Kids’ Club Review by Avin: Dork Diaries: Dear Dork

Dork Diaries: Dear Dork, by Rachel Renee Russell

Another amazing book of the Dork Diary series. It’s funny since I haven’t read the books in order so sometimes I get really confused. I totally recommend reading the series! If you like having a good laugh then this is the perfect book for you!

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!
