    One of the Premier League's most successful and popular players, New York City FC midfielder and Chelsea and England legend Frank Lampard has turned his attention to writing stories for young children - and their mixture of football and action hits the back of the net every time!

    The idea of Frankie's Magic Football came to light as Frank was reading bedtime stories to his daughters. He created the character of football-obsessed Frankie and decided that he and his team-mates should dabble in magic so they could play football matches against some unlikely opponents including pirates, cowboys and knights.

    This 10-book collection is great for parents to share with readers (even reluctant ones!) as young as 5, especially if both have a keen interest in football. With stories as exciting as an FA Cup final and characters based on Frank's former team-mates, you'll be cheering Frankie and his friends on throughout the pages.

Soon, she's uncovering all sorts of dangerously dark secrets about her family.

    The intrigue continues in its sequel Confessions: The Private School Murders when many young women from New York's most exclusive neighbourhoods are being murdered - and the police just aren't looking for answers in the right place. Tandy thinks this might be the work of a serial killer, and she fits the right profile... Book number three, The Paris Mysteries, finds Tandy and her siblings moving to Paris to live with their distant uncle. Once there, Tandy discovers a locked room that is full of ugly secrets, and as Tandy delves deeper she realises the family's enemies will soon be out for revenge.
