Today I’m excited to show you some new books that I’ve received from Barrington Stoke, the children’s book publisher that specialises in dyslexia-friendly books! 🙂  I’ve got a lot of reviews coming up of books for Barrington Stoke books which I’ve gotten over the last few weeks, so please look out of those 😀 , but in the meantime let’s take a look at the new books from this brilliant publisher (and a big thank you to Kirstin Lamb for these, especially as I was very late in requesting them and she was so prompt in sending them over – you’re the best<3 !)!  Descriptions of these aren’t confirmed blurbs but rather from the email I got, anyway let’s take a look 😀 …

Welcome to Trash Land by Steve Cole & Oriol Vidal – A search for treasure reveals the toxic consequences of modern life in this adventure set against the backdrop of the world’s largest e-waste dump.
Theo lives and works in Agbogbloshie in Ghana, a vast dumping ground for the world’s broken electronics. He spends his days scouring the trash for scraps of metal to sell for cash, while dreaming of going to school and escaping this harsh life. The money Theo makes is barely enough to pay for lessons, so when when Emmanuel turns up with talk of buried treasure, Theo sees a chance to get out of Trashland. But Emmanuel’s presence draws the attention of a local gang, and Theo starts to wonder if his new friend is keeping dangerous secrets …


I can’t wait to start reading these.  They all sound amazing but I’m especially excited about welcome to Trash Land as I’ve already read a previous title (World Burn Down) by the author and illustrator combo and it was really good so I can’t wait to see what happens in that one, although of course I’m excited to read all of them 😀  Reviews will appear as soon as I’m able to get them out, but be prepared for a bit of an influx of children’s book reviews starting later this week, I’m getting back into the swing of reviewing…and LOVING it! 🙂
