Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: The Giraffe and The Pelly and Me

The Giraffe and The Pelly and Me, by Roald Dahl

This was an excellent book! The rhymes makes sense in the book and I could imagine being in the book. There is a shop called The Grubber which was for sail but then a giraffe, a pelly and a monkey bought it! They are called the Ladderless Window Cleaning Company because they don’t need a ladder, the giraffe is one! I recommend this book to a wide range of ages.

Kids’ Club Review by Eden: Trickiest Stories

Trickiest Stories, by Paul Jennings

I really enjoyed reading this. I read it in a day and then read it over and over again. It has so much detail and it was so easy to make a picture in my mind of what was happening. It is such an amazing book. I wish that I didn’t have to return it to the library.

Kids’ Club Review by Thomas: The 104- Storey Tree House

The 104- Storey Tree House, by Andy Griffiths

If you like humor then you’ll love this book (and series)! In this book it’s impossible to be bored because there are millions of things to do including fridge throwing, money making or having a bun fight. My favourite part is when there are 100 bears throwing fridges at Andy, Terry and Jill!!!
