Text young adult and children’s books, resources for teachers, and more…

Text Publishing has a great line-up of young adult & children’s literature in 2010, including new books from established authors such as Leon Davidson, Maurice Gee, Richard Newsome and Tim Pegler. Newer to Australian readers are novels from the fantastic US authors Laurie Halse Anderson and Rebecca Stead, winner of the 2010 Newbery Medal. This year also sees the first English-language publication of The Prince of Mist, the first novel for younger readers by the acclaimed author of The Shadow of the Wind, Carlos Ruiz Zafón. A definite highlight on any teenager’s calendar will be the May release of David Levithan and John Green’s energetic collaboration Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Don’t be surprised when your students come to school whistling ‘Tiny Dancer’.

These are only a fraction of the young adult & children’s books we’re publishing in 2010, and as our list continues to grow, so do our teaching resources with up-to-date teaching notes and posters available on our resources page.

If you would like to receive quarterly updates about Text’s young adult & children’s books, email us with the subject line ‘subscribe’ and go in the running to win one of five prize packs featuring forthcoming books and posters for your school.
