Kids’ Club Review by Enerel: Extra special treats (–not)

Extra special treats (--not)Extra special treats (–not), by Liz Pichon

This book is about Tom, his family, friends and classmates.

This book has won lots of prizes. I like this book because it has first-class writing style which was magnificent. So far, I have read one-hundred and fifteen pages with my mum and dad. I think this book’s characters are so real. I learnt that if you have a star pupil budge teachers are nicer.

I recommend this book to everyone.

Kids’ Club Review by Caitlin: Christmas chaos

Christmas chaosChristmas chaos, by Meredith Costain (1955-)

This was a very quick book for me to read, it had pictures and it had easier words for younger children. Ella and Olivia are excited about Christmas, but then Ella isn’t so sure about it when things start going wrong. This book would probably be better for younger girls. I would recommend this ages 5+

Kids’ Club Review by Samuel: Frank Einstein and the antimatter motor

Frank Einstein and the antimatter motorFrank Einstein and the antimatter motor, by Jon Scieszka

This book was about Frank Einstein who built two robots but they didn’t work. A storm went past and activated the robots. Then the robots helped Frank make the anti-matter motor for the science prize. But then someone stole the anti-matter motor and the robots. Frank eventually gets the robots and the motor back.
It was a good book because it was interesting, informative and told you lots of stuff about science. It’s a science novel.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
