We’ve got some absolutely FANTASTIC new books out this month – here’s what you can find in bookshops today:

It’s publication week for Hubble Bubble: The Super-Spooky Fright Night! by Tracey Corderoy and Joe Berger, the third young fiction title from the creators of the highly-acclaimed Hubble Bubble picture books. This volume sees Granny’s halloween party go off with a bang, a birthday trip to a build-a-teddy factory career out of control, and well, you can probably guess who magics up penguins at the local swimming pool! A bewitching brew of domestic dottiness, fizzy fun and chuckle-inducing charm, these books are ideal for newly independent readers with a thirst for magic and mayhem. Here’s a look inside:

Zoe’s Rescue Zoo: The Lucky Snow Leopard by Amelia Cobb is in shops now – the sixth fabulous story in the highly collectible Zoe’s Rescue Zoo series, featuring a go-getting central character, talking animals, compelling story lines and evocative illustrations. The usually sweet little snow leopard cub has started to be very naughty. Could it be because his mother is pregnant and he is not looking forward to being a big brother? Thankfully, Zoe is on hand to help out… You can read the first chapter here:

The Grunts in a Jam by Philip Ardagh and Axel Scheffler is out now – the third book in the superlatively silly Grunts series. The gloriously grubby Grunt family head to a country fair so Mrs Grunt’s mother can enter her homemade jam in the Preserves, Jams and Jellies Competition. There’s nothing in that plan to suggest they’ll encounter sabotage, bad poetry and prison, is there? Hmm. This is The Grunts we’re talking about… Here’s a look inside:

And finally, it’s publication week for Witchworld by Emma Fischel – the first volume in an exciting new series for 9+ year olds. With an ingeniously imaginative story from Emma, stunning cover artwork from Ottoline creator Chris Riddell, and a brilliantly bewitching new heroine, this is a fabulous foray into fantastical fiction for older readers – Sabrina with a smartphone!
