He is also told that this condition makes him superhuman in certain ways.

Rating: 7.5/10 – This book is very imaginative and vivid. The story of this first book of the series is unique, and there is lots of fun and adventure without interruption from bad guys. There were some slow parts, but all in all it was an enjoyable book.

Kid’s Book Review: Wandmaker by Ed Masessa


Henry Leach is a boy who loves to read, particularly books about wizards. He has spent many years crafting a wand, and discovers that he actually has powers when he accidentally turns his sister Brianna into a hedgehog.

I think this book is awesome! It was so adventurous, descriptive, and magical, and it made me want to go out and make my own wand.  I give it 10/10 and highly recommend it!

Kid’s Book Review: “The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents” by Terry Pratchett

There are rats eating the garbage at the wizard university, which is changing them into intelligent beings that can speak English.

Maurice the cat also develops these abilities, and together with the mice they have a very interesting adventure.

I really liked the part where the kid outwits the Pied Piper himself with the help of the rodents and Maurice. This was a very interesting book, I loved it!

Rating: 9.8/10


Kid’s Book Review: Be a Genie in Six Easy Steps by Lisa Chapman and Steve Cole

Milly, Michael, Jess and Jason have recently moved, and while they are unpacking they came across a handbook for Genies.

The four children begin their own Genie training, where there are six steps to becoming a Genie. One of the things they have to do is to find a worthy vessel, or “lamp”. They get to perform magic, which was fun to read about, and the children learned some very valuable lessons that would help them to be better people.

I really liked this book, it was very interesting and exciting. I would read this book again.

Rating: 9.5/10
