Andrew McDonald and Ben Wood’s playful package of pigeon puns, Real Pigeons Fight Crime, tops our list of bestselling children’s and YA books from last week, followed by another crowd pleaser, Fing by David Walliams & Tony Ross.

We’re delighted to see the pigeon posse joined in the top 10 by two of its Readings Children’s Book Prize shortlistees – The Peacock Detectives and Black Cockatoo – proving that titular birds of a feather really do stick together.

Board and picture books are proving popular, including new instalments in the ‘Where’s My’ board book series (Where’s Mrs Kangaroo) and the Little People, Big Dreams series (Vivienne Westwood), as well as Anna Walker’s magical, sensitive story about a young girl who faces her fear of swimming, Lottie and Walter.

We’re also excited to see Bren MacDibble’s new middle-grade title The Dog Runner in the top 10. This survival tale about the uncertainty of climate change is a powerful and urgent read from the CBCA Award-winning author of How to Bee. Also in the top 10 is Soman Chaimani’s School of Good and Evil series, A Crystal of Time.
