Selected by our Editorial Experts

A major new fiction series for young readers 6-8 years. Monstrous stories, monstrous fun and fantastic illustrations on every page.

A Piece of Passion from David Bennett, Publisher, Boxer Books
I was (am) such a fan of 50's and 60's sci-fi - the really crazy - looney stuff. Paul Harrison makes it believable and Tom Knight's stylish, black and white illustrations are spot on for this genre.


Attack of the Giant Hamster by Paul Harrison, Sam Williams

Our story is about Hercules. Not the mighty Greek God, but a pet hamster who is a small, fluffy, lazy litle slob. How strange, then, that this little fellow is able to stomp through town, scare people and crush cars!
