Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Rooftoppers

RooftoppersRooftoppers, Katherine Rundell

This book hooked me into an extremely exciting as well as thoughtful story. I really enjoyed reading this fascinating adventure about a curious girl called Sophie and her guardian (the person who found her floating in a cello case in the middle of the English Channel), Charles. A very grumpy woman and perfectionist called Miss Eliot says that ‘trousers are for boys, not girls’. There are so many comments you can tell Miss Eliot about that comment. But, when Charles receives a letter from Miss Eliot’s brother about a single man raising a young lady who is not at all related to him, is absolutely unsuitable, they both run away to Paris, France. Where lies unleash and a proper adventure begins. Read this book to find out more about this exciting adventure!

Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: The thief lord

The thief lordThe thief lord, Cornelia Funke

Twelve years old, Prosper and five years old, Boniface are brothers being pursued by Victor Getz, a private detective. The boys’ aunt and uncle, Esther, and Max Hartlieb want to find Boniface (Bo for short) to adopt him because the boys’ mother passed away. They only wanted to adopt angelic Bo, and they intend to send Prosper away to boarding school because they believe Prosper is too old to be adopted. Read the book for more! This is a wonderful book and I recommend any age can read this.
