This is a very funny and happy read. It is all about children in a hospital and what they get up to when the lights are out! Life can be boring in the hospital and they manage to make an amazing team using all their abilities. If you need cheering up, then this is the book for you.

Kids’ Club Review by Tulip: Maisy goes to the movies

Maisy goes to the moviesMaisy goes to the movies, by Lucy Cousins

I liked this book because the pictures are really bright and colourful. This story is about how Maisy goes to the movie with its friends. I really liked the end because they dont know what to watch and the elephant says we can watch it again. Whats your favorite part?……
