A Note from the Editor...

Ruth - Editor

Welcome to November & December Booktime! 


In this festive edition we have plenty of new books to recommend for Christmas. The Tree That’s Meant To Be is a brilliant new picture book by Yuval Zommer all about a lonely tree who is left behind in the forest at Christmas, but who finds solace in the love of the animals around it. We interview Abi Elphistone about her new picture book The Snow Dragon which shows how Christmas can be a magical time, no matter what your circumstances. North Child by Edith Pittou is a wintry children’s novel inspired by a Norwegian fairy tale, and Nevertell by Katharine Orton is an adventure novel set in the cold of Siberia. As well as this, we take a look at the big books of this autumn destined to make their way under the trees of present openers throughout the country this year!

We also feature two fantastic cookbooks. Vegan(ish) by Jack Monroe shows that you don’t have to be rich to cook vegan food that’s both delicious and easy to prepare. And Dishoom by Shamil Thakrar, Kavi Thakrar and Naved Nasir is a beautiful new cookbook from the Dishoom restaurants which brings to life the comfort food of old Bombay. Michael Rosen tells us more about his new book on the importance of play for both children and adults, and we take a look at terrifying new thriller from S.K. Tremayne. Our bookclub choice this time is Elizabeth Strout’s follow-up to her Pulitzer Prize winning novel Olive Kitteridge, and we interview YA author Maggie Stiefvater about her new book Call Down The Hawk. There’s also a fascinating look at the history of puzzles, an exploration of what makes thriller-seekers tick, and the latest novel by Sally Gardner, about a girl in the 1870s who is forced to play a dangerous supernatural game.
