Katherine Rundell: Cosmic

Katherine Rundell, the award-winning author of RooftoppersThe Wolf Wilder and The Girl Savage, chooses our Book of the Month for June. Her latest book, The Explorer, won the 2017 Costa Children’s Book Award. 

I have read Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce at least four or five times, and I still laugh out loud every time. It’s about a group of children who go into space – and it’s also fathers and their children, and about love, and adventure, and occasionally doing things that were in no way part of the plan. It’s a real joy to read.


Thanks to Katherine Rundell for her recommendation!
