Kids’ Club Review by Marcus: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, by J K Rowling

This is my worst Harry Potter book out of the series.It’s about Harry’s sixth year and when Professor Dumbledore picks him up his right hand is all black and shriveled up.

Kids’ Club Review by Ethan: The hobbit : or, There and back again

The hobbit : or, There and back againThe hobbit : or, There and back again, by Charles Dixon (1954-)

The Hobbit was a very interesting book.Each chapter had a adventure.My favourite chapter was Fire and Water, when the dragon attacked Laketown and Dale.The protagonist of the story was Mr Bilbo Baggins. Guess which character in the book is in the Lord of the Rings? The premis of the story was that the dwares lost all there gold and now they are going to work together to destroy the dragon and reclaim the gold.I would recommend this book to 6th grade or older,unless a 5th grade person is a really good reader.
