The ice sea piratesThe ice sea pirates, by Frida Nilsson (1979-)

When her sister Miki gets kidnapped, her sister is faced with the task of finding her. Unfortunately some pirates have taken Miki and to find her. her sister is going to have to go to sea. This is a truly well written book that is a pleasure to read. I recommend this book to children 8+.

Kids’ Club Review by Molly: The great piratical rumbustification ; &, The librarian and the robbers

The great piratical rumbustification ; &, The librarian and the robbersThe great piratical rumbustification ; &, The librarian and the robbers, by Margaret Mahy

This book contains two stories. The Terrapins need a babysitter and call up a babysitting agency. What they get is a one-legged naval officer and a pirate party. In the second story a librarian is kidnapped and the only thing that will save her is raging measles. I loved this book, it was funny and the stories were completely crazy. Young children will also enjoy this book.

Two brilliant stories about a pirate baby sitter and a kidnapped librarian. The stories are both funny and well written and I enjoyed them both. This book is suitable for young children who are learning to read but older children would still find them amusing.

Kids’ Club Review by Helena: Ice Sea Pirates

Ice Sea Pirates, by Frida Nilsson

Captain Whitebeard is a grumpy old man with a very cold heart and a white beard. The only thing he wants is children. This story is exciting and action packed I love that I recommend it for ages 7+.

I love how the library and teaches the robbers how to behave properly it’s interesting to see how the rubbers react to what the librarian has told them it’s one of my favourite stories ever. I also love the pictures are amazing that’s my report
