Hot-off-the-press kid reviews

Just after I remarked to Hannah that our Kid Review board is equal parts series reviews (Twilight, The Lightning Thief, Harry Potter, Wimpy Kid) and "other stuff" reviews, we got a slew of fresh ones. Are kids missing book reports while they're on vacation? While those V.I.B.s are still heavily represented, The Wizard of Oz got reviewed twice in the last 24 hours -- not bad for a book in its 110th year! Voracious 7-year-old reader Piper wrote not one, but four reviews of her favorites. Here are some brand-new book recommendations from our young readers:
