Kids’ Club Review by Jiya: Bollywood burglary

Bollywood burglaryBollywood burglary, Geronimo Stilton

I liked how they did dances in the movie. They had to give more detail about what happened in the story. I got this book because it sounded interesting. First half was easy and second half was hard because the words were getting longer and there were silent letters in words.

Kids’ Club Review by Nora: Thea Stilton and the great tulip heist

Thea Stilton and the great tulip heistThea Stilton and the great tulip heist, by Thea Stilton

I like this book because the Thea sisters keep on having to face challenges and in the middle of the story there is a problem they have to solve. My favourite part is when the Thea sisters and Jan have to figure out what the Black Tulip is and where the precious tulip bulb that Jan’s father made is hidden. I gave this book 4 stars because at the end of the second chapter there is a sudden mystery and I like books with mysteries and adventures.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it took me into another world and it really got me thinking about the mystery. I especially like Margo’s personality because she does whatever she pleases and doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do. I would recommend this book for anyone that likes mysteries and fun characters.

This book was a great but easy read, the fire in the start of the book made the mystery start from the very first page! Honey sounded very cute, and I really felt sorry for mr Swenson when he was arrested! Ned Nickerson was a great addition to the characters as well!

I love the mystery in this book, I also liked guessing what had happened in the mystery. Is a bit old fashioned but really good anyway. I would recommend this book to 9-12 year olds.
