Our five recommended books of the month:

The boy who biked the World
The boy who biked the world… On the road to Africa
Alastair Humphreys

This is book number one of a series of three books about a boy called Tom travelling the world on his bike. What you might like to know, is that the book is based on the real life adventures of Alastair Humphreys, who took his bike one day and went around the world and travelled for 4 years.
What we liked about it:
We thought any young aspiring explorer may enjoy these adventures and we love that he travels on a bike.

Medal for Leroy
Medal for Leroy
Michael Mopurgo

You may already know stories by Michael Mopurgo, he is a well know children author. This book tells a story of a dog who becomes a hero during the war. It’s also a friendship between a boy and his dog.
What we liked about it:
We love animal stories and we think this dog is a true hero.

Dirty Bertie
Dirty Bertie
Alan Macdonald

Now this guy is really up to mischief! He is not Horrid Henry nor Denis the Menace, but there is something really funny about Dirty Bertie and this can appeal to you wether you’re a boy or a girl.
What we liked about it:
The drawings and the stories are good fun. If you still like looking at images on a book page, and you like jokes, you will enjoy Dirty Bertie.

Gooey, chewy...
The Goey, chewy, rumble, plop book
Steve Alton & Nick Sharratt

This book is all you ever wanted to know about eating, digesting and … plopping. It explains the journey of food inside your body, with some excellent pop-up display and a very gross fake tongue to touch on the cover. The pop-ups make the book a bit precious (not for the little ones) and expensive. Maybe this could be a gift from Auntie Liz ?
What we liked about it:
The tongue on the cover is so gross, you won’t be able to resist touching it.

Aleksandra Mizielinska & Daniel Mizielinski

OK this one is not really a book to read as such. It’s a book to look at, to discover cities, rivers, borders, plants, facts, on maps. It’s called an Atlas – but with more information that you usually find on adult’s atlas.
What we liked about it:
It’s a really big book so you can see the maps in detail, and the drawings are amazing.
