New Bright Books for Autumn 2019

last updated 12 July 2019


Whilst enjoying these balmy summer months, we can’t help but get excited about the whole host of new books from our talented authors and artists publishing this autumn.

There are some brand new instalments of popular series such as Benji Davies’ Bizzy Bear, and James Lancett’s Lightning Girl books, dazzling new titles from bestsellers David Litchfield and Jarvis, plus debut author illustrated picture books from Alex G Griffiths and Chris Chatterton.

This bumper collection of new titles feature everything from the supernatural to the inspirational, including a bug enthusiast, some cheeky pumpkins, a whimsical pirate voyage, and quite frankly, lots of llamas!
