February’s Books of the Month

There’s a wonderful array of page-turners for the Toddler to the Teen this month. For readers aged 9+ our MEGA book of the month is Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins, the author of the blockbusting Hunger Games – a fantasy adventure for young Gregor and his talkative little sister Boots, in their perilous bid to save the Underland.

And while we’re talking MEGA books don’t miss Sword of Light by Katherine Roberts (11+). Book One of The Pendragon Legacy, it is an Arthurian adventure filled with romance, danger and courage… and a female hero, Rhianna, who just happens to be King Arthur’s daughter together with her best friend, Elphin, a Prince of Avalon!
