With fall approaching and the nights drawing in, it’s time to prepare kids’ early bedtime story books and means of entertainment for rainy days. Thankfully, three of children’s all-time favourite authors are about to publish their latest literary offerings, the ones you shouldn’t miss.

Ada Twist, Scientist

Author: Andrea Beaty

Ages: 5-7 years

Release date: September 6, 2016

As part of her book series that aims to encourage children’s high aspirations, Beaty’s next picture-book contribution — illustrated by David Roberts and inspired by Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie — follows the title character as she tries to understand the world using science as her guide.

Previous instalments, Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect, were New York Times bestsellers.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down

Author: Jeff Kinney

Ages: 8-12 years

Release date: November 1, 2016

Voted by Time Magazine in 2009 as one of the most influential people in the world, Jeff Kinney is about to release his eleventh book in the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series.

To date, eight of the books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid have reached number 1 on USA Today’s best-selling books list, including last year’s Old School.

Read: 5 books for students starting college

In the upcoming Double Down, Kinney’s protagonist Greg Heffley discovers an old video camera and imagines himself an amateur movie director.

As with the previous books in the series, Double Down is presented in the form of a journal, complete with ‘Greg’s’ hand-written notes and drawings.

Splat The Cat For President

Author: Rob Scotton

Ages: 4-8 years

Release date: 7 December, 2016

Another New York Times bestselling author-artist, Rob Scotton is about to release his latest addition to the popular Splat the Cat children’s book series.

Scotton’s follow-up character to the highly successful Russell the Sheep, Splat finds himself nominated for class president. With the US presidential election heating up, there just might be another candidate to consider.
