Kids’ Club Review by Isabella: Sticking with pigs

Sticking with pigsSticking with pigs, Mary-Anne Scott

13 yr old Wolf feels more like a distant friend rather than a family member when his brother Davey is suddenly diagnosed with Addison’s disease. So when uncle Jem agrees to take him on a hunting trip he’s definitely excited. But when the trip turn out to be more than he bargained for Wolf feels uncertain he’ll make it out alive.

Sticking with pigsSticking with pigs, Mary-Anne Scott

This book is about a teenager called Wolf who has a brother called Davey who becomes sick. His Dad has to look after Davey so Wolf feels forgotten until his uncle decides to take him on a pig hunt. This is no ordinary pig hunt, however. I found this book interesting, especially as it is a NZ one. It is suited for older children,

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: The sea book

The sea bookThe sea book, Charlotte Milner

This book is about the sea. It contains really interesting facts about the sea, how it is changing, why it is important for all living creatures, and why it is in trouble. I loved this book as I like learning about things and I especially enjoyed reading about whales. A good book for schools to use if students are doing projects on the sea.

Klawde : evil alien warlord catKlawde : evil alien warlord cat, by Johnny Marciano and Emily Chenoweth ; illustrated by Robb Mommaerts

Raj’s mother has a new job and they have to move. Raj is unhappy as he loves his life, friends, and apartment. He also wants a cat but when one turns up at the door he thinks luck is on his side. However, Klawde is not what he seems……….I think this book is great and is suitable for children 7 and up.
