There were pleased nods and mini happy dances in the Omnibus offices when we heard Figgy in the World is on the Readings Children's Book Prize shortlist this year. In very good company, I might add. We've said it before and we'll keep shouting it from the rooftops, this is a delightful book by a talented young author. Well done, Tamsin!

The Memory Shed by Sally Morgan is another in Omnibus Books' new series of chapter books that are perfect for developing reader confidence and also based on Indigenous characters. Illustrated with humour and child appeal by the wonderful Craig Smith, this is a family story with an unexpected twist.
Out this month from very popular children's author Phil Cummings is Ride, Ricardo, Ride, a haunting and evocative tale of war-torn Europe that shows the endurance of the human spirit. Illustrated by Shane Devries, an artist of rare talent.
