When Quinn gets selected to be a trainee mapmaker, his worst nightmare comes true. Suddenly he is sailing the world looking for evidence that the earth is round. Will he and his crew be able to do it? I really enjoyed this book because it was an adventure. I recommend it to children 9+.

Kids’ Club Review by Evie: The School for Good and Evil

The School for Good and EvilThe School for Good and Evil, Soman Chainani

I really like this book because it has everything a book needs, humour, seriousness, fun, adventure, magic and many other things. At the start of the book i thought it would be like of boring but then i reached the part that basically controls the whole story, when Sophie and Agatha think they are in the wrong schools. Sometimes with everything happening thing can get a little confusing (thats the downside) but mostly i just love the whole series and i am exited for the new book to come out in march.

Kids’ Club Review by Lily: How to bee

How to beeHow to bee, Bren MacDibble

I really enjoyed this book as it made me think about how this world would have to function without bees. Peony is a brave and all round kindhearted character who just wants the best for her and her family and I think that she is just the type of character that a story like this needs.
