Hey, hey, hey! Welcome back to the Big Kids Book Club.
It’s Tuesday, so what should we talk about today? How about new books!
Today we look at a book that’s either just been released or soon to be hitting shelves, but either way they should be on your wish lists!
Today’s book: The Boy in the Post by Holly Rivers
Publisher: Chicken House
Release Date: 03/03/2022
A charming action-packed adventure across the Atlantic from acclaimed author Holly Rivers! Siblings Orinthia and Seafra Shalloo accept a summer job from eccentric Grandy, who has collected a menagerie of furry and feathered posties known as animails.
The children are especially fond of Geronimo, a homing pelican. But when the big bird fails to return from a delivery, Taber – the youngest sibling – is devastated; so much so, he mails himself to New York, where Geronimo was sent.
Orinthia and Seafra follow suit, stealing a precious stamp and hopping in a freight crate – and soon all are embarked on an extraordinarily daring first-class adventure …
A warm, adventurous and action-packed story from acclaimed author Holly Rivers, author of Demelza & the Spectre Detectors.
A brillantly-imagined fantasy world with a vintage feel and a trio of characters you’ll long to be friends with. As a child, Holly was a lead actress in ITV’s original Worst Witch series!
Perfect for fans of M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman’s Adventures on Trains series
