Happy Like Soccer Paperback "Unexpected emotional depth. Harry Miller's Run Hardback From the masterful David Almond comes a joyful, wistful story of boyhood, running, and tales of days gone by, in a beautiful gift edition illustrated in full color. Harry Potter: Magical Film Projections: Patronus Charm Hardback Using black line illustrations on framed acetate pages, this enchanting book allows fans to project their favorite scenes from the Harry Potter films at home with a flashlight. A sharp, well-observed teenage drama that is bang up to date. Life for teenagers these days can seem like an endless popularity contest, everything played out in the spotlight of social media.
Just-dumped Rob hits a nerve when he tells Jade that everyone fancies her best friend more anyway; comparing herself to Becky, Jade is horribly conscious of coming second in everything. Archie is devastated at the news his parents are splitting up. He and his dad are very close and when he realises that his father is leaving for another man — something his two sisters have already worked out — the shock has a physical impact.
Archie has already been the victim of bullying and, perhaps to avoid a repeat, has become friends with the bullies at his new school; he is terrified of their reaction to the news. Annabel Pitcher portrays Archie with real insight and readers will understand completely the agony he feels.
She chooses to end the story in a supermarket where the aisles, through their very prosaic normality, open up a world of hope and new beginnings. Published by dyslexia specialists Barrington Stoke, this will be accessible to all readers and is worth recommending to all readers. Inspired by a passion to articulate the complex realities of life for teenagers — especially boys — around sexuality, loss, depression and family dynamics, Annabel has created an extraordinary narrator in Archie, a fabulous plotline and a cracking cast of characters as the story is propelled towards a remarkable final encounter.
As an ex-English teacher, I have seen first-hand how much these books mean to readers who long to access stories but are daunted by words. As a mum of two sons, it was interesting trying to get inside the head of a teenage boy. Beautiful full page illustrations by Alex T Smith send more shivers down the spine; one to read with all the lights on. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic teen readers. Barrington Stoke is the foremost publisher of dyslexia friendly books and those for reluctant readers. Cal is picked on at school by Anu, who humiliates him and hurts him for being smart and geeky.
New boy Jacob is singled out by the other class bully for being scruffy, poor, an outsider. Cal thinks they could be friends — they share in interest in superheroes — but Jacob, who uses a foodbank, is super sensitive to pity. Eventually the two do become friends and, with the help of a girl called Freya, find a way to expose those who like to hurt the weak and less fortunate. He wants a knife to protect him and when he finally gets his hands on one it makes him feel 10 feet tall.
But how long can the knife keep him safe? A candid conversation with the real owner of the weapon makes Sam see things differently. Taut and tightly plotted this short novel provides readers with lots to think about. Congratulations therefore to Barrington Stoke for this new edition which is specifically designed to be accessible to all readers, including those with dyslexia. It centres on the friendship of George small but clever and Lenny strong, but simple-minded , and their struggles in the rural California of the Great Depression.
George is a young man struggling to make a life for himself while caring for his child-like cousin Lennie. The setting is now the south coast of England, where George gets by working as a DJ in pubs, and the bleak cash in hand, hand to mouth existence rings very true. A spare, thought-provoking reworking of a classic.
Of Mice and Men, the powerful story of tragedy and beauty, critically acclaimed across the world and studied in UK schools at GCSE level, will now be available in an accessible format for all readers. Interest Age Teen Reading Age 7 - In a Nutshell: love and laughs This witty comedy of modern manners will have young people snorting with laughter and quite possibly squirming with embarrassed recognition too. A new online school dating site offers hope however and his sister and her super-cool boyfriend have all sorts of advice for Joe on ways to make himself more eligible.
Acca lives in Laurentum, a small town on the Tiber, in the days before the founding of Rome. The arrival of migrants from Troy and the threat of war brings the two girls together. Tinged with myth as well as a real sense of the classical past this is truly gripping stuff, Katniss Everdeen look to your laurels! Life for poor young women in the century was extremely limited. Georgina is employed as housemaid to a wealthy family, but finds it as hard as life in the orphanage she recently left.
A bright young woman, she runs away disguised as a boy, actions that open up new opportunities. Tautly plotted, this gothic tale with its determined young heroines will fascinate teenage girls from the first page to the last. The human survivors of a devastating natural disaster live in isolated and strictly-governed communities. Caz and Will have already defied the odds escaping the ruins of a derelict city to reach the relative safety of a Settlement and Caz has never given up hope that her father too is still alive. When they reach the place he was last seen, the white darkness hides terrifying dangers.
Cole and his brother Ruben live in East London, as much a part of the landscape as the sooty railway bridges and flat grey sky. A chance encounter in the Live and Let Live pub with a girl who resembles their dead sister, and a monkey, a sudden act of violence, and the four of them are in a car and heading to Scotland. At times chilling, with a palpable sense of foreboding, the book ends on a note of pure joy. Sharp, funny, moving and written in rat-a-tat sentences that turn teen speak into a kind of poetry. All sweet-hearted Aman wanted was for her dad to stay a little longer, but he died before she had chance to read her special letter to him.
The truth is revealed with poignant, page-turning urgency, leading to a shocking finale that sees Aman grasp a second vital chance to read her love-filled letter. I relished every word. Rosa and Benjamin meet, fall in love and marry but because they are slaves, their lives are not their own. Their escape is full of drama and tension, but what will shock young readers is the casual brutality and hateful self-justification of the white slave owners Rosa encounters. Linda Newbery brings the suffragette movement to life through the eyes of one vividly drawn young woman, making us all aware of our continuing responsibility to stand up for what we believe, and to use our votes.
Hudson, the teen narrator of her new novel, is well aware of his own tendency to misunderstand or misread what others are saying, so the moment when he and his dad suddenly connect with one another is particularly powerful. That it takes place in a car wash only makes it more convincing.

The term dyslexia literally means 'difficulty with words'. In reality, it covers a whole spectrum of problems, not just with reading, writing and spelling, but also with comprehension, memory and organisational skills. It may take longer than their classmates but most of them get there in the end. These emergent readers will finally crack the code, often aged 9 or 10, but often they are not ready to tackle the longer more challenging books their contemporaries enjoy.
They need much shorter books, but still by first class authors, with inspiring content, real characters and a gripping plot. It used to be thought that boys were three times more likely to be dyslexic than girls but evidence now shows that this is not the case. Both sexes are affected. However, studies by Dyslexia Action show that three times as many boys as girls received additional teaching because of their dyslexia. One theory is that boys are more disruptive when they are trying to deal with dyslexia so they are more likely to be noticed by teachers and given the right help.
Girls have been shown to be better at developing coping mechanisms so their symptoms may go unnoticed for years before they receive the proper specialist tuition.

One Duck Stuck by Phyllis Root looks like an everyday book, but inside you will find a brilliantly repetitive storyline, that promotes teamwork, and mathematical skills!

The premise is simple, using 2 different dinosaurs every page illustrates a pair of opposites. My son loves how funny the illustrations are and clearly enjoys the rigidity of the opposite concepts. Well, I love this book. While it obviously speaks about God, it is not specific about one religion. The text is melodic and the rhymes are fun to read aloud.
The illustrations by David Catrow fly off the page and are wonderfully inclusive as well. How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? I really like this book because it asks if dinosaurs do all these naughty things. Of course, in the end, the dinosaurs remember their manners and go to bed with hugs and kisses and the lights off!

Thanks for this fabulous list. My son-in-law has recently become a fully time Dad and I wanted to surprise him with some books that he and our grand-daughter can share.
Rhyming books are so good for the brain — they stick in our heads and create lifetime memories — they do for the 21st century child what poetry did for those gone before, make a connection to the fabulousness of the language and the glory of the spoken word.
