'Very little Cinderalla' by Teresa Heapy and Sue Heap is really delightful especially for very small people who like to do the things big people do but can't. It is Cinderella with a twist minus any arguments about ridiculously tiny impossible waists. In fact it goes as far away from this as possible and ends up with a lost welly instead of a lost slipper and really is very sweet with a mixture of different sized illustrations and text-it will make you smile.
'13 hours' by Narinder Dhami is a cracking read for, I think 9+ which raises the not often written about issue of young carers. It's written in a clever way as part of an unravelling suspense/thriller which then changes into being much more about changing relationships and revealing secrets centred around a young carer called Anni. The first chapter is really compelling and I found myself hooked and needing to read on until I'd finished (luckily it was the weekend). Something different to fantasy and murky worlds this is very real life and one for an Easter read.
Lastly one I've been waiting for 'Dreams of Freedom in words and pictures'-a collection of words and pictures from inspirational people.
Every school should have a copy to go alongside the beautiful 'We are all born free' ...
