Julia Eccleshare's Picks of the Month

Each month Julia Eccleshare, a leading authority in children's literature, chooses a small selection of her favourites from the month. They will be generally new releases but occasionally she may select a new edition of a firm favourite and we will list them here.  All are highly recommended with Julia's seal of approval.
