    Starring Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Chris Tucker, and featuring an Oscar-winning performance from The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, David O. Russell's (director of The Fighter, Three Kings and American Hustle) adaptation of The Silver Linings Playbook< has garnered many a positive review from critics. A delightful debut novel from the author of The Good Luck of Right Now, Matthew Quick, the book tells the story of Pat, a man with bipolar disorder who is trying to get his life back on track after a stint in a psychiatric hospital.

    Holly and Anna want nothing more than to go on the intergalactic holiday of a lifetime, but they live in the seaside town of Doverport - a place where nothing fun ever happens. They'll never get the money to afford this trip. However, when they see a chance to work as babysitters for the royal family, they think it will be easy to earn the money they need.

    When they get to the palace, they realise there are six princes for them to look after and that's five more than they were expecting. The friends' adventures in babysitting find them repelling an invasion; meeting the glamorous Mademoiselle Malypense (who will pay them to prepare for the royal wedding of Princess Violette of Francia); and becoming baking assistants to King Steve - their friend Pepino's dad.

    Fresh and funny, we'd recommend these award-shortlisted books from Clementine Beauvais to fans of Pamela Butchart and Malory Towers. Becka Moor's funny and vibrant illustrations just add to the enjoyment.
