The Junior Book Club Round Up:

We have had another very successful year with our Junior Book Clubs. They never failed to provide a bit of excitement down in the shop on Monday afternoons, debating and arguing over their chosen books. 

Some of their favourites from this year include;

'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo. Heather (12) said, 'It's a very realistic story of friendship and loyalty.'
'Tom Gates Everything's Amazing (sort of)' by Liz Pichon. This will appeal to Wimpy Kid fans and is a crazy, fun read. 'I really liked the story line.' - Leah (11)

However, 'The Recruit' by Robert Muchamore is no doubt, the Junior Book Club's top read from this year. 'The Recruit' is the first in a 12 part series called CHERUB and is an action packed thriller that readers of all levels and taste seem to enjoy. Aaron (12) put it best when he said, 'It's a real blockbuster!'

Below are the books they have chosen to read over the summer holidays;

Group 1:
'Outlaw' by Michael Morpurgo
'Dark Lord The Teenage Years' by Jamie Thomson
'The Mysterious Benedict Society' by Trenton Lee Stewart

Group 2:
'Lobster Boy' by Rodman Philbrick
'Claws' by Mick & Rachel Grinti
'Tao' by John Newman
'Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson

Group 3:
'Mad Dogs' (Cherub) by Robert Muchamore
'The Boy Who Lost His Face' by Louis Sachar
'Dead End' by Jack Gantos

The Junior Book Clubs will be meeting up again in September. If you think your child would be interested in joining one of the clubs please let us know and we'll add you to the waiting list.
