Minecraft : the islandMinecraft : the island, by Max Brooks

This book would be interesting for pretty much anyone. Its about a Guy who goes on his boat with some of his friends and falls out of the boat and goes into a blocky world that everything is made out of blocks. He has to protect himself from monsters who want to kill him and there is no other humans on the island only him.

Kids’ Club Review by Charlie: The magic faraway tree

The magic faraway treeThe magic faraway tree, by Enid Blyton

I thought it was really funny because he is kind of deaf eg. is someone said to him “have a plum” he will say “oh have you hurt your thumb” in the book what happens is they are sad because they have to move house but ten they find that they love the new house and the wood behind it… I would recommend it for ages 5 plus because it isn”t scary at all it’s really exciting

Kids’ Club Review by Isabelle: Roller girl

Roller girlRoller girl, by Victoria Jamieson

it is the most awesome book, like, EVER I absolutly loved it it was so cool to look at astrid’s roller derby team with their hair all died and their cool nick-names for each other and if you are thinking of reading it then you should know that it isn’t just about roller derbying it is about drama and friendships my favourite bit is where astrid dyes her heir and her mum totally freaks out. after I read it I really wanted to do roller derby for a whole YEAR thats how ultra awesome it was. I whould recommend it for ages 7 plus so if you see it you should try it .

Ned's Circus of MarvelsNed’s Circus of Marvels, by Justin Fisher

It was confusing in some bits because the world was kind of wierd and I could only imagine the place that the scene was in and the backround was just white mist and it made it kind of hard to understand what was going on. in it ned thought he was just an ordinary kid until he has to run away from these evil clowns and his dad gets captured by them so he goes to the circus like his dad told him to and meets magical people and gets powers and has an adventures. I think it would be good for people 8 or 9 plus

Kids’ Club Review by Charlie: The BFG

The BFGThe BFG, by Roald Dahl

I thought it was confusing in some bits because of the gobble-funk (thats the mixed up words that the bfg speaks) I also thought that the giants was meant to be meant to be mean and not friendly. I recommend it for 6 and up.
