Time Travelling with a Hamster
I suppose if you'd asked me before, I'd have said a time machine might look something like a submarine? Or perhaps a space rocket. Instead, I'm looking at a laptop and
a tin tub from a garden centre. This is my dad's time machine. And it's about to change the world. Well, mine, at any rate.
Al Chaudhury has a chance to save his dad's life - but to do it he must travel to 1984...
This astonishing and original novel will make you laugh, cry, and wonder - and wish you could turn back time, to start reading it all over again.
What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible
An astonishing and funny novel about a girl who by disappearing - will write herself into your heart for ever...
Twelve-year-old Ethel only meant to cure her spots, not turn herself invisible.
It's terrifying at first and exciting - but the effect fails to wear off and Ethel is thrown into a heart-stopping adventure as she struggles to conceal her invisibility while uncovering the biggest secret of all: who she really is.
The 1,000-year-old Boy
There are lots of stories about people who want to live forever. This is not one of those stories. This is a story about someone who wants to stop...
Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy - except he's a thousand years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.
So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance and a different way to live...
... which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.
The Dog Who Saved the World
When eleven-year-old Georgie befriends an eccentric retired scientist, she becomes the test subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual-reality 3D version of the future.
But then a deadly disease threatens the life of every dog in the country and Georgie’s beloved dog, Mr Mash, gets sick. And that’s only the start of her troubles.
Soon, Georgie and Mr Mash must embark on a desperate quest: to save every dog on earth, and maybe even all of humanity …
… without actually leaving the room.
The Kid Who Came from Space
A small village in the wilds of Northumberland is rocked by the disappearance of twelve-year-old Tammy. Only her twin brother, Ethan, knows she is safe – and the extraordinary truth of where she is. It is a secret he must keep, or risk never seeing her again.
But that doesn’t mean he’s going to give up.
Together with his friend Iggy and the mysterious (and very hairy) Hellyann, Ethan teams up with a spaceship called Philip, and Suzy the trained chicken, for a nail-biting chase to get his sister back… that will take him further than anyone has ever been before.
