TWELVE BOOKS TILL CHRISTMAS: PICKLED PEPPER BOOKS

Seriously, independent bookshops? We would be  A LOT worse off without them.  So when I hear that a new one is opening up, and it’s a children’s bookshop,  I’ll be backing it all the way! This then leads me to Urmi and Steven of Pickle Pepper books and their brilliant list  of two halves:

For 9-12 year olds:

1) One Dog and His Boy / Eva Ibbotson

2) Frozen in Time /  Ali Sparks

3) Farm Boy / Michael Morpurgo

4) Ally’s World /Karen McCombie

5) The Weird Stone of Brisingamen / Alan Garner

6)The Sleeping Army / Francesca Simon
For 13+

1) Long Lankin /Lindsey Barraclough

2) Artichoke Hearts / Sita Bramhachari

3) The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas /John Boyne

4) Noughts and Crosses / Malorie Blackman

5) Dark Matter / Michele Paver

6)My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece / Annabel Pitcher

Pickled Pepper Books will be opening next year but to keep up with their latest news on location and all other interesting tidbits be  sure to check out their twitter!

  1. We’re also planning to open an indie children’s bookshop this year (in Brentwood, Essex). Meeting up with Urmi tomorrow to share ideas :)
