An exciting new adventure series with a green theme as Ben sets out to find who has stolen the strawberries. No one believes him when he says the thief is a monkey, so Ben bravely decides to find out exactly what’s going on. But there is too much danger for him to manage alone. Ben needs all the help he can get from his half sister and step brother in this charming story of a family with a difference. Plenty of humour and pace that are the hallmarks of Josh Lacey’s writing (Grk series and Bearkeeper) make this an absolute must read. You can see the second title in the Misfitz series, due this september, by clicking here. An extract for that title will follow sometime this summer.


Misfitz Mystery: The One That Got Away by Josh Lacey

Ben's family is complicated. And being stuck in a remote cottage with his irritating elder sister, his silly half-sister and his weird step-brother drives him crazy - until a night-time intruder leads the children to make a shocking and dangerous discovery in the shadowy woods that they are strictly forbidden to explore.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
