Looking about the Children’s bookshelves this Australia Day, positions have varied considerably as to who gets to sit, at the top of the list. The ten selected, are what we are regularly seeing at the top, in popular bookstores, around the country.
We have wimpy kids, treehouses and wayward children scoring the first three places – curtesy of Kinney, Griffiths & Denton and Bound. These are closely followed by animals, you, strikes, perspectives, pigs and the deep. Although there are no unique titles in this bunch of books, they’re great page turners for young children, who eagerly follow these authors.
Out and about around bookstores this week, we find an interesting collection of new and intriguing books to tantalise our young teens, who are keen to while away the hours before jumping back into the school books.
From murder, lying and cruelty taking out the top three places this week - curtsey of Jackson, McManus and Black; we then dive into death, games, shatter lives, liars, wicked and beyond the end to complete our top ten. There seems to be a lot at stake for these new characters and life appears to be taking a turn for the worse. For keen teens, dying for a bit of drama - this week’s books won’t disappoint.
