Kids’ Club Review by Ruby: The edge of the world

The edge of the worldThe edge of the world, by Ian Trevaskis (1949-)

I think that the Edge Of The World is a good book because it has great pictures. The pictures are great because they look like the olden days and they show whats happening in the story. I like how the author told the story. The way he described the details to me made me feel like I was there.

Kids’ Club Review by Michael: Calling all master builders

Calling all master buildersCalling all master builders, by David Fentiman

Lego fan alert! I like the charachter Benny the spaceman because they rebuild metal beard and used his parts to build a double decker space ship! They get chased by Lord Business’s bad cop and the Green Ninja saved them! It’s a cool book for Lego fans Wyldstyle is in it too (and her 3 cats for animal lovers like my sister!)

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: The wizard’s umbrella : story collection

The wizard's umbrella : story collectionThe wizard’s umbrella : story collection, by Enid Blyton

I LOVE this story collection thing. These stories are a mix of fantasy and real life, which make them even more exciting. The stories in this book are mostly short ones, only a few pages long. There are the other types of the story collections as well: There can be all the stories of a series in the same book, or there can be different, short stories in the same book, like this one. I reckon you should give these a go, because I think you’ll like them like I did.

Kids’ Club Review by Keya: The princess and the pearl

The princess and the pearlThe princess and the pearl, by E. D Baker

Do not be fooled by the name!!! this book is actually a really good book. When Annie’s Father and uncle fall ill with the deadly disease the creeping blue, and no doctor can cure them, Annie, her husband Liam, Adun and his wife Millie head out to skull cove to find the witch doctor Ting-tang, but then find out that the cure is a giant pearl held by a sea witch, Annie’s resistance to magic means she’s the only one who can battle the witch.

A great addition to the wide-awake princess series and a great 6th book.

Kids’ Club Review by Francesca: The Minpins

The MinpinsThe Minpins, by Roald Dahl

The mani charachter is Little Billy who meets tiny people (The Minpins) who live in trees. They have wonderful adventures and tame birds for little Billy. There is a scarey monster that I didn’t like. The Minpins and the the story being in nature was my favourite bit. I like Roald Dahl. Good big print book with good illustrations. Recommend for ages 7 and up.
