Kids’ Club Review by Isla: Max & the Midknights

Max & the MidknightsMax & the Midknights, Lincoln Peirce

This book is about some kids that were pretending to be knights. They called themselves the Midknights. My favourite part was when zombies came out of gravestones. I was a bit nervous because I wasn’t sure if they would be alright.

Kids’ Club Review by Eve: The worst book ever

The worst book everThe worst book ever, Elise Gravel

This book is about an orange spider and two other things. I like its title, because it says “the worst”. The thing I like about is: it is a fairy tale, a funny one. And I like the monster. I also like the prince’s t-shirt because in half of the book it says “I love hot dogs” and in the second half, it says “I love hamburgers”. And I did not think the prince was going to kill the monster. Also, during the story, two characters were playing chess.

This book turned out be better than I thought. The storyline was amazing and the story written just too good.I don’t recommend any age to read it as I didn’t find anything creepy or scary about this.

This is a complicated book as it is told by different characters in it and it is a puzzle. Its about a magical world where everyone has a talent. Cady’s talent is cake baking. Cady is an orphan and goes on a mysterious journey to a mysterious house. The house holds important clues to her past. I really liked this book as it was well written and you wanted to find out what happens in the end.

Barney Palmer is 8 years old and he finds out that a person in each generation of his family has supernatural powers and that he might actually be this person. Barney thinks that he is being haunted by his dead uncle and his sister Tabitha is determined to help him out. I really enjoyed this book although it was scary in places. It is well written and it is also a NZ book.

This book is a puzzle. Everyone has a special talent. Cady (an orphan) , for example, has a talent for cake making. Her destiny leads her to a mysterious house that has a family of kids searching for their special talent, an old recipe, lost luggage, and a talent thief.
This house and its encounters may lead Cady to understand her past. I enjoyed this book as it is magical and gripping to read.
