Welcome to your Badger Learning KS3 & KS4 catalogue With over 30 years’ experience working within education, our amassed knowledge and expertise ensure we deliver quality resources designed to inspire and encourage reading. Inside, you will find a fantastic range of specialist titles for reluctant and struggling readers alongside our popular themed collections for your library.

MEET SOME OF THE TEAM… “I’ve been with Badger for over 10 years and during that time we have published hundreds of titles. I have had a chance to read over the CLPE Reflecting Realities Report and it’s a tough read. Only 1% of the children’s books published in the UK in 2017 had a BAME main character. I thought this industry had changed over the last few years, but I was wrong. I have been to Danny Pearson so many seminars, talks and workshops about Publisher/ Senior Editor diversity in publishing and it seems the larger publishers still have a way to go. We at Badger Publishing are proud that our titles are diverse and contain characters our readers can relate to. Take a look inside our catalogue and find the perfect books for you and your students.”

“Happy 2019! After the popularity of our 2018 book collections, I thought it was essential that we continue to diversify our offering of books to ensure that every type of reader is catered for. This year we have chosen to collate a selection of Manga titles due to their huge rise in popularity, thanks to various Netflix and Amazon Prime anime series. These are Sarah Capon available to buy in a pick ’n’ mix style so you Library Collections Specialist can buy as many or as few as you would like. We have also extended our offering of the latest and best books for secondary schools, broken down into year groups to save librarians a lot of time and effort, whilst also ensuring that no inappropriate content gets into the hands of younger students.”

HARRY POTTER FANS MUST READ Have you ever experienced a bigger book hangover than when you finished the Harry Potter series? “No, me neither!” I still vividly remember queuing at midnight for the release of Deathly Hallows at 17 years of age and devouring it within 48 hours. 10 years on and I still squirm in delight when I read a book that is reminiscent of my favourite childhood series. Whether it’s the intricate world building, similar lovable characters or the magnificent magic, the books in this collection are perfect next reads and will engross any Potterhead.

FEMINIST REVOLUTION

It is fantastic that last year we celebrated the 100-year anniversary of some women gaining the right to vote but the battle for equality is still far from over. British society has come some way over the past year, with a push in promoting women in STEM, as well as F1’s retirement of grid girls.

H FREE FEMINIST ROLE MODEL PRIDE POSTER SET WORTH £30 INCLUDED!

owever, with current campaigns such as #metoo and #ourtimenow; statistics showing that the gender pay gap is still an issue; and the fact that women are five times more likely to be sexually assaulted than men*, it is blindingly obvious that the equality we seek is still a long way off. This means it is more important than ever that there are novels available to the next generation which overtly discuss issues of equality. These timely and groundbreaking reads have been selected for their empowering messages, including how to stand up to everyday sexism, the question of consent, the issues of victim blaming, and how to break down the

typical female gender stereotype. They all feature powerful and inspirational female protagonists. Although some do make for difficult reading, it is extremely important that these books are included in secondary school libraries. They open up discussion of everyday, real-life problems that need to be examined rather than ignored. If you are concerned about any of the content of these books, please request our free content guidance which gives more detail about each title and the issues confronted. Overall, these books are thoughtprovoking, powerful and essential. They hold important messages to inform discussions that are extremely relevant to teenagers and their lives today.

MANGA

NEW

I am of the opinion that whatever gets teens reading is a good book and manga is certainly grabbing the attention of students that aren’t reading traditional novels. Its huge rise in popularity, mainly due to anime series available on streaming services, means that there is now a great need for these types of books in school libraries. However, the range is huge and certainly a minefield, so I have read nearly a hundred titles page-for-page to bring you the best and brightest manga available today, all in a pick’n’mix style to allow your students to select their favourites.

Just Bite

by Tommy Donbavand “The front cover of this book was very interesting and scary with the blood dripping from her lips. I thought the book sounded amazing from the blurb as the end sentence is very chilling. The book itself was great and I am pleased I chose this to read. There was nothing I disliked about it or would change.” Cherilanne, Year 9

DIVERSITY As mentioned on page 3 — we have read over the CLPE Reflecting Realities Report and it’s a tough read.

Filled with mythical beasts, treacherous terrain and a castaway captain who may have eaten one too many coconuts — who will manage to escape and who will be marooned forever? Monster Island is a new adventure series for reluctant and struggling readers aged 12+ with a much lower reading age of 6–7. All six titles have been written by Tim Collins, an expert in writing exciting stories for struggling readers, and this series is no exception. All the swashbuckling action is skilfully contained within a mere 300–500 words per book and is spread amongst amazing and imaginative illustrations; a winning combination to make reading an inviting experience rather than a daunting one. These engaging stories will also make brilliant quick reads for more able readers. Catch Up© Level 6 6-7

NEW

Two Sides is our new series for teenagers which has a different format to anything we have published before. Each of the six titles contains two parallel narratives, featuring two differing perspectives on the same situation. Following a linear timeline, these stories read almost as diary entries, and the voice alternates each chapter, enabling the reader to keep up with events whilst gaining a multi-dimensional insight at the same time. These thought-provoking titles cover serious themes faced by many young people in today’s world — sexual identity, domestic abuse, racism and being a young carer. One perspective is written from the affected teenager’s point of view, and the other, a friend, parent or authoritive figure who has made an assumption about the situation coloured by prejudice or ignorance. Penned by experienced authors, each book has been skilfully written along a carefully planned timeline to ensure the story doesn’t jump back and forth to keep the text accessible for struggling readers. With around 4000 words and a reading age of 8–9, these six titles will appeal to struggling readers aged 13+. They would also make perfect quick reads for more able readers.

8-9

This brilliant series has stories that will grab the interest of your students whilst cautioning them not to assume they always know what someone else is going through. The captivating narratives will take readers on a rollercoaster of emotions and open their minds to the very different situations faced by each of us as individuals.

13+

Appearances can be deceiving. In a judgemental world, can your students see Two Sides?
