New children’s books for January 2014

Written by · Published Jan 27, 2014

Noble Conflict by Malorie Blackman

Picture books

That dog! by Gillian Shields

The eponymous dog leaves his mean minded family to seek his fortune on the stage. Much more fun!

Scruffy Bear and the lost ball by Christopher Wormell

Missing the John Lewis advert already and longing to see more rabbits and a bear? Then here’s the perfect picture book.

Short chapter books

Queen Bee! by Alan McDonald

Angela Nicely is a feisty new heroine from the author of the very popular Dirty Bertie series. Good news for little girls!

Choosing Crumble by Michael Rosen

Actually it’s the dog, Crumble, who does the choosing and it was Tony Ross who drew him. Bound to be good for a laugh.

Junior novels

Baby aliens got my teacher by Pamela Butchart

Why is Miss Jones being nice all of a sudden? There’s only one explanation!

Knightley and son by Rohan Gavin

A fast paced mystery adventure about a father/son detective team. I hope this is the start of a new series. Definitely one to look out for.

Teen novels

Noble Conflict by Malorie Blackman

Written by the current Children’s Laureate Noble Conflict is an edge of your seater, with ethics. Brilliant.

If you missed this when it came out in hardback in 2013, put your name down for the new paperback edition to carry you into January.
