No Gun For Asmir, by Christobel Mattingley

I thought this was a very cool book. It is about a boy named Asmir who lives in Sarajevo. When war arrives, his father is taken from him. He escapes from Sarajevo and becomes a refugee. I loved reading this book and would recommend it for anyone aged between 9 and 11.

Kids’ Club Review by Margaret: Girls in tears by jacqueline wilson

Girls in tears, by Jacqueline wilson

Girls in tears by jacqueline wilson is an amazing novel and the fourth book in a wonderful series.
In the book series you follow the story of Ellie, her friends and her boyfriend. In this book however is about when Ellie falls out with her friends and her boyfriend, and her dad and step mum are falling out too. Her friend Magda is upset about her hamster dying and her friend Nadine is mad at every one going on at her about how dating a boy online is not safe.
It kept me really hooked the whole time and I kept wanting to find out what was gonna happen next.

Kids’ Club Review by Dante: Horrid Henry

Horrid HenryHorrid Henry, by Francesca Simon

Henry has a lot of attitude. But when Henry tries to be good his brother, Peter, can’t stand it. There are lots of funny parts in the story.

My favourite character is Henry because he does lots of silly things, like splashing people with his water gun. Another funny thing is that Henry does is be silly with the vacuum cleaner and sucks up everyone’s clothes.

I dislike Margaret because she is very moody and not nice. She never lets the boys get the good stuff too.

I learnt that having a bad attitude is a bad thing and no one likes a bad attitude.

I think everyone should read Horrid Henry books because they might like them as much as I did. I rate it four stars!
