Read this excellent and exciting dystopian adventure before the film comes out in March 2014.
If you liked Hunger Games, you'll love this.
Next in the series is Insurgent, then Allegiant.
Never judge a book by it's movie - read this first!
Do you have a favorite book that you’re so comfortable with and understand so well that it almost feels like a good friend?
Have a look at the series of Israeli bookstore ads that demonstrate how that might look.
Which book character would you like to keep you company? I would like to have Manchee from 'The Knife of Never Letting go' living with me.
This interactive infographic from Number Sleuth is a great way to look at the world - all of it, big and small. Who said physics isn't fun!

"Food trucks inspire mobile bookstore". Article from the Detroit News - click on the picture. I think we need a book case built in to the school van for trips out!
Thanks Bridget Schaumann for the link.
Mocha Dick by David Gilford
How about listening to Moby Dick by Herman Melville.
The Moby Dick Big Read is " an online version of Melville's magisterial tome: each of its 135 chapters read out aloud, by a mixture of the celebrated and the unknown, to be broadcast online in a sequence of 135 downloads, publicly and freely accessable."
Chapters read by Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberpatch and our very own Witi Ihimaera Ihimaera.
Movie Seventh Son is loosely based on Joseph Delany's book The Spook's Apprentice (Book 1 in The Wardstone Chronicles). Plenty of CGI action (if anyone wanted to know what career to work towards I reckon computer graphics must be the way to go), this looks good. But like my favourite badge says - never judge a book by it's movie.
Thanks to Hutt City Libraries and Kristine Saunders.
This is a good list of series that are as good as (if not better for a lot of them) than Hunger Games. Have a look - and see how many you agree with.
