Kids’ Club Review by Iman: Matilda

Matilda / Dahl, Roald

This book was really interesting. Matilda was so smart but her family and principal were very cruel, but her teacher was just like her mother. This book was really funny, and when I read it, it finished so quickly that’s how great this book was

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 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.
