Last week’s list of top 10 bestselling books for young people include a joyous story about a cheeky water buffalo who thinks he’s a pet dog (Shallow in the Deep End), a new picture book featuring the irrepressible Pig the Pug (Pig the Star) and our gorgeous, darkly funny children’s book of the month (Whimsy & Woe).

Athina Clarke, the children’s book buyer at Readings Malvern, says: ‘ Whimsy & Woe has it all: incredibly courageous children (hooray!), an evil calculating aunt, the ignominious Ignatius Solt (boo!) and a despicable one-legged pirate (hiss!), captivity and misery in a boarding house populated by an outlandish clientele (gasp!) and a heroic escape from a treacherous storm, imprisonment in a swamp and a wolf with razor-sharp teeth…’

Two YA novels also appear on this list, both set in worlds already loved by readers. Tower of Dawn is the much-anticipated sixth book in Sarah J. Maas’s bestselling fantasy series, Throne of Glass. And Mark Smith’s Wilder Country is the follow-up to his action-packed thriller, The Road to Winter, which was shortlisted for this year’s Readings Young Adult Book Prize.
