Kids’ Club Review by Jasmine: Wonder

WonderWonder, R.J. Palacio

I love this book it is just a wonderful storyline and I like how it tells it from different people’s perspective. At some points of the book it just super sad and others it really happy. I can really tell R. J. Palacio put so much emotion into writing it.

Kids’ Club Review by Jasmine: Fing

FingFing, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

This book is amazing, I couldn’t put it down when I read the first word, ( witch was The in case you forgot ). The storyline sort of make you think one thing and then Suddenly it’s another thing. I really like all the monsters Mr Walliams thought of like the Honkopotamas or a Loood. Everything is just so hilarious, even Mr and Mrs Meek.
The book is like Dr. Seuss meeting Roald Dahl.

Kids’ Club Review by Jasmine: The haunting

The hauntingThe haunting, Margaret Mahy

This book sounds scary at first, but it isn’t actually. I rate it 5 stars because it’s got really funny characters from scared Barney to his sister the chatterbox Tabitha. Magicians and families what could happen next? But then when Barney gets followed by what seems to be a ghost It’s Troy the oldest who finds out what’s actually happening.

Kids’ Club Review by Jasmine: The mapmakers’ race

The mapmakers' raceThe mapmakers’ race, Eirlys Hunter

A brilliant book, adventurous storyline, I really liked the characters. It felt like I was floating into a whole new world. It was like when Alice in Wonderland said: “Curiouser and curiouser.” That was exactly how I felt. And to think some people think being children they wouldn’t win the race. (Hmph). Treacherous storms, falling off cliffs this book was a world where anything could happen.
