Henry is so sure that yetis exist, that he sets off on an expedition to find one. He has packed everything he needs, including a camera to take photos for evidence. But can he find a yeti? And will anyone believe him when he returns home?

A funny story about believing in yourself (and yetis) from bestselling illustrator who has turned author too, Russell Ayto. Children will love the twist ending…


 Adam Butters lives on planet Earth; he likes eating spaghetti hoops and he’s decided he’s going to be a SUPERHERO.

Everyone loves superheroes, they solve problems and make people happy, and that’s good because Adam’s mum needs cheering up. Also, he’s found out that before he was adopted his real mum called him ACE. So now he’s just got to prove to the world that’s what he is. One mission at a time…

Hilarious, heart-warming and heart-breaking in equal measure, this is a story about the power in all of us to be extraordinary.

You can meet Lara Williamson at this year’s Brentwood Children’s Literary Festival.

inkThis image really doesn’t do the stunning cover justice…it’s shiny!

Every action, every deed, every significant moment is tattooed on your skin for ever. When Leora’s father dies, she is determined to see her father remembered forever. She knows he deserves to have all his tattoos removed and made into a Skin Book to stand as a record of his good life. But when she discovers that his ink has been edited and his book is incomplete, she wonders whether she ever knew him at all.

Alice Broadway‘s debut novel is storytelling at its best: we can’t wait for the next installment of this trilogy.
