2017 has provided a cornucopia of book delights for us all at Inkpots. Some books have also been sent to us by publishers, for review ahead of publication date. And that is exciting beyond words!

So, if you are looking for Christmas present ideas, or want to expand a reading list for 2018, here are the best books as recommended by children and young people who come to Inkpots, some parents, and Gill (Chief Inkpot).
