Kids’ Club Review by Leela: The enchanted wood

The enchanted woodThe enchanted wood, by Enid Blyton

It’s so funny because Moon Face talks so silly with the toffee in his mouth! And it also slightly annoyed me when Joe got taken off the ladder but mostly I found it funny. And I was a little bit annoyed when everybody got a piece of the toffee before Moon Face gained his item. I’m halfway through the book and looking forward to finishing it.

Kids’ Club Review by Leela: Bella’s backyard bullies

Bella's backyard bulliesBella’s backyard bullies, by Samantha Turnbull

This is a quite good book. The Vernon brothers really really upset me when I didn’t realise the reason they were attacking the girls, until I found out why. I liked that the girls tried to fight back. My favourite part was how they got the Vernons to build the treehouse with them.

Kids’ Club Review by Leela: Cruise control

Cruise controlCruise control, by Samantha Turnbull

This is a great book because it shows how important it is to not throw rubbish into the sea. And all the four people of the anti-princess club have their own chapters in the book. And all of the anti-princess club books show that children can do anything they like and be anything they want to be.

Kids’ Club Review by Margaret: The honeymoon sisters

The honeymoon sistersThe honeymoon sisters, by Gwyneth Rees

This book was a brilliant book about a girl who is finding it hard to get along with her new foster sister and cousin.
I love it and it has so much plot and you can see the characters developing over the story.
The main character, Poppy found it hard to get along with her foster sister/cousin, Sadie at first but then she discovers some secrets about Sadie and feels sorry for her. Sadie is very strong willed and badly behaved but acts all goody goody to Poppy’s mum at first.
But Sadie doesn’t stay like that forever…
I would totally recomened this book

I felt as if I was stepping right into the book! It was full of adventure and mystery. Amy is my favorite character. She was amazing at wrestling and her feather dusty was funny. I recommend this would be a good book for year 4 and 5 s and I rate this book 4 stars!!
