This is no ordinary train journey. But then Titus is no ordinary kid. Who else could take on galloping bandits, a rampaging dinosaur, perilous rapids, and rumbling boulders? Hold on to your hats and get ready for ... big imagination, big adventure! Readers will be swept along by these acts of derring-do and will be left wondering whether they really did happen or whether they're all part of the wild parallel universe that is Titus's imagination. Oh, and he manages to step off the train to meet his uncle as coolly as you please. A great fantasy adventure. To celebrate the paperback publication of When Titus Took The Train, author and illustrator Anne Cottringer and Sarah McIntyre - more commonly known as 'Team Titus' - met up to create a simply fabulous trailer! With the winning combination of Anne's talents as a film director, and Sarah's artistic flair, this trailer (see below) provides the perfect teaser to Titus's adventure - so hold onto your seats and get ready for the ride... You can download lots of interesting stuff too from the illustrator's own website too including a special downloadable board game and some top tips for making your own travel adventure.

Flower Power has always moved around. Why should this new town, new school, new flat be any different from all the others? But she meets Cat - who shares her interest in tigers, and another friend shares her passion for old jazz classics. Perhaps her hippy parents near-neglect won't matter, with these new people around her. But Cat can become very distant, particularly over boy friends, and as the school year progresses the relationships evolve and change. Flower finds that the only way that she can deal with it all is to sing her songs, and her old favourites - but will she ever find the courage to sing with such strength to a roomful of people?
