Next month we are enormously proud to be publishing Little Bits of Sky – a breathtaking debut for 9-12 year old readers by S.E. Durrant. Moving, wise, and beautifully written, this is an incredibly special book – here’s what we said about it last year when we acquired it. And today, you can take a look inside for the first time.
Next week we’ll be holding a special edition of the Nosy Crow Reading Group to discuss Little Bits of Sky – our lucky attendees have received early proof copies in advance of publication in May. The reading group is fully booked, but if you missed the chance to register for a place, here’s your chance to read the opening chapter of Little Bits of Sky before the book appears in shops:
It’s already receiving some fantastic reviews. The Bookseller’s Fiona Noble wrote: “This blew me away, what a very special debut. Tender, heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting.” Author Natasha Farrant said: “This is so beautiful! A perfect little book.” And author-illustrator Emma Chichester Clarke called the book “So good and fresh and believable.”
Next week’s reading group is currently fully booked, but you can add your name to the waiting list in case of cancellations with the form below.
