    Children (and more than a few grown-ups!) who enjoyed the film will be excited to relive it time and time again in the Parragon retelling, while the poster book has not only 17 manga-style posters to stick up around the home, but also a giant poster and 30 amazing stickers of the beloved characters.

    You've seen the hit film starring Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario; now's the time to read up on James Dashner's Maze Runner series - you won't believe what happens next!

    The film adaptation was one of 2014's biggest films but we believe the novels are even better! This three-book collection is great for anyone who was left on the edge of their seat by the film's cliffhanger ending and needs to know what happens next...

    Starting with The Maze Runner and all Thomas can remember is his name. When the lift cranks open, he finds he's not alone and has landed up at the Glade - an encampment at the centre of a terrible maze. Surrounding him is an army of boys known as the Gladers... But when a girl arrives with a message, everyone will have to work together to escape the maze - or risk dying!

    The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure continue the story with even more shocks, thrills and spills... A combination of The Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies and Patrick Ness' Chaos Walking trilogy, these are young adult novels of the highest calibre.

    Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird won a Pulitzer Prize after its publication in 1960 and is hugely influential in its exposure of racial prejudice.

    Set in the American Deep South, the story is seen through the eyes of six-year-old Scout, whose lawyer father Atticus Finch defends a young black man wrongly accused of raping a white woman.

    As Scout's family deals with the hostility and prejudice as a result of the case, there's a dawning realisation for Scout of all the inequality and injustice in her world.

    Powerful and moving, this Great American Novel is a must-have addition to every reader's bookshelf and with the publication of follow-up Go Set a Watchman confirmed for this July, now is the perfect time to rediscover the hugely important book.
