"The Mute Button" by Ellie Irving. Review from Mia, aged 11.

Review by Mia Madden, aged 11.

This book is about a boy, called Anthony Button, who has gone an 'I'm Not Talking' strike.  This is because he felt he wasn't getting enough attention at home.  The first person to notice that he had stopped talking was his sister, Susie.  She was very surprised as he was normally a chatterbox.  His two brothers were next to notice, with his parents being last.   The discovery of an older brother was the reason for the lack of attention at home.  The strike is going well until Anthony has to give a presentation in school, which means a lot of talking....

I enjoyed this book a lot.  It was really interesting. It had lots about family and was very sweet.  I would recommend this for age 8+.

The Mute Button is published by Corgi Childrens and is available in paperback and ebook format.
