New books for Primary – November, 2011

Pizza Cake by Morris Gleitzman


Save ten lives with a paperclip, discover how a big banana can ruin your sister’s holiday, make a new friend with a garbage bin, develop a taste for sheep’s spleen and chips, bounce on a vampire’s bed, rescue your dad from a dog and a spider, use a toilet roll to get justice, upset the neighbours with a pickaxe, eat a pizza that makes you fearless, and imagine a world where teachers earn more money than a rock star.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent. Or at least sort of.

The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?

The Carousel by Ursula Dubosarsky, illus. by Walter di Qual

One winter’s day my dad and I
Went down to see the carousel.
We stood and watched as round and round
The little horses rose and fell.

So begins the magical journey of a small girl and a wooden horse.

A journey of music and mirrors, of green hills and sunlit skies, of wishes and freedom.

From this much-loved author and brilliant new illustrator comes a glowing, timeless picture book that celebrates the enduring wonder of the carousel.

But brave King Jack is more than a match for dragons and terrible beasties!  With a band of faithful knights and a mighty castle too, this magical, make-believe adventure is just perfect for little boys and brave children everywhere!
