Top 10 Children’s Comics Summer 2018

There are some fantastic new additions to some great comic series here in the library.  It’s great to see they have been so popular with readers over summer.

Bad Guys author Aaron Blabey is heading into the movie making business! Yes his award winning talents have caught the eye of DreamWorks Animation who have brought him along for the ride as executive director.  One of my favourites of his is The Ghost of Miss Annabel Spoon.  I know it sounds serious for a funny writer and illustrator of books but it’s good!

Kids’ Club Review by Ethan: The wonderful Wizard of Oz

The wonderful Wizard of OzThe wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum (1856-1919,)

This book is a combination of excitement and suspense. This book has a plot that is easy to understand. The author made some creative characters, for example, the author has introduced flying monkeys and other creatures to the story. This is a perfect book for a 7-year-old. The Wizard of Oz is the best book for avid readers.

Kids’ Club Review by Miki: How to train your dragon

How to train your dragonHow to train your dragon, by Cressida Cowell

It’s pretty good. It involves a little bit of violence but I don’t think it would be too scary for little children. It shows an important bond between owner and pet. It’s quite funny actually.

Kids’ Club Review by Miki: The first case

The first caseThe first case, by Ulf Nilsson (1948-)

It shows that sometimes if you suspect someone or something too much you can often get things wrong. And even if you’re the same species it doesn’t mean that you won’t steal from each other.
