Kids’ Club Review by Matthew: The ice monster

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

I liked reading this book because it is about a ten year old orphan named Elsie who runs away and makes friends with a cleaner and a ten thousand year old mammoth! There are lots of funny parts in the book that make me laugh. David Walliams is my favourite author! I think boys and girls age 9 and over would enjoy this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Matthew: The meltdown

The meltdownThe meltdown, by Jeff Kinney

I enjoyed reading this book because it was very funny especially when there was a big snowball fight between Lower Surrey Street and Upper Surrey Street. Greg Heffley is always coming up with crazy ideas that get him in trouble! I would recommend this to kids aged 8 and up.

Kids’ Club Review by Matthew: The world’s worst children. 3

The world's worst children. 3The world’s worst children. 3, David Walliams ; illustrated by Tony Ross

I gave this book 5 stars because it was very funny. My favourite chapter in this book was The Terrible Triplets, their names were Tom, Dick and Harry. I enjoyed this chapter because each one of them had a disgusting habit. Tom liked to eat his earwax, Dick liked to eat his boogers which he said tasted like a cabbage lolly, and Harry liked to eat his belly button fluff! I recommend this book to kids aged 7 and up.

Kids’ Club Review by Luis: Norman’s Farty Armpit

Norman’s Farty Armpit, by Frank Newman

Norman lives in Normalsville. His Mum, Dad, sister, chicken and cat know.s how to make music but he doesnt. Suddenly his toes started to tingle then his knees started to jingle his fingers started to twitch. He started to burt and burrrrttttt…burrrttt…burrrttt…burrrrrtttttt…burrrrrrrrtttttt…burrrrrrttttttt. He started to make fart noise with his armpit he now was the most famous person until he was going to show everybody his fart then it did not work. Even though his whole family knows how to make music its ok for him because life is normal. My favorite part is when he keeps on burting because it sounds funny.

Kids’ Club Review by Jethro: Greek gods and heroes

Greek gods and heroesGreek gods and heroes, Sylvie Baussier & Almasty

In my opinion, this book gives a nice window to Greek Gods. I find it nice to read. It tells you all about Greek Gods and heroes; just like the title says. I find it as interesting as the other editions, but I have a good time reading it.
