“The Shopping Expedition” by Allan Ahlberg
Allan Ahlberg is one of the most acclaimed and successful authors of children’s books writing today.
Come shopping with me and Mum and little Harry and Wilf the Wonderdog. But this is no ordinary shopping trip: the car breaks down, the rain keeps coming and the road becomes a jungle, then a river… It’s an expedition where anything might happen. In fact, it probably will!
“Dirtie Bertie My Book of Stuff” by David Roberts
Bertie has his own fun-packed book of activities, chock full of entertaining stuff to do. All created by the Master of Muck himself, from ‘join-the-nit’ puzzles to creepy crawly crosswords, this book is guaranteed to keep children quiet for hours…apart from all the giggling
“Ellie the Homesick Puppy” by Holly Webb
Megan is really excited about moving. She can’t wait to take her Golden Labrador Ellie for walks in the countryside near their new house. But Mum and Dad say that Ellie will be upset by the move, and she has to go and stay with Gran. Megan really misses her – and Ellie will do anything to get home to Megan.
“Frozen in Time” by Ali Sparkes
1956 Freddy and Polly have always known their father is a brilliant scientist. He puts them into cryonic suspension, their hearts frozen until their father wakes them up again. They know it will only be for an hour or two, so there’s nothing to worry about…
2009 Ben and Rachel have resigned themselves to a long, boring summer. Then they find the hidden underground vault in the garden-and inside it two frozen figures, a boy and a girl.
