Kids’ Club Review by Cardi: Glitter Bird

Glitter Bird, by Rosie Banks

I really liked this book when I read it. It is by a lady called Rosie Banks. Rosie Banks does not just write Secret Kingdom, she writes books like Secret Kingdom and Secret Princesses and lots more. In the story some girls ( called Ellie, Summer and Jasmine ) need to find a bird. That is why the story is called Glitter Bird. The bird sprinkles glitter. The bird has the power of friendship. But thanks to the bad person, the bird makes people fight! Help the girls and their friend Trixi stop the evil queen and her horrible sprites from getting the bird first! I really shall review more of Secret Kingdom and Secret Princess.

Kids’ Club Review by Rose: The Princess and the Foal

The Princess and the Foal, by Stacy Gregg

I was about 9 or 10 when my friend recommended this to me, and I loved it and bought my own copy. It is a beautiful story told in such wise words by the amazing Stacy Gregg.
It is about a young princess named Haya with a strong love for horses and a huge dream and potential. It is a book I’ll always remember as one of my favourites, and for its wonderful, inspiring and impressive story.
I would recommend this book not just to girls who love horses, but also to those who dream and strive, even if it seems impossible.

Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Ballet Dream

Ballet Dream, by Rosie Banks

I thought this book was quite adventurous . Of course in every Secret Princesses book , Princess Poison is spoiling wishes and making evil plans she thought was funny. But Mia and Charlotte defeated Princess Poison and her wicked plans are destroyed. Questions such as “How did you do that?” were always asked by the people who were being granted the wishes. I rate this book 5 stars because the character in the book showed bravery by saving the day and it teaches me to be brave when it comes to facing problem or disasters. I think you should read this book because it’s A – MAZING!

In this Secret Princesses adventure , Mia and Charlotte go to boarding school . A girl called Ashley meets them and tells them that she is really homesick . You guessed it . Princess Poison and her assistants Hex and EVA ( a robot ) are spoiling Ashley’s first day at boarding school . Will the girls save the day? Or will Princess Poison and her assistants get their way? Read this book to find out! I really enjoyed this book , it was funny and the description of the midnight feast makes my mouth watering. I recommend this book to ages 7 and up.

I so do love this book. It is about two girls called Charlotte and Mia. Mean Princess Poison puts a spell on a palace and on some princess and turns them to ice! Charlotte and Mia need to grant two girls their wishes. Those girls are called Bethany and Tyra. Will the girls save the day, or will Princess Poison get her way?

But the monster alarm rings so she has to go the secret cave and the monster are bunnies. They eat everything even trees. Would the Princess in Black defeat the bunnies?
