In these delightfully humorous tales of a decidedly blackish hue, ten follysome toads can never change their beastly habits despite the efforts of goodly witch Madame Rana who reminds them ‘It’s never too late to change.’ The Toad With Square Eyes develops mutant thumbs and fingers and finds himself on the other side of the screen; Cherry Oddfellow, the Dirty Little Toad, is part-girl, part-mudslide; and Jeremiah Bratson, the Spoiled Little Toad, finds himself face-to-face with a perfect robot replica. Featuring toady facts, quizzes and games, this collection of tales is a warning to certain children that there must come an hour when they pay the price…

Kids’ Club Review by Avin: Rat Burger

Rat Burger, by David Williams

This is another amazing book by David Williams. After reading the book you should also check the movie out too. This book is about a girl with a wicked step mum that kills her first pet. The ending of the book is great since it is unpredictable. It is not scary at all since it is hilarious. Highly suggest this book to all ages. Very good book about friendships.

Can I eat that?Can I eat that?, by Joshua David Stein

I liked this book because I like eating lots of different food. Some of it was easy to read but there were some really hard words as well.

I really liked this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Arav: Charlie and the chocolate factory

Charlie and the chocolate factoryCharlie and the chocolate factory, by Roald Dahl

Love Love Love the book. I would recommend this book because it tells you about a good story that starts with a poor kid Charlie and turns into a star. This book is about five kids who win a chance to tour Willy Wonka’s mysterious candy-making operation. Every page was so exciting. I really liked the humour and the story had a good ending. I also liked the imaginary world inside Mr. Wonka’s factory. The hero Charlie was rewarded and the nasty spoiled children all got what they deserved. I loved the book and it also made me hungry for chocolates!
