Junior Book Club: October 2013

Junior rounds up the best new children's books for October

Mouseton Abbey – The Missing Diamond by Nick Page and Tim Hutchinson (Make Believe Ideas, £10.99)

Here at Junior we have been thrilled to welcome televisual comfort blanket, Downton Abbey, back into our Sunday night schedule, so imagine our delight when this cute children’s book inspired by the series landed on our desk. Better still, it's not just the gloriously old-fashioned setting, language and costumery of this charming tribute that sent our hearts a-flutter, the story itself revolves around another great love of ours – cheese

While the TV show is probably little past your child’s bedtime, this is a perfect alternative, swapping bitchy butlers for bumbling hand-knitted animal characters with truly inspired titles (Dowager Lady Gouda and Footman Monterey Jack et al) Add a dose of mystery, amazingly detailed illustrations and fabulously eccentric Englishness from protagonist, Roquefort, and there you have a rather spiffy series-in-the-making.

For the children, books really matter and we should provide them interesting books to read. I truly like australian assignment writing service update about the books for kids which are valuable for all parents. I already getting benefit from it and able to download books to read for kids and for myself as well.
