Kids’ Club Review by Robin: Small spaces

Small spacesSmall spaces, Katherine Arden

This book was terrifying. I started reading it and I actually couldn’t stop – I read the whole thing in one thing. It is about a girl who finds a book and then lots of the things in the book come true. I really liked It. 5 stars.

Kids’ Club Review by Suzannah: The stolen stars of Matariki

The stolen stars of MatarikiThe stolen stars of Matariki, written byMiriama Kamo ; illustrated by Zak Waipara

I liked this story because it has a happy ending.

This story is about two children going and seeing stars. The next night there are only seven Matariki stars instead of nine. The children get the stars back in the sky and take their eels home from fishing.

I would recommend this book to children who are six and seven years old.

Kids’ Club Review by Clara: Small spaces

I really enjoyed the book “small spaces,” and would definitely read it again.

My opinion would be that ages eleven and up would be suitable for reading the book, but i imagine that mature ten, and/or even nine year olds could read the book.
