The Ultimate First Book Guide was published just this time last year, and the new Ultimate Book Guide (8-12) just hit the shops this week, and the new Ultimate Teen Book Guide is already with our publishers, which means we're not currently compiling any new volumes; which in turn means that from now this blog is the only place we've got where we can tell people about new books as they appear (published inconveniently between UBG editions), the only place we can go with our enthusiasm for amazing things we've just discovered...
And though we've already been doing this a bit in the past, recommending things we like as we come across them, we're going to be doing it in a more orderly way from now on, by posting an entry on our 'UBG Book of the Week', every Monday, starting this week (first post, Monday 16th). Each entry will recommend something that's just come out or is about to appear. Some entries will be by us, some will be by our contributors, by children or teenagers we know, and other guests too... If you've just discovered something new and amazing, let us know and we might be able to give you a free Monday slot to tell people about it!
And check back on Monday, of course, for the first UBG entry online!
