Little Celeste
By Dawn McNiff
Book review by Milly Gibbins

Little Celeste is an unpredictable book where anything could happen. This book has an interesting story-line which anyone could easily understand. Little Celeste is a short novel about the eleven year-old main character Shelley. With the entertaining voice of Shelley, I was instantly drawn into the story. I mostly like idea of the magical baby. Little Celeste is not just fun and entertaining; it also told a story of a seeking love and attention to an almost lost mother, family and friendship.
Eleven-year-old Shelley only leaves her bedroom for two minutes, but when she gets back there is a real, true-life, lavender-eyed baby on her bed. Its far too noisy, smelly and heavy to be a ghost baby- so whose is it? It can’t be her mums- Shelley would have noticed- but its not like her mum is around for Shelley to ask anyway. She’s to busy trying to get her ex-boyfriend Scott back, who Shelley definitely does not like as much as her mum does but someone has got to look after the baby, and give her a name. Celeste sounds good (in fact it sounds kind of magical) and so Shelley and Celeste embark non some rather messy adventures , gain new friends and realise that maybe some wishes can come true after all …
My favourite part in this fascinating story is when, at the end, the baby’s identity is revealed. I recommend this book to any age as you never know adults might like it as well as you. This book is definitely 5 stars!
