A&U likes to finish the school year with a bang…and 2017 is no exception. Adventure and fantasy abounds in Jaclyn Moriarty’s remarkable The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone (for Years 4-7), as well as Garth Nix and Sean Williams’ Have Sword, Will Travel (Year 3-6). And if you are looking for stimulating, exquisite material for visual literacy studies you can’t go past this month’s Swan Lake by Anne Spudvilas (Years 4-10). A reimagining of the classic tale of passion, betrayal and heartbreak, this picture book for older readers is set in the dramatic riverscape of the Murray-Darling. Finally, if you are looking for new strategies for developing a positive environment in your classroom then here’s the book for you.
