Kids’ Club Review by Jasmine: The haunting

The hauntingThe haunting, Margaret Mahy

This book sounds scary at first, but it isn’t actually. I rate it 5 stars because it’s got really funny characters from scared Barney to his sister the chatterbox Tabitha. Magicians and families what could happen next? But then when Barney gets followed by what seems to be a ghost It’s Troy the oldest who finds out what’s actually happening.

Kids’ Club Review by Millie: The bridge home

The bridge homeThe bridge home, Padma Venkatraman

The book was a fantastic, it gave me a realistic and vivid idea about India as well as being homeless and how hard it would be to be in a low ‘caste’. Part of why the book is so good is because of the character Ruku. She is an amazing and hilarious girl she has a younger sister called Viji and the two are like bread and butter you couldn’t live probably without the other. This book easily deserves a five star rating and I would recommend it to people who like learning about another place in a fun a very interesting way👍👍👍

I really loved this book I didn’t read it by my self I read it with my class And I like the way that it is set in India and it gives you a meaning that this is what it is like if you run away from home you can meet new people who you can make a connection with and they have faced a lot of challenges of Viji And Rukku because it is sad because Rukku died and it made me want to cry

This book was amazing, as it was a style of writing I had never really read before, as it is set as a letter, and in a place/culture that I have never experienced. My favourite part is where Viji and Muthu explain money to Rukku
