I am highlighting the WBD books on my blog and must admit it took longer than usual to find them all…..still missing Alex Rider from my collection! It was sold out from a few places I checked so definitely a popular choice this year.
The Day We Met the Queen by Onjali Q. Raúf, Illustrated by Pippa Curnick. Welcome back to the world featuring the world’s most famous refugee. After their adventures in London trying to save Ahmet, the gang are back. This time they have been invited to meet the Queen. However, not all are happy and proud of them…Brendan the Bully is set to cause trouble. It was so wonderful to read this short story, especially after such acclaim for The Boy at the Back of the Class.
