Six for Sunday is Steph at alittlebutalot‘s creation with a prompt each week to blog about.
Today’s prompt is:
Oh, so hard to narrow down to six! There were SO many great books last year!
After much deliberation, I’ve cheated and chosen six picture books and six MG.
Circle by Mac Barnett & Jon Klassen
Can Cat and Bird Be Friends? by Coll Muir
The Suitcase by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros
The Steves by Morag Hood
Beast Feast by Emma Yarlett
The signed copy of The Fate of Fausto by Oliver Jeffers that my friend had dedicated to me (especially as its signed to Bellis rather than Rachael!)
And for my MG six:
Rumblestar by Abi Elphinstone (cover art by Carrie May and Jenny Richards)
Where the River Runs Gold by Sita Brahmachari (cover art by Evan Hollingdale)
Wild Folk Rising by Sylvia Linsteadt, cover art by Sandra Dieckmann
The Girl Who Speaks Bearby Sophie Anderson, illustrated by Kathrin Honesta
North Child by Edith Pattou, cover art by
Top Marks For Murder by Robin Stevens (cover art by Nina Tara)
(OK I confess, that last one really represents the whole MMU series as I read them all last year – thank you, Amy for getting me reading them!)
Have you read any of these? Do we share any top picks? What were your 2019 favourites?
