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

While sleep she is bitten on her bottom by a crocodile, which is the catalyst for a journey up to the menacing Three Cave Mountain led by her grandfather and joined by her sister and cousins.
A book for older children aged 7 and older to read, Grandfather And The Wolves is an engrossing and compelling story about overcoming your fears.

Its perfect for reading a chapter aloud before bed, but be warned, little readers will find it a difficult book to put down!
