A message from the Publisher, Stephanie Seegmuller at Pushkin Press: Hold on tight, when you get youor hands on the very first volume of the now world famous children's series Oksa Pollock. At least is world famous in 26 world languages - the seris started in France, spread to the rest of the world like wildfire and has now finally arrived in the UK. I hope you love Oksa as much as me. She's an impulsive 13 year old, with a wonderful but complicated family, and a lot on her plate - a new country, a new school and a best friend who might just turn out to be more than that...If that wasn't enough, it also turns out Oksa is the new queen of a parallel world and it is she alone who can save her people. She's got every cool magic trick going. She can fly, move objects with her mind and is surrounded by a whole menagerie of magical creatures straight out of old Russian folklore.

The series is an addictive page-turner and volume 1, The Last Hope, is just the start. I've read all five existing volumes available in French and I'm begging for more. So are the huge fan communities in other countries including Japan, Russia, Germany, Spain etc who keep asking for "the next Oksa".

Synopsis

Oksa Pollock: The Heart of Two Worlds by Anne Plichota, Wolf Cendrine, Tom Sanderson

The magical land of Edefia is dying - and with it, the Earth: floods, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are putting millions of lives in danger. The one hope is Oksa Pollock, a teenage girl who has recently discovered her astounding powers, and her true heritage. Only she can save the world, by returning to her enchanted homeland. She has the loyal Runaways at her side, but she also needs the help of some bitter enemies...As the tension grows between her oldest friend Gus and the brooding Tugdual, Oksa finds she must pay a terrible price to enter the hidden realm. And what will await her on the other side?

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
