Wonder by RJ Palacio
Wonder - R.J. Palacio

Read by Vincenza: Beautiful book. Main character's point of view was well written and his sister's and others were also good. Was uplifting and empowering, but not empowered. Recommended for upper primary ages.

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver
Liesl & Po - Lauren Oliver

Read by Melissa: I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations scattered throughout accurately reflect the atmosphere of the book.  A simple, beautiful, gentle story with a lovely use of language (reminds me a little of Glenda Millard's Kingdom of Silk series).  The author's note at the end makes it all the more poignant.

The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo
The Tiger Rising - Kate DiCamillo

Read by Tiffany:  A heart wrenching, beautiful, amazing tale of loss and grief and the need to acknowledge, communicate and be allowed to feel the emotions we have. Many thanks to Tony for passing this to me to read. Highly recommended!

Septimus Heap series (pt 2): Queste; Syren; Darke; Fyre by Angie Sage
Septimus Heap series: Queste; Syren; Darke; Fyre - Angie Sage

Read by Tiffany: Queste is a slightly darker tale than previous volumes, but still a straightforward adventure with our favourite characters. Syren continues the adventurous tale, full of fun, intrigue, wizards, pirates, ghosts, double-crossing, friendships and a dragon – simple, easy to read fun.

Darke brings to the fore the theme of the world needing balance - Magyk and Alchemy, light and darke - as well as potential for redemption. It begins with picking up previous threads, and takes a little while to get them all woven into shape. Well written, full of action and adventure.

Fyre rounds out the tale very satisfactorily, both story and relationships. Well written, full of action, a great end to this part of the story. (to be continued in the forthcoming Todhunter Moon series …)
