Surrender yourself to the new hypnotic spell of the Demon Headmaster, with new kids, a new school, and a new thrilling scheme for world domination. Fast paced and action packed adventure, written by the award-winning Gillian Cross. Resistance is not an option. Lovereading Review to follow.
One of the great characters of children’s books, the Demon Headmaster rules his school with his sea-green eyes through which he hypnotises the pupils. When Dinah arrives she sets up SPLAT, a group designed to protect the pupils from the head’s paranormal powers and to break his dictatorship. From the very first day at her new school, Dinah can see that something is horribly wrong. The children are strangely neat and well-behaved and they even work during break. What's going on? How can she find out the truth? And what is the secret of the Headmaster's control? A brilliant spooky series for readers aged eight upwards who relish stories with intriguing plots and sharply contrasting characters.
July 2017 Book of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month July 2017 Award-winning David Solomons’ hero Luke is back for a sizzling new adventure and this time he has acquired Stellar, a super-powered twin from another dimension. If a twin sounds like fun, think again. Stellar is super-cool with super-hero hair and rocket-powered shoes and Luke finds him exceptionally irritating. And he is sure he is up to no good. After all, Luke reasons, why would he travel out of his own dimension and across space if he didn’t have an evil plan? Luke’s schemes to bring down his evil twin are hilarious and predictably imaginative. ~ Julia Eccleshare The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “My Brother is a Superhero set the bar high, but this third in the quartet does not fall short – it’s just as crammed with laughs, adventure, wit and emotional depth. And Serge. Magnifique!” Julia Eccleshare's Picks of the Month for July 2017 What the Ladybird Heard on Holiday by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks My Evil Twin is a Supervillain by David Solomons

Next thing they know, Danny wins a prestigious award for bravery, and is flown out on an all-expenses-paid trip to a fancy resort in Norway with his friends. The kids can't believe their luck! Their flight, the resort and all of the amazing things they get to do and see - it all seems too good to be true. Which is exactly what makes Danny suspicious...

Bestselling Andy McNab and award-winning Phil Earle join forces for the very first time, and the results are hilarious! Danny Mack's mates are brilliant: there's his best mate Giraffles (yeh, you read that right), so-called because of his unusually long neck; the MandM twins (you got it - like the chocolate) who are always finishing each other's sentences; and Lucky Success, who, well I reckon you can guess how he got his name. They're the best mates a kid could ask for, and when an epic school trip is announced, they're all properly made up about it. Because school trips are just an excuse to have a big laugh with your mates, right? Erm, WRONG. Let's just say that this is a school trip like no other, and Danny, Giraffles, Lucky and the MandMs have got a real challenge on their hands. Will they make it through? If Danny has anything to do with it, you bet they will! Brilliantly illustrated by Robin Boyden, illustrator of David Solomon's My Arch-Enemy is a Brain in a Jar, and full of laughs and a lot of heart, Get Me Out of Here! is without a doubt the book of the year.
