Leonora Bolt: Eco Engineer – Lucy Brandt (Author) & Gladys Jose (Illustrator)
Uncle Luther is back! (And he’s got another outrageously evil plan to make his fortune!) BrightWorld is a brand new amusement park built under a MASSIVE snow globe, hidden in the Perilous Desert. The park is an environmental disaster, yet tickets are selling in their MILLIONS! What’s his secret?! Together with her friends and pet otter Twitchy, secret inventor Leonora Bolt must battle sandstorms, navigate the Bizarre Bazaar, and shut down Luther – FOR GOOD.
The Boy Who Saved a Bear – Nizrana Farook
Nuwan works at the library, delivering books. One day, he accidentally takes away a very valuable key that’s been hidden inside one of the books, and in the process thwarts the plans of some very dangerous thieves. On the run, he hides in a cave, only to discover in the middle of the night that he is sharing it with a big, hairy, terrifying bear! After some hair-raising moments, he and the bear reach an understanding and they travel on together, evading the bad guys and hoping the key will unlock the answers to the mystery so that they can stop running and return home.
One World: 24 Hours on Planet Earth – Nicola Davies (Author) & Jenni Desmond (Illustrator)
Where on Earth are you, right now? It’s late where I am and almost everyone’s asleep, but I’m awake, looking out into the night. Wondering. As the clock strikes midnight, a little girl and her sister visit animals of every shape and size, all around the world – discovering that, in some places, creatures have just started their day, where in others they’re already busy hunting for food. Turning the popular concept of time-zones on its head and combining it with a powerful climate message and delightful illustrations, this book is narrative non-fiction at its most spellbinding.
