New books we love
We review lots of new books every month, and here's where you can find the ones we liked best of all.

Looking for the best book for an older child? Take a look at our booklists. We may well have the answer - just see for yourself.
Use the Bookfinder to find the perfect book for you, your family and friends.
Get ready for Pyjamarama
Join us this June for one magical day in pyjamas and help BookTrust give every child a bedtime story.
Here's how we can help you
Participating Year 7 and 8 students can choose a book to keep from 17 titles, selected by experts.
