Bookarest Buchworms
Ilfov County,
Group status: We were sleeping, but the alarm's just gone off
We are brave, beautiful, book-loving bakers, trapped in a strange fantasy land we call 'Bookarest'. Our only hope of escape is to read as many of the Carnegie shortlisted titles as possible before we are burned as witches...

The Ghost in the Machine

Is it OK to stop reading a book before you get to the end?

Title: His Dark Materials: Book 1 Northern Lights
Author: Philip Pullman
Winning Year: 1995

Mr Appleton's all time favourite children's book isn't even really a children's book. It's dark and vivid and gloriously complex. And the film is nowhere near as good, so don't watch it.
