Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Kooky Kids’ Club.
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!
Robbie Yates has done it again. I think The Kooky Kids’ Club is my favorite of his books so far, but his ability to write engaging children stories that adults can love to, is something really special.
A story with themes of embracing your weird and kooky, I think this story is hugely inspiring. It’s important to find people you relate to, and I identified with Maxine right away.
The Kooky Kids’ Club has humor, relatable characters, a bit of mystery and fantastic writing. I could go on and on, but really, you should pick this book up. It’s perfect for young ones to read, but as an adult, you will find something very relatable too. I love this book!!
One morning the following week, Maxine felt a gentle nudge as she came in from recess. She looked up. A girl with blonde hair handed her a small folded note. Her name, “Maxine James,” was printed neatly on the front.
Surprised, Maxine glanced up, but the girl just shrugged. She didn’t seem to know what the note was about either.
Maxine unfolded the note carefully so she wouldn’t tear the paper. She hoped it wasn’t nasty, but something about the handwriting on the front told her that this was something special.
Maxine folded the note back up and slipped it into her pocket. She bit her lip. Who were these kids, and what did they want with her?
She was baffled but curious. And when the lunch bell rang, she hurried toward the library, keeping her eyes peeled for a boy in green.
