The holidays are here and we have some excellent books for children and young adults to help to while the winter away.
The BFG is showing in cinemas now, and we have the film tie-in edition in store. A story that grown-ups will enjoy, too, it's entertaining, warm and full of adventure. We also have the audiobook which is read by David Walliams and is (of course) a lot of fun. We recommend this book for children aged 7 and up.
Jacqueline Wilson's latest, Little Stars, is the fifth instalment in the adventures of Hetty Feather, who has now escaped from Tanglefield's Travelling Circus with her best friend. Jacqueline Wilson's books always have a cast of clever, bold and lovable characters, and this one is just as captivating, along with some wonderful period detail relating to Victorian England. Aimed at readers aged 9 and up, many teenagers enjoy this series as well.
The seventh and final book in the Lorian Legacies by Pittacus Lore, United As One, is brimming with action and tension. For those eager to find out how the sci-fi series wraps up, this will keep you on the edge of your seat! Compelling and very readable. Aimed at readers aged 12 and up.
