September 2021 Book of the Month | This bulging compendium is loaded with all-new jaw-dropping, eye-popping, brain-bending facts and bright, bold photography! This year it's even bigger with four brand new fact-packed chapters. It pairs the planet's weirdest facts with the coolest and strangest true stories.
A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month September 2021 | For all those who are already fans of Roald’s Dahl’s awesome stories and for newcomers to them, this is a splendid introduction to some of the favourite characters and the most dramatic, hilarious, spinechilling and adventuresome stories that are his storytelling legacy. Following a brief account of Roald Dahl’s childhood and his famous writing shed, 15 of his top titles are cleverly explored through their main characters and the key features of the stories. There is James and his extraordinary crew from the awesome travelling peach in James and the Giant Peach; the delightful Charlie Bucket whose winning ticket takes him to Mr Wonka’s astonishing chocolate factory and a heap of adventures with some less lovely children including Veruca Salt and Augustus Gloop; the delightful Danny and his father and some fabulous pheasant poaching plots and the truly horrible Mr and Mrs Twit who have a whole book to themselves. The battle between Matilda and the awful Miss Trunchbull, the BFG’s encounter with the Queen and the utterly terrifying Witches – all of these and more are brought to life in these brief retellings which make clever use of letters, recipes and newspaper clippings. As in the originals, all are fabulously illustrated by Quentin Blake. The inclusion of an activity pack adds an interactive element to the book and enhances enjoyment of it.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! annual is an international bestseller and it’s easy to see why. With its mix of bizarre facts, and facts about the bizarre, plus quizzes, puzzles, games and activities, this will provide kids with hours of fun. There are sections on animals, geography and natural wonders, travel and food amongst other things. The pages are bright and attractive, full of amazing photographs of course. ~ Andrea Reece
