September/October 2015 Off the Shelf – OUT NOW!

OTS_Sept_e-cardSurprise! Off the Shelf has arrived a little sooner than expected. Why the rush? We simply had to get in early to wish you the best for the 2015 Diary of a Wimpy Kid Read-a-thon Challenge. The Read-a-thon debuted last year to a huge reception from young readers all around Australia, not to mention teachers and parents who were delighted to see children roaring through eight entire books in less than seven weeks.

This year, the bar is raised: to beat the challenge (and get the chance to enter a context to meet and interview Wimpy creator Jeff Kinney!), Read-a-thon entrants will have to read all nine Wimpy books between 1 September and 16 October. Inside, we hear from teachers and students about why they’re excited for a new Wimpy Kid Read-a-thon.

Also in this issue: you’ll hear from the beloved picture book team Jane Godwin and Anna Walker; a teacher shares the thrill of reading the first published novel by a former student; and three very famous names write about the importance of a positive outlook, and how to nurture this in young people.

Enjoy the coming break, and the start of the next term. We’ll be back soon with our end-of-year issue.
