Today it’s another book haul post and these two lovely books today come from the wonderful people at Andersen Press and I am grateful to both them and Walker Books for allowing me to get hold of these books.  There’s a picture book that’s perfect for Black History Month which if you didn’t know is the whole of October, as well as a brilliant addition to The Bolds series of books in the form of an activity book which I’m sure plenty of children will enjoy having fun with for and before Christmas.

Here are the books and brief descriptions (via an email I received before getting them) below:

The Undefeated by Kwame Alexander & Kadir Nelson  – A powerful and important ode to black history: the strength and bravery of everyday people and the grit, passion, and perseverance of some of the world’s greatest artists, athletes, and activists.

The Bolds’ Christmas Cracker by Julian Clary & David Roberts – Merry Christmas! The Bolds are back with a bumper book of jolly japes. It’s packed with rib-tickling jokes and puzzles including wordsearches, crosswords, mazes, riddles and spot the difference to keep kids entertained.


I can’t wait to get stuck in and read/look at these two books.  Reviews for these books will be appearing soon, very soon and certainly well in time for Christmas, so please keep an eye out especially if you are interested in one of these 🙂
