Kids’ Club Review by Aadarsh: The daredevil’s guide to dangerous places

The daredevil's guide to dangerous placesThe daredevil’s guide to dangerous places, written by Anna Brett ; illustrated by Mike Jacobsen

This book is about the most dangerous places on Earth. It has lots of facts and it has the danger element in it.

I like Eddie because he knows lots about the places in the book and has some facts to share to us about the places. I liked it when they explained about Caribbean hurricanes and how they form there. I recommend this book to people who want to learn about the natural dangers and phenomenons on Earth. I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5.

Kids’ Club Review by Lily: Wundersmith : the calling of Morrigan Crow

Wundersmith : the calling of Morrigan CrowWundersmith : the calling of Morrigan Crow, Jessica Townsend

This book is a great follow on to the first book in the series and it really got me hooked. It is full to the brim of magic, plot twists and characters each with their own personalities, all of which just makes me want to keep reading. Every thing that happens in this book has been carefully structured to bring out the best and worst of all of the characters, which makes it a really engrossing read.

Kids’ Club Review by Meredith: The extremely inconvenient adventures of Bronte Mettlestone

The extremely inconvenient adventures of Bronte MettlestoneThe extremely inconvenient adventures of Bronte Mettlestone, Jaclyn Moriarty ; illustrated by Kelly Canby,

I think that this book is an excellent read, full of adventure and imagination. Bronte has a crazy number of aunts (10 to be exact) and when she receives a telegram to say that her parents were killed by canon fire from the pirate ship the Thistleskull, she is thrown headlong into an absolutely crazy adventure where she must visit all her many aunts. All the adventures, as in the title, are quite inconvenient for Bronte as she has to follow a series of tasks to give gifts to her aunts.
I liked this book because it was full of humour and Bronte was very funny. I wish Bronte was real so I could meet her one day. She is quirky and would have lots to say about everything. I recommend this book for 7+. Bronte is also in an equally great sequel, the Slightly Alarming Tales of the Whispering Wars.

Kids’ Club Review by Aoi: Hilda and the black hound

Hilda and the black houndHilda and the black hound, Luke Pearson

I like the idea of making a tend by Hilda herself. The tent was made of a blanket and a long string. I thought it was really cool making it in my bedroom. So I asked mum if I could make one and she said she was going to find materials for my tent. I can’t wait making it tomorrow.

The wonderful Wizard of OzThe wonderful Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum ; illustrated by Lorena Alvarez Gómez

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a lovely book written by L Frank Baum.It is about this girl called Dorothy Gale who is whirled up in a cyclone to the world of Oz.
My most favourite character is Toto because he is very adorable.My least favourite characters are The Wicked Witch of the east and west.I think this book can be enjoyed by both boys and girls in the age group 8-14.
