Kids’ Club Review by Thomas: Dog Man

Dog ManDog Man, by Dav Pilkey (1966-)

This story is about a cop with a dog’s head called Dog Man!

Dog Man is the best out of all the other cops, because he can sniff out anything, can take down any bad guy and has a rivalry with a villain called Petey the Cat!

This book is in comic form and it makes me laugh out loud whenever I read it.

I would recommend it for ages 7 or 8 +.

Girls in tears by jacqueline wilson is an amazing novel and the fourth book in a wonderful series.
In the book series you follow the story of Ellie, her friends and her boyfriend. In this book however is about when Ellie falls out with her friends and her boyfriend, and her dad and step mum are falling out too. Her friend Magda is upset about her hamster dying and her friend Nadine is mad at every one going on at her about how dating a boy online is not safe.
It kept me really hooked the whole time and I kept wanting to find out what was gonna happen next.

Kids’ Club Review by Leela: The enchanted wood

The enchanted woodThe enchanted wood, by Enid Blyton

It’s so funny because Moon Face talks so silly with the toffee in his mouth! And it also slightly annoyed me when Joe got taken off the ladder but mostly I found it funny. And I was a little bit annoyed when everybody got a piece of the toffee before Moon Face gained his item. I’m halfway through the book and looking forward to finishing it.

Kids’ Club Review by Dante: Horrid Henry

Horrid HenryHorrid Henry, by Francesca Simon

Henry has a lot of attitude. But when Henry tries to be good his brother, Peter, can’t stand it. There are lots of funny parts in the story.

My favourite character is Henry because he does lots of silly things, like splashing people with his water gun. Another funny thing is that Henry does is be silly with the vacuum cleaner and sucks up everyone’s clothes.

I dislike Margaret because she is very moody and not nice. She never lets the boys get the good stuff too.

I learnt that having a bad attitude is a bad thing and no one likes a bad attitude.

I think everyone should read Horrid Henry books because they might like them as much as I did. I rate it four stars!

Kids’ Club Review by Samantha: Captain Underpants and the attack of the talking toilets : the second epic novel

Captain Underpants and the attack of the talking toilets : the second epic novelCaptain Underpants and the attack of the talking toilets : the second epic novel, by Dav Pilkey (1966-)

I loved this book.

It is about Melvin that makes a machine he calls the PATSY 2000, which is a copy machine that makes images of things come to life. There are two also little boys named George and Harold that are really silly and funny at the same time. They get in detention and they have to write on a whiteboard but they don’t, instead they make a comic book which was they call Captain Underpants And The Attack Of The Talking Toilets. George and Harold use the Patsy 2000 to copy the book. But the book characters come to life. There is a man in the book that when he hears someone click there fingers he turns into Captain Underpants and when someone pours water on his head he turns into his plain old self again. In the end he saves the town.
It is a exciting book which I read in three days.
