It’s the perfect time of year for scary stories and there’s a wonderfully varied selection in this excellent collection all written by prize-winning children’s authors. For example, Michael Rosen retells a couple of scary folk tales to deliver thrills with a moral, while Jamie Rix describes the misery suffered by a man whose school dinners return to haunt him – a ghastly thought indeed! Bel Mooney’s story shows that a powerful imagination is not always a good thing, while Ruth Ainsworth tells a ghostly story of loss and remembrance. Chosen by an experienced children's bookseller, the stories are just right for either newly confident independent readers or for sharing with an adult. ~ Andrea Reece
It's a pig's life being a princess! Young princess Isabella has it all - but has had enough of all of it. Isabella has had enough of being waited on hand and foot, of having to smile all the time, and of wearing beautiful dresses that she can't climb trees in. So when the king banishes her to the pigsty, his punishment backfires - Isabella's happier there than a pig in mud!
Captain Firebeard may be the terror of the high seas and the ability to make honest seafaring folk shake like jelly but Pirate Girl Molly isn’t afraid of him. This tale of feisty Molly and how she ‘bests’ Captain Firebeard beautifully written by Funke and illustrated by Kerstin Meyer will have lots of little girls heading to sea for adventures of their own.
Toby lives a lonely life in his pyjamas at the seaside hotel where he was abandoned as a baby - until the day he's sent down to the beach to look for Cook's lost laundry. Instead, he finds a pale, thin girl, lying at the water's edge with a long green tail swaying gently in the shallows. Eliza Flot is a stranded mermaid and she needs his help. Toby takes to her like a fish to water, and when he meets her noisy parents he practically becomes part of the family. But Toby's new friendship arouses suspicion back at the hotel. If only Toby and the Flots can come up with a plan to rescue each other.
