Welcome to Clark Cub's Library Corner. My plan is to review a book each month that I think you may enjoy reading. I also want to hear from you. This is your library, so let me know what books you would like added to our collection. I will try my best to order them for you.

Do you have a book recommendation? Tell us why your fellow Cubs should read your favorite book! Print the Book Recommendation Form.

Book Reviews

Hello Cubs,

We have our first book review. This comes from a young lady in the 5th grade, room C205.



"H.I.V.E: The Higher Institute
of Villainous Education
"

by Mark Walden


Reading Level 7.5 Pts. 12.0 Quiz # 116369

I enjoyed reading H.I.V. E. because I love action, humor, and suspense. This book has all of those great qualities and more. When I finished the first three books of the series, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Dreadnought. the fourth book. If you are wondering, H.I.V.E. is about four kids (who end up becoming friends) who are sent to a school, H.I.V.E. unwillingly where they study to become the next generation villains. In the end, they try to escape the school. As a reader, I found that I was hooked to the book and found it hard to put down.

If you're a person who loves action, suspense, humor and more all in one package, then H.I.V.E. is the book you'd love to read. I would recommend this to 4th, 5th and 6th graders. I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 or 9 out of 10.
