New Books January - Young

Katherine Rundell’s new book The Good Thieves (617607) won the Foyles children’s book of the year in 2019 and is another rip roaring adventure that will appeal to young and old alike. Set in the 1920s, in this story we meet Vita who has just travelled by boat from England to New York to help her grandfather, who has been cheated out of his home and possessions by a notorious conman with Mafia connections. Vita is determined to outwit these enemies and get her grandad’s home back but to do so she must team up with some young accomplices with skills that will come in useful for the daring times ahead. Full of suspense, this fast-paced story is a treat for the imagination.

If you already enjoy books by Katherine Rundell then you may like The Butterfly Circus by Francesca Armour-Chelu (617610). Enter the magic of the circus in this story where sisters Tansy and Belle are the finale of the show. Disaster strikes when Tansy attempts a spectacular jump in their trapeze act and falls which means Tansy is restricted to sweeping floors, while watching her sister become the star of the show. When Belle mysteriously vanishes, Tansy must find all the courage and strength she can to rescue her sister and bring her back safely. If you are looking for a different author to start the new year with then give this book a try.
