The girl who wasn't thereThe girl who wasn’t there, Karen McCombie

This is a wonderful book written by Karen McCombie.I couldn’t put the book down once I started reading it as it has lots of suspense.Its about this girl called Maisie who doesn’t believe in ghosts.But when she starts at her new school there are rumours about a ghost who wanders in the hall.Together with her friend Kat , Maisie really wants to learn more about the school ghost.Then Kat comes across a photograph of something Maisie never expected to see.Read the book to find out what happens next .I think this book is suitable for girls in the age group 9-14.

Kids’ Club Review by Varsha: Demon dentist

Demon dentistDemon dentist, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

This is a hilarious book written by David Walliams.Its about this boy called Alfie who tries to stop an evil dentist called Miss Root who tries to take all the chlildrens teeth.
My most favourite character is Gabz because she is the first one who got suspicious of Miss Root’s behaviour..The part when Winnie a social worker accidentally ate some coffee flavoured chocolate and starts to fart is hilarious!This book would suit boys and girls in the age group 8-13.
