Kids’ Club Review by Sofia: Captain UnderPants And the attack of the talking toilets

Captain UnderPants And the attack of the talking toilets, by Dav Pilkey

Two eight year old boys named George and Harold (they’re BFFs) accidentally create an army of talking toilets that want to destroy the city.
A great part of this book is the Flip-o-rama because it gives you a picture in your mind and you can make your ownSound affects while you flip the pages!
This book has no bad language so it is appropriate for all ages from 6 and older.

This is an extremely funny book with quite mischievous characters.

The moral of the story is: Never use things you don’t know about.

Kids’ Club Review by Kohaya: The Ersatz Elevator

The Ersatz Elevator, by Lemony Snicket

I think this book is really good. It is about the Bauldaire orphans are taken in by people who are rich and their names are Esme and Jerome Squalor. If you have read the previous book, the Austere Academy you would know that the Bauldaires new friends Duncan and Isadora Quagmire have been kidnapped by count Olaf. Here Count Olaf tries yet again to steal the Bauldaire fortune. This time posing as a man named Gunther he befriends Esme Squalor. I liked this book because there is a lot of action and there is also a funny pun. See if you can find it. Go on and read it . . .
