Kids’ Club Review by Holly: Three cups of tea

Three cups of teaThree cups of tea, by Sarah Thomson

I was hooked on this book from the first page. I wasn’t so sure about it at first but it is a very inspiring book, and I recommend age 9+ to read it. It is about how this guy called Greg Mortenson climbs the second highest mountain in the world, and on the way down he takes a wrong turn, and ends up in a town called Korphe, and he sees the way they teach their children, which is outside, and sometimes in the rain and cold wind, and he doesn’t like it, so he decides to build a school for the village’s children.

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: Binny bewitched

Binny bewitchedBinny bewitched, by Hilary McKay

This is a new series for me, I liked it but it was just very stressful to read, and that was a problem for me. There was a bit at the end that I didn’t understand, and that’s why I’ve rated it 2 stars. If you are going to read this book though, I would recommend ages 8+ to read it.

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: Brer Rabbit story collection

Brer Rabbit story collectionBrer Rabbit story collection, by Enid Blyton

Like I’ve said in another review, I LOVE these story collections. But I didn’t like this one as much because of the old fashioned language in it. The whole book was little stories about Brer Rabbit and how he plays funny tricks on his friends/frenimies, and they play tricks on him. I was just getting a little bored, it was like tricks tricks and more tricks and nothing else! Most of the tricks were funny, but some of them were based on another storyline that Enid has written.

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: The wizard’s umbrella : story collection

The wizard's umbrella : story collectionThe wizard’s umbrella : story collection, by Enid Blyton

I LOVE this story collection thing. These stories are a mix of fantasy and real life, which make them even more exciting. The stories in this book are mostly short ones, only a few pages long. There are the other types of the story collections as well: There can be all the stories of a series in the same book, or there can be different, short stories in the same book, like this one. I reckon you should give these a go, because I think you’ll like them like I did.

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: Are we there yet?

Are we there yet?Are we there yet?, by Enid Blyton

At the start I wasn’t so sure about this book, but then as I read on, it got more and more likeable and enjoyable by every page! I love these, “series” books, because then you don’t have to go and get five different books out from the library if you want to read the whole series, instead you can just keep reading on to the next book when you’ve finished the first one. I’ve got a whole pile of Enid’s books at home to read and I can’t wait to get started on them!

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: The dark prophecy

The dark prophecyThe dark prophecy, by Rick Riordan

I LOVE this new series and I’m soooo impatient for when his next book comes out. Apollo and Meg are HILARIOUS together, and now that they’re going on a quest by themselves…… and well I can’t to see what happens next! I love this author, and my favourite series of his are the Percy Jackson series, and for anyone who hasn’t read those, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it. The Greek gods are so interesting, reading his books are like having a history lesson in an adventure story!

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: Sorry about me

Sorry about meSorry about me, by Laura Dockrill

I really like this series now, Darcy is very imaginative and creative, and I love the mix of drama and the way that she sees the world, which is noticing all the little quirky, weird, and mostly funny things about people and the way people live and do things.I can’t wait to read her next book!
