Kids’ Club Review by Molly Morgan: The hobbit : or, There and back again

The hobbit : or, There and back againThe hobbit : or, There and back again, by J. R. R. Tolkien ; illustrated by David Wenzel ; adapted by Charles Dixon with Sean Deming

The Hobbit is about a journey of a hobbit called Bilbo to kill a dragon. He joins a band of dwarves and a wizard. On the way they have many adventures. I found this book a little bit hard to read but will try again when I am older. It is a classic.

5 stars

Top Ten Children’s Comics March 2017

 

So… library borrowers are big fans of Snoopy and Charlie Brown!

Did you know that there is a museum dedicated to Charles M. Schulz the Charlie Brown creator!  Snoopy was based on his childhood pet dog Spike. At the museum there is a mural showing the way Spike became the Snoopy character we all recognise today.
