Holiday reading part two: Ask the book buyer about the best children's reads for your holiday...
As promised, this fortnight we’re continuing with our summer reads theme for the book edit, turning the focus now to children’s books. We’ve put our heads together to recommend a selection of our latest, favourite books for young readers here – and of course we’ll be instore all summer with more ideas!
A big hitter this summer already for children is David Walliams’ latest rip-roaring read, The World’s Worst Teachers - ‘terrifying tales’ of ‘gruesome grown-ups’ (half price at Jarrold, with a free whoopee cushion while stocks last). While for little ones we are running a buy one get one free offer across a selection of picture paperbacks here in the department, with plenty to choose from.
On the road, round the pool, or hanging out at home, these books are perfect for distracting and entertaining young readers over the summer holidays.
