"I remember my mum reading this book at bedtime to my sister and I when about 9 or 10, at the time I found it gripping and slightly scary!  After unpacking another box of books from the garage, I was thrilled to find it and so started reading it again last month.  I am delighted to say I am not disappointed...this magical adventure story of a brother and sister's quest to stop the Morrigan from destroying the world is fantastic.   The friendships they make along the way and the lessons they learn about trust and resilience are great.  I hope you find it as gripping as I am."  Miss Marlow

I have recently rediscovered this book after enjoying it as a child- in fact I even remember my teachers reading it to me!  After sharing it with my own daughter at home, I decided to bring it into school to share with Rocket Class.  They have absolutely loved hearing stories such as: 'Pandora's Box', 'Icarus' and 'Helen of Troy.'  You can't beat the old classics!

I have recently discovered this fantastic non-fiction book, a must read for any keen geographers and historians. This book is beautifully illustrated and is full of lots of interesting facts.  For example did you know the town of Beverley was named after the beavers, that use to live there? Or the Heinz factory in Wigan makes over 1.5 million baked beans every day! A fun book perfect for sharing with family and friends!

Miss Mandelson is reading...

If time is tight (which it often is for me!), what's the one thing that you should be doing to improve your health and wellbeing?  In this book, Dr Michael Mosley reveals "surprisingly simple top tips that are scientifically proven to change your life".  I read a chapter of this book each night before bed and, although I have not adopted all the suggestions into my daily routine, I do practise quite a few, for example having a cold shower each morning, standing on one leg whilst I brush my teeth and eating an apple a day!  This is a book for grown ups but includes many of the tips that we talk about at school when we explore the 5 ways to wellbeing.
