Happy World Book Day from Aura Libraries!
We asked a few of our lovely librarians for some book recommendations to help celebrate World Book Day 2019. Let us know what you think of their recommendations, or pop into your local library to have a chat with them about the books they chose! Here’s what they came up with:
Sam Roberts, based at Deeside Library said: “I would highly recommend Terry Pratchett’s series Discworld this World Book Day, as well as Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files, another fantastic series”.
Sue Hipkiss, based at Mold Library said: “I would like to share with you my book recommendations for World Book Day. For reading with younger children I recommend Isle of You by David LaRochelle which is a wonderful book to share and has beautiful illustrations by Jaime Kim. For confident readers I recommend Fing by David Walliams. This is another very funny story with the main character Myrtle Meek on a quest to find a Fing. Myrtle starts her quest by visiting the spooky library vaults to delve into the dusty pages of the mysterious Monsterpedia and so the hilarious adventures begin!”
Sian Roberts, based at Mold Library recommends: “Cymru ar y Map / Wales on the Map for the lovely illustrations and interesting information about Wales, as well as, Dau Mewn Cae / Ruck in the Muck by Ceri Wyn Jones which is a wonderful story about two brothers playing rugby in a field but imagine that they are playing for their country at the Millennium Stadium. A great story to read alongside the Six Nations too!”
And lastly, Susannah Hill, one of our Library Service Managers, said: “I love books and stories and get really excited seeing all the new books arriving in our libraries. I love sharing stories with other people too! My recommendations for World Book Day are Penguin by Polly Dunbar, George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer and Blood Red Snow White by Marcus Sedgewick.
Let us know what you’re reading this World Book Day and what you love about your library! Happy Reading Everybody!
