Hot Book List for Year 5!


Year 5 are delighted to be taking part in this year’s Fantastic Book Awards (FBA)!


170 primary schools are participating in this year's FBA and we hope all the children will enjoy having time to read and discuss the books together and vote for their favourite books.   

There are an incredible selection of stories for children to discover by some amazing authors and illustrators.  We are in Group A. 


We really enjoyed looking at the books today. Someone of them may appear home soon...


Here are the books we have been given to explore...

The Monster Doctor, written and illustrated by John Kelly.

A dragon with indigestion? A blob with a cold? A yeti with a sore foot?

Then book an appointment with the MONSTER DOCTOR. No THING too small, no creature too big! Ozzy is just an ordinary human boy – until he gets a job at the monster doctor's surgery!


The Strangeworlds Travel Agency, by LD Lapinski

At the Strangeworlds Travel Agency, each suitcase transports you to a different world.

When 12-year-old Flick Hudson accidentally ends up in the Strangeworlds Travel Agency, she uncovers a secret: there are hundreds of other worlds just steps away from ours. All you must do to visit them is jump into the right suitcase...


The Beast and the Bethany, written by Jack Meggitt-Phillips and illustrated by Isabelle Follath.

I want you to bring me another meal. And I know exactly what I want to eat...

Ebenezer Tweezer is a youthful 511-year-old. He keeps a beast in the attic of his mansion, who he feeds all manner of things and in return the beast vomits out presents for Ebenezer. But the beast grows ever greedier. It's time for a new meal, a child sized meal…


The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates, written by Jenny Pearson. 

The super funny, heart-warming adventure of three boys, one summer holiday, and a few miracles along the way.

Freddie's journey wasn't meant to involve Big Trev and the onion-eating competition or the loo-exploding pear-and-potato turnovers. But journeys never take you where you think they will. And for Freddie, that fact might just have to be enough...



The Night Bus Hero, written by Onjali Q Raúf.

'The boy's an absolute menace.'

'He's a bully. A lost cause.'


Hector is determined to change his ways when the consequences of his bullying prank on a homeless man are laid bare.  Find themes of bullying and homelessness, while celebrating kindness, friendship and the potential everyone has to change for the good. 


My Life as A Cat, written by Carlie Sorosiak. 

You don't have to be born into a family to call it your own.

Leonard has never had a name. Or a body. Or a best friend. But he is excited to try being a human. Leonard was supposed to become a forest ranger in Yellowstone National Park - but there was a mix-up. And now he's stuck as a stray cat.
