Books of the Week

Early Years: Who’s in the Loo

By: Jeanne Willis

Library 1

Who's in the loo? There's a very long queue. Is it an elephant having a poo?

If one's house has many occupants, then this witty rhyme from the irreverent and observant pen of Jeanne Willis will resonate profoundly. Adrian Reynolds's exuberant illustrations highlight the fun.

Primary Fiction (7+): The World’s Worst Children

By: David Walliams

Library 2
From the world’s favourite author, David Walliams – ten cautionary tales and a delightfully dreadful cast of characters; all in glorious FULL COLOUR! Are you ready to meet the World’s Worst Children? Five beastly boys and five gruesome girls!
• Like Sofia Sofa – a TV super-fan so stuck to the sofa that she’s turning into one!
• Or Dribbling Drew – a boy whose drool gets him into trouble on a school trip!
• And not forgetting Blubbering Bertha – a girl who bawls and tells terrible tales!

Also featuring a special appearance from fan-favourite Raj!

Primary Non-Fiction: Shackleton’s Journey
By: William Grill

Library 3

Winner of the 2015 Kate Greenaway Medal
A New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2014
Best Children's Book of 2014, Wall Street Journal
Best Children's Book of 2014, Brain Pickings
A 2015 USBBY Outstanding International Book
Young, up-and-coming illustrator William Grill weaves a detailed visual narrative of Shackleton's journey to Antarctica.
Grill's beautiful use of colored pencils and vibrant hues effortlessly evokes the adventure and excitement that surrounded the expedition. His impeccably researched drawings, rich with detail, fastidiously reproduce the minutiae of the expedition.

Children will love examining the diagrams of the peculiar provisions and the individual drawings of each sled dog and packhorse. This book takes the academic and historical information behind the expedition and reinterprets it for a young audience.
