Kids’ Club Review by Lauren: The bomb

The bombThe bomb, by Sacha Cotter ; illustrated by Josh Morgan

This book had a really good message “believe in yourself and persevere”. I couldn’t tell if the main character was a boy or a girl but their Nan continued to believe in them, even though they didn’t. Believing worked and you have to do things in your own original way. This was a nice picture book set somewhere around New Zealand.

Kids’ Club Review by Ruby: Fing

I loved the book. I couldn’t put it down because it was funny and interesting. I would recommend this book 6+ because even though the book is really funny a five year old might not be able to understand some of it. My favourite part was the end because it was such a surprise of what happened.

I think that the girl Myrtle is a bit of a meanie and her parents are so nice to her and they give her whatever she wants. Spoiler Alert: I was really happy when Myrtle disappeared. The illustrations are really good and I would recommend it to confident readers.

Kids’ Club Review by Jacob: The ice monster

The ice monsterThe ice monster, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

This book was all about a child urchin, a prehistoric mammoth, her friends and a crazy scientist. In this interesting book, the child urchin, Elsie, sneaks into a museum to take a look at the latest exhibition – the ice monster. After that, with the help of her friends that she meets, she brings the ice monster back to life…

In opinion, I think this book is amazing since it’s easy to read and it’s really funny and exciting. Overall, I’d recommend this book to all of my friends and family.

I liked this book a lot. I think that it is really interesting how Ash is a student hostel, the cover is really good and intriguing. I would recommend this book for 8-9 years and over.

Kids’ Club Review by Tiana: A tangle of knots

The tangle of knots was a really good book and I would love to have a baking talent like Cady. When I read the review about this book, the peanut butter factory made no sense at all, but then I read the book and found out it did make sense.
