It’s no surprise to see that the highly anticipated new book in the bestselling Hunger Games series has rocketed to the top of our kids and YA bestseller list this week. Set 64 years before the events of The Hunger Games, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is the story of ambitious teenager (and future President of Panem) Coriolanus Snow. Our reviewer calls it ‘bloody, bold and resolute’.
Also on the bestseller list this week we have two wonderful books from Indigenous writers: Our Home, Our Heartbeat , a joyful picture book that celebrates past and present Indigenous legends; and Black Cockatoo, a quietly powerful story about culture and family that was shortlisted for the 2019 Readings Children’s Book Prize.
Other bestsellers include the most recent book from comedy genius David Williams (Slime), the newest addition to the popular Little People Big Dream series (Greta Thunberg), the compelling new novel from Patrick Ness (Burn), and not one, not two, but four books featuring our favourite furry superstar, Bluey.
