OUR BOOKS OF THE MONTH

PICTURE BOOK OF THE MONTH

Dog

by Shaun Tan

"Everybody knows that dogs are ‘man’s best friend’, but how often do we take the time to think about how long that saying has been true? Dog is a picture book for all ages, a wonderfully expressed reflection on the relationship between dogs and humans. It’s a beautifully illustrated and poetically written love letter from humanity to our four-legged companions, who have walked alongside us with love and loyalty for over 15,000 years. Where would we be without the help, love and protection of our constant companions?"

- Sanjo

FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH

The Wizard in My Shed 

by Simon Farnaby

"I could not put this kooky, fabulous book down! It is soooo much fun. It’s clever, has great characters and involves magic and history. And guinea pig poo. Lots of guinea pig poo. Misfit Rose’s world is turned upside down when a wizard from the Dark Ages turns up near her local shopping mall. Can he help her become cool and save her family? Or maybe it’s up to her to save him? This is snort-out-loud funny goodness. 7+"

CHRISTMAS BOOKS

A BIT ABOUT US

Better Read Kids is a wonderful venture in children’s literature. Owners of Better Read Than Dead, Newtown, and parents to four kids each, Pat and Terry have learned that it’s never too early to instill a love of reading in children.


Extra space was dedicated to Better Read Kids within Better Read Than Dead to promote an extensive range of books for children, from babies to young adults. Our bookstore has since been recognised as the best for kids books in both range and selection by Time Out Magazine Sydney.
