Dog Man is an excellent book .It is about a dog (who has a human body) who is also a police officer. An evil cat escapes from prison. Read more to find out what happens. I really enjoyed this book. It is funny and has great illustrations.

Kids’ Club Review by Macy: Hairy Maclary’s showbusiness

Hairy Maclary's showbusinessHairy Maclary’s showbusiness, Lynley Dodd

Hairy Maclary’s Showbusiness, By Lynley Dodd, is a rhyming book for younger children, but all children will enjoy. Both genders will love this book, as the main character is a boy. This book is about a dog that is tied to a tree, he escaped the tree and entered the annual cat show. All and every cat were terrified of Hairy Maclary. Hairy Maclary was chased by all the hosts; finally Miss Plum caught him. It was a big mess after that chase! Hairy Maclary is very scruffy, therefore, he won the scruffiest cat prize. I would recommend reading this book because it has lots of catchy rhymes, this made it enjoyable to read. I wanted to keep reading the book because… What would the cats do to Hairy Maclary? I learnt that even if you’re not meant to get the prize, you can still have a chance; everyone has a chance. It made me feel overjoyed because Lynley Dodd is a great author, and this is another great book wrote by her. Other children would enjoy reading this book because it will teach them a lot. All Lynley Dodd’s books have lots and lots of repetition and rhymes, making her books exciting to read.

Kids’ Club Review by Zahra: Hannah’s night

Hannah's nightHannah’s night, by Komako Sakai (1966-)

This book is about a girl called Hannah who woke up in the night. 🌕 She had a pet cat that was awake too. 🐱 Her sister wasn’t awake and no one in her family was awake.

It was a short story. I love the story because it was funny. The funniest part was when Hannah had to pee and her cat had to pee at the same time.

My favourite characters were Hannah and the cat. I liked the pictures.

If I could give this book another title it would be Hannah and her cat’s night. If I could give this book another ending it would be that her sister wakes up and they have got gummy bears and have a party together.

I would recommend this book to girls and for anyone iwho wants to wake up early before the grown-ups.
