Her father has goes through great lengths to find a “Fing” for her daughter, or else he will be punished severely. It unravels to be a very funny adventure.

Kids’ Club Review by Jacob: The worst book ever

The worst book everThe worst book ever, Elise Gravel

In my opinion, the book was okay, as it was a bit funny, but had a very boring and cliche storyline and had badly drawn pictures. Overall, I would recommend this book to small children since most of the book is easy to read and understand.

Kids’ Club Review by Jacob: How Māui fished up the North Island

How Māui fished up the North IslandHow Māui fished up the North Island, retold by Donovan Bixley ; advised and translated by Dr Darryn Joseph

The book was all about the story of Maui stowing away on his brothers’ waka to prove to them he would be able to catch a large fish. In the end, Maui, with the help of his brother, manages to catch the North island. I enjoyed reading the book since it taught me a few Maori words, had amazing illustrations and entertained me by telling an exciting legend.

I thought it was an amazing book since it informs people about the life challenges that disabled children face. I understand the difficulties disabled children have face. It also gave me a better understanding of the life disabled kids experience.

The book showcased a plethora of different recipes for various crafts, such as cool wind-up cars, bottle rafts, wind turbines and much more. The book also taught you the science behind all of the recipes. In my opinion, I think the book is great since it helped improve my science skills through creating fun crafts.
