Kids’ Club Review by Cardi: Glitter Bird

Glitter Bird, by Rosie Banks

I really liked this book when I read it. It is by a lady called Rosie Banks. Rosie Banks does not just write Secret Kingdom, she writes books like Secret Kingdom and Secret Princesses and lots more. In the story some girls ( called Ellie, Summer and Jasmine ) need to find a bird. That is why the story is called Glitter Bird. The bird sprinkles glitter. The bird has the power of friendship. But thanks to the bad person, the bird makes people fight! Help the girls and their friend Trixi stop the evil queen and her horrible sprites from getting the bird first! I really shall review more of Secret Kingdom and Secret Princess.

In this book, some girls are off to Fairy Fairground, ( a place) but Trixi’s magic is still missing. ( read Sparkle Stature.) Ellie, Summer and Jasmine ( the girls ) must award the Twinkle Trophy before her magic is lost for ever. But with Queen Malice and her Storm Sprites ( the bad people) still causing trouble, they’l have to find Trixi first . . .

I so do love this book. It is about two girls called Charlotte and Mia. Mean Princess Poison puts a spell on a palace and on some princess and turns them to ice! Charlotte and Mia need to grant two girls their wishes. Those girls are called Bethany and Tyra. Will the girls save the day, or will Princess Poison get her way?
