New releases galore on the Children’s fiction front! There is a new Tom Gates adventure, catch up with Liz Pichon’s hero at your library. And what could be on the 78th storey of Andy and Terry’s treehouse? Any one else find this series a really good way to learn their 13 times tables?

Dunger, by Joy Cowley
Its mainly about William and Melissa wanted to go to Queenstown but they had to go and look after their Grandma and grandpa. As far as they are concerned this is NOT a holiday. I recommend its for 8-15 year olds.

The Long Haul, by Jeff Kinney
This book is about Greg and his family going on a what seemed like six month holiday.
The main characters are Greg, his older brother Rodrick, Mum, Dad and his little brother Manny.
I think the funniest part of the trip was when Greg and Rodrick entered Rodrick’s shoes in a smelliest shoe competition and they won!
I think that the pictures in the book made it more exciting.

Alice-Miranda on holiday, by Jacqueline Harvey
I think Alice Miranda on holiday is a very entertaining book book for ages 7-10.
It isn’t my favourite book because it is a book which is an easier read then others and I like to read challenging books. Therefore I rate Alice Miranda on holiday a 4/5.

What’s in Molly’s…. suitcase?, by Vanessa Jane Townsend
This is a NZ book. This book is about going on holiday. You need a passport to go on holiday. You will need some sun protection, and some sparkle shoes and some non-sparkle shoes. I have a pair of beautiful boots.

Fancy Nancy and the wedding of the century, by Jane O’Connor
Fancy Nancy is going to be part of a wedding and she dreams about a fancy place to go on holiday and what she will wear. The wedding turns out very different but she still has a wonderful time.
A lovely read for anyone going to a wedding.
