I didn’t get a book haul from Walker Books for December so I thought I would show these off a few days earlier. These new books which came in the post just before Christmas, are from the lovely people at Walker Books who have sent an amazing set of books to start off January’s book buying and reading.
First some great children’s and teen fiction:
The Day That Aliens (Nearly) Ate Our Brains by Tom McLaughlin – Best friends Freddy and Sal have accidentally intercepted a message from Alan – a spectacularly grumpy, brain-munching alien from outer space. Alan has only one message. Earth is going to be invaded in exactly ten hours’ time …
Mango & Bambang: Superstar Tapir by Polly Faber & Clara Vulliamy – Both Mango and Bambang are left star-struck when Bambang’s cousin comes to town with Hollywood actress Minty Verbena. But when disaster strikes, Bambang is the true star of the show.
How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather – After Sam’s father is hospitalised, she has to move from New York to Salem. Unfortunately, she’s related to one of the men responsible for the Salem Witch Trials, and to say she feels unwelcome is an understatement… When a centuries-old curse is rekindled, can Sam stop history repeating itself?
And here are some excellent and very interesting picture books:
Nature Storybooks Collection: Every Wonderful Word is True – A collection of 10 Nature Storybooks which give a fascinating and accessible introduction to the natural world. Subjects include sharks, polar bears, tigers, whales and many more.
All At Sea There’s a New Baby in the Family by Gerry Byrne & Faye Hanson – When Liam’s mum and dad bring his new baby brother home from the hospital they also bring him a present: a family of hippos. But the baby hippo of the family keeps going missing … A warm, sensitive and reassuring book about the arrival of a new baby in the family.
Lucky Laszlo by Steve Light – Lazlo is in love. So, with the perfect red rose in hand, he sets off to the theatre, where the girl of his dreams is starring in Alice in Wonderland. But when a cat snatches the flower and dashes backstage, Lazlo is in for a bit of bad luck.
So do any of these interest you? I can’t help but love the title and illustrations of Mango and Bambang: Superstar Tapir, it’s the Tapir that’s just so cute! 😀
The Nature Storybooks Collection is a box with 10 individual picture books inside! I’ll be reviewing them all plus the overall collection soon so I hope you enjoy those reviews along with all the others 🙂
