The forgetful knightThe forgetful knight, by Michelle Robinson and Fred Blunt

This book is about a forgetful knight who is on a mission to rescue his horse, Sir Clopalot. I thought this was a nice children’s storybook with pleasant illustrations. I would recommend this book to young children.

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.

The book is about angry cookie. He doesn’t have any parents. I liked when he tells me to stop reading. I liked the pictures and the speech bubbles. The book made me happy at the end.

There’s a crack in my bum. How did I do that? Hmm of course it happened when I farted! What type of bum should I get? Pink, blue, green or should I get a metal one! This book was funny and it made me laugh. I think children 2+ would enjoy this book.

I think Te Tanguruhau/The Gruffalo is a great book. The addition of Mouri makes it even better. I think it is a great book for 3-5 year olds.
