Michelle Waghorn reporting …
Last year, members of the Library’s Manga Club, and also some Year 8 Literacy pupils, participated in the Stan Lee Excelsior Award, where we read and discussed the five manga & graphic novels on this year’s shortlist.
“The Excelsior Award is the only nationwide book award for graphic novels and manga – where kids aged 11-18 decide the winner by rating each book as they read it!”
Unfortunately, Lockdown prevented us from completing, but I think most of the students will be happy with the winner!
You can find out more about the Excelsior Award here:
“Witch Hat Atelier really engaged me in the characters and their contrasting personalities. I am really considering buying Volume Two.”
“This story is utterly amazing! I read it in one sitting as I couldn’t put it down. The main character is Coco; she is a human who wishes to be a witch. She likes magic because, when she was little, an old witch gave her a pen, ink and a magic picture book. She then realises that spells work when she draws them and casts a forbidden spell …
I would recommend to anyone interested in fantasy and magic.”
Pupils can have access to the Library computers (for homework purposes only) before school from 07:45, BUT this will be on a rotation for each Year Group as follows:
VI Form students will have books delivered to their form.
Please login on the Library online catalogue, https://uk.accessit.online/ths01/#!dashboard to search and reserve books for our new Click & Collect Service.
You can collect your library books after school (14.55 – 15.15) on your allocated day.

WITCH HAT ATELIER
by Kamone Shirahama
“A beautifully-illustrated story about a girl who longs for magic in her life and learns that, on the inside, she already is what she wishes she could be.
In a world where everyone takes wonders like magic spells and dragons for granted, Coco is a girl with a simple dream: she wants to be a witch.
But everybody knows magicians are born, not made, and Coco was not born with the gift for magic.
She’s resigned to her un-magical life, until a travelling magician passes through her village, and Coco learns what everybody ‘knows’ might not be the truth.”
