Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Stage fright on a summer night

Stage fright on a summer nightStage fright on a summer night, by Mary Pope Osborne

This book was a exciting book because Jack and Annie get to go to England , and they meet William Shakespeare! One of the greatest authors!! They also see Queen Elizabeth !! When I was reading on the page of Queen Elizabeth it said that she wore a red wig and she had black teeth! She got black teeth because she ate too much sugar . I learned about at school that if you eat too much sugar you will die . So be careful of making choices of eating too much sugar . Overall , I liked this adventure in the Magic Tree House Series and I am definitely continuing the series till im finished all of the series .

Kids’ Club Review by Ethan: The wonderful Wizard of Oz

The wonderful Wizard of OzThe wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum (1856-1919,)

This book is a combination of excitement and suspense. This book has a plot that is easy to understand. The author made some creative characters, for example, the author has introduced flying monkeys and other creatures to the story. This is a perfect book for a 7-year-old. The Wizard of Oz is the best book for avid readers.

This is a very exciting book that varies from magic animals, known as farmiliars, to demon hunters. When you read it, you almost want to be sucked right into the book! I reccomend this book for 10 years and older.

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 molly: The weirdstone of Brisingamen : a tale of Alderley

The weirdstone of Brisingamen : a tale of AlderleyThe weirdstone of Brisingamen : a tale of Alderley, by Alan Garner (1934-)

Colin and Susan were pursued over the Alderly moor by mythical monsters. They were saved by a wizard with the strange name of Cadelin Silverbrow. Cadelin Silverbrow watches over 140 sleeping knights who will wake up and defeat evil. But Cadelin Silverbrow has lost the weirdstone of Brisingamen which stops the knights from ageing. Will they find the weirdstone of Brisingamen? I rate this 5 stars because it is gripping and exciting. I think children 9+ should read this book.
