To celebrate these awesome novels we have created the Booktrust challenge. If you want to take part its simple:

3. If you are one of the first 6 to complete the challenge you will be rewarded with 25 credit points and an LL goody bag/ free book!

The fifth and final Booktrust challenge (this year) to grace our shelves, is a book called 'Pax'. This book follows a young boy and his pet fox through a turbulent war infested setting. It explores meeting new people, dealing with loss and ultimately accepting change. Told through both the boy and the fox's perspectives you will be left wanting for more and maybe with a tear in you eye.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own. . . .
