Dotty Detective, by Clara Vulliamy

Dotty Detective is a great book! It’s funny and makes me want to keep on reading! i liked Dot, but not Laura Drew!
Clara Vulliamy certainly knows how to put together a great story! I can’t wait to read more in the series!
I would recommend it to girls aged 8-10.

Kids’ Club Review by Lara: This is where it ends

This is where it endsThis is where it ends, by Marieke Nijkamp

I thought that this was a great book. It was a little scary sometimes. It shows the perspective of 4 people when someone comes to school with a gun. Most of the school is trapped in the hall and can’t get out. this book includes terror, betrayal, and heroism. I would recommend this book for anyone aged 13-16.

Kids’ Club Review by Malia: Count me in

Count me inCount me in, by Bernadette Hellard

I thought that netball gems was a good story. It was about a girl called sahar that was starting a netball team and found it hard to fit in. my favorite part was when sahar had her first netball game she was really good and got lots of intersepts . I thought that was very unexpected.

Kids’ Club Review by Holly: Three cups of tea

Three cups of teaThree cups of tea, by Sarah Thomson

I was hooked on this book from the first page. I wasn’t so sure about it at first but it is a very inspiring book, and I recommend age 9+ to read it. It is about how this guy called Greg Mortenson climbs the second highest mountain in the world, and on the way down he takes a wrong turn, and ends up in a town called Korphe, and he sees the way they teach their children, which is outside, and sometimes in the rain and cold wind, and he doesn’t like it, so he decides to build a school for the village’s children.
