The Weekly Top 10 Children’s Bestseller List

Every Monday Better Reading brings you the Top 10 Bestselling Children’s Book list – it’s the perfect place to find new book ideas for your little reader.

First up this week is Bluey! Bluey: The Beach (#1) will no doubt be gracing many bookshelves; We expect there will be thousands of happy little campers receiving these books for Christmas this year!

Remaining on the list is Diary of a Wimpy Kid #14: Wrecking Ball (#2). An unexpected inheritance gives the Heffley family a chance to make major improvements to their home. But they soon find that construction isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. When things get rough, will the Heffleys be able to stay…or will they be forced to move?

Bluey: Fruit Bat is number (#3), one of our favourite episodes where Bluey learns about some of the sacrifices parents have to make for their kids.

Bluey, again! At (#4) we have Bluey: Time to Play. Stickers to place, puzzles to solve and more.

The Beast of Buckingham Palace(#5) by David Walliams has joined the list this week. Fly into a fiery and fantastical future with No. 1 bestselling author David Walliams, in an epic adventure of myth and legend, good and evil, and one small boy who must save the world…

The 117-Storey Treehouse comes in at (#6). Andy and Terry’s amazing treehouse now has 13 new storeys, including a tiny-horse level, a pyjama-party room, an Underpants Museum, a photo-bombing booth, a waiting room, a Door of Doom, a circus, a giant-fighting-robot arena, a traffic school, a water-ski park filled with flesh-eating piranhas and a treehouse visitor centre with a 24-hour information desk, a penguin-powered flying treehouse tour bus and a gift shop.

The Treehouse Joke Book by Andy Griffiths & Terry Denton is up next and will have everyone laughing, and remains on the list at (#7).

One of our favourite Christmas books Pig the Elf (#8) by Aaron Blabey returns to the list on the lead up to the big day!

We’re Going on an Elf Chase(#9) by Martha Mumford is also a great Christmas read. Four bunnies set off on a jolly Christmas lift-the-flap adventure to find ten little elves hidden under the flaps. You ‘ll have to run, run, run if you’re going to catch them all! And there are lots of obstacles along the way, from clippy-cloppy reindeer to roaring polar bears and flippy-flappy penguins.

Whip out your war cry and pull on your party pants. It’s the ultimate battle between bad and baaad! It’s season finale time, playas! At (#10) Aaron Blabey’s The Bad Guys Episode 10: The Baddest Day Ever.

    Hi. Is there a reason Aurora Rising is included in this list? It’s more YA than kids.

  3. Kacy McKenzie

    Any of the Terry Denton books- quick to read and funny.

    Latest one I would name – 91 but the other 6 are great too.
