The Kooky Kids Club

The Blurb

Maxine is smart, quirky, and a bit of a misfit. One day, she receives a mysterious invitation to a meeting of the “Kooky Kids’ Club.”

Things are looking bright. It’s nice to finally have a real group of friends. Then Maxine’s teacher disappears.

Maxine doesn’t know what happened to her beloved teacher, or how she can help. But if anybody has the smarts to help Miss Thompson, it’s Maxine and the Kooky Kids’ Club…

This quirky chapter book is for the best kind of kids—the ones who are a little bit kooky!

What I Thought

I really enjoyed the last Robbie Yates book I reviewed and this one did not disappoint – in fact I think it may have been even better!

See my review of One Very Odd Teacher by Robbie Yates

I think one of Robbie’s talents is being able to write in a way that young people will immediately identify with and this is especially evident here.  The feeling of being left out, different, excluded can be so common place for children at school.  This book shows how Maxine starts to overcome those feelings.  I think the message – that our differences are the things that make us interesting and brilliant – is a great one for people to take away when reading this.

Another book I will be sharing with my ten year old – I know he will love it too!

Blog Tour Book Review – One Very Odd Teacher

#blogtober DAY SIX

One Very Odd Teacher by Robbie Yates

odd2

The Blurb

The humming noise got louder. Adam willed himself to focus. He had to finish his math test.

Suddenly, the noise became unbearable. He glanced up.

Mrs Murphy was inches away, leaning over another kid’s desk. Was the noise coming from her?

***

Every child remembers a teacher who was a little bizarre, prickly or ill-tempered. Some teachers, though, are very odd indeed, and warrant some closer attention…

This quirky chapter book will thrill kids who are adventurous, brave, and a little bit cheeky!

What I Thought

A really fun book that I read in a couple of sittings.  The only reason it was two and not one was the fact it was getting so late and I had a very early start the next day!

This is a children’s book and one I know both my boy’s will enjoy.  It is funny and Adam is a great character.  Robbie Yates humour will really make the boys laugh (it even did me) and the design of the book is great, with some fab visuals.  The chapters are short making it perfect for kids who have just started to read chapter books, as well as the more prolific readers who would probably get through a few chapters at a time.

Lots of humour and very relatable for children – they will all be able to pick out one of their own teacher’s who they have found a bit odd!  Perfect stocking filler for Christmas.
