Kids’ Club Review by Sammy: Fantastic Mr Fox

Fantastic Mr Fox, by Roald Dahl

This book was interesting and I enjoyed it a lot. I liked the bit where the foxes went under the ground to the farms (Boggis, Bean and Bunce) to steal things from the farms. They had a feast under ground while the farmers were waiting to catch them. Mrs Fox said Mr Fpx was a fantastic fox and I agree.

Kids’ Club Review by Aoi: Fantastic Mr Fox

Fantastic Mr Fox, by Roald Dahl

The fox is clever and wise. In the story there were three farmers who were nasty and mean. They destroyed Mr fox’s house and he and his family had to move out. Mr fox had a nice idea that they moved into underground where was the best place ever because the tunnel they dug connected to three farmers food storage. I think I rate this book 5.

Kids’ Club Review by Aoi: Esio Trot

Esio Trot, by Roald Dahl

I really liked this book because I like tortoises. The best part was that Mr Hoppy, in his enthusiasm, had bought no less that one hundred and forty tortoises to please Mrs Silver. In the end, they got married. It was very fun story.

Kids’ Club Review by Macy: George’s marvellous medicine

George's marvellous medicineGeorge’s marvellous medicine, by Roald Dahl

George’s Marvellous Medicine, By Roald Dahl, is a perfect book for younger children. It is about a granny and a young boy. The boy, named George, hated his Grandma a lot. Because he disliked his Grandma, he made a medicine that his Grandma wouldn’t want. The medicine made his Grandma go up to the roof. George also experimented on the farm animals, testing his marvellous medicine on them too. Overall, I would recommend this book because it is funny, great, interesting, and actually quite hilarious to read. The book made me feel excited about reading and I wanted to read right to the end. George’s marvellous medicine taught me a lot about being mean to people, including your Grandma, and how that is wrong because you should always respect your elders.

Revolting rhymesRevolting rhymes, by Roald Dahl

A naughty book about classic fairy tales made revolting and rhyming. This is a fun book and my parents used to read it to me when I was little. The rhymes are truly revolting but very funny. I recommend this to all parents who have t read bedtime stories.

All of you THINK you know the real fairytales. Well you don’t. The real fairytales are much more gory. The book is full of humour. Perfect for kids starting chapterbooks. Little red riding hood,Cinderella ,jack, Snow White, Goldilocks, Wolf and The three little pigs are still there but they’re going to show you the real fairytales.

Kids’ Club Review by Aoi: The magic finger

The magic fingerThe magic finger, by Roald Dahl

This book is so much fun to read. A girl is cool because she got a magic finger and it worked when someone made her cross. She didn’t like that her neighbor Mr Gregg family hunt the birds, the animals so she put her magic finger on them. At the end the Gregg family stopped hunting. It was good story. .
