Kids’ Club Review by Holly: The wizard’s umbrella : story collection

The wizard's umbrella : story collectionThe wizard’s umbrella : story collection, by Enid Blyton

I LOVE this story collection thing. These stories are a mix of fantasy and real life, which make them even more exciting. The stories in this book are mostly short ones, only a few pages long. There are the other types of the story collections as well: There can be all the stories of a series in the same book, or there can be different, short stories in the same book, like this one. I reckon you should give these a go, because I think you’ll like them like I did.

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: The dark prophecy

The dark prophecyThe dark prophecy, by Rick Riordan

I LOVE this new series and I’m soooo impatient for when his next book comes out. Apollo and Meg are HILARIOUS together, and now that they’re going on a quest by themselves…… and well I can’t to see what happens next! I love this author, and my favourite series of his are the Percy Jackson series, and for anyone who hasn’t read those, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it. The Greek gods are so interesting, reading his books are like having a history lesson in an adventure story!

Kids’ Club Review by Francesca: The Minpins

The MinpinsThe Minpins, by Roald Dahl

The mani charachter is Little Billy who meets tiny people (The Minpins) who live in trees. They have wonderful adventures and tame birds for little Billy. There is a scarey monster that I didn’t like. The Minpins and the the story being in nature was my favourite bit. I like Roald Dahl. Good big print book with good illustrations. Recommend for ages 7 and up.
