The Umbrella New Hot
The Umbrella is a breathtaking, wordless picture book from Ingrid & Dieter Schubert. I must confess a preference for picture books with words, even if they are just a few scattered thoughtfully amongst the pages. However, such is the power of Schubert's engrossing images, wordless The Umbrella may be, yet its narrative is incredibly strong & hypnotic.

The Umbrella
This is Captain Cook is a fun picture book for all those who've enjoyed a school play ... in all its wonderful splendour! With a great narrative and fabulous illustrations, Tania McCartney & Christina Booth had me giggling along at the antics of the audience in that front row ... and we also happened to learn a lot about Captain Cook too!

If you are looking for a new Middle Grade series to make you smile, if you are looking for a GREAT book to read out loud at bedtime ... let me introduce you to Emily Sparkes. Emily Sparkes and the Friendship Fiasco is the latest novel from Ruth Fitzgerald. That Emily had me laughing out loud. More than a few times. I may, or may not have been in public, and I may, or may not, have received some strange looks. I just pointed to the book!

Arsenic For Tea Featured Hot
Arsenic For Tea is a fun, gripping and thoroughly engrossing mystery novel from Robin Stevens. Part of new middle grade series, Arsenic for Tea is the second case that Daisy and Hazel find themselves in the midst of. Good job they belong to the Detective Society.  'It was all happening again: a hidden murder, and a murderer who knew that we were investigating'

Arsenic For Tea
Dahlov Ipcar, as some of you may know, is certainly no stranger to the world of children's books. However it is thanks to Sam Arthur and Alex Apiro, responsible for the children's publishing imprint Flying Eye Books, that her much beloved books complete with distinct illustrations, have been given a new lease of life. Black and White is the 3rd of Ipcar's picture books to be published by Flying Eye Books, what a treat. I'm delighted to be able to share this one with you.

The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson, new for 2015, is the YA novel that EVERYONE will be talking about this year. Beautifully written, and sensitively portrayed Williamson tackles notions of identity and sexuality head on with warmth and humour. Oh, and then there's that ending too ...!

Digby's Moon Mission by Renee Price is about a young boy's curiosity, his determination to solve his quandary and a rather amusing ending.  Renee Price conveys Digby's narrative in a mixture of prose and verse which controls the pace quite perfectly.

Neil Gaiman's The Sleeper and the Spindle is a mature and sophisticated re telling of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. Accompanied by opulent and detailed illustrations from Chris Riddell this is a gorgeous edition to delve into. The hard cover edition has a semi transparent dust jacket, enabling you to glimpse the sleeping princess between the thorny roses - very clever!

The Sleeper and The Spindle
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E Lockhart was first published in the US back in 2008. I'm delighted that it has been released by Hot Key Books in the UK. (You have read her novel We Were Liars haven't you?)
