Today I’m excited to show you some more books from Hachette Children’s Books and I’m sorry I’m showing these a little later than I wanted to.  I got these books a while ago but have had trouble photographing lots of them until now  I’ve already read one of them so the review for it will be on the blog very soon, but just take a look at these two books and let me know what your initial thoughts are! 😀 …

The first book is a fiction story and just look at that lovely cover with shiny golden details…

Moonlight Riders: Fire Horse by Linda Chapman – Could you be a True Rider?
When Amara joins the Moonlight Stable she’s instantly drawn to Ember, a beautiful black pony who seems to understand her innermost thoughts.  But Amara doesn’t realise quite how special Ember is, until one day he transforms into a Fire Pony right before her eyes!
Ember is in terrible danger as the rival stables’ Night Riders plot to steal his powers.  Can Amara fulfil her destiny and become Ember’s True Rider, before it’s too late?


The next book is a non-fiction for kids and it’s one I feel I would have benefitted from as a child…

You Don’t Have to be Loud: A Quiet Kid’s Guide to Being Heard by Ben Brooks – Do you ever feel like…
No one else is afraid of talking in front of people, making a mistake or saying the wrong thing?
Everywhere you look loud, confident people are happily chatting away in large groups.
If any of these things sound familiar, there’s good news.  You’re not alone.
My name is Ben Brooks – and I’m shy too.  I’ve written this book because growing up I would rather cut my own hair (not recommended) or spend a week at a Silent Retreat (true story – see inside!)
But BEING QUIET doesn’t make you strange or wrong or boring.  In fact, many shy people are SILENT SUPERHEROES who see BEING QUIET as their hidden SUPERPOWER!
We’ll take a look at some of the most famous, talented and brilliant people who are shy, but use their quietness to achieve awesome things, and I’ll share my own tips, advice and stories about growing up shy in a world that can sometimes feel, well, a bit too LOUD…


Don’t these books look and sound interesting?  I’ve already read Fire Horse and am currently reading the other book so expect these both to be reviewed on the blog very soon, so please do look out for them. 🙂
