Tom Gates 20: Happy to Help (eventually)* by Liz Pichon

Q: Who wants their FIVE STAR funny story included in Oakfield School’s story book? A: EVERYONE! But what will Tom write about?

Inspiration strikes when he looks at his excellent collection of ODD OBJECTS and remembers the funny stories behind each one. Starting with Great Great Aunt Aggie’s fake bird hat, the weird stone with a hole and his very special doodle pen. Marcus wants to write about Tom (which is annoying), Amy’s got a funny poem and Norman’s story is all about… cheese. But Mr Fullerman can only choose the FIVE STAR STORIES – will Tom get his work in on time? And will Granddad read Tom’s story and find out what REALLY happened to Aunt Aggie’s hat? (Spoiler alert – probably)

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes Movie Tie-in by Suzanne Collins

The tie-in edition to the star-studded blockbuster movie. *

Ambition will fuel him. Competition will drive him. But power has its price. It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmanoeuvre his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute. The odds are against him. He’s been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low.

Their fates are now completely intertwined – every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favour or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute… and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.
