Introducing Wonder: The Julian Chapter

There are two sides in every story. In WONDER, readers fell in love with Auggie. They felt for him as he attended a real school for the first time and dealt with being bullied for his differences.

THE JULIAN CHAPTER is the other side of the story, one that readers of WONDER by RJ Palacio won’t want to miss.

Personal History and the Act of Writing

by Tony Mitton 

The story. The lyric poem. Narrative. Intricate thought process verbalised. They are spheres, bubbles, alternative spaces, places to be alternative to the world of everyday. Escape. Even if the scenario is real. At the most extreme, in make-believe, there is escape into a pretend world. And the psychologists will tell us that that pretend world is a way (like Jung’s dreams) of processing, of dealing with, the menaces and challenges of the real world (see Bruno Bettellheim’s The Uses of Enchantment for an early version of this notion).

New from Bear Grylls

Imagine a scaly monster that grabs you with its claws, drags you to the bottom of a river, and then tears you to bits by spinning you around underwater.

Can You Rhyme Yourself Happily Never After?

Win £100 of Books!To celebrate National Poetry Day and the publication of the hilarious Happily Never After: Modern Cautionary Tales by Mitchell Symons we are offering one lucky winner the chance to bag themselves £100 worth of books!

Happily Never After is full of fantastic rhymes that’ll have your sides splitting in no time. It contains some of the foulest kids you’ll ever come across who all get the comeuppance in the end. Like Tiffany: who couldn’t put down her mobile phone and died a horrible death; Bill: whose ability to fart ended in tears and Chloe: whose determination to have the most Facebook friends meant she lost her real ones!

To enter this amazing competition all you have to do is video yourself reading one of the poems from Happily Never After, and have a parent or guardian either upload it to YouTube and send us a link or email the whole thing to us at rhcpcompetitions@randomhouse.co.uk.

Closing date for the competition will be on the 31st October, please see full Terms and Conditions for further information on entering the competition.

If you need some inspiration, here is the author himself reading his favourite rhyme and two free extracts from the book to get you started!

Why Nina is Visiting China by Madhvi Ramani

Books as a way of travelling

One of the reasons I love reading is that books transport me to other worlds, and introduce me to new people and places. In my children’s series, my character Nina can travel to anywhere in the world in her magical shed. And the great thing is that we all get to journey along with her!
