Book Title & Alexandra's Review

Canned by Alex Shearer

11 and up

Fergal Bamfield has a very strange collection. He doesn’t collect stamps or toy cars. No. He collects tin cans. And not just any tin cans; he collects cans without labels. But one day, when he opens one of his cans, he finds something gruesome: a human finger. Then he finds another can, containing a one-word message, “HELP!”

I found it interesting how Fergal thought about the unlabeled cans. He likes the idea of how anything could be in those cans. It could be something incredible or something disappointing. You might find that weird, but there are those mystery boxes with surprise toys, and people buy those. It’s the same concept.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. When I read the inside cover and read that Fergal finds something weird in a can, I wanted to know what he found. I was guessing a human limb or cash or something even more bizarre. When I read the inside cover, my brain must have skipped over the word ‘finger.’

This book does get a bit disturbing. And I read some alarming books, so that’s a lot coming from me.

After this book, you will never look at a tin can the same way ever again.
