Monday – Into the Cave of Thieves
Reviewed by Amber M. BuniPS
This book was about a boy called Dash and his KB-15 which flashed when there was danger close by. Danger... like a group of ninjas called the Scallywags, and the two-tailed Devil Cat which was causing Dash a lot of trouble.
I liked this book because there was a lot of secrets and mysteries in the story.
I recommend this book for people who like mystery stories.
I rate this book 8/10.

I rate this book a 10/10.
The Boy, the Wolf and the Stars by Shivaun Plozza
Reviewed by Maceo R. CLPS
This story is about a boy named Bo and his loyal pet fox, Nix. His parents died when he was still a baby. He was left in a basket but then a farmer found him. He grew up with them until he was nine or twelve. He had a daily routine where he gave a tree some magic powder to keep it growing. One day the tree starts dying and the stars are dying and it's up to Bo to save them and defeat the wolves.
I personally like this story because there are a lot of ups and downs and some anticlimaxes which every good book needs.
I rate this book 10/10.
I recommend this book for teens aged 12+.
The Deadly Daylight by Ash Harrier
Reviewed by Lincoln G. SAPS
The Deadly Daylight is a mysterious book for teens and tweens. It's “an Alice England mystery”. Alice is in her teens and is constantly surrounded by death as she works at a funeral home, which is “apparently unusual for her age”. Alice comes close to the death of her friend, Violet’s relative, which she suspects was not of natural causes. Alice and Violet’s friendship takes an unexpected turn following the death. Besides the fact of the peculiar death of Violet’s relative at the pier, and the suspicious noises and lights from under the dock that night, Alice is also having her own suspicions about her sister, after her picture on the kitchen wall keeps falling when Alice speaks of death.
I rate this book 10/10 for it has lots of awesome but peculiar words that Ash Harrier has written and the whole way through I was wondering how it would end.
I recommend it for tweens and teens.
Seven Days by Fleur Ferris
Reviewed by Keaghan W. SAPS
Seven Days is a fiction book written by Fleur Ferris. Seven Days is a story about Ben who doesn’t want to stay with Josh, his only cousin, because he feels his parents dumped him. Ben only has seven days to solve the mystery of a century-old dangerous and thrilling adventure.
My favourite part of the book is when they go to the zoo because they find something related to their Great Grandfather. They were looking for his grave and the journal.
I rate this book a 10/10 because it was a really great book full of adventure.
I recommend this book for ages 8 and up.
Ninja Clones (Ninja Kid #5) by Anh Do
Reviewed by George D. CLPS
Ninja Clones is an action comedy that is by popular writer and artist Ahn Do. This particular book is based at school camp and tells the reader how Nelson and Kenny get through it but with a twist. (sorry I wont tell you). In this book they have ninja clones because they have alter egos and when they are being Ninja Kid and H-Dude the clones will act as their normal selves and no-one will be suspicious. I would recommend this book to anyone who can read it.
I rate it 8/10.
Diper Överlöde (Diary of Wimpy Kid #17)

Reviewed by Mason R. SAPS
The main characters in this story are Greg, Rodrick, Drew, Mackie and Bill. They are trying to be the most famous band in the world but are competing against another band who doesn't even know they are in the competition. To try and be the most popular band they steal, bribe fans with merchandise, and cause chaos. Will they succeed in their quest?
I think kids that like music would enjoy this book. My favourite part of the book is when Mackie screams all the time. The book is funny and entertaining.
I rate this book 9/10.
I recommend it for kids aged 7 to 11 because it has great illustrations and is an entertaining book.
Cheesy Weird (Weirdo #19) by Anh Do
Reviewed by Annika D. SAPS
This story was set in a school. The main characters are Weir, Wendy, Bella, Henry, Mum, and Dad. School photos were being taken at school as well as auditions for an ad for Tommy’s Ice Cream. Weir wanted to be in the ad with his friends. I think that Weir doesn’t like school photos because he doesn’t think he looks good in photos. My favourite part of the book is when Weir Do’s mum cuts his hair in a really funny hairstyle like a bowl cut.
This book is special because I find it very funny. It is my favourite Weir Do book so far because I like the storyline in this one better than the others.
I give it a score of 9/10 because I like it, but I don't love it.
It was worth reading and I recommend this book for ages 6 and older.
Ninja Kid by Anh Do
Exit Through the Gift Shop by Maryam Master
Reviewed by Izzy R. SCPS
Exit Through the Gift Shop is such a beautiful book about a brave, positive girl. She is suffering from cancer, and sadly she only has one year left before she dies, so she is trying to make the most of her last year. Though she has cancer, that doesn’t stop her from having the best time of her life, but unfortunately the school bully has been targeting her since Year Five, and that makes it a bit hard to be happy when she has mean words said to her all the time. Ana (the girl if you were wondering) has a best friend, Alexander (they all call him Al) who always looks after her, and always (tries) to stick up for Ana when Queen Mean is being horrible.
I love the author, Maryam Master, because she makes the book so descriptive and the choice of words she uses makes the book seem dramatic. Another reason I love this book is because it has lots of inspirational quotes and it makes me realise how we need to make the most of every second in our life.
I recommend this book to 11-12 year old readers because it might be a bit upsetting for younger kids.
My rating for this book is a 10/10!

This book is about Weird, the main character. One day at school he has a pet day (a day where they all bring their own pets to school) and he brings his two pets, FiDo and Blockhead, to school. His two pets love watching the show, Funniest Pets. He decided to send in a video to go on TV. It ended up going viral but what happens next will shock you.
I recommend this story for ages 8 and over as there might be some hard words in the book for younger people.
I rate this book a 7/10 as it could be better.

Hopping Weird (Weirdo #12) by Anh Do
Reviewed by Hattie S. BGS
This book is about Weir's mum getting a new job looking after animals.
A kangaroo came to their house and everyone loved him but Fido and Blockhead felt like they were getting replaced.
Weir and Bella had to do a friendship video but they didn’t know what to do it about. When the Joey was better, they used a tracker and they tried to find its mum and Bella and Weir did the video about the Joey finding his mum. Then they realised the Joey and its mum are family so they did it about how Fido and Blockhead didn’t like Joey at first and now they like him.
