Kids’ Club Review by Eleanor: Rosie and the secret friend

Rosie’s secret friend is cool. It was kind of Rosie to tidy up Louisa’s bedroom. I like white rose cottage. The roses are not white, the house is white and the roses are all different colours of the rainbow. I recommend this book for children who like fairies.

This book is really funny and actually has a good moral to it and the moral is to never to something bad because if u do it will come back and bite u back. I recommened this book to everybody.

When Alex and Conner get given an old fairy-tale book by their grandmother, Alex is delighted. When it starts glowing and humming, Alex is curious.Suddenly she is thrown (with Conner in tow.) into a world of fairy tales and magic. How will they get home? I really liked this book because it was interesting and exciting. I recommend it to children 10+.

Kids’ Club Review by samuel: Wundersmith : the calling of Morrigan Crow

Wundersmith : the calling of Morrigan CrowWundersmith : the calling of Morrigan Crow, Jessica Townsend

I really enjoyed reading Wundersmith. The story starts straight after ‘Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow’ finishes and is all about what happens when she is at the Wunderous Society College. My favourite character, other than Morrigan, is Cadence because she helps destroy the museum of stolen moments.

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: One Christmas wish

One Christmas wishOne Christmas wish, Katherine Rundell ; illustrated by Emily Sutton

This book is about a boy called Theo on Christmas Eve. He is left with a babysitter. Theo opens a box of decorations and they all come alive. Theo’s adventures begin. I loved this story. We read it at school and my entire class was so quiet as we wanted to know how it ended. It was full of magic and Christmas cheer. I loved it.

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: The crooked sixpence

The crooked sixpenceThe crooked sixpence, Jennifer Bell

This book is about a girl called Ivy and her brother Seb. Their grandmother breaks her hip and goes to hospital. When they return to her house, there were lots of people there looking for something. Ivy and Seb then see a feather write a message on the kitchen wall and they end up in a crazy world called Lundinor, where normal things have special powers. This is a fantastic book as it has evil, mystery, and adventure in it. I really enjoyed reading this book and found it very hard to put down.
