A Book Club For 9 – 12 Year Old Children

The Wondrous Society of Reading Book Club has a number of aims. One of the aims is to help children with their confidence through talking about books, and to encourage them to read more widely. The age group 9-12 years has also been carefully selected to support transition from Primary to Secondary School. The loss of a familiar space at Primary School and the sudden vastness of Secondary… (more)

The Wondrous Society of Reading

The request from the parents in the community to run a children's book club was high. Let's see if we can get the club moving, so if there are any recommendations or improvements please speak to us at Watsonia Library. We are keen to hear your ideas. The Wondrous Society of Reading Book Club has been running loosely for six months with fluctuating numbers of children attending. If you know… (more)

This is a fantastic book that's packed full of humor and excitement. Skulduggery Pleasant is one of the most hilarious characters I've read about in a while. I highly recommend this book.

This book is a chilling tale of mystery and magic. Think Harry Potter + a bit of sherlock holmes.
A wonderful read.

This is a MUST READ!!! This is about a twelve year old girl and what she got herself wound up into. This is an amazing series for all the Harry Potter fans. Soon after I read the Harry Potter book I thought I read the best book I could get my hands on, but I stand corrected. Skulduggery Pleasant is just like Harry Potter only there are different challenges and crime scenes. This is truly a book you cannot stop reading. I could go on forever on why you should read this but I think this is enough info for you to want to read Skulduggery Pleasant.

When and if you read this book there is a cool website somewhere in the back of the book. I promise this book will not be a waste of your time.

The series is good but the books get longer as they go on. I lost interest on Kingdom of the Wicked. If you want to check out the full series list you can go to my list called Skulduggery Pleasant or go to the link kcls.bibliocommons.com/lists/share/301751197_black_hawk_459/385149107.

For children who enjoyed the "Harry Potter" series, this series is an absolute must. A clean, but fiercely enjoyable mixing pot of genres that will leave you (and your child) full of anticipation for further adventures. I highly recommend these books for bedtime reading with young boys who like mysteries!

MUST. READ. NOW.
Crazy awesome!!! Definitely my favourite book series of all time! I've read all the books and loved them. I want more!! Love all the jokes and how they comeback in the hilarious conversations that happen. The characters are the best, especially Skulduggery, Valkyrie, Tanith, Ghastly(I could go on and on about this....) and once again, awesome.

An amazing series. (I have read all the books and extras and wish there were more.) I especially love Skulduggery and Valkyrie's sarcastic and ridiculous conversations, Ghastly Bespoke, and Tanith's general awesomeness, even ***SPOILER ALERT*** as a bad guy posessed by Remnants.

Violence: I agree with KingSalomon, this whole series is violent, might scare readers under 10 years old.
