PICTURE BOOK OF THE MONTH

Mica the Star Sailor

by Bertie Blackman

"Imagination is everything, and home is where you make it, in the debut picture book from artist and musician Bertie Blackman. If you think that name sounds familiar to you, you're right! Bertie is the daughter of renowned Australian painter Charles Blackman. Written as a dedication to her father who became ill with dementia when she was only 13, Mica the Star Sailor is the story of a young girl experiencing loss. One night, alone in her room and longing for her astronaut father, Mica follows a shooting star and finds herself spanning the endless universe in search of him."

FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH

The Stolen Prince of Cloudburst

by Jaclyn Moriarty

"The Cloud prince has returned! The King and Queen want to celebrate, but back on the other side of the Kingdom is Esther who is drearily prepping to head back to boarding school. But when Esther returns her two best friends have left, and there is a new teacher who has mastered the art of being awfully horrible in a very lovely way so that everyone is fooled. Esther's quirky and loveable narration of her story draws together this delightful adventure to be the next book set in the Kingdoms and Empires universe we needed."

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.
