Happy Christmas from the team at KBR

What a strange year it's been in both the book world and the world at large. We hope that books brought you both joy and comfort as you navigated the rollercoaster that was 2022.

We at KBR have loved bringing you a vast range of sensational books for children, from Australia and all over the world. Nothing makes us happier than sharing our finds - from board books to young adult reads, it's a thrill to celebrate the wonder of the children's book world.

Over the next fortnight, posts will be a little less frequent as we take a break, rest, rejuvenate, and spend time with family and friends. January will also be a little quieter but things will pick up as we barrel towards the 2023 school year in late January/early February.

On behalf of the amazing KBR team, headed by the inimitable Dimity Powell and Shaye Wardrop, I'm sending you the warmest bookish wishes for a peaceful, happy and uplifting festive season, whatever you're doing, and wherever you are in the world. 

We look forward to a brand new year focused, as ever, on the joy of books.
