Moominvalley for the Curious Explorer Moomin Pull Out Pop Up Book:Tove Jansson
Nevermoor – the first book in the Trials of Morrigan Crow – is by Jessica Townsend, abother Australian author – and it has been touted as the new Harry Potter, with good reason, and it’s a lovely and fun magical tale about a girl who is cursed to die on her eleventh birthday, who discovers she can escape her fate by competing in the trials of the Wundrous Society. This edition has a lovely hidden illustration under the cover – both sprinkled with gold – and pretty illustrated chapter…
The Magic Misfits Misfits by actor Neil Patrick Harris is another very fun read. This volume features all sorts of trickery not only in the story, but also in the book itself, with secrets and ciphers and codes to find starting from the contents page as well as throughout the book. Excellent fun.
A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Harding: beautifully designed with a hidden cover under the dust jacket. This dark historical otherworldly tale is about a girl who can be possessed by the spirits of the dead.
