Our July Book of the Month
Moshi Moshi
Banana Yoshimoto

Dean says; Banana Yoshimoto is an absolute joy to read, she merges the surreal of Haruki Murakami with the cute of Hitomi Kawakami but her quirky style stands out all on its own. She might just be your new favourite! Banana is a masterful storyteller with an amazing ability to slow the reader down and immerse you into a dreamy meditation on life, love and saying goodbye, where you walk the fine line between this world and the other, between solitude and loneliness, between dreams and prestidigitations. As a homage to the healing powers of food, family and music and a lively portrait of Shimokitazawa Moshi Moshi is a rare gem of tranquillity which will re-remind you of the and simple pleasure of reading.



Our July Kids Book of the Month
Real Friends
Shannon Hale

Following Shannon's life from kindergarten through fifth grade, Real Friends captures the emotional roller coaster ride of friendship, from navigating the tricky waters of cliques and bullies to her never-ending struggle to stay in 'The Group.' Shannon's honest and heartfelt story reminds us of how hard it was to learn what real friends are - and why finding them is worth the journey.
