New Books for Spring – Our Highlights
Spring is blooming with a whole host of new characters, plot twists and debut authors. Not only are these books filled with pancakes and Easter eggs, this season also sees titles focusing on personal wellbeing (in aid of Mental Health Awareness week 9th-15th May) and stories to expand the imagination (2022 marks the 100th Anniversary of Children’s Book Week 3rd-9th May).
As the days are getting longer and brighter now is the perfect opportunity to delve into a new adventure book, including returns from Browns favourites Michael Morpurgo and Michelle Paver, or head outside on your very own quest to explore nature, guided by the awe-inspiring Sir David Attenborough.
Our hand-picked titles for Early Years this season encourage little ones to embrace their feelings (discover how Gretel the Mammoth overcomes anxiety and how David feels vulnerable when his floral hair begins to fall). With the help of Duggee, Paddington and Bluey, enquiring minds can learn about festivals, being unique and getting outside to play.

Spring sees a time of truly exciting new publishing. From cultural icon Margaret Atwood comes a brilliant collection of essays, answering questions on climate crisis and the rise of Trump to granola and zombies. Or quite contrastingly open the doors to a world of ancient magic with Olivie Blake’s fantasy novel of the year The Atlas Six. These recommendations are loaded with suspense, character, whodunits and page-turning narratives.
