May 2018 Book of the Month | Not only is it lovely to look at, but Hoakes Island gives the brain a really good work-out too. Readers are challenged to find out what happened to Henry Hoakes, owner of Hoakes Island amusement park, who vanished in mysterious circumstances. This means studying the notebook and map he left behind. On each page of the book there are ingenious puzzles to solve, with more clues to be decoded on the map too – a special red lens neatly included with the book reveals hidden images in the pictures. Poor old Henry went missing in 1953 and there’s a charming retro feel to the illustrations, and some jolly ads on the map too. Stylish, puzzle fun.
Switch off the lights, turn on your torch and come on a wonderful shadow adventure with Midnight Monsters! This follow-up book to the immensely popular Midnight Creatures takes you on a journey through five more beautifully crafted pop-up scenes full of hidden monsters to find, from the werewolf in the woods to the krampus in the castle. Use your torch to spot the monsters when they appear as shadows on your wall.
