Kids’ Club Review by Josie: The secret of the old clock

The secret of the old clockThe secret of the old clock, by Carolyn Keene

This book was a quick but good read, it was nice to see Nancy meeting new people and helping them in every way that she could. The range in characters was amazing, from little Judy, to Grace and Allison Hoover, all the way to Abby Rowen. This was a great read and I can’t wait to read more Nancy Drew!

This is the second book in the Nancy Drew series, and it is compelling and I loved the prospect of a haunted house. The characters were good, though sometimes slightly confusing.overall this was a great read!

Kids’ Club Review by Annaliese: Hairy Maclary, shoo

I enjoyed this book because I would love a dog. It all started with Hairy Maclary and his friends who saw a van and hopped in. They got shut inside and went on a trip past some places with cool names e.g. slippery side. He finally gets rescued and taken home. Lots of fun words.
