Kids’ Club Review by Holly: Are we there yet?

Are we there yet?Are we there yet?, by Enid Blyton

At the start I wasn’t so sure about this book, but then as I read on, it got more and more likeable and enjoyable by every page! I love these, “series” books, because then you don’t have to go and get five different books out from the library if you want to read the whole series, instead you can just keep reading on to the next book when you’ve finished the first one. I’ve got a whole pile of Enid’s books at home to read and I can’t wait to get started on them!

Camping is not very ooh la la!Camping is not very ooh la la!, by Poppy Harper

I really enjoyed reading this book. I think the pictures are really nice. In this book Masie Mae is going to France on a holiday with her entire family. On the way she meets a famous movie star and they become good friends. I would recommend this book to readers aged 5-10
