Kids’ Club Review by Luis: Where the wild things are

Where the wild things are, by Maurice Sendak

This book is about a kid who had an outfit that was a wolf His mother told him to stay in his room for two years then his room turned into a forest. He rode a boat then he was the king of the wild things. At the end bit his mum made him supper then he did not know that his supper was still hot. I like this book because he was the king of the forest and all of the wild things were scared of him. In the middle of this book there were only pictures.

Kids’ Club Review by Luis: Hey Jack The new friend

Hey Jack: The new friend, by Sally Rippin

Jack found a dog because the dog was lost. They had to keep the dog because they checked all of their neighbors and checked who owns it. The puppy only stayed for two nights. He was using towels to sleep on. On the last night Jack was sleeping on the puppies bed. Jack went to the puppies bed because he heard a barking noise he knew it was the puppy.And then they found the owner of the dog, it was Alf. He showed Jack and his Dad the other puppies inside a door and he had five puppies. One big puppy and one grey puppy and all of the other puppies were brown. I like this book because he has a new friend. If you don’t know what it is I will give you a clue it is cute and it chases cats if you don’t know what it is, it is a dog. I also like the book because i like cute puppies.

Kids’ Club Review by Delta: Tales of Toyland

Tales of Toyland, by Enid Blyton

My favorite character is Tiptoe. I like Tiptoe because she stands up for others and helps people in need. The best bit in the book was when Jolly made friends with Tiptoe. Tiptoe got her name because she stands on her tiptoes. I think boys and girls would both enjoy this book. Kids who are 7 to 10 years old could read the book. Tales of Toyland is unique!!! I give this four stars out of five!

Kids’ Club Review by Delta: Unicorn Riders – Quinn’s Riddles

Unicorn Riders – Quinn’s Riddles, by Aleesah Darlison

The best bit in this book was when the Unicorn Riders got Ula back. Ula is a unicorn owned by Quinn the main character. Something I learnt from this book was to never give up because you should always keep trying. I would recommend this book to my friends because it is very girly and my friends like unicorns. This book is similar to The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale because they both have girl heroes on horses. I give this book three stars out of five.
