Kids’ Club Review by Joshua: Dragon Masters series, books 1-8

Dragon Masters series, books 1-8, by Tracey West

I like Dragon Masters because I like the characters. Drake is one of the characters and he is in all the books. The first book is called Rise of the Earth Dragon and Drake didn’t believe in dragons at first but one day he met an earth dragon and he named it Worm, Worm is my favourite Dragon, and he can move things with the power of his mind. They are interesting books.

Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: The Giraffe and The Pelly and Me

The Giraffe and The Pelly and Me, by Roald Dahl

This was an excellent book! The rhymes makes sense in the book and I could imagine being in the book. There is a shop called The Grubber which was for sail but then a giraffe, a pelly and a monkey bought it! They are called the Ladderless Window Cleaning Company because they don’t need a ladder, the giraffe is one! I recommend this book to a wide range of ages.

Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Ever After High: Kiss and Spell

Ever After High: Kiss and Spell, by Suzanne Selfors

This was an awesome book. I decided to take this book out because I really liked Shannon Hale’s Ever After High’s books. I think Shannon Hale and Suzanne Selfors did a collaboration because they both have written Ever After High books so…. maybe they planned who should write which? Anyways, in this book is all about daughter of the Candy Witch (Ginger Breadhouse) She had a hard time growing up because in her kindergarten, her mum signed up for snack duty and she bought these yellow cookies with smiley faces on them and the teacher (Sister Goose) recognized that she was the Candy Witch, not Ms. Breadhouse (The name she introduced herself). From that day on, nobody invited her to birthday parties and requests for playdates stopped. She became lonely at recess and lunch. From reading this book, I felt quite sad for Ginger. Overall, I loved this book and I will be reserving many more.
