Our July Book of the Month
Boy Swallows Universe
by Trent Dalton

Dean says: Every now and then when you least expect it a book comes along and absolutely blows your mind. This is one of those rare books.
The best book I have read all year; in short summary - WOW!
 
Emily says: This book is my new favourite Australian fiction novel and a strong contender for best book of 2018. Trent Dalton writes with incredible grace and his story keeps raising stakes I really didn't think could go any higher. Trent Dalton has blown it out of the park with amazing plot, gorgeous characters and stunning prose. All the positive adjectives in the world cannot encapsulate how much I enjoyed myself while reading this book. Very Australian, very real, very brilliant.
 
John says: Believe the hype! Utterly fabulous. A beautifully crafted, funny and true blue coming-of-age story about family and brotherhood and love. Has a bit of everything: story-telling chutzpah mixed with charm, heart-break, deliverance and a touch of magic. Dalton is the new Steve Toltz: if you admired A Fraction of the Whole, you'll love this! The feel-good novel of the year.
 
Lillian: Rarely do you come across a book that is simultaneously heart-wrenching and heart-warming, but this is the case with Trent Dalton's superlative new novel. I could not put this book down.
 
Lucy: A touching tale of growing up and what it takes to be a ‘good man'. As Eli Bell grows up in a complicated household surrounded by criminals he discovers his own way through the world around him. Dalton writes about boyhood, family and falling in love in one beautifully complicated novel. 
 

Mixed : A Colourful Story - Arree Chung
 
Our July Kids' Book of the Month
Mixed
 by Arree Chung

The Blues, Reds and Yellows lived in harmony. Reds were the loudest, Yellows the brightest and Blues were the coolest. However when one of the colours proclaims they are the best, discord breaks out and eventually the colours decide to live in different parts of the city. Then one day a Yellow befriends a Blue and they become inseparable, discovering a world of different possibilities and colours.

From the brilliantly talented Arree Chung comes a sweet tale of difference and acceptance. Mixed is a charming and timely story with characterful illustrations and humour.
