Adventure Stories Fantasy / Magical Featured Books for 11+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers

Adventure, mystery and astonishing family secrets abound in this unmissable middle-grade fantasy

An exhilarating, electrically atmospheric novel about being brave enough to believe in yourself and those you love. Hattie is a fiery, utterly believable, unforgettable protagonist who learns from her mistakes and discovers the best – and most magical – thing she can be is herself. She’s a role model for young readers seeking stability and courage in an unstable world, and the beating heart of a truly thrilling adventure.



The Girl in Wooden Armour Synopsis

Brokewood Valley is a strange and mysterious place. There are old magics under the earth, and dark forces at play. So when Hattie and her brother, Jonathan, arrive to find their Granny missing, they suspect something sinister is going on.

Hattie uncovers these unusual powers in the land and is determined to find out the truth. Where is Granny? How is this connected to her mum's death, seven years go? And who exactly is the girl in wooden armour?
