Mr Harrison's Top Picks of the Year

admin on: Library Blog

   Twister by Juliette Forrest

My absolute favourite book I’ve read this year so far. Suitable for Years 5/6 it’s a unique, strange and engrossing read. Set in the southern states of America it’s about a girl called Twister who is looking for her missing father. On the way she encounters unfriendly classmates, a witch, ghosts and a necklace than can transform her appearance into anything she wants.

     Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend

A fantastical and amusing adventure about a “cursed child” who escapes death and is taken to Nevermoor. There she is sent for trials to join the secretive Wundrous Society. Like a steampunk/X-men mash-up the book cracks along at a good pace and will keep you entertained – good for very able Year 4s and upwards.

 The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith

This beautifully illustrated book is about a fox whose only friend is a star. When the star disappears the fox has to spend his time in the forest alone. A charming book about love, loss and changes.

  Du Iz Tak by Carson Ellis

A wonderful, hilarious picture book about plants and animals growing and changing. Written in a nonsense language that somehow makes sense there’s plenty to spot and share in the illustrations. Love it! For Early Years upwards.

What I'm Reading Now

admin on: Library Blog

I’ve just started Lockwood & Co: The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud. It’s the first in a series of books about paranormal investigators tracking down and capturing ghosts. Although it has a modern-day setting it has a Victorian feel to it as the investigators need to use swords and gas lamps in their work. So far it’s a bit spooky and really exciting with the author’s trademark sense of humour. Loving it so far!

Book Swap

The Book Swap Shed is up and running! The old playhouse in the playground has been spruced up and stocked with some books. If your child has any old books from home that they no longer want they can swap them for books from the shed. The shed is open every lunchtime and before school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
