New Children’s Summer Reading Books to try at Spencers Wood Library

Why not try a new book this Summer from Spencers Wood Library…?

9781447231479[1]The Wildest Cowboy by Garth Jennings

“When cheerful salesman, Bingo B. Brown, rolls his wagon full of Wild West goodies into town, he’s met with a stony silence. This is clearly no place for novelty bow ties and elastic lassos. Not even Bingo’s dancing dog can raise a smile! But this town is not just joyless, it’s dangerous. And as Bingo soon discovers, the people of the town are not just scary, they’re also scared.”

9781444930238[1]The Cherry Tree Farm Story Collection by Enid Blyton

“Perfect for holidays or rainy day reading, and an ideal gift for anyone who loved the stories during their own childhood to pass on to the next generation of readers. Benjy, Penny, Rory and Sheila are spending the holidays with their aunt and uncle at Cherry Tree Farm. They play with the animals and learn to feed them, roam the countryside and hunt for the mysterious Tammylan, who lives deep in the woods. Everywhere is teeming with adventure and the children are bound to get into mischief! This collections brings together some of Enid Blyton’s earliest and most imaginative stories.”

images[9]Fabio the World’s Greatest Flamingo Detective by Laura James

“In a small town on the banks of Lake Laloozee lives the world’s greatest flamingo detective. His name is Fabio. He’s not tall or strong, but slight and pink. And he’s very, very clever. When Fabio and his giraffe associate Gilbert (terrible at disguises) drop in to the Hotel Royale for a lemonade (pink, naturally), Fabio is persuaded to judge the hotel’s talent contest. But when the most promising contestant – Julia the jazz-singing hippopotamus – goes missing, Fabio must put his thinking cap back on and solve the mystery!”

Come and meet Laura James at the Wokingham Children’s Book Festival in October, more information about the festival and how to book tickets can be found here: http://wokingham-tc.gov.uk/bookfest/laura-james/
