Do Not Push product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsIf you found a big red button in the middle of a forest, would you push it? Even if it said 'DO NOT PUSH' in big red letters?

When Cam decides to give the button just a LITTLE push, he doesn't think anybody will notice. But he's in for a big surprise!

On returning home, he discovers his world has changed - no longer is it a world with rules, and everything is in chaos.

I read this while waiting for kids to finish school. I found it didn't take long to read through and could and will read it again if i can get it off the kids. I often find that i am left sitting waiting in the car with nothing to read and this fits perfectly in the nappy bag.

I love the visual pictures that the story brings to life as you are reading and i don't know if i could do what Cam did. I probably would have followed the second instruction straight after the first and missed out on all the fun of having no rules, after all, what more could go wrong.

I find looking at the cover, it doesn't give much of the book away. After all, all that's on it is a big red button. I am guilty of judging books by the cover and must say, this is a great fast read.

The man in my life, probably wouldn't have gone back to pull the lever, he would more than likely love a life with no rules.

Do Not Push, a fun to read book for the younger reader. I would say best suited for maybe ages 6+ and am delighted to say this is the first novel(ish) kind of book my master 9 has read alone and actually finished. He has learning difficulties so the story line appealed to him, he found it interesting and easy to read and I am very proud of his accomplishment - reading the whole book in 4 days.

The topic of the book 'Do Not Push' posing the question: "If you found a big red button in the middle of a forest, would you push it? Even if it said 'DO NOT PUSH' in big red letters?" lead to quite a family discussion, with some interesting answers in deed. Apparently I am less likely to take a risk than the rest of the members of my family, and would not push any random button whether there was a sign or not. Miss 5 would push the button, but if there was a sign then nope she wouldnt. The male members of my household (young and old) would all push the button no matter what, LOL Icon.

The story, despite its level of realism definitely has a hidden message/lesson to be found within its pages, and I am glad that master 9 picked up on that message.

A really great read, that I am sure most would enjoy. I enjoyed reading it and thought it really was a good wee book.
