Book Review: The Recess Queen

Today we welcome 7-year-old Genevieve, who is stopping by as our guest book-reviewer!

The Recess Queen by Alexis O’Neill, ill. Laura Huliska-Beith ISBN 9780439206372, Scholastic Press

Reviewed by Genevieve, 7, QLD

The recess Queen (cover)


Mary Jean is the Recess Queen.  She is very mean and does not like to play with others.

A new kid called Katie Sue starts at school and likes to run, kick the ball and skip. Katie Sue asks Mary Jean to play with her.

Katie Sue makes friends with Mary Jean. Everyone is very happy after this and they all play together at recess.

I think this book should be read by 7 and 8 year olds.

The book reviewed here is the reviewer’s own copy.
