Book reviews from the St Kilda club - September

The St Kilda Lightning Readers club met on Wednesday, 1st September and here are their reviews.

It was only a small group this month, and those present were: Lily, Joe, Noah, Oliver, Georgia.

Reviewed by Georgia:

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

There are 3 books in the series and this is book 1.

It’s about a girl, Maggie, and her father, who both love books. He is a bookbinder. He has a book called Inkeheart. It is a 'flabby' book. He wants it. It is the only copy of the book left.

Georgia is taking the series to read on a 3 week holiday in Bali (lucky Georgia!)

Reviewed by Oliver:

The fall by Robert Muchamore

Oliver is reading the Cherub series by Robert Muchamore. He read the fourth one first and now he’s reading the seventh because "that’s how they came."

A group of kids from 10 to 17 are sort of spies who try and stop major criminal gangs in Jamaica. They try and stop things like drug traffickers.

"I don’t usually read spy books because I usually find them boring but this series is really good."

Reviewed by Joe:

Joe is reading the Hardy Boys series – there are about 350 in the series, and he’s read about 30. The one he wants to talk about is called Feeding frenzy.

Two brothers, Frank and Joe, go on a mission and work for a spy agency – ATAC – American Teens Against Crime.

In Feeding frenzy there is a hotdog eating contest where a guy gets poisoned. Frank and Joe have to find out who is doing it, why they’re doing it, how they’re doing it and stop them. You find out at the end who did the poisoning and why. I REALLY recommend the books.

Reviewed by Noah:

Just Macbeth by Andy Griffith.

It’s about Andy and his best friend Danny. He has a crush on a girl called Lisa. He loves Lisa. He goes to a party and eats marshmellows called 'chubby bubbies.' He is doing a class play called Macbeth and he gets one of the parts of the 3 witches. They mix something in a blender and that makes them go back to past times.
