Scholastic Book Club Giveaway: Books for tweens

Regular readers will know that I LOVE reading. I post a book review on my blog pretty much every week because that’s how fast I read. But I don’t just love books myself, I love good quality children’s books too – books that entertain and inform. They can be funny or moving or make you think. As long as they’re anything but boring or formulaic.

I love nothing more than to share my love of books for teens and tweens with my daughter. When I discover something new, I can’t wait for her to read it and enjoy it too.

And I love to share these finds with my readers too. World Book Day may be over for the year, but that doesn’t mean enthusiasm for children’s books and children’s reading should stop. Which is why I’m very pleased that Scholastic has offered a pack of books for tweens for me to give away to one of my lucky readers. Now, I’ll be honest, I haven’t read these books, but I’m absolutely convinced they would be just the sort of books my daughter and I would enjoy.

Make More Noise, Giveaway, Books for tweens, Scholastic Book Club giveaway

First up is Make More Noise – new stories in honour of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. What better time to read a book like this? The 100th anniversary has helped children (and some adults too!) understand how hard women fought for the vote and to remember that it really wasn’t that long ago that women didn’t have the vote at all. This book of short stories for 11-14 year olds is all about women being strong and making their mark and includes war stories, political stories, sports stories, ghost stories and stories about real-life heroines. Authors include Sally Nicholls, Katherine Woodfine, Ally Kennen and Emma Carroll (I read Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll recently and it was stunning).

Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy is recommended for 11-13 year olds. It is described as steampunk bliss: flying ships, brave rescues, talking animals and dark secrets! It is recommended for fans of Cogheart, which I read recently. No human being has ever reached South Polaris, the bottommost wilderness of the world. Now word has reached Lontown that Arthur and Maudie’s father – a famous explorer – has died in the race to get there first. The awful news is bad enough, but it’s also stained with scandal. Their father has been accused of trying to steal fuel from his rivals! The twins know it can’t be true. How can they clear his name? They’ll have to launch their own expedition on the majestic winged ship Aurora, on a quest full of danger, magic and dark villains…

Flying Tips for Flightless Birds by Kelly McCaughrain is also recommended for 11-13 year olds. Twins Finch and Birdie are growing up in the circus. When Birdie has a terrifying trapeze accident, she finds herself grounded. Is this the end of their double-act? Will Birdie be flightless forever?

Fancy winning all three books? Follow the instructions on the widget below to enter. UK entry only.

Good luck!

Scholastic Book Club Giveaway: Books for tweens

Scholastic Book Clubs feature the best children’s books around from over 70 publishers often at up to 70% off RRP.  For every order over £10, Scholastic will donate 25% back in books and resources to a school of the customer’s choosing.  A new selection of books is added at least 6 times a year (to coincide with school terms).

Book clubs are often run by schools and nurseries but parents don’t have to be part of an organised book club, or receive a catalogue from a school or nursery to take part.  They can buy directly from the Scholastic shop (https://shop.scholastic.co.uk/) and nominate the school or nursery to receive the 25% back at the checkout.
