New Additions for Spring/Summer

These are images of just some of the titles that have arrived in the library over the last few months – many of which (if they haven’t already been taken out!) can be found on our new additions shelves in the library reception. For a complete list of our recent acquisitions click here.

We purchase books for our collections a few times a year – many of these are suggested by our members using our suggestion book (found behind the desk). We would like to encourage these contributions on what you’d like to see in your library. We’ll be purchasing some more titles at the end of August so any suggestions before then would be greatly appreciated!

 

 

Mr Gum & The Dancing Bear – Book Review

This book review is by our member Ned, aged 9. 

Mr Gum & The Dancing Bear by Andy Stanton (part of the brilliant Mr Gum series!)

 

It’s about a bear called Padlock who comes strolling into the little town Lamomic Bibber. The bear has beautiful hazlenut eyes and shimmering golden fur. But the bear wasn’t happy. He was lost. Then polly came to the rescue. But where was Mr Gum and old Billy? Well, they were in Billy’s rancid butcher shop playing a game called The World Champion of the Butcher’s Shop lying contest. Read the book to find out more about Mr Gum and his terrible plans…

 

I liked this book because –

  • The drawings made me laugh.
  • The bear’s sadness made me sad.
  • It was bizarre.
  • It was funny.
  • The last bit made me happy.
  • The most funny bit was the measurements: as tall as 40 hamsters and as heavy as 19,000 grapes (the bear, not Mr Gum).
