The Booksellers Association has announced The Diddle That Dummed by Kes Gray and Fred Blunt as its Children’s Book of the Month for July and The Rain Heron by Robbie Arnott as its Fiction Book of the Month for July.
From the bestselling author of the Oi Frog! series and the illustrator of the Captain Falsebeard and Knightmare series, The Diddle That Dummed is the story of Flinty Bo Diddle who is writing a tune for his fiddle. All his diddles have lined up nicely, except one in the middle who keeps going DUM! The Diddle That Dummed is published by Hachette Children’s Books and is available in bookshops now.
On the book’s selection author Kes Gray said, “As the story of Coronavirus continues to unfold, the reopening of indie bookshops is a most welcome page turned. I’m thrilled that The Diddle That Dummed will be adding to the smiles in Indie bookshops UK-wide in July!”
Illustrator Frank Blunt commented, “I genuinely can’t wait to browse my local independent bookshop again. The knowledge and passion from the booksellers mean the best new books get to enjoy shelf space. I hope booksellers and families alike will enjoy sharing a laugh with The Diddle That Dummed.”
The Rain Heron follows Ren, a woman hunting and trading to survive alone on the remote frontier of a country devastated by a coup. Her life is changed when she meets a young soldier who arrives in the mountains searching for a legendary creature, a mission which merges myth with reality. The Rain Heron is published by Atlantic Books and is available in bookshops now.
Author Robbie Arnott said, “Independent bookshops mean a tremendous amount to me. I worked in one for nearly seven years (if you ever come to Hobart, put Fullers Bookshop on the top of your itinerary), and I still go there all the time. You can’t beat a recommendation from a bookseller who knows what you like to read. That’s the best thing about independent bookshops—the people you meet who introduce you to new worlds.”
