Jeff Kinney you have done it again, The Meltdown is bound to be a Wimpy Kid fan favourite and had me engrossed from beginning to end. Greg Heffley kept me entertained and had me hooked from the beginning, when his imagination runs wild – thinking about his own talking toilet, unfrozen cavemen and cyborg legs so he can sleep on his way to school.
This book is about the ancient art of storytelling and centers around Mina and her rare powers. You will be taken on a journey of bravery, tragedy, dreams becoming reality, integrity and a little romance.
13 year old Solli Raphael is wise beyond his years – “The future needs you and me to create equality across all levels of humanity – his messages true, inspirational and proof that no matter how old you are you can achieve anything.
If you or your young one love creating with Lego and love books with new ideas then this is perfect for you. This Lego book by DK is full of colour, Lego, ideas, creations and inspiration for all your Lego blocks.
Missing is one that wouldn’t let me put it down. Sue’s book is engrossing, raw and emotional, especially when you think you know how it is going to end and it isn’t how you thought it would be.
This book is gripping, confronting, overwhelming, engaging and perfect for teens and young adults.
The main reason why I am looking forward to attending this festival, is that it brings people together from across Australia who have a love for the creative arts, to celebrate books, writing, reading, poetry, illustrations and all of their creators.
Clare Atkins, thank you for writing this book and for giving me insight into a world in which I had previously little knowledge about. It is raw, compelling and challenging and for that I am grateful.
