Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Castle in the air

Castle in the air / Jones, Diana Wynne

This novel is about a man called Abdullah who bought a magic carpet from a merchant. His family want to find him a wife but one night he falls asleep on his carpet and wakes up in a garden and falls in love with a princess called Flower-in-the-night. However, an evil djinn steals the princess and Abdullah has to find her. I thought this was a great book as it was engaging and had adventure. I rated it 4 stars.

Kids’ Club Review by Mastani: A wrinkle in time

A wrinkle in time / L’Engle, Madeleine

I think A Wrinkle in Time is a interesting book about how people never expect things that happen and how some people are suspicious, some you can obviously trust, and how some people might trick you, some will help you. I rate it 3 stars because it has a very creative story, full of surprises. And you get to know the characters very well.

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Phoebe and her unicorn in the magic storm

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

This is another graphic novel about a girl called Phoebe and her unicorn called Marigold. There is a snow storm which has wiped out all the electricity. They suspect that it is a magic storm and together with Dakota, they have to solve the mystery. I thought that this book was okay but it was written for a younger age group. I do like unicorns, though, so I rated it 3 stars.

Kids’ Club Review by Harshit: Unicorn on a roll : another Phoebe and her unicorn adventure

Unicorn on a roll : another Phoebe and her unicorn adventure / Simpson, Dana

I rated this book 5 stars because it tells about Phoebe and Marigold’s friendship and it tells what their lives were before they became best friends and what they usually do together and Christmas is coming up so they are thinking of what to give each other and the family for Christmas and summer summer vacation is ending so it would be having a lot of fun like doing plays and doing work.

5 stars
