Kids’ Club Review by Irene: The Tea Dragon Society

The Tea Dragon SocietyThe Tea Dragon Society, written & illustrated by Katie O’Neill

I think the book “The Tea Dragon Society”is one of my favorite books because I love the works of Katie O’ Neil. I gave this book 5 stars because I think this book is a great resemblance of fantasy and friendship working together, but its hard to notice that there is fantasy because you would be focusing on the actual story but you still know that there is fantasy in the book.

Kids’ Club Review by Noel: King Ottokar’s sceptre

King Ottokar's sceptreKing Ottokar’s sceptre, Hergé ; [translated by Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper and Michael Turner]

I enjoyed this book because it was filled with mystery and adventure. This book is better because nearly at the end Tintin was happy because he solved another mystery it also had a little bit teamwork before the end where Tintin solved how the scepter got through the square barred windows.

Kids’ Club Review by Yuki: To Night Owl from Dogfish

To Night Owl from DogfishTo Night Owl from Dogfish, Holly Goldberg Sloan & Meg Wolitzer

To Night Owl – from Dog Fish
A story about two girls, Bett Devlin and Avery Bloom, whose dads fall in love. The only problem with that, is that at first, their daughters don’t want anything to do with each other. The girls try, try and try to prevent their dads from meeting again, but fail until a motorbike trip in China makes their dads realise that they are not made for each other. But, by then, their children have begun to understand each other very well to the point of becoming very good friends.
This story is written only in letters/Emails, though still very understandable. I like the style of this story, how letters alone can describe an incredibly detailed story to you.
A book for people who want to read something else.

5 stars
