Last week’s bestselling books for young readers feature a terrific array of books – from the extremely necessary Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary (‘from Aardvark to Zozimus’), to the gorgeous, heartfelt new picture book from French duo Jo Witek and Christine Roussey.

We’re also delighted that J.C. Jones is our top seller again for Run, Pip, Run – the winner of this year’s Readings Children’s Book Prize. This story for 9+ comes with our highest recommendation, and with guest judge and author Sally Rippin’s as well! Rippin writes: ‘Pip is a spirited character full of heart and courage who readers will fall in love with from the first page. Her story is wild and adventurous yet written in such a way that it always feels believable as the author skilfully and compassionately introduces us to a complex and sometimes confronting world many of us will never know.’

Speaking of the Readings Children’s Book Prize… Don’t forget that you can buy the whole shortlist of six books in a specially-priced bundle ($69.99 was $84.45).
