BOOK OF THE WEEK


THE MIDDLER BY KIRSTY APPLEBAUM
CHILDREN 9+

Eleven-year-old Maggie lives in an enclosed village safe from the Quiet War and the dangerous wanderers lurking outside. Just as her older brother, Jed is being sent to war a shocking truth is revealed from an unexpected friend. Can Maggie make herself heard before it's too late? A story about not being afraid of those who are different or of being true to yourself. A gripping adventure bursting with friendship, family and the importance of individuality.
ISBN 9781788003452 PB Nosy Crow £6.99




STICKER SHAPES: EASTER BY USBORNE
CHILDREN 5+

This little sticker book is the perfect activity for the holidays and small enough to go in your pocket. Bursting with Springtime scenes children can use the stickers to make daffodils, rabbits, lambs plus much more. It is ideal to take on travels as well as at home so boredom doesn't set in. Also in the Easter activity mini series you can pick from finger painting, puzzles and colouring books. Brilliant family fun.
ISBN 9781474947787 PB Usborne £2.99



HORRID HENRY: UP, UP AND AWAY BY FRANCESCA SIMON
CHILDREN 5+

This collection of four new fiendishly funny stories marks the 25th anniversary of Horrid Henry. Henry wreaks first-class havoc on a plane, sabotages a school play, writes a history essay under duress and sneaks onto a forbidden roller-coaster. A fantastic introduction to reading for pleasure featuring deliciously naughty illustrations by Tony Ross. Be warned, some children might get some rather horrid ideas from this irrepressible rebel!
ISBN 9781510105928 PB Orion £5.99



WATCH US RISE BY RENEE WATSON & ELLEN HAGAN
YOUNG ADULT 13+

Jasmine and Chelsea are best friends on a mission. When they start a Women's Rights Club to fight against stereotypes and prejudices in their school they have no idea it will go viral. Can they capture the momentum and really make a change? But at what cost? An ensemble cast that really captures the trials and tribulations of growing up. An inspiring story about the need to be peacefully proactive and engage with the world around you.
ISBN 9781526600875 PB Bloomsbury £7.99

  1. I have never seen anything that has worked so effective like Chief Dr Lucky spell that was able to bring my lover back to me within 48 hours. I run into luck on that beautiful day that i found Chief Dr Lucky contact details on an article that someone wrote about Chief Dr Lucky i had no choice that to contact and trust him. Chief Dr Lucky shocked me because i was not expecting to get a positive result as fast as that because the way my boyfriend left me was terrible, he lift me for my friend and i was told by Chief Dr Lucky that she used a black magic spell on him. Since the return of my lover i have made a promise that i will write out Chief Dr Luck on the internet and his contact details are +2348132777335 and via email: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com .
