Kids’ Club Review by Tulip: Bad dad

Bad dadBad dad, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

My opinion about this book is that it is amazing! Its about a very strong relationship between father and son. A book full of drama , suspense, and adventure will lead you to find out how father and son reunited after Gilbert, (the dad, ) was sent to prison when it was not even his fault. In this book a good dad turned into a bad dad for a good cause. What did he do? Well read Bad Dad by David Walliams NOW!

Kids’ Club Review by Tulip: Oscar the hungry unicorn

Oscar the hungry unicornOscar the hungry unicorn, Lou Carter, [illustrated by] Nikki Dyson

I LOVED this book ( IT HAS A UNICORN)! I’m obsessed with unicorns and I thought that this book was perfect for me. I wish I could keep this book but it was the library’s. The illustrations of this book was amazing! All magical and rainbow. This story is about Oscar The Hungry Unicorn. He basically eats everything , From LED lights to Bridges! I think this would be a great book For Unicorn lovers.

Kids’ Club Review by Tulip: There’s a tui in our teapot = he tūi kei rō tipata

There's a tui in our teapot = he tūi kei rō tipataThere’s a tui in our teapot = he tūi kei rō tipata, Dawn McMillan ; illustrated by Nikki Slade Robinson ; te reo Māori by Ngarere Roberts

I really liked this book with the adorable illustrations of not just the Tui, but all of these amazing birds. It a story like a poem. The good thing about this is that it is in English and Maori on the same page so many people can read it. I really like the cover because its really cute. I recommend this book to anyone who would like a good night story.

Kids’ Club Review by Tulip: Meltdown

MeltdownMeltdown, by Jeff Kinney

Finally i have read the Latest book of Jeff Kinney’s diary of a wimpy kid series. i always wait for these books every year and when I saw it in my school library on the last day, I was super excited. This book is about basically global warming and a few more issues related to nowaday real life. I do NOT recommend this book to adults because they will get highly influenced with things to ruin us children’s life :).
