I'm afraid that the 101 Things to do... book has already gone out for review.

The latest book in is a picture book for the under 5s:

Sir Laughalot by Tony Mitton and Sara Warburton

pollylolly

Thanks for that Michael think I read the Saturday one but wonder if it would have made more sense from book one ?

We've got an advance, proof copy of Mistress of the Storm by M.L. Welsh for review. Suitable for age 10+.

Verity Gallant knows she’ll never be as pretty and popular as Poppy, her perfect little sister – she doesn’t quite fit in. But when a mysterious stranger hands her an ancient red book, everything changes.

Verity becomes embroiled in a tale of dark magic and intrigue; she uncovers old rivalries and discovers new friends. Together, she, Henry and Martha explore the secrets stirring in the ancient harbour town of Wellow.

But what will it take to stop a powerful witch hell-bent on revenge?

Ta Beth, sorry for the delay - it's in the post.

Latest book for review:
Philippa Fisher and the Stone Fairy's Promise - Liz Kessler

'Philippa is spending New Year with her best friend, Robyn. The last person she expects to see is her fairy godsister, Daisy. But Daisy, assigned to a new job Above The Clouds, has discovered something terrible is going to happen, and she needs to warn Philippa - fast.

Meanwhile, out on the misty moors, something precious has been taken from an ancient stone circle - and it's up to Philippa and Daisy to prevent an unimaginable disaster.

With Philippa transported to ATC and Daisy stuck on earth, their friendship is tested to the limits. What they don't know is that the fairy godmothers in charge have a special plan for them. Time literally stops as they desperately try to fulfill their mission.'
