Books from Scotland Children's Choice
Children's Choice in the latest newsletter from Books for Scotland is Magnus Fin and the Ocean Quest by Janis MacKay. There has always been something unusual about Magnus Fin, a school misfit. On his 11th birthday Magnus throws a message in a bottle out to sea, wishing for a best friend and to be more brave - and he gets a lot more than he bargained for - you can read the first chapter on the BfS site. Janis won the Kelpies prize for debut novels for this title and a copy will be added to stock just as soon as it's available.
