As we race towards the end of the year and the Christmas season, there are even more brand-new reads than usual arriving in bookshops.
New releases are especially appealing for prolific young readers, who like to discover new authors and series. And if you’re choosing a book as a gift, it’s often safest to go for something ‘brand new’, which the recipient is less likely to already own or have read.
Our kids’ team have selected the brand-new children’s novels they’re most looking forward to sharing with kids they know.
And, ten picture books with stunning illustrations, read-aloud appeal, and kid-friendly themes which they can’t wait to give as gifts or read aloud.
You can view these lists by clicking on the direct links above, or check out dozens of lists curated by theme and age group (for both kids and adults) in the book lists section of our site.
