From the Library... 5 Books Your Year 5+ Child Wishes You Would Buy Them

23 April 2020

Librarian Kat Trowbridge writes a regular post on all things books, library and learning.

  1. David Walliams has a new adventure out titled The Beast of Buckingham Palace. Walliams is a modern successor to Roald Dahl with his humour and imagination.
  2. Rick Riordan's imprint has been putting out a whole host of mythical bestsellers. First, Sal and Gabi [broke] the Universe and now they are out to repair it in Sal and Gabi Fix the Universe by Carlos Hernandez. If you have a Percy Jackson fan, get this asap!
  3. While Last Kids on Earth is populating Netflix lists, leverage the love for them by getting your child into the book series. The Last Kid's on Earth June's Wild Flight by Max Brailler is out now and is the latest in the series.
  4. Dav Pilkey of Captain Underpants fame is now churning out books to appeal to silly puppy lovers. #8 Dog Man Fetch-22 dropped in December but your kids may have missed it since waiting lists were long.
  5. Lastly, Jeff Kinney's latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid is out and titled Diary of a Wimpy kid : Wrecking Ball. It is number 14 in the series but can be read out of order. It isn't that new (November 2019) but again, such a popular title was probably checked out at the school library and Diary readers are always willing to re-read.
