Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Ever After High : Once Upon a Time

Ever After High : Once Upon a Time, by Shannon Hale

In fact, I thought it was a wonderful book! The author (Shannon Hale) as put a lot of detail in this book by doing a different story. She has changed all of the ever after’s first name but kept the last name. Sometimes, the ever after’s parents don’t have the last name so they add the last name as well as a first name. For example, Cedar Wood’s father is Pinocchio and he doesn’t have the last name so they make Cedar’s last name Wood. There are other people so if you read this book you will find out who they are. Overall, this was a good book but not up to my standard.

Kids’ Club Review by Tra An: Princess Cora and the crocodile

Princess Cora and the crocodile, by Laura Amy Schlitz


Princess Cora: I like her the best because she’s brave and hopeful.
Queen: Smart and bossy
King: Athletical
Nanny: she likes everything to be neat and is also bossy.
Crocodile: Playful and not good at sport.

Plot: Princess Cora didn’t like having 3 barth per day reading law books and skip. oNE DAY she wanted a dog but her parents & nanny didn’t let her have one. She asked her fairy godmother but instead got a crocodile. Princess Cora wanted a day of so the crocodile pretended to be her, and princess got to do whatever she wanted to do. Everything went terrible and princess cora had to explain. Then she said she didn’t want to go back to her old life, and after she confessed that she only wanted 2 barth per day sometimes read nonfiction or fiction and skip now and then.

My opinion: I think this book is fun to read exciting adventures and cool. This book describe the Characters really well.

I would Recommend this book to: 7 year olds or older and people who like princess or crocodiles.

Dork Diaries: Dear Dork, by Rachel Renee Russell

Another amazing book of the Dork Diary series. It’s funny since I haven’t read the books in order so sometimes I get really confused. I totally recommend reading the series! If you like having a good laugh then this is the perfect book for you!
