Today I have more amazing books to share which came through my door, this time from the lovely people at Walker Books.  My previous Walker Books haul post was a bit late which is why this one is so soon afterwards.  These amazing books are all out already and there’s an interesting mix for both older and younger children.  This time I’ve photographed them in size order, starting with the biggest for no reason at all really, lol.  Descriptions are from a brief email so let’s take a look…

Some nice and big hardbacks…

I’m so excited for so many of these books, especially the last two as they just sound so interesting and have such brilliant illustrations.  Reviews will appear as soon as I can get them done.  I have a lot of recent book post on top of older books I’m still trying to get done so these reviews might take a bit of time to appear but I’m in a groove at the moment and doing well so I’ll hopefully be able to get these out quite quickly. 🙂

What do you think of these books?  What books are you looking forward to reading this month?  Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂
