The volume of possible endings : Dorrity’s tale in five parts, by Barbara Else

This was my favourite book out of the rest of them (The Travelling Restaurant, The Queen and the Nobody Boy and The Knot Impossible.)Dority my favourite character as well as the main character makes friends with metal boy. They both get captured but also both escapes together but Dority gets captured again and metal boy gets put in prison. They both make as well as get a daring rescue. This book was a great book everyone should be able to read it.

Grandad's wheeliesGrandad’s wheelies, by Jack Lasenby

Jack loves to visit his grandparents as they have great stories. For example, his granddad claims to have dug to China. I liked this story as it is based in NZ and is funny, easy to read, and his grandparents are very likeable. Children 6+ would really enjoy reading this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Luke: Peace Warriors

Peace Warriors, by Raymond Huber

This book is about people from the NZ and also the world who have stood up for what they believe in in a non-violent way. For example, a village in France saved thousands of Jews from being killed during WWII. This is an inspiring book about real people. It would be a great resource for my school.

This book is about people who fight against war in a peaceful way. These are people who have said ‘no’ and have saved many lives. I liked this book as I really enjoy non-fiction and I learnt a lot about brave people. Children 8+ would also like to read this book.
