The Impossible Quest: Escape From Wolfhaven Castle by Kate Forsyth, reviewed by Malaika (11 years), Brunswick Heads Public School

Although this book may seem a little dull at first, it might reassure you to hear that it gets more and more exciting with each turn of the page and each book in the series. I especially like the part where they receive their gifts, because Sebastian (as the series of books go on) thinks his gift is useless until he finds out what it really does.

I also like how the author expressed the reactions of Sebastian, Quinn, Tom and Elanor when they find out that Lord Mortlake is the person wearing the black helmet with the boar tusks. My favourite character by far has to be Quinn because of the way she thinks and acts about problems.

Escape From Wolfhaven Castle is just one book in an epic series and has many interesting surprises as you go on. I believe that this is by far one of the most thrilling books I have ever read.

My Nanna is a Ninja by Damon Young and Peter Carnavas

My Nanna is a Ninja written by Damon Young, illustrated by Peter Canarvas, reviewed by Izaak (8 years), Brunswick Heads Public School

My Nanna is a Ninja is an awesome picture book that was first published in 2014 and was written by Damon Young, an author who will be at the 2016 Byron Writers Festival.

My Nanna is a Ninja is an hilarious story about how all nannas are different and cool in their own way. The nanna in this book is a ninja and does all sorts of funny things.

I enjoyed this book because it rhymes and it made me laugh lots of times.

I would recommend this book to kids aged three to 12 and give it five stars.
