Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow Book 1

Morrigan Crow is cursed, destined to die on her eleventh birthday. But, as the clock strikes midnight, she's whisked away by a remarkable man called Jupiter North and taken to the secret city of Nevermoor.

There she's invited to join the Wundrous Society. Mystery, magic and protection are hers - if only she can pass four impossible trials, using an exceptional talent. Which she doesn't have...

Perfect for fans of the Harry Potter series and His Dark Materials, this series takes readers into an extraordinary world, setting hope and imagination alive.

Junkyard Jack and the Horse That Talked

'Can all animals talk?' Jack asked.

'Well, of course they can,' said Boadicea the Shetland Pony. 'We're not idiots, you know.'

Jack is a very small and bendy boy. Other than bending and hiding, his favourite thing to do is to go to Old Mr Mudge's junkyard and ride the horses, Lightning and Boadicea. It's definitely better than going home to his drippy Aunt Violet, smelly Uncle Ted and evil cousin Kelly. But when he (accidentally) runs away, he finds himself on an adventure to free his mum from prison - with the help of a lot of talking animals!

Dog Man 3: A Tale of Two Kitties

Dog Man, the newest hero from the creator of Captain Underpants, is still learning a few tricks of the trade. If only the Chief would throw him a bone every once and a while... Dog Man needs to dry
up the drool, dust away the dander, and roll out of the refuse if he's going to impress the Chief, and he needs to do it fast! Petey the cat is out of the bag, and his criminal curiosity is taking the city by storm. Can the canine crime biter unleash justice on this ruffian in time to save the city, or will Petey get away with the purrfect crime?
