Aaron Blabey Scholastic ISBN 9781760279493 RRP $14.99 Publication date May 2018 Age 7+ Reviewer Megan Stuart Who would have thought the Bad Guys would reach The New York Times best seller list? Well they have. Catch the latest Episode 7 which features dinosaurs and more illustrations than text. A good book for early readers.

Barry Jonsberg Tom Jellett Omnibus Books ISBN 9781782991399 RRP $12.99 Age 8+ Date of publication July 2017 Reviewer Megan Stuart This is one of the Omnibus Mates Series which are designed for early readers. This book also illustrates how to write to persuade. Mike (Michael when he’s in trouble) really wants a dog. We all know the arguments for and against but they are done well in this book and you have to admire the way Mike persists.
