How wonderful it is to see so many new Australian books in our kids & YA bestsellers this week, and across all age groups too! The second instalment in Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff’s explosive The Aurora Cycle YA sci-fi series, Aurora Burning launched at number one, followed by the thoughtful middle grade debut from Danielle Binks, The Year the Maps Changed, Alex Dyson’s music-fuelled YA debut, When It Drops and the gorgeous picture book, Respect, by Aunty Fay Muir, Sue Lawson and Lisa Kennedy.
We are, of course, extremely pumped for two best-selling additions to our favourite junior fiction series, Real Pigeons and The Bad Guys. In Real Pigeons Peck Punches the Pigeons face a traitor in their own nest (gasp!) and Dawn of the Underlord sees Mr Snake going on a blood-curdling rampage. We can’t think of a better way to lift our spirits at the moment than picking up one of these hilarious reads.
