Kids’ Club Review by Josie: Harry Potter and the cursed child

Harry Potter and the cursed childHarry Potter and the cursed child, by Jack Thorne

As a massave Harry Potter fan I really enjoyed this book as it showed all about Albus and Scorpius but I do think that it kind of ruins 19 years later from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as you know that Albus is a Slytherin. But overall I think The Cursed Child was a brilliant book!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is written as a play and is about Albus Potter who is put into Slytherin (a school house). He makes friends with Scorpius Malfoy. Together they find the last time turner in the wizarding world and they go back in time to try save Cedric Diggory. I really enjoyed this book because I am a big fan of Harry Potter. I would recommend this book for 9 plus.

Kids’ Club Review by Zahra: Harry Potter and the cursed child

Harry Potter and the cursed childHarry Potter and the cursed child, by Jack Thorne

This book is about Harry Potter but not just about him and his three friends. It’s about Harry Potter’s son Albus. Albus was put into Slytherin even though his dad was in Gryffindor. His friend is in Slytherin too. He is Malfoy’s son Scorpius.

I love this book because it is a play. This is the eighth story 19 years later, after Voldemort was destroyed. I liked all the characters.

I would recommend this book to people who enjoy plays and like Harry Potter stories.

Kids’ Club Review by Luke: Harry Potter and the cursed child

Harry Potter and the cursed childHarry Potter and the cursed child, by Jack Thorne

Harry Potter is now an overworked employee at the Ministry of Magic. His son Albus is in his forth year at Hogwarts and needs a time-turner so he can help Amos Diggiory get his son back, Cedric, who was killed by Voldemort in the Twizard Tournement. Does Albus achieve his goal? I rate this book five stars because it is a great play and a must read for all Harry potter fans. I think children 8+ should read this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Ava: Harry Potter and the cursed child

Harry Potter and the cursed childHarry Potter and the cursed child, by Jack Thorne

When Albus Potter overhears a secret conversation, he and his friend Scorpius have an adventure they’ll never forget. With time turners, friendship and family, their life is about to turn upside down!
HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD is a great read, except for the fact that it is a script, not a stoy. With complicated characters and their emotions, you should definitely check it out!

Kids’ Club Review by Hasini: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, by Jack Thorne
I thought this book was really good apart from the fact that the original author of the series didn’t actually come up with the idea. All the time changing stuff had a surprising coincidence. It was filled with really sneaky and surprising stuff, just like every other Harry Potter book. I love this book even though it’s written as a script unlike any other Harry Potter book.
