With summer in the northern hemisphere fast approaching, and infections under control in many places, including here in the UK, lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease. What joy to be able to spend time together again! Some of us are making plans to go away on holiday, even if the choice of destination is somewhat limited.
We’re really proud of our new books this year and we think any – or all! – of them would make great summer reading. Whether you’re packing your suitcase, or just sitting outside in the sun, here’s some information to help you choose the right summer read for you:
