Reviewer Fiona shares her picks for 2017…
Because of You – Pip Harry
A poignant and important story, this book challenged and changed my perceptions.
The Start of Me and You – Emery Lord
I devoured this delightful story in a day. It left me happy and inspired.
The Princess Bride – William Goldman
Miss Six and I read this together and it was wonderful. We both adored this rollicking tale of bumbling heroes.
Flame in the Mist – Renee Ahdieh
A gorgeous tale set in ancient Japan with samurai warriors and a head-strong heroine with a secret. This gripping tale of revenge is beautifully written and easily one of my top picks of 2017 YA releases.
The Sloth Who Came to Stay – Margaret Wild
This tale of fast-paced modern family life and the delightful sloth that changes everything is my favourite picture book of the year.
