Each month award-winning children’s author Giles Paley-Phillips picks three of the best reads for kids.
Broken Sky by L.A. Wetherley
A truly original and unique YA novel from the best-selling author of the ANGEL series. Set in an alternative 1940s where clashes in the sky help to maintain the peace. Wonderfully written with rich detail and I’m really very excited for the next book!
For ages 14+
The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright and Jim Field
Orchard Books £6.99
A lovely rhyming tale that fizzes off the page about a mouse looking for his roar, with fantastic illustrations by the brilliant Jim Field.
For ages 2-6 years
Lexiland by Suzi Moore
Secrets uncovered, mysteries unravelled and a friendship to last forever. A beautifully written story of grief and friendship by the super talented Suzi Moore. A book that will make you laugh and cry.
For ages 12+
