Kids’ Club Review by Hannah: Pick Your Poison

Pick Your PoisonPick Your Poison, Lauren Child

This book is about Ruby Redfort, a code breaker for the spy agency, Spectrum. With the help of her butler/spy handler Hitch; she solves mysteries. Ruby comes face to face with villains. This book is thrilling and there’s lots of plot twists. This book is by Lauren Child who wrote Charlie and Lola, but the Ruby Redfort series is very different.
This book is good for ages 8 and half and older.

Once upon a crimeOnce upon a crime, by Michael Buckley (1969-)

For the first time since their parents were kidnapped, Sabrina and Daphne Grimm return to their hometown of New York City, to find the trickster King ,(Puck’s), family. But, the fairy-tale detectives get more than they bargained for in the Big Apple: wand-wielding fairy godfathers, swashbuckling Wall-Street pirates, subway-stealing dwarfs, and, worst of all, in the midst of all these urban everafters, a murderer.

Kids’ Club Review by Thomas: Dog Man

Dog ManDog Man, by Dav Pilkey (1966-)

This story is about a cop with a dog’s head called Dog Man!

Dog Man is the best out of all the other cops, because he can sniff out anything, can take down any bad guy and has a rivalry with a villain called Petey the Cat!

This book is in comic form and it makes me laugh out loud whenever I read it.

I would recommend it for ages 7 or 8 +.
