Winner of the 2010 Blue Peter 'Most Fun with Pictures' Award. Dinkin Dings is afraid of everything - not just scary things, like being stuck in a lift with a hungry jaguar, but pretty much totally everything (apart from the monsters under his bed)! When Dinkin sees his new neighbours, he's certain that the girl next door is in fact a flesh-eating alien space zombie! But no one believes him. Can Dinkin, and his friends, The Frightening Things, rid the world of the evil zombies before the whole planet is turned into mindless flesh-eating slaves...?
This is the quirky, original and deliciously dark sequel to the hilarious The Name of This Book is Secret. Bursting with inventive characters and laugh-out-loud moments, readers will be instantly hooked once more by the stylish storytelling of Pseudonymous Bosch. A message from the author: 'I have a confession to make. Against my better judgment, I have written a second book - a secret sequel, if you will, to The Name of this Book is Secret. I know I swore I wouldn't do it. The dangers are all too obvious. But what can I say? I'm just not very good at keeping secrets.'

There are 10 titles culminating in this final Princess Diaries, Ten out of Ten, which features Princess Mia, aged 18.

As ever, stopping him involves some wild action including a trip in a hot air-balloon and some daring adventures on the high seas. Click here to view the other Mr Gum titles by Andy Stanton.

Quirky, original and hugely entertaining, this is a debut novel of fantastical proportions. The first in a secretive series, The Name of this Book is SECRET is accompanied by a website, part of which is in code so important information is only given to the brave (or foolhardy). It provides even more insight into the twisted villains and their lair. But shhh ... maybe I have said too much, tell no-one what I have told you and whatever you do, don’t visit: www.thenameofthisbookissecret.co.uk. The sequel to this novel is also now published. To view it click here. A piece of passion from the Editor:The Name of This Book is Secret is a wildly original romp of an adventure, filled with colourful characters, but it’s Pseudonymous Bosch’s wickedly witty and hugely entertaining narrative voice that really kept me giggling away with every read.

In this special edition there's a page of disgustingly smelly scratch-and-sniff stickers to decorate Mr Twit's beard included too! Yuck!. Mr and Mrs Twit are possibly the vilest of all Roald Dahl’s creations. They are ugly on the inside, as is evident from the cruel tricks they play on each other and the way they treat the Muggle-Wump monkeys, and utterly disgusting on the outside! The very thought of Mrs Twit’s cooking is enough to make grown-ups turn green, and as for Mr Twit’s beard … It’s hard to think of a book that is better suited to the addition of scratch and sniff stickers than this viscerally effective tale! It should probably come with a warning for adults but children will relish using the very stinky stickers to make Mr Twit’s beard even more disgusting! ~ Andrea Reece
With Rudolph on strike Rover comes to the rescue of Father Christmas but how can he possibly deliver all the presents with so little time left. You’ll laugh your socks off with Doyle’s brilliant storyline and one-liners to boot. This sequel to The Giggler Treatment also stands alone as a fantasmogorical read for everyone from 6 upwards.
A breath of fresh air in teen girls’ fiction and one of the funniest things we’ve read in the Lovereading office this year. Tipped to be the Adrian Mole for today’s teenage girls, My So-Called Life charts the side-splitting consequences of one girl’s quest to inject more drama into her tragically normal life. It captures brilliantly in laugh-out-loud diary style the angst of any teenager. A definite rival for bestselling teen novelists Louise Rennison and Sue Limb. Finally, don’t panic when you’ve finished this one for Rachel’s story will continue in the sequel The Life Of Riley. Click here to find out more about Rachel Riley herself in her very own website!
The eighth title in this fantastic Princess Diaries series. If you’re looking for books to get a reticent reader into the reading experience then the Princess Diaries series is a great way to do that. This is number eight but there is no need to have read the other seven to enjoy this one, which by the way is every bit as good as the earlier ones. The writing style is straightforward and the characters are a joy to meet. Other titles in the fabulous Princess Diaries series include Seventh Heaven and the final installment Ten Out of Ten.
