Kids’ Club Review by Connor: Mummy Cat

Mummy CatMummy Cat, by Marcus Ewert

I read this book with my nana when she was babysitting me, and I found it really interesting. I loved most the mysterious ending when the cat was asleep next to his true loves coffin. It ended with the arm coming out of the coffin but didn’t say what happened next! It was amazing….

Kids’ Club Review by Gabriella: A cupcake conundrum

A cupcake conundrumA cupcake conundrum, by Kate Pankhurst

A cupcake conundrum’ was a fantastic book! My favourite character is Mariella because Violet is so shy and Poppy seems a bit boring. Arthur was helpful in this book, but I still found him annoying. Mariella is the leader and she is good at putting together disguises and coming up with ideas.

I would recommend this book to my friends, but actually, it was one of my friends that recommended the series to me! Girls would like it, and I reccomend people ages 7-10 reading the series.

Kate Pankhurst, the author, is great at coming up with creative mysteries, for example, the first mystery, the ghostly guinea pig. She also comes up with good explanations.
I’ve only read 2 of her books, but that’s more than enough to say she’s fabulous at writing, dreaming up characters, and putting together a slap-up story!

With it’s beautiful illustrations , fascinating ideas, and great characters, Mariella Mystery investigates: A cupcake conundrum, is a FABULOUS book! With every page, you’ll be begging for more! Come on! Read it! You know you want to…

They went to the Professor Wills to look in the telescope so they could look at planet jupiter but then there was a little problem so they went with other people to help. I liked it because they solved the bad bit so it ended happily ever after.

Good old Secret SevenGood old Secret Seven, by Enid Blyton

Enid is an excellent writer but I can see why some people would not like this book.Enid’s previous books I have read were excellent like the wishing chair, famous five and the faraway tree, but this book isn’t like them. You see the other books have a bit of humor and make you want to laugh but this book doesn’t.I think that the book would have been a bit more of a success if one on the secret 7 was a bit sarcastic and goofy.I mean yea the is Susie the annoying one but she is annoying not funny.This book is very adventurous and gets you wondering.It is very entertaining but a slight let down at the same time.I would recommend it to some of my friends but all.

Kids’ Club Review by Frankie: Bunnicula : a rabbit-tale of mystery

Bunnicula : a rabbit-tale of mystery, by Deborah Howe (d. 1979)

Good book… I enjoyed it. It was a fun and creepy mystery… It was pretty odd, and the series was a little foggy… The whole plot was very complicated yet simple…. It was almost like a new story,yet it was same old same old…

I’ve read lot’s of thrillers and mysteries so this was pretty normal to me, but it wasn’t.

Interesting
