Extra special treats (--not)Extra special treats (–not), by Liz Pichon

This book would be good for 7 year olds and over its about a boy named Tom Gates who is really in to drawing and goes to school with a really annoying person named Marcus. Who always brags about his star pupil badge one day at school they get snowed in and Marcus has to come home with Tom. Marcus is so annoying to Tom when Marcus goes Tom is so happy he’s gone.

Top 10 Children’s Fiction Summer 2018

Great children’s series with new additions! Author Rachel Renee Russell wrote her first book when she was still at school, she was around 10 years old! It was a birthday gift for her brothers.  The Dork Diaries books are inspired by her daughter Nikki and Erin.  Does one of those those names seem familiar?  Russell credits her daughters in authoring the books. Cool!

Have you ever written a book for anyone’s birthday?  It would be a such a great gift.  Or an terrible one if you wrote awful things. Maybe don’t write terrible things!

But definitely check out these popular authors for some great ideas:

 

  1. Diary of a wimpy kid, by Jeff Kinney
  2. Captain Underpants, by Dav Pilkey
  3. Storey Treehouse series, by Andy Griffiths
  4. Tom Gates, by Liz Pichon
  5. Dork Diaries, by Rachel Renée Russell

Kids’ Club Review by Calla: Family, friends and furry creatures

Family, friends and furry creatures, by Liz pichon

I love Tom Gates books! They are funny and wacky all in one. In this one Tom Gates (the main character) has school project and through out the story in explains how he makes the project and the challenges he goes to. As a bonus you get to see the finish project in the story. I highly recommend this book to all readers and especially ones aged 6-12.

Kids’ Club Review by Calla: Tom Gates excellent excuses (and other good stuff)

Excellent excuses (and other good stuff), by Liz pichon

Tom Gates rocks! All of the Tom Gates books are hilarious and have at least made me laugh out loud once. In this Tom Gates book Tom gets two week off school because it’s the holidays! He also get a massive tooth ache (to many caramel wafers). He has to go to his dentist (Mr D. Kay) and let’s just say that doesn’t turn out well.. I recommend this to ages 6-12 and any gender.

The book should be called Liz Pichon is amazing at writing books (all books). This was an amazing book, It was so funny and super creative. In this great book Tom goes on school trip, does some more doodles and fights with Marcus. I laughed so hard about one of the things in this book I almost cried. If your 6-12 years old and looking for great read I highly recommend this book.
