There is real depth to Michelle Magorian’s story of a young boy taking part in a sponsored swim at his local pool. Ben is set to swim 100 lengths, then his mates Jack and Harry will finish the relay doing 50 lengths each. He’s a bit disdainful of the other swimmers, the loudly enthusiastic group of teenagers determined to complete it in record time, and Betty the old lady – ‘wrinkly’ as Harry and Jack would say – in the next lane. But he revises his opinion after he finishes his laps and there’s still no sign of his so-called friends. With Betty’s encouragement he complete all 200 laps himself. It gives him a sense of achievement that changes the way he thinks about himself. An insightful book from an author who really understands human nature. ~ Andrea Reece

Shortlisted for the UKLA 2016 Book Award in the 7 - 11 year old category. Greta needs a hero, someone to defeat the murderous giant Yuk. She goes to see Mr Stickler, proprietor of Happily Ever Afters, motto, ‘You bring the quest, we’ll do the rest’, intending to hire one. But things don’t go according to plan, and Greta finds herself paired with Hercufleas, a flea. Fleas are not the most obvious giant-killers, but like the best heroes, Hercules makes up in brains, courage and resolve for what he lacks in brawn. This wildly inventive story is packed full of bizarre and original scenes and characters, but never once lets the momentum of the story slip. Hercufleas and Greta are irresistible characters, and the book ends with a surprising and rewarding twist. Unbefleavable fun! ~ Andrea Reece
