Instagram Update: Bob goes POP❗ by #mariondeuchars Thank you @laurencekingpub • Publishes 30th March “There’s a new artist in town making a new art, knocking Bob’s beak out of joint. The subsequent competition to see who is the best artist escalates as the two artists try to outdo each other. It all ends in tears, but the two realize that they are better working together rather than against each other. From Marion Deuchars comes this charming and funny follow-up to Bob the Artist and Bob’s Blue Period about art and friendship and working together.” #childrensbooks #picturebook #bookpost #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #freebie #books📚 #booklover #art #childrensfiction

Instagram Update: Now out in #paperback!!! #BLOOM by #NicolaSkinner 🌺🌻🌷🌼 @skinnerwrites • Published by @harpercollinsuk @harpercollinsch “Sorrel Fallowfield is so good at being good that teachers come to her when they need help remembering the school rules – and there are LOTS. Luckily, Sorrel doesn’t have any trouble following them, until the day she discovers a faded packet of Surprising Seeds buried under a tree in her backyard. Now she’s hearing voices, seeing things, experiencing an almost unstoppable urge to plant the Seeds in some very unusual places… and completely failing to win her school’s competition to find The Most Obedient Child of the School. And all that’s before flowers start growing out of her head…” #bookblogger #books📚 #mgfiction #childrensbook #bloom #freebie

Instagram Update: Can a criminal act ever be called a cry for help? #LastLesson by @Goodhand_James Thank you @penguinrandomhouse @penguinplatform • Out 2nd April 2020 “Last year, Ollie Morcombe was a star pupil, popular and a gifted musician. Then, after the accident, everything changed. Now he’s an outcast, a prime target of the school bullies who have made his life a living hell. Today – the last day of the school year – he’s brought those bullies a gift. A homemade pipe bomb. What has driven a model student to plan an unspeakable revenge? And with the clock ticking down to home time, what can anybody do to stop him?” #contemporary #ukauthor #ukya #bookpost #freebie #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #books📚 #booklover

Instagram Update: Fergus the Furball by #EmilySnape • Published by @ransompublishing “When Daniel’s parents scoot off to Scotland instead of celebrating his tenth birthday, leave his dipsy aunt in charge and give him a plant as his present (not the PET he’d pleaded for), can you really blame him for wishing he had a guinea pig instead of a brother? Now Daniel must somehow undo the magic before his parents find out, whilst also managing to defeat bullies, escape nutty chefs, make new friends and ultimately learn how much he truly does love his younger brother (even if he now eats his own poo).” #bookpost #bookblogger #childrensbooks #childrensfiction #freebie #booksofinstagram
