Synopsis

Maya's Secret by Holly Webb

The first of four fabulous books for 9+ readers about friendship in an environmentally challenged world. Researching her school project on fair-trade has been a real eye-opener for Maya. She loves clothes and is appalled to find that her favourite sparkly t-shirts are made by poor children in other countries, who lead lives very different from her own, privileged one. She knows she must do something about it, but how can she make a difference without revealing her pop star secret to the world?

About the Author

Holly Webb

Holly Webb was born and grew up in south-east London, but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. As a child, she had two dogs, a cat, and at one point, nine gerbils (an accident). At about ten, Holly fell in love with stories from Ancient Greek myths, which led to studying Latin and Greek, and eventually to reading Classics at university. She worked for five years as a children's fiction editor, before deciding that writing was more fun, and easier to do from a sofa. She started writing several years ago while working as a children’s books editor. She has written over ninety books including the Animal Stories, My Naughty Little Puppy and Maisie Hitchins series for Stripes Publishing. Holly has also written In The Clever Little Kitten for World Book Day and a sequel to The Secret Garden. Holly Webb lives in Berkshire with her husband, children and three cats.

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
