Kids’ Club Review by Millie: Northern lights

Northern lightsNorthern lights, Philip Pullman

Amazing! This book is about a girl named Lyra who when spying on her uncle, Lord Asriel she finds out about Dust, North Pole and the Aurora she wants to leave Jordan Collage to go with her uncle to the North Pole. Her uncle says she can’t go but when a woman with a golden monkey says she is going to the North Pole and she would like to take Lyra with her. Lyra’s life changes for ever. I would recommend this book to 10-14 year olds.

Kids’ Club Review by Annaliese: Hairy Maclary, shoo

I enjoyed this book because I would love a dog. It all started with Hairy Maclary and his friends who saw a van and hopped in. They got shut inside and went on a trip past some places with cool names e.g. slippery side. He finally gets rescued and taken home. Lots of fun words.

Kids’ Club Review by Alice: Hairy Maclary and Zachary Quack

Hairy Maclary was having a snooze on the grass and there were lots of bees. Zachary Quack then comes. Then Zachary Quack wants to play but Hairy Maclary says no. Then Hairy Maclary runs away. I liked Zachary Quack. He is a duck but did not go into the water much times. Hairy Maclary is in lots of books.
