Book Interview Review #18: Sardines of Love by Zurine Aguirre

Sardines of Love by Zurine Aguirre

Continuing with our Bookstart Bear Club. I sat down with Ethan and did our little interview of the book that he had read, (or rather I have read it out loud to him). At the time of writing this review, my Ethan is 4 years old.

  • What was the book about?


  • Who is/are the main characters? Tell me something about them, What happens to them in the story?

Lola & Lolo & the Octopus. Lola is the King of Sardines because he loves sardines. Lolo cooks sardine for him everyday, but one day she ran out of sardine in her shop – only a tail is left! She go fishing and caught an octopus, but the octopus ate her! She live inside the octopus’ tummy and made sardine of everything.

Lola was sad that Lolo was gone. He misses Lolo so much and he can’t stop crying, and flooded himself to the ocean. Then the octopus ate him too! Then he was happy again because he see Lolo and they ate sardines together and live in the octopus’ tummy like a house.

  • Is there are pictures (illustrations), how did they tell the story?

She live inside the octopus’ tummy and made sardine of everything. She made: tomatoes sardines, sardines pizza, sardines sauce, sardines pate, sardines jelly, sardines ice pop, sardines cake, sardines butter, sardines syrup. She even has the Sardine Cookbook! They just love sardines!

  • What was your favourite part of the story? Why did you like it?

When Lola cry so much. He cry himself to the ocean. It is silly and funny.

  • What sort of book was it? Was it a picture book, a chapter book, a fantasy book, a nonfiction book for sport fans?

A picture story book.

  • Did you like the book? Why or why not? What was good about it?

Yes, I think it is silly and funny when he cried into the bucket.

  • What sort of people would like this book?


  • Rate of 5 stars ( 1=Not so good; 2=Not Bad; 3=Okay; 4=Better; 5:The Best! )

There you have it! Have you read a book with your little ones recently? Try these interview questions. It really is interesting and quite surprisingly fun to see how much they understood the book. I don’t see this as quizzes, I see this as a way of interacting with my kid. I hope this interview book review is a helpful guide. Please note this is not a sponsor post. All words and photos are of my own, (except all of the answers answered by Ethan, of course).
