Kids’ Club Review by Jacob: The jungle challenge

The jungle challengeThe jungle challenge, by Bear Grylls

I thought this book was great. This book was about Omar who really wanted to win the running race but then a compass gets him lost in the jungle. In the jungle he is with Bear Grylls who helps him to survive. My favourite part was when Omar went and got across the river with his stick and then when they were nearly across the river Bear said quick get up that tree because there was a caiman chasing them.

Kids’ Club Review by Miki: How to train your dragon

How to train your dragonHow to train your dragon, by Cressida Cowell

It’s pretty good. It involves a little bit of violence but I don’t think it would be too scary for little children. It shows an important bond between owner and pet. It’s quite funny actually.

Kids’ Club Review by Miki: The first case

The first caseThe first case, by Ulf Nilsson (1948-)

It shows that sometimes if you suspect someone or something too much you can often get things wrong. And even if you’re the same species it doesn’t mean that you won’t steal from each other.

Kids’ Club Review by Josie: Harry Potter and the cursed child

Harry Potter and the cursed childHarry Potter and the cursed child, by Jack Thorne

As a massave Harry Potter fan I really enjoyed this book as it showed all about Albus and Scorpius but I do think that it kind of ruins 19 years later from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as you know that Albus is a Slytherin. But overall I think The Cursed Child was a brilliant book!

Kids’ Club Review by Hannah: The beginner’s guide to rugby

Syndetics book coverThe beginner’s guide to rugby, by Cruden, Aaron

Written by a famous All Black, this book I highly recommend to kiwi kids who are thinking about starting Rugby or are going to start rugby and don’t know much about playing Rugby . You will also learn about Aaron Cruden’s life story; how he grew up in Palmerston North skateboarding around.

Kids’ Club Review by Ollie: Barry Loser hates half term!

Barry Loser hates half term!Barry Loser hates half term!, by James Smith (1975-)

I really liked reading this book because of the really cool giant sabre tooth woodlouse. I also really liked the names of the characters as they were really cool and different. My favourite character was Seymour. Also I liked how the author created a new bunch of words like keel (which means “cool”) which future ratboy said all the time!
