Australian books make up nine out of our ten kids bestsellers this week! (We’ll forgive the delightful David Walliams for stealing the top spot with his hilarious tale of sliming horrible grown-ups.)
Two notable new picture book are on our bestsellers, rapper Adam Briggs’s debut picture book, Our Home, Our Heartbeat, adapted from his hit song ‘The Children Came Back’, and the gorgeous Respect by Aunty Fay Muir.
Beyond picture books and the inevitable Bluey, all age groups are catered for in our top ten. The fifth Real Pigeons instalment, Real Pigeons Peck Punches, is pleasing junior readers, Danielle Binks’s heartfelt debut, The Year the Maps Changed, is there for the middle grade crowd, and teens are happily getting stuck into the rollicking sci-fi blockbuster, Aurora Burning, by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
Pre-sales also launched Finding Our Heart into an early spot on our bestsellers list (it will be published on 1 June). Finding Our Heart is the young reader’s edition of Thomas Mayor’s bestselling adult book from 2019, Finding the Heart of the Nation: The Journey of the Uluru Statement towards Voice, Treaty and Truth.
