Mistletoe and Murder, £6.99 Penguin

Robin Stevens

Mistletoe and Murder is the fifth book in the addictive series “A murder most unladylike mystery” which will be well known to many parents ,but has adult fans too. This book sees teenage detectives Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong spending Christmas in a snowy Cambridge, where danger lurks amongst the spires and bridges. The author Robin Stevens draws her inspiration from the Golden Age of Crime novelists, Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers and tells a ripping yarn!  We are looking forward to discussing this book at our Children’s Book Club on 3rd December.

The Newborn Child £12.99 Otter-Barry Books

Jackie Morris

Jackie Morris is a writer and artist who lives in West Wales and I first encountered her exquisite pictures whilst visiting St David’s Cathedral, Pembrokeshire. This new book from tiny press Otter-Barry is a celebration of first motherhood and love, for a newborn child who will change the world forever. Would be a special gift for new mothers at this advent time – or for anyone who loves Christmas.

Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups, £16.99 Simon and Schuster

Ben Holden

This is a beautiful collection of prose and poetry designed to be read  at bedtime by adults. Ben Holden who previously compiled the popular anthology “Poems that make Grown Men Cry” explores the science of sleep but also the wonder of storytelling. With sections entitled “Eventide”, “Once upon a time” and “Tread Softly” the collection features writing by Margaret Attwood, W B Yeats, Wendy Cope and Robert Macfarlane amongst others. Proceeds from the book will go to support local charity Readathon which is an additional reason to buy this inspiring book.
