Octopus Shocktopus (Peter Bently)

Waterstones Says

A brilliantly bonkers story about an octopus who lives on the roof, by two award-winning and bestselling picture book creators.

When a giant octopus arrives, the children LOVE their new friend; it makes the perfect slide and is fantastic at football! But some of the grown-ups aren't so pleased. Will they drive it away . . . or will they realise just how helpful an octopus can be?

A warm and witty rhyming story about welcoming newcomers. Sunglasses at the ready - this book has zingy fluorescent ink on the cover and inside illustrations.

Peter Bently has won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and his book with Helen Oxenbury, King Jack and the Dragon, was named an American Library Association Notable Book of the Year.

Steven Lenton is the illustrator of the Shifty McGifty series by Tracey Corderoy, and also illustrates books by David Baddiel and Frank Cottrell-Boyce. His books have won awards such as the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award and have been selected for the WHSmith's Children's Book of the Year and Tom Fletcher Book Club.

Every Nosy Crow paperback picture book comes with a free "Stories Aloud" audio recording. Just scan the QR code and listen along!

Front Desk (Kelly Yang)

Waterstones Says  

Based on Yang's own childhood experiences, Front Desk is an irresistibly charming novel from the author of Parachutes that spotlights issues key to the immigrant experience through the engaging story of Mia and her motel-based family.

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize Younger Readers Prize 2022

Mia Tang has a lot of secrets:

1. She lives in a motel, not a big house.
2. Her parents hide immigrants.
3. She wants to be a writer.

It will take all of Mia's courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year. Will she be able to hold on to her job, help the immigrants and guests, and go for her dreams?
