The Peacock Detectives and Wilam: A Birrarung Story are both still taking out the title this week – both beautifully rendered books that explore a sense of place with tenderness and sensitivity.

And finally, if you just need a giggle, you can’t go wrong with The Bad Guys #9: The Big Bad Wolf by Aaron Blabey and Diary of An Awesome Friendly Kid by Jeff Kinney. These books are guaranteed to have you all in stitches.
