Magrudy’s Top Four Books

by Eddie Rayner

A heartwarming quote says, “Blessed are the children of the bookworm for they shall inherit the books.” Without further ado parents, here are the top three books on the Magrudy’s bestseller list for children, and we’ve thrown one in for you too.

Children (ages 4-10)

‘Evie and the Animals’ by Matt Haig AED 69
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to talk to animals? Ten-year-old Evie not only talks to them, but also hears their thoughts. When the pets on her street start mysteriously disappearing, it is up to Evie to find them, even if it means standing up against the villain with a talent of their own.

‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen
AED 44
We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. Will you come too? Follow and join in the family’s excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river, and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!

Children (ages 4-10)


‘The World’s Worst Teachers’ by David Walliams
AED 82
This really is Walliams at his most indulgently gross and silly, with stunning illustrations that capture the energy and chaos of Dr Dread, a teacher who is half man, half monster, Miss Seethe, who’s on a detention rampage, and Mr Phobe, who fears children.

‘Surrounded by Idiots’ by Thomas Erikson
AED 55
Do you ever think you’re the only one making any sense? Or tried to reason with your partner with disastrous results? Do long, rambling answers drive you crazy? Or does your colleague’s abrasive manner get your back up? You are not alone. After a disastrous meeting with a highly successful entrepreneur, who was genuinely convinced he was ‘surrounded by idiots’, communication expert and bestselling author, Thomas Erikson dedicated himself to understanding how people function and why we often struggle to connect with certain types of people.
