Kids’ Club Review by cardi: Worlds collide

Worlds collideWorlds collide, Chris Colfer ; illustrated by Brandon Dorman

I really liked this book. It is about Alexandra/Alex and Conner Bailey, as they begin to fight the army i talked about in an author’s odyssey. But, as i also said at the end of an author’s odyssey, Alex has turned bad. with some difficulty, Conner brakes the curse and they live happily ever after in the land of stories. I recommend this book to 7 and over. This is the last and final book in the series.

An author's odysseyAn author’s odyssey, Chris Colfer ; illustrated by Brandon Dorman

I really liked this book. It is about Alexandra/Alex and Conner. They are friends with the fairy tale world, known as the Land of Stories, and their Uncle Lloyd, who people know as the masked man, has taken over the land of stories! He has found a spell, and has taken out bad characters out of books to help him! He took Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, and the Wicked Witch of the West and the pirates, card solders, and winged monkeys from the stories as well! Then the bad guys turn against the masked man, and drop him. Know there new commander is a witch, called Morina. The plan Morina has is to capture the other world! While making plans, Conner and Alex have found out and are going into Conner’s short stories and getting there armies to fight, like pirates from the story Starbodia, robots from the story Galaxy Queen, superheros from the Ziblings and mummies from the adventures of Blimp Boy. Then they get attacked by there Uncle Lloyd, and Alex turns bad. I recommend this book for seven and over to read, and am so ratting this with 5 stars. I love Chris Colfer’s books.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The lightning thief ; The sea of monsters ; The titan’s curse, by Rick Riordan

The book the Lightning thief started of predictable, but then it became impossible to predict what would happen next. My favourite two characters were Percy Jackson because he started off like a normal kid. He’s got some needs like I have which is dyslexia. He’s really unpredictable about what he is going to do. And, he is courageous. My next character I liked was Luke because I like a bit of betrayal in the story. He was my favourite ultimate bad guy. I also liked Ares because he’s into war and good with the blade (but not as good as Percy!). My favourite two parts of the book were when Percy Jackson destroyed the Minotaur and the battle between Ares and Percy Jackson.

Kids’ Club Review by Stephen: Poseidon : earth shaker

Poseidon : earth shakerPoseidon : earth shaker, by George O’Connor

Poseidon: earth shaker tells the story of how Poseidon became god of the sea. The book is a comic and has lots of monsters in it.
The book has cool comic pictures and tells you about the Greek myths which are usually hard to understand.
I recommend this book to people who like their history and like comics.

Percy Jackson : the complete series, by Rick Riordan

it was a really good series to read my favorite book was percy jackson and the lightning thief. the plot was really good and it was a really big shock that so and so was on the other side to percy jackson ( i am not revealing so and so’s name because it would ruin the plot.
my favorite character is Annabeth because she is so mentally strong and trustworthy.
