Kids’ Club Review by Jodie: Adventures in puzzle world

Adventures in Puzzle World, by Susannah Leigh

This book is about eight puzzles in one and the one I like the best out of all of the puzzles is puzzle ocean.

I liked it because there are lots of puzzles in one and I like solving them all and I like the pictures.

Kids’ Club Review by Brooke: Puzzle farm

It was really good because I liked finding the 5 purple mice and patch on every page. My favourite page was Stone Steps and Tangled Puppies. I think I will try the series again.

5 stars

Kids’ Club Review by Zahra: Puzzle mountain

Puzzle mountainPuzzle mountain, by Susannah Leigh

This book has a lot of puzzles. It is hard to do the puzzles but it is fun.

You have to solve puzzles like spot the differences, finding people, and mazes. They all have to do with the mountain and nothing else.

I liked this book because I was able to solve a lot of puzzles. I was laughing when I was trying to do the puzzles quicker than my mum.

I would recommend this book to people of all ages.

5 stars

Top 10 Children’s fiction December 2016

Alan MacDonald is in the Top 10 again with his Dirty Bertie series. Stuck for things to do in the holidays? Then this page was made for you (Dirty Bertie fans only!).

The Dirtie Bertie author honed his skills writing and performing for children in a travelling theatre troupe that visited schools.  Having an audience that threw paper at you when they were bored quickly showed him what kids like and dislike! Alan MacDonald has a page on his site dedicated to the drawings that children send him.  Do you have access to a scanner? We have one at the library if you don’t. You could send him a picture yourself !
