Description: Winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2020. The second sensational middle-grade standalone that follows an epic voyage from England to France in the aftermath of WW1, from the bestselling author of The Children of Castle Rock. In the aftermath of World War One, everyone is trying to rebuild their lives. If Ben is to avoid being sent back to the orphanage, he needs to find his brother Sam, wounded in action and is now missing. Lotti's horrible aunt and uncle want to send her away to boarding-school (when she has just so successfully managed to get expelled from her last one!) And Clara, their young teacher, is waiting for news of her missing fiance. Just as they think they've found their feet in the new order, disaster strikes, and Lotti and Ben must get away. And so they hatch a plan - to cross the Channel on Ben's narrowboat and find Sam. And there's something in France that Lotti is looking for, too. Buffeted by storms, chased by the police, Lotti, Ben, Clara and a growing number of dogs set out on an epic journey, on the search for lost loved ones and a place to call home.

Author: Lost Without a Book

Rating: 5

Review: Winner of the Costa Prize for best children's book this year, Voyage of the Sparrowhawk is a historical fiction novel that really pulls at the heartstrings. Set just after WWI, both Ben and Lottie are orphans who have difficult lives. Ben lives on a narrowboat with Nathan, the man who adopted him while Lottie lives with a cruel Aunt and Uncle who became her guardians after the death of her parents. When Nathan is killed in the war and Ben's brother Sam is listed as missing, the duo set off (along with some fantastic canine companions) to voyage to France on a narrowboat to try to find him. They meet so many interesting adult characters along the way who both help and hinder them in their travels. The adventure within the story was so believable and the characters so loveable - you really did want everything to turn out OK. It dealt with some difficult issues (war, injury, cruelty) really sensitively and opened up lots of potential areas for discussion and further exploration. A worthy winner - a highly recommended read!

Review: We loved the Children of Castle Rock which had a very distinctive voice. This however, felt far more mundane and middle of the road. The adventure seemed a bit bland compared with the hype. Getting across a storm in the channel seemed to take just a couple of pages and lacked little description. The adventure did not plumb any extreme highs or lows and all seemed a little easy to come by. Could have done with a little more jeopardy. Was perfectly ok, but far from a classic.

    Description: The first book of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin is a tale of wizards, dragons and terrifying shadows. The island of Gont is a land famous for wizards. Of these, some say the greatest - and surely the greatest voyager - is the man called Sparrowhawk. As a reckless, awkward boy, he discovered the great power that was in him - with terrifying consequences. Tempted by pride to try spells beyond his means, Sparrowhawk lets loose an evil shadow-beast in his land. Only he can destroy it, and the quest leads him to the farthest corner of Earthsea.

    Description: From the Costa Award winning author of Voyage of the Sparrowhawk comes an epic adventure with a call to arms: we must fight to save the most treasured things on our planet. Ravenwood. A place where things happen. On the top of the hill, overlooking the sea, that's where you'll find a magical place. To Bea and Raffy, Ravenwood is home. In its own way, the house rescued them, even if it did have a fallen-down tree taking up most of the kitchen. So the idea that it could be sold. Demolished even. Well, that's unthinkable. Then again, it's not like the children get a choice. But the truth is, we can all make our own choices, especially if we care enough. A beautiful, soulful, exciting story about holding onto what's precious, and guarding the extraordinary nature that surrounds us.
