Welcome to the Years 5/6 Book Club!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid : Hard Luck
"It is funny and weird and the parents don't really get what is going on."
Wings of Fire
"I like it because it is very detailed and has a very interesting plotline."
The Treehouse books
"This book is fun!"
The Cherub series
"I like this series as there is a lot of action. You learn about the characters' backgrounds in between missions."
Boys in our Book Club have been creating their own little books. Each book has 6 pages inside and a front and back cover. We are all looking forward to reading each other's work!
I read Eleven Eleven by Paul Dowsell. It's a very interesting book; it's about three boys who don't know that the armistice for WW1 has been signed and the war is over. It's an adventure for the three soldiers, one German, one British and one American. Really early in the book the Armistice is signed and so the book is more about their adventures, than fighting the war. It's the sort of book for more experienced readers and looks at the way the war has affected them. It is good because it is really unusual for the three soldiers from different sides to be united. If you are looking for a war story that is more than just about guns, this is a good choice.

Harry Potter: "I like it because I like fantasy books and it's a good magic book. It also has a really good movie."

Hunger Games : Catching Fire
