Enter into the world of fairies! The Shadow of the Rowan Tree is a story of survival, friendship and trust. It will be a girl's dream to enter the worlds of Daisy and Margot as they embark on a journey of friendship and faith in your beliefs. Daisy is very much a relatable character and I can see many readers placing themselves in the story, maybe even wishing they were a part of the story themselves. The Shadow of the Rowan Tree is a series of books, igniting a child's belief in fairies for some time to come. A wonderful ... View Full Review
‘The Adventures of Jimmy Crikey: The Emerald Lake’ by Wallace E Briggs is the fourth book that follows an alien orphan Jimmy McGellan, nicknamed Jimmy Crikey by bullies due to his unusually large feet. Now Jimmy is a teenager, and while he lives happily on earth among his four witch guardians and has lots of friends in different realms, he feels like something is missing. With the same fast pacing as previous books, we not only see Jimmy help the Aquamites of Emerald Lake from flesh eating serpents but also fall in love. Although this is the fourth ...

A story of new friends, facing your fears and overcoming prejudice. Written in a simplistic and to-the-point style, 'The Adventures of Bear and Unicorn' by Sparkles Johnson & Sunshine Akbas follows Unicorn as she is determined to have an adventure, unfortunately she gets stuck and must rely on Bear to help her. The pair quickly become firm friends and Unicorn has other opportunities to face her fears, with her new friend's support.

A unique family from a magical house finds themselves in a pickle that spans space and time. The Redmaynes in ‘The Little House on Everywhere Street’ are a little different from your average family. And that’s before you take into account the tardis-like house they live in and the curious treasures found within it. The children, Emile, Felice and George are lucky to each go to school in three seperate countries (Felice in Paris, George in New York and Emille in London), but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ...

A charming book about asking for help and finding friendship in unexpected places. With humorous, charming and cute illustrations, the reader is taken on a journey learning about different sea creatures along the way. It is a wonderful book about the importance of being helpful and friendly to others and is a witness to how kindness has a ripple effect across people we come across day-to-day. A wonderful book that I would be proud to read to my children time and time again. Lydia Roshanzamir, A LoveReading4Kids Ambassador View Full Review
Puddocks’s Pond is written and illustrated by Nan Eshelby. It is an educational and entertaining children’s picture book written in rhyme. It is 36 pages long and each page has a beautiful, bright illustration to depict the story. Some illustrations are left blank for children to colour themselves. The drawings are quite detailed, so there is plenty on each page to encourage discussions about the animals and insects. Eshelby uses words that are easy for children to understand. Her clever rhymes tell the story of Puddock the frog. He tells the children that frogs speak to each ... View Full Review

A delightful story with many hidden messages to teach children about love, friendship, forgiveness and faithfulness. The illustrations are stunning and serve to enhance the story. It is a book that children will come back to again and again and is written in such a way as to help new readers develop their own reading skills.

I enjoy historical/period stories and have always been fascinated by hedgehogs. Elizabeth Morley’s book combines these two unexpected subjects and caught my interest. “The Smugglers of Hog’s Head Bay” does not disappoint. It is a delightful book with 187 pages and charming illustrations. Hedgehogs are the stars of this story, which is set in the 1770s on the Isle of Needles. The main character, Hoglinda, goes to stay with her cousin, Quiller, while her father, Admiral Hoglander sails to the colonies to help quell a rebellion. While she is there, she discovers that Quiller ... View Full Review
What a lovely, informative and beautifully illustrated book! The story is fun to read with young children. I have 2 granddaughters with whom I can read this book and they would both enjoy it in different ways. The three year old would enjoy the rhymes and illustrations. The seven year old would enjoy the astronomy information as she loves science. The star school at the end is wonderful as both girls would find it interesting and educational. I would happily read this story to my granddaughters and share it with friends. Judy Blake, A LoveReading4Kids Ambassador View Full Review
Lucy and the Secret Room is a unique book aimed at 9+ ages. The glossary at the end encourages independent reading, it brings STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) to the foreground in a fun way, potentially making the subjects much less intimidating. Darren John Charlton writes with a mixture of humour, mystery and excitement and is highly relatable to young readers. It touches on dealing with the death of a parent and friendships, and how to be a good friend. The illustrations add authenticity to the story and bring the imagination of the author to life. Really excited to read ... View Full Review
