Education News

It’s school holidays and we trust you are relaxing with a good book and enjoying splendid spring weather wherever you are. Can you imagine a better book to be relaxing with than Golden Unicorn: Rise of the Mythix, the first instalment in an amazing new series by Anh Do? With complex world building, aspirational young heroes and terrifying villains, this action-packed series will appeal to fans of Marvel and DC, as well as readers of Anh’s previous books. And don’t miss the useful Teachers’ Tips that will help you and your students get more out of reading the book in the classroom or library.

Other October titles with Teachers’ Tips available are Garth Nix’s wonderful Angel Mage, Leigh Hobbs’ hilarious Mr Chicken All Over Australia, Ursula Dubosarsky and Andrew Joyner’s Ask Hercules Quick and Susannah McFarlane’s ‘tilted’ fairytales in Bold Tales for Brave-hearted Boys.
