This is awesome and here is my review

The Mystery in Paris

I read the book, “The mystery in Paris”, and lots of other Thea Stilton Books during the year, 2020.
My emotions and thoughts for this exiting book was, fascinating in the first couple of chapters, and the big finale was very suspenseful.
The story ended calmly and peacefully, with no troubles.

Kids’ Club Review by Molly: The curse of the Werepenguin

The curse of the WerepenguinThe curse of the Werepenguin, Allan Woodrow ; illustrated by Scott Brown

Although this is another book about an orphan trying to find his family, it has a twist. Bolt is invited to Bulgaria by a Baron. thinking he was finally finding out about his family, Bolt discovers that the Baron is 12 and shouts all the time. He also bites and Bolt becomes half boy and half penguin. This is only the start of Bolt’s adventures. I thought this was a readable book, although a bit on the silly side. Children 8+ may like this book.

I thought this was a spooky book but I really liked it. This is one of those books that you read it but you can’t tell what’s going to happen next. I also really liked the idea of the scarecrow.

This is a complicated book as it is told by different characters in it and it is a puzzle. Its about a magical world where everyone has a talent. Cady’s talent is cake baking. Cady is an orphan and goes on a mysterious journey to a mysterious house. The house holds important clues to her past. I really liked this book as it was well written and you wanted to find out what happens in the end.

Barney Palmer is 8 years old and he finds out that a person in each generation of his family has supernatural powers and that he might actually be this person. Barney thinks that he is being haunted by his dead uncle and his sister Tabitha is determined to help him out. I really enjoyed this book although it was scary in places. It is well written and it is also a NZ book.
