It’s June and the lovely people at Walker Books continue to bring a smile to my face with another new book haul! Check out this wonderful selection of kids, teen and even a colouring book! Details of each book are below the pictures and you can expect these books reviewed this month (and maybe heading into next month if I’m a bit slow at reading 😉 – LOTS of books to read! )
First some great picture books and a colouring book:
Sam and Jump by Jennifer K Mann – A sweet, reassuring story about friendship for all young readers who have ever loved, and lost, a special toy.
Mr Large in Charge by Jill Murphy – Mrs Large isn’t feeling too good. So Mr Large sends her back to bed. “I’ll take charge,” he says. But Mrs Large’s day doesn’t turn out to be quite as restful as she had first hoped!
Kings, Queens & Palaces Colouring Book – Colour your way from Buckingham Palace to Kew with this regal colouring book of kings, queens and palaces of the United Kingdom.
And how about these novels?
Truth or Dare by Non Pratt – How far is too far when it comes to the people you love? A powerful and moving novel about bravery from the Guardian’s “writer to watch” Non Pratt.
Alex Rider: Never Say Die by Anthony Horowitz – In this brand new, explosive adventure in the number one bestselling series, Alex Rider is trying to get his life back on track after the traumatic events of his last mission. But even Alex can’t fight the past … especially when it holds a deadly secret.
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evens Welsh – People go to Italy for love & gelato … but sometimes they discover much more.
A wonderful coming-of-age novel.
Beck by Mal Peet – The final novel from Carnegie Medal-winning author Mal Peet is the sweeping coming-of-age adventure of a mixed race boy transported to North America.
Truth of Dare is extra special with a double sided cover (you literally flip the book upside down and then read the second half from the back to the front! – I’ll add pics when I review it!)
These descriptions are as I was given them by Walker Books. Anyone interested in any of these titles? I’ve got a LOT of reading to get on with (and an internet connection that’s still driving me bonkers so I’ll do my best to get posts out as soon as I can).
Let me know what you plan to read in June, any of the above? Or something else? I’d love to hear some recommendations too 🙂
