Top 10 Children’s fiction for January 2016

Summer holiday reading has paid off for Liz Pichon who has the potential to knock Diary of a Wimpy Kid out of the top spot with her amazing Tom Gates book series!

Wondering how authors become people who create stories? Lauren Child has a great website with some encouraging notes for those budding authors out there.  Ruby Redfort fans can pit their wits against code cracker for high security info or take the Spectrum test.  And… paper backs, check out the process for the cover shoots for Look into my eyes, Catch your death, Take your last breath and Feel the fear.
