Kids’ Club Review by Petra: Friends

FriendsFriends, by Joy Cowley

I thought it was funny and I liked reading it. I found it funny when Lizard had clients but Snake didn’t know and accidentally ate them instead of helping them. My favourite part was when snake and lizard thought a balloon was a sky egg and tried to look after it.

A case in any caseA case in any case, by Ulf Nilsson (1948-)

A Case by Any Case is about two detectives, one of whom is retired, who are trying to solve a case involving two missing kindergarten children. Will they succeed and find the children? This book is suitable for younger children but that said, I really enjoyed it. It is a nice story with good characters, I rated it 5 stars.

Kids’ Club Review by Genevye: Ghost town at sundown

Ghost town at sundownGhost town at sundown, by Mary Pope Osborne

This book was not terrifying at all actually , my big sister always says to me don’t judge the book by it’s cover. My favorite characters were Slim because he looked slim and his name was Slim That was so funny It was so funny that Slim called Annie Smiley and Slim called Jack Shorty . It was a bit sad because Lonesome Luke (a ghost) Slim said that Lonesome Luke had a gal which I think means girlfriend went back to east because she couldn’t take the Wlid West so she went back to east. It was a bit sad for that part . So Lonesome Luke always went to a hotel and played Red River Valley over and over again. This book was funny and sad at the same time . I really enjoyed it.

Bear Grylls is an amazing because he has had many real adventures and has written many good stories. He put a kid in the each story and the kid connected to his/her friend in the next story. I like it very much.

Dingoes at dinnertimeDingoes at dinnertime, by Mary Pope Osborne

This book is a awesome talented book because I learned heaps of facts again and again i always say this because the Magic Tree House Series Morgan gives Jack and Annie a research book so i learn heaps of facts from there like a wildfire is a threat to koalas , koalas are slow-moving and they can’t escape the smoke and flames . If you read this book you will get lots of facts from here . So this is why this book is a talented awesome amazing book.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is about a boy called Gregory who is being pressured to grow up and get good grades at school. However he has to do all this with his friend Rowley at his side. Will he be able to cope with growing up with his best friend? I enjoyed this book as it is funny and I can relate to some of the things talked about in it. I rate it 4 stars and I think children older than 6 would like it.

I really like this book. When I am a grown up I want to do real adventures like Bear Grylls. He tell me when it comes to the wild mounts you have to be prepared or you might not survived. In the wild you’re stronger together.
