No real surprises in the charts this week! The Wimpy Kid has gone right up to the top of the charts, with Jeff Kinney’s latest in the Diary series, Wrecking Ball, racking up almost four thousand sales this week. We also have Heather Morris, with both The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilla’s Journey in the Top 20, and an eagerly-awaited new book from Elizabeth Strout, Olive, Again at no. 18 and no. 6 in Original Fiction.

This week’s featured book is just beautiful: The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy. Here’s some more information:

‘You will not be able to buy a more beautiful book for Christmas for somebody you love’ Chris Evans

A book of hope for uncertain times.

Enter the world of Charlie’s four unlikely friends, discover their story and their most important life lessons.

The conversations of the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse have been shared thousands of times online, recreated in school art classes, hung on hospital walls and turned into tattoos. In Charlie’s first book, you will find his most-loved illustrations and some new ones too.

‘A wonderful work of art and a wonderful window into the human heart’ Richard Curtis

And this week’s charts, starting with the Top 20 and finishing with the Top 10 in each category:
