Some of Natalia's favourite books from across the shop.

A Whole Life

Robert Seethaler, translated by Charlotte Collins

A simple story of one man's life. It is gentle and moving in its contemplation of being and existing in solitude.

A Monster Calls

Patrick Ness, illustrated by Jim Kay

Natalia recommends:

Author Patrick Ness and illustrator Jim Kay won both the Carnegie Medal and the Greenway Medal in 2012. A compelling and sorrowful tale with powerful illustrations.

The Arrival

My all-time favourite book. A moving tale about immigration, displacement and courage, told without any words.
