Kids’ Club Review by Gaurav: Granny McFlitter, the champion knitter

Granny McFlitter, the champion knitterGranny McFlitter, the champion knitter, Heather Haylock ; (illustrated by Lael Chisholm)

This was a great book and I liked how Granny Mcflitter went on weaving no matter what. The funny part was when Granny Mcflitter made nets out of wool, made jumpers for the penguins and helped all the vets by making stuff for all animals in the zoo. She had a weird thing about making stuff even though they had more than enough of it.

I love how this book takes a library and adds exciting and new adventures that wouldn’t normally happen. Like when they have to venture into the Monsterpedia and the jungle! I love how David Walliams makes books so funny and exciting. I would rate this book a 10/10 as its so funny, exciting and has great illustrations.

Kids’ Club Review by Lily: Wonder

WonderWonder, R.J. Palacio

I think wonder was an inspiring story with a great message. It taught me to never judge a book by its cover because someone might look a certain way but be different on the inside. I think August was a strong and inspiring character. I think the story shows us what the true power of kindness can do and how a little kindness can make a big difference. I would rate the book a 10/10 and I’m definitely going to read the second one!

Klawde : evil alien warlord catKlawde : evil alien warlord cat, by Johnny Marciano and Emily Chenoweth ; illustrated by Robb Mommaerts

I thought it was a very funny book, and original too because usually cat are NOT evil alien space warlords! It reminds me a tiny bit of Garfield because of what he is like to Odie! I have one very important warning though: DO NOT read this to your cat. We don’t want them getting the wrong idea, do we…

Kids’ Club Review by Stella: Fing

FingFing, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

This was a very funny book. I really like how there was a very dramatic ending. Fing is about a very meek married couple, Mr. Meek and Mrs. Meek. They had a daughter named Myrtle, who was an absolute horror! She demanded lots and lots of things, and her meek parents didn’t refuse. She had something for each letter of the alphabet! On her tenth birthday, she demanded a ‘fing’. When Myrtle was at school (poor teachers! And students. And principle!) the Meeks went to their place of work, the library! They searched and searched, but, with no luck, went down to the secret vault. They found out that the Fing was a monster! Mr Meek went on an expedition to find one. And I’m going to let you find out what happened from there…

Kids’ Club Review by Stella: Auggie & me : three Wonder stories

Auggie & me : three Wonder storiesAuggie & me : three Wonder stories, R.J. Palacio

I enjoyed it because it had different perspectives throughout the book. It is about three different kids perspective on Auggie, who has something different about his face, but he is still nice and funny. The first person to ‘talk’ is Auggie’s old best friend, who moved away. The second one is a girl named Charlotte, who was asked by the principal to show Auggie around. The third and final person is Julian, a boy who bullied Auggie. At the end of the book, Julian realises Auggie for who he is, not just what he looks like, but the school year is finished. Julian is moving to the suburbs, and never gets to see Auggie again.

Kids’ Club Review by Finn: Fing

FingFing, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

Fing is a fantastic book by David Walliams. This book was very amusing, funny and humorous book.
Fing is about a little girl, who always wants more no matter how much she gets. She then runs out of ideas of what she could get, so she just says, “I WANT A FING!”(Who knew a small girl could cause such a racket?)(Poor parents.)
I highly recommend this book to all keen chapter book readers.

Kids’ Club Review by Victor: Fing

FingFing, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

It was action packed. What is exactly a FING? it is a small or big fluffy creature that has one eye and two holes, so you never know which side you are supposed to feed it. Also it can do a poo two times the size of it. The book is also about a little girl named Myrtle who had everything in the world but wanted one more fing. ps, there is a free custard cream inside!
