Kids’ Club Review by Juliet: Weekends with Max and his dad

Weekends with Max and his dadWeekends with Max and his dad, by Linda Urban

Whoo-hoo! You should read this book! Linda Urban is a great writer! (I’m in a crazy mood because the book was so good). I love the look of Max’s Porcupine Habitat. There’s superheroes in the book. They look so ugly! (Ugggg! Don’t worry, anybody-who-doesn’t-like-superheroes. The superheroes are plastic). I would recommend this book to my friend Declan.

Kids’ Club Review by Juliet: Pinkbeard’s revenge

Pinkbeard's revengePinkbeard’s revenge, by Greg Trine

I’ve never read a Jo Schmo book before, but so far I love Jo Schmo! Greg Trine is such a good writer! I absolutely love the drawings by Frank W. Dormer (even though they have no colour). I want to say something to you, but don’t laugh. Pinkbeard used to call himself Blackbeard, but he drank so much pink lemonade that his beard turned pink and then it was no use to call himself Blackbeard because he had a pink beard! Ha ha ha! Oops, I laughed myself. Don’t tell anyone, promise? Yo’ve GOT to read a Jo Schmo book! I can count on you to read one. I would recommend this book to any people who like adventure stories.

Kids’ Club Review by Juliet: Princess Mirror-Belle

Princess Mirror-BellePrincess Mirror-Belle, by Julia Donaldson

I love Princess Mirror-Belle! She is so mischievous! Julia Donaldson would get the prize for Most-Funny Story if there was one! I think that everyone should read Princess Mirror-Belle. I think it is suitable for 5 years and above, and it would appeal to all 3rd and 4th years. It is about a reflection of a normal girl who comes out of mirrors and thinks she’s a princess and tells princess stories about herself that aren’t true and gets up to all sorts of mischief! I wish I was Julia Donaldson so I could write books like her.

Kids’ Club Review by Max: The lion inside

The lion insideThe lion inside, by Rachel Bright

This book is about a mouse and a lion. The mouse went to the lion to try and learn to roar and then when he got to the top the lion got a bit scared of the mouse and then they became friends and the lion laughed and the mouse didn’t learn to roar, he just needed to speak loudly. The thing I liked about this book was that they made friends and lived happily ever after and it was awesome. I think my friends would enjoy this book because it is a good story. I would give it five stars because they made friends.

This book was firework fabulous! I loved it! (I said ‘firework fabulous’ because it’s New Year)! I loved the illustrations by Laura Ellen Anderson! They are so realistic! I really absolutely loved the story (made up by Cerrie Burnell). It had a great plot and AMAZING characters. I really appreciate all the hard work Laura Ellen Anderson and Cerrie Burnell put into Harper and the Circus of Dreams. I would recommend this book to all my friends at Ngaio School.

This book was lovely! Roald Dahl really hit the target this time! I love the BFG! He is so friendly! I kind of wish it didn’t have to go back to you, the librarians.I love the illustrations by Quentin Blake! I would recommend this book to Kitty, my sister.

The secret of whale islandThe secret of whale island, by Thea Stilton

This book was fabulous! I really want to run out onto the pavement saying ‘WOW’ the whole way, but I can’t. It would be too embarassing. Anyway, Thea Stilton is a definite top notch in writing and illustration (not as good as Geronimo Stilton though). I definitely recommend this book to you!

Kids’ Club Review by Hannah: The Secret Seven

The Secret SevenThe Secret Seven, by Enid Blyton

They went to the Professor Wills to look in the telescope so they could look at planet jupiter but then there was a little problem so they went with other people to help. I liked it because they solved the bad bit so it ended happily ever after.
