The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day
This was a fascinating book following the different realities of Maisie Day.  It follows Maisie's brithday and how different choices impact upon what happens to her.  Mixing science with the narrative.  My daughter enjoyed the story but found it easier to read along with me as she had lots of questions about the science.

The City of Secret Rivers
Author: Jacob Sager Weinstein
This is a brilliant book that we loved reading together.  It is a great adventure about a yong girl who moves to London with her Mum unaware of her families links to a war that has existed for many years over the magical power of the rivers under London.  It's not until her Mum is kidnapped that she gets pulled into this world.  There are lots of twists and turns and trying to figure out the mystery and who Hyacinth can trust.  Full of lots of interesting characters and a whole new hidden world under the streets of London.  Great for fans of magical books like Harry Potter.

Brightstorm: A Sky-Ship Adventure
Author: Vashti Hardy
We loved this book the story is beautifully written.  It is a great adventure for both boys and girls.  Following their adventure to find out what happened to their Father on his expedition after they are orphaned.  Meeting lots of great friends and animals along the way.  The author describes this world so well that you can really imagine yourself their in the story.  We hope there are more books in this series.

Rebel Voices: The Rise of Votes for Women
Author: Louise K Stewart Illustrator: Eve Lloyd Knight
My daughter loved this book and was couldn't put it down.  It really opened her eyes to understand about how women have come to obtain the right to vote and how this is different around the world.  The subject is explained in a way that older children can understand the politics of the right to vote.  The layout of the book and the artwork make it feel different from other factual books she has read.  This is a brilliant book.

The Bolds' Great Adventure: World Book Day 2018
Author: Julian Clary Illustrator: David Roberts
Another great Bold's book.  Fred and Amelia Bold tell Betty and Bobby a secret they have been hiding from them.  I recommend this book for boys and girls.
