Book review: Harrison, age 8.5

I am so excited to review Funny Kid: Snowballs, by Matt Stanton!

I have read a couple of the other Funny Kid books and they are always great so I was really happy to read this latest book in the series.

This ‘Funny Kid’ book is about the main character, Max, who goes on a holiday to a snowy mountain where mostly only rich people go. He gets up to all kinds of funny things including falling in love with a girl who works at the Chair Lifts and has to end up saving him when he tries to show off!

Funny Kid Snowballs

Overall, I thought this book was really good. It was funny and cool! Max and the other characters are funny and very interesting and I love reading about their adventures. The intro for this book on the first couple of pages was really clever. I would definitely read this book and recommend for every kid to read it.

I give this book 4.5 stars out of 5.

Book review: Eden, age 9

My name is Eden and I am doing a book review for Kidspot NZ on Funny Kid: Snowballs by Matt Stanton.

This is the first time I have read a book in this series so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought it started off a bit slowly, so it took me a while to get into it. I liked that the chapters were quite short so I could just pick it up and quickly read a few.

Once I got to know the characters and the silly things they started doing, I really wanted to find out what happened in the end. I like going skiing so the story really connected with me. I would find it really funny to see some of the things Max got up to on the slopes in real life!

Funny Kid Snowballs

I think kids aged 9 to 12 would like this book as they would be able to pick up all the funny stuff. Younger kids might not understand as well.

I give this book 3 ½ stars out of 5.

Book review: Tomas, age 11

Hello my name is Tomas and I reviewed the book Funny Kid: Snowballs. Thank you Kidspot NZ for allowing me to review this book for you.

Funny Kid: Snowballs is about Max and his friends having a hilarious holiday in the snow. There are pranks like frozen pyjamas, short sheeted beds and fake avalanches off the roof.

I thought this book was so funny, just like all the other books in the series.

This book is suitable for boys and girls aged 7-10 years old. Matt Stanton is a funny author and I will read more of his books.

Book review: Zack, age 8

Hi I’m Zack and I’m eight years old and the book I’m going to be reviewing is called Funny Kid: Snowballs.

This book is about a kid called Max. He goes for a holiday with his friends to a mountain resort. There are a lot of people who are rich, and Max gets a bit jealous. But soon when he is about to get on the chairlift to have a look at the views of this great location, he gets distracted, which one of his friends calls “puppy love”.

With this to think about, nothing else is on Max’s mind. But suddenly, one of Max’s friends Hugo goes missing! Max thinks it is because Hugo has been talking to a mysterious Mountain Man, and now he’s missing too! Maybe Hugo went to look for him?

I think this book is fun for younger readers like me if you like entertaining books, but this wasn’t one of my favourite books to read.
