Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Diary of a wimpy kid : dog days

Diary of a wimpy kid : dog daysDiary of a wimpy kid : dog days, by Jeff Kinney

It was kinda boring. All Greg does is complain. The only good bits are the photo album at the end and (this was not my favourite) the bit about the Fourth of July. It’s a bit annoying when people from other places talk about their celebrations. You’re just like “dude, I have no idea what you’re talking about.” A couple of the other books from this series were OK, but this was pretty bad.

Kids’ Club Review by Sienna: Diary of a wimpy kid

Diary of a wimpy kidDiary of a wimpy kid, by Jeff Kinney

I found this book funny and I liked the personalities of the characters. The really liked the end where there is a thing called cheese touch. There is a piece of mouldy cheese by the basketball court and whoever touches it last gets the cheese touch. The only way to pass it on is to touch another person.

Kids’ Club Review by Avin: TV star

TV starTV star, by Rachel Renée Russell

I love this book! It’s so inspiring that now I really want to be an actor. Rachel Renee Russell has done it again with another Dork Diary’s book. I now changed from reading 40 pages a day to 50 pages a day because I love reading the Dork Diaries book!

Kids’ Club Review by Avin: Once upon a dork

Once upon a dorkOnce upon a dork, by Rachel Renée Russell

This book is amazing because Nicki goes on a great journey and for every page I feel like I’m with her. Nearly every time I finish my reading target for the day I just want to read more and see what happens! It was a bit boring since nearly the whole book is in a Fairy Tale.

Top 10 Children’s Fiction January 2017

So it’s the holidays – who’s bored? and who is reading? Want to bring some of those tales into real life? Want something delicious to eat but it will totally disgust your younger/older, brother/sister/friend/cousin/relative staying over for the holidays? Well Roald Dahl (who I just learned to pronounce correctly, “Roo-aal”) invented snozzcumbers for his non-human eating giant, you may remember these from the movie! An edible version for humans can be found in Roald Dahl’s revolting recipes, page 12 =)

And what’s been really popular over the holidays…?

Kids’ Club Review by Alice: Ballet backflip

Ballet backflipBallet backflip, by Meredith Costain (1955-)

I really like this book. The pictures are fun and cool. Ella, the main character of the book has a huge imagination and is friendly but sometimes does not get along with Peach who was her old friend but now is her enemy.
