Today I’m pleased to share with you the second set of books I received from publisher Walker Books. Yes, it’s the 1st of April and I was going to do an April fools blog post, but given what’s happened in my life recently (you can read about it here) I’m going to be easy on myself and just post this instead and I suppose with this post I’m April fooling you that it’s March when it isn’t any more, lol.
Anyway, today I’m sharing so many wonderful new children’s books that came from Walker Books and a huge thank you to Hannah for all of these. Now I forgot to take a photo of the books together, except as a stack, so you’ll have a treat of seeing each individual picture of each book and it’s blurb below instead of my usual picture of picture books together, etc.. 🙂 First let’s look at the stack and then the books in turn…
I love a book stack, don’t you? 😀 You can clearly see two of the books on offer, but I’ll put down better pics of them all below. The blurbs are short descriptions from an email from the publisher and not the true blurbs. The first is a middle grade children’s book and the first of a series…
Swift and Hawk: Cyberspies by Logan Macx – When their families mysteriously disappear, Swift and Hawk, teen experts in AI and robotics, are recruited by the secretive Möbius Programme to crack an unbreakable code.
And now for a teen non-fiction book…
Become an App Inventor by Karen Lang & Selim Tezel – With this engaging guide from MITeen Press, anyone can design and publish their own apps – no experience necessary! – and get inspired by true stories of young app creators around the world.
All the rest of the books are picture books and let’s start with the first which is a gift set of both a board book and toy…
Five Minutes’ Peace: Book and Toy Gift Set by Jill Murphy – Snuggle up with this gorgeous gift box of the classic story board book Five Minutes’ Peace and an adorable soft toy.
It’s Mine! by Emma Yarlett – Once there was a mysterious thing. Nobody knew how it got there, it just was. “It’s mine, all MINE!” say Mouse, Frog, Fox and Bear. But what is it? And who will get to keep it in the end?
Not That Pet! by Smriti Halls & Rosalind Beardshaw – Hooray! Mabel and her family are getting a pet! There’s no time to lose! But which kind of animal should they choose? Mabel has the perfect idea, but will her family agree?
The Boy With Flowers in His Hair by Jarvis – David is the boy with flowers in his hair, sweet and gentle, just like his petals. But when David’s flowers begin to fall, through kindness and creativity his best friend finds a way to give David his colour back…
John Asgard’s Windrush Child by John Asgard & Sophie Bass – With one last hug, Windrush child says goodbye to his grandmother and the shores of his Caribbean home, before stepping into an adventure across the ocean, to an unknown horizon and a sky full of hope.
What do you think of all these books? I’ve already read a lot of the picture books so the reviews for those will be appearing very soon on this blog. In the meantime let me know what you’re currently reading. And have a great April Fools day! 🙂

I hope you enjoy it 🙂 I actually haven’t read a King book yet 😮 though I’ve seen some of his books adapted on screen, not sure which to start with.
Which ones have you seen ? Did you enjoy them? He has written so many books that there is something for everyone in his back catalogue 🙂

I haven’t seen too many but I do remember the creepiness of It which I saw when I was way too young for it and it freaked me out a bit, lol! And I remember watching The Shining too though it was some time ago now. I definitely will check out his books, 🙂 Which would you recommend is good for someone starting reading King?
Well at the moment I am re-reading the Shining and that is a classic take of a haunted hotel and deeply psychological scares. I would absolutely recommend that one!
