Cody Simpson

Cody Simpson: Welcome to Paradise: My Journey by Cody Simpson

The first official all-access look into the life of singing sensation Cody Simpson. Follow Cody as he goes from singing cover songs in his bedroom to opening sold-out concerts for Justin Bieber. With never-before-seen photos, behind-the-scenes interviews, and exclusive information, this book is perfect for pop music fans and for Cody’s Angels.

Book Description

Hey guys,

Can you believe I’ve written my own book?!

I’ve come so far from where I started, a swimming-obsessed kid who’d never left Australia. Now I’ve heard my songs on the radio, seen my face on TV and, most exciting of all, met you—my precious fans—all over the world. I never could have come so far without each and every one of you, my wonderful fans. So this is for you—the full story of my journey here: my inspirations, my secrets, and photos that the world has never seen. It’s your backstage pass to my life.

So what are you waiting for? Come and step inside my world.

Welcome to paradise!


My Review: Do you know just like Justin Bieber, Cody Simpson was discovered on You Tube. And if your child is a fan of Cody they will love to read all about how he started his music career.

One Direction

One Direction: Where We Are Our Band, Our Story: 100% Official by One Direction

Calling all One Direction fans!

This is the only official book from 1D charting their journey over the last year and a half—from the places they’ve visited and fans they’ve met, to their thoughts and feelings, hopes and dreams, highs and lows. It has been a phenomenal year—and this is a phenomenal story.

This Christmas, there will be no other book that true One Direction fans will want!

Our band

Our story

Hi guys, we’re One Direction!

Here, in our official book, you can find out everything that’s gone on over the last eighteen months, the inspirations behind our world tour, all the special people we’ve met, places we’ve been, and moments we’ve shared. From London to Sydney, New York to Tokyo, we’ve played to our incredible fans across the globe, seen our albums hit #1 on the charts, and even made our own movie—wow! Now we can share the ups and downs of it all with you, our fans. This is our story. It’s still hard for us to believe that a few months ago we were just five kids with a dream. It’s been a crazy trip—and this is the true behind-the-scenes story of how we got here. It’s our way of saying thank you for all the love you’ve shown us, from every corner of the world!

Lots of love, 1D xx

My Review: Sorry, am not a fan but for all the fans of One Direction, enjoy! They do tell a great story of their journey so far. Interesting!

  1. I’m exicted for the 1D book since I read the first 1D book, Dare to Dream. I would like to know their point of view on all the things that have happened since the first book.

  9. either the one direction and the cody simpson book would make my daughter very excited. She loves 1D but Cody Simpson holds a special place in our heart ever since the other year when one of my daughters friends was in a car accident and he actually came to PA and visited her in the hospital. Thank you for what you do for making reading important to our youth
