    Meet Nikki Maxwell and prepare to read some truly a-dork-able stories - including (for the first time in paperback) Frenemies Forever - with this 12-book collection of Dork Diaries stories by Rachel Renee Russell.

    Written in a fun-filled diary format, these books offer an insight into the life of the tween dork, Nikki. When she moves to a new school she decides it's the perfect time to leave her old lame ways behind - but things are never that simple.

    With fun sketches and doodles, the diary entries find Nikki opening up her heart as she battles with her arch-nemesis Mackenzie over her dreams of becoming a pop star and tackles the subject of love with hilariously dorky consequences.

    These books will be enjoyed by any child aged 9 or over who enjoys (or endures!) the sparklier side of tween life.

    Philip Pullman's books tackle important, controversial and difficult subjects with style, wisdom and authority. The His Dark Materials trilogy is often heralded as a modern masterpiece and it's featured on this unabridged audio collection across three CDs. There are also four CDs featuring the unabridged books from the Sally Lockhart Quartet.

    The monumental His Dark Materials books introduce Lyra, an orphan who lives in a parallel universe where science, theology and magic are entwined. As she embarks on a search for a sinister plot that involves stolen children, she soon finds herself on a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust... Now is the perfect time to listen to these thought-provoking and captivating stories before the BBC adaptation starring Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Clarke Peters arrives on our screens later this year.

    The Sally Lockhart Quartet opens with The Ruby in the Smoke, a book that finds Sally receiving an anonymous letter shortly after the death of her father at sea; the dire warning it contains makes a man die of fear at her feet... Sally decides to find out the truth about her father's death and finds herself plunged into a terrifying mystery in the heart of Victorian London - and it all seems to revolve around a deadly blood-soaked jewel.

    The His Dark Materials audiobooks are read by Philip Pullman and a full cast, while the Sally Lockhart Quartet is read by Anton Lesser.
