I have been beside myself with anticipation for Robbie Yates’ new book for middle-schoolers and then, just when I was supposed to upload, Word Press went all kooky instead!! My tech guys, WP tech team and I have been working hard to get it back up and running on my end and, finally, I think we have it!! So, welcome to my stop on The Kooky Kids Club blog tour!
Growing up I was a bit of a nerdy girl, an only child who was a bit too bookish to fit in anywhere, so when I started reading The Kooky Kids Club, I immediately fell in love with darling Maxine, the heroine of the book. Maxine is very smart and a little bit quirky. Making friends isn’t something that comes easily for her. However, one day she receives a mysterious note:
Finally a chance for Maxine to begin making friends with kids who are “kooky” like her. Suddenly, however, her teacher goes missing! Adults don’t seem to notice or care but Maxine enlists the help of the Kooky Kids Club and if anyone can find the teacher, it’s them!
Robbie Yates, simply told, is one of my favorite kids’ book authors. His writing is perfect for tweens who need a little excitement and whole lot of humor to keep their interest. This book does exactly that, with a few excellent moral implications thrown in for good measure. The bottom line is, we all have our quirks but generally they are assets, not detriments, and this is precisely the type of message we hope to send to our kids who muddling through the tween years of middle school. The Kooky Kids Club is perfect and would make one very excellent holiday gift for the tweens in your life – or a teacher or two. Thank you, Robbie, for another amazing book!
Robbie Yates in an author from Melbourne, Australia. He likes cocoa, cheeky poetry, and eating all of the red jellybeans before anybody else can get to them.
In his free time, Robbie likes to read ridiculous and wacky kids’ fiction. He also likes practical jokes and terrible puns. I just love a guy who is so mysterious, don’t you?
