So You Think You've Got it Bad? A Kid's Life in the Aztec Age by Chae Strathie

So You Think You've Got it Bad? A Kid's Life in the Aztec Age by Chae Strathie

A kid’s life in the Aztec Age might sound like fun, what with all that brilliant sunny weather and exciting festivals, but actually life for kids could be pretty hard. In this hilarious book, written by award-winning author Chae Strathie, children will learn just how tough life really was, from being jabbed by cactus spikes to snacking on maggots...and even wearing jaguar skins! Probably the first book about the Aztec Age that involves wedgies and skateboards, this is a must read for kids with a passion for horrible history! Brought to life with rich, humorous illustrations by super-talented Marisa Morea.

The Exploding Life of Scarlett Fife by Maz Evans

The Exploding Life of Scarlett Fife by Maz Evans

Scarlett Fife has BIG FEELINGS. And when she has BIG FEELINGS, they explode out of her like an over-squeezed stress ball. Scarlett's in big trouble after a BIG FEELINGS episode leads to a runaway hamster getting into the vicar's trousers at her aunty's engagement party. If she loses her temper ONE MORE TIME, she's going to miss out on her trip to Mega Awesome Sicky Fun World, the best theme park on the planet. But feelings are like slime in a party bag. No matter how much someone tells you to keep it in, it'll always find its way out. And very soon, Scarlett notices that every time she pushes her feelings down, something explodes. Like...really, properly explodes. It might be her teacher's slimy green smoothie. A huge pot of purple paint. Or a massive pile of elephant poo at the zoo. And let's hope Scarlett doesn't get mad at Aunty's wedding - that wedding cake is HUGE...
