New Children’s Books for July

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Welcome to summer from Lovereading4kids! July is the month that children’s (and adults’) favourite J.K. Rowling has her birthday. It’s also the school holidays and your kids have all that time on their hands! Why not help us help you to fill some of those sunny days with great reading for them to dive into? Our special Summer Reading section makes it even easier for you and your kids to find that perfect adventure this summer. Read on to find out more …

Author of the Month Maggie Stiefvater

Our musically gifted Author of the Month is the best-selling Maggie Stiefvater (she plays the celtic harp, you know). The Virginia, USA, based mother of two (who admits that she became a writer because you can work in pyjamas) has published the third in her Wolves of Mercy Falls series, following the lives of werewolves, Sam and Grace. In Shiver, they found each other, in Linger they fought to be together and now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher. All the titles in this series, as well as Maggie’s other novels – the fantastical, dark faerie tales Ballad and Lament – are featured on the site and all have extracts for you to download for free! We also have 5 proof copies of her latest book, The Scorpio Races, to give away – it’s not published until October so the winners will get to read the whole thing early!

Hold Fire on Doubt! Our Guest Editor, Anne Fine

Well, they don’t come much better than this! Our multi award-winning Guest Editor this month is the brilliant Anne Fine. Winner of numerous accolades including the Carnegie Medal, Anne is the creator of the loveable Mrs. Doubtfire. Her novel The Tulip Touch won the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year Award and was adapted for TV by the BBC. Her latest book, The Devil Walks, is a deliciously dark, gripping and surprising gothic tale in which a boy’s hidden past comes to life. This and Anne’s previous titles are all available on the site. What’s more, Anne has agreed to share with us some of the books that have influenced her over the years.
