Kids’ Club Review by Frida: Diana, Princess of the Amazons

Diana, Princess of the Amazons / Hale, Shannon

I like this book quite a bit because of the illustrations, action and story in it.
(I’m also keen on the Hale’s Princess in Black series).
I give it 4 stars because I think it could be a little more exciting.
Other then that it was really good!

Kids’ Club Review by Zoe Alves: Phoebe and her unicorn in The magic storm

Phoebe and her unicorn in The magic storm / Simpson, Dana

I quite like the book because its a comic and I adore comics. My favorite part was when phoebe said (probably pretty loudly) “Behold me World! I am Phoebe Unicorn rider!” It was hilarious. I was laughing hysterically. If I learnt something it would most probably be that Phoebe LOVES being in the center of attention.

The Baby-sitters Club [5] : Dawn and the impossible three : a graphic novel / Galligan, Gale

This graphic novel is amazing. I would recommend this book to all ages above 9. Dawn is such a funny and caring character. ai love how there is some drama but its mostly just a chill book. I think this graphic novel is a little underrated and I think you would enjoy this graphic novel very much. Highly recommended!
