New children’s books in libraries this week

New children’s books in libraries this week

Sasha’s Secret by Cathy Cassidy

  • The third book in the Lost and Found series

“Sasha seems to have it all. She’s the lead singer of an amazing band, she’s starting to get famous online and it seems like the coolest boy in school might have a crush on her. Nobody could imagine that Sasha has a huge secret that is growing too big to hide. The band hasn’t noticed that her struggles with anxiety are overwhelming her, but when a world-famous rock-star invites the band to record music at his country mansion, and when Sasha starts having blackouts, she has a feeling that she won’t be able to keep it secret much longer. Will she be able to hide her problems, or will Sasha’s secret be exposed?”

I love my teacher by Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd

  • A colourful fun-filled picture book all about school!

“Put your coat on the hook, play with friends and join in all the day’s activities. Start with show and tell, reading and writing, then playtime, making things, and singing. Teachers makes sure every school day is the best! This sweet and simple story follows a typical school day, from morning hello’s to hometime. It is perfect for sharing with your little one so they know just what to expect when they start school.”

My cousin is a time traveller by David Solomons

  • From the winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize

“Luke’s dad has bought a lot of gadgets recently and not one of them works as it’s supposed to. Maybe it’s because a machine-from-the-future is stalking Bromley, playing havoc with all the tech and trying to stop Star Lad going on a date. Could this be the Rise of the Machines? Luke knows what he must do – he just needs his fellow SCARF members to help or it will be the end of everything.”

Take a chance on me by Beth Garrod

  • brand new funny, sunny, feel-good rom com for teens

“Meg had a disastrous first kiss she would rather forget, but this is the summer she puts it behind her. This is the summer she has a perfect, swoony, just-like-in-the-movies kiss with a hot boy – and what better setting than the sun-drenched Greek island she’s holidaying on? But with three very different boys vying for her attention, this mission to reset her first kiss may be more complicated than she bargained for.”
