October Goss

Hello fellow readers! It's me, Abby Bronte and today I've got loads to tell you :)

First thing is... I went to Sue Hampton's book signing at her house and I bought two books. One was called, 'Just for one day', and the other was called 'Traces'. Check out Sue Hampton and buy her books, they are awesome!!

Secondly, Jacqueline Wilson has published the third book in the Hetty Feather series. The book is called, 'Emerald Star' and I will give you the link at the bottom of the page if you wish to buy it.

Now time for Book and Author of the week, which are... Alice.B.Lovely and John Boyne!

Alice.B.Lovely is a book I read quite recently. This book is about a girl called Edie, who doesn't think she needs a nanny and wishes her parents would just let her look after herself. 

Edie also has a LOT of problems. Her mum and dad are split up but still keep fighting, she 
keeps getting angry with everyone and feels really down.

But then comes along the new nanny; Alice.B.Lovely. She is a mysterious and magical sixteen year old girl who Edie grows to like. Everything is suddenly starting to look much more exciting...

But is Alice.B.Lovely the person everyone thinks she is? Find out!! This book is written by Karen McCombie.

John Boyne is the author of 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'. He has written three novels for children, and and eight for adults. He has won various awards for his literacy skills and is now very well known.

Some of you may have seen the movie of 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'. It is a book that touches many hearts around the globe.

I wanted to tell all of you about a fantastic magazine I found. The magazine is called Wordsmith and is all about writing. It has poems, short stories, puzzles, cool competitions and loads more packed inside it. Children and teens are encouraged to send their own literacy works to be put in the magazine.

My parents bought me a subscription to the magazine, and it is really interesting. Hope you can check it out!!
