Top Reads: August 2017

August is a favourite month for bookish people — librarians, booksellers, authors, illustrators, Alphabet Soup, and readers! (Our editor loves the dress-up book parades best.) We hope August has showered you with good books, fun costumes, and amazing book characters … but just in case you still need some booky recommendations, here’s this month’s list from our Top Reads team.*

You’ll find a recommended list from our Top Reads Team on the last day of every month (February to November). If you missed last month’s, don’t forget to check out the July Top Reads.

*All our Top Readers are kids aged 13 and under. No grownups allowed!
