The book I read is The Ice Monster by David Walliams, illustrated by Tony Ross and published by HarperCollins Children’s Books.
The characters in this story are Elsie, Mrs Curdle, Queen Victoria and the ice monster. Elsie is a homeless orphan who lives on the streets of London. Mrs Curdle is the nasty old woman who owns Wormly Hall, home for unwanted children. Queen Victoria is the ruler of the British empire in 1899. The ice monster is a woolly mammoth that is displayed in the museum.
I like it because it is exciting and it makes me feel good. I recommend it to Olga because I miss her.
