We love to celebrate the best in children and young people's literature so each month we'll be choosing a Book of a Month to share with you!  


Our Book of the Month for February is a fantastic debut novel  

The Eye of the North by Sinead O'Hart


The Eye of the North by Sinead O'Hart is a fantastic story that weaves elements of fantasy, magic and mythical creatures into an epic voyage. Publishing on the 8th February, the story will have readers on the edge of their seats as they follow Emmeline's adventures to discover the truth behind the kidnapping of her parents meeting some wonderful, and some very menacing, characters along the way!
