El Deafo by Cece Bell

El Deafo is a 2015 Newbery Honor Book and deservedly so. It is a story all of us (young & old) can relate to. Starting a new school and making new friends, we’ve all been there and it can be difficult, try doing all of that with a large hearing aid attached to your chest

Cece Bell’s charming autobiographical story is both funny & moving. A graphic novel that tells the story of her formative years as she learns to cope and adjust to her hearing loss. Cece loses her hearing at 4 years old. She experiences education in a school for deaf children and then later she experiences main stream schooling. More than anything Cece just wants to be treated normally, to fit in and make friends.

The Hunter by Joe Sparrow

One aristocratic hunter is about to face his toughest quarry: a mythical beast composed of all his vanguished trophies!

In a time centuries before our own, one arrogant hunter has grown bored of sport. Only the legends of a mythical beast excite him now, but when he goes hunting for the creature he quickly discovers that he is outmatched. Because this beast is not any mythical animal but is composed of all the hunted prey killed in the past, and it is most certainly out for revenge.

Lost Property by Andy Poyiadgi

What if all the things you ever lost, each valuable possession you vowed to treasure but could not keep safe, all the misplaced items you never found, were all to re-appear?

Gerald is a postman, much like many other postmen. One day, having lost a precious and personal item, he visits his local lost and found. Only to find far more than he bargained for, because in this “self storage”, each and every one of Gerald’s lost possessions has been kept and contained. How each item got there and why they were under one roof was a mystery. But they were all there…

Hilda & The Black Hound by Luke Pearson

The city of Trolberg has yet more secrets to unravel in an adventure where Hilda discovers her world is not quite held together in the way she thought it was…

Hilda is sat in her tent, dwarfed by volumes of the Greater Fjords Wildlife Chronicles with a flashlight and her restless companion, Twig. But Hilda’s not in the Fjords and it isn’t raining. Hilda’s pitched a tent in her room and it’s been days since she’s been out.

In Hilda’s new adventure, she meets the Nisse: a mischievous but charismatic bunch of misfits who occupy a world beside – but, also somehow within – our own and where the rules of physics don’t quite match up. Meanwhile, on the streets of Trolberg, a dark specter looms…
