaran tentang kematian Ibunya.Ceritanya tetap konyol dan lucu. Tapi di beberapa bagian, kisahnya dapat membuat kita terharu dan bersedih. Sayang endingnya belum selesai. Sepertinya akan ada lanjutannya lagi!!
ONE STARTRIGGER WARNINGS: kidnapping, violent content (including gunplay), sociopathyRubbish. Pretty much sums it all up. It's got little to do with the other two books. And the author's attempts at moralising are just plain sick.Includes stereotype of improving sense when another sense it aspect doesn't "work".Not recommended.
The ending of this book is amazing and so shocking! I remember a group of us in school used to pass this round and take turns so we could all read it.
Morris Gleitzman was so awesome at age eight, but he gets extremely annoying in a Bryce Courtenay-type way as you get older.
Morris Gleitzman was one of my absolute favourite childhood authors - I even got his autograph! His books are light and easy to read and have a comedic value only Andy Griffiths could match.
This was way better than I thought it would be! It's just A bit childish for me. I guess the cover art put me off it at the start but over all a pretty good book :)
Due to a birth defect, Rowena can't speak but she has plenty to say in this sometimes funny tale of a girl learning about her family's past and dealing with the present.
Well it is a exciting book that make you jump off your seat when you read it.
This book was not anything like I expected.
Quite entertaining for a young reader.
