I received some lovely book post recently from the wonderful people at Walker Books. It’s a mixture of both children’s and teen books and I can’t wait to read them! 😀 I hope you like the look of some of these titles.
First for the children’s books, a mix of board books, paper picture books and a gift set! (descriptions from a brief email from Walker Books):
A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Collins – Flap your wings, fly up high, open your beak and sing in this fun action rhyme story about fantastical birds by multi-award-winning author Lucy Cousins.
Mother’s Day by Shirley Hughes – From the fun of waking Mum and Dad up in the morning, getting the bus into town with Mum or even stories all together at bedtime, this joyous tale celebrates the special bond between a mother and child.
Raymond by Yann and Gwendal Le Bec – Raymond the dog has big ambitions beyond his ordinary, canine life in the big city. He wants to take himself for a walk and get his own dinner. And he wants a job, just like his owners.
Skip to the Loo! A Potty Book by Sally Lloyd-Jones & Anita Jeram – Bunny wants his potty. What will bunny do? Only one thing for it … skip to the loo!
Guess How Much I Love You: Book & Baby Cards by Sam McBratney & Anita Jeram – The classic story of Guess How Much I Love You now comes with 24 gorgeous cards for recording important milestones in your baby’s life.
And here are reading books, one children’s and the other a YA title:
Scythe by Neal Shusterman – ‘A true successor to The Hunger Games’ Maggie Stiefvater. In a perfect world, what is there left to fear? A dark, chilling and thought-provoking sci-fi thriller.
Begone the Raggedy Witches (The Wild Magic Trilogy, Book One) by Celine Kiernan – When witches kidnap Mup’s dad, she must journey to their home to save him. For Witches Borough is a dangerous place ruled by a tyrannical queen and her band of raggedy witches.
I love the look of so many of these books I can’t wait to read them! I’ve never read the original ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ so what a treat for me! I’m also looking forward to ‘The Raggedy Witches’ as I want to throw myself into a good children’s fiction book. And I can’t but be hooked by the picture of ‘Scythe’ let alone the blurb (which you’ll see later) and the tagline Thou Shalt Kill 😮 I do like dark books sometimes and this just looks creepy-in a good way 🙂
So are there any books you are interested in from this lot? Any other books you’ve recently received or are looking forward to reading, do let me know in the comments below 🙂
