Kids’ Club Review by Molly Morgan: Be prepared

Be preparedBe prepared, Vera Brosgol

Vera cannot wait for O.R.R.A, a Russian camp where she will finally fit in. O.R.R.A is not what she expected. Can she learn to fit in or is she destined to a miserable four week camp torture? I really enjoyed this book because it was an interesting read. I think kids 9+ would enjoy this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Be prepared

Be preparedBe prepared, Vera Brosgol

This book is about a Russian girl called Vera who lives in America. One holiday Vera went to a camp called Oppa, which is for Russian children. Vera discovers she is not only a lot younger than the other girls but that there is no electricity, no proper toilets, and she has no friends. Will she cope? I liked this comic as it had a great plot, I read it twice. It was funny too.

Kids’ Club Review by VARSHA: The Bad Guys. Episode 1

Syndetics book coverThe Bad Guys. Episode 1 / Aaron Blabey.

The bad guys is a humorous book written by Aaron Blakey.It’s about these bad animals who try to become good guys.I think that it is a great book to help and encourage bad kids to be good.This book made me roll with laughter.
My most favourite character is Mr Wolf because he had lot of determination to help his crew try again.But, my least favourite character is Mr Snake because he always complained about everything.
I would recommend this book to my friends.Now, another thing I should tell you is that this is a great book for both boys and girls in the age group 7-12.
