Picture book

Gail is not an average snail. Snails are small and slow, but Gail wants to blaze a different trail. “Be brave! Be bold!” she likes to say as she studies to be the first snail in space. It’s a long, hard journey, but Gail stays tough and strong. Can she follow her heart all the way to the moon?

Junior Fiction

For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary is one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite . . .


In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders. But when a brutal killing takes place on their very doorstep, the Thursday Murder Club find themselves in the middle of their first live case. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing eighty but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer before it's too late?
