    Hi! I'm Charlie (Don't call me Charlotte - ever!). History is boring, right? Wrong! The Victorians weren't all deadly dull and drippy. Lottie certainly isn't. She's eleven - like me - but she's left school and has a job as a nursery maid. Her life is really hard, just work work work, but I bet she'd know what to do about my mum's awful boyfriend and his wimpy little son. I bet she wouldn't mess it all up like I do.

    Sure to delight young fans of Double Act and The Story of Tracy Beaker, The Lottie Project is one of our favourite Jacqueline Wilson books!

  • Because a Fire Was in My Head

    Michael Morpurgo

    Product Code: AHCUQ
    Paperback 7 years +
    Published by Faber and Faber, edited by War Horse author and former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by Roald Dahl collaborator Quentin Blake, Because a Fire Was in my Head is a poetry anthology to treasure forever.

    Great for those just getting into poems or a perfect introduction, the book contains poems from a diverse range of writers. Comedian Spike Milligan's On the Ning Nang Nong is hilariously witty, Benjamin Zephaniah's Dis Fighting is an important and poignant piece that covers important themes, while John Lennon's I Sat Belonely has some trademark Beatles humour in it while Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky also offers an insight into a talented writer's mind.

    Other established poets featured in the book include John Keats, William Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson and W. B. Yeats.

  • Out of the Ashes

    Michael Morpurgo

    Product Code: AEHMS
    Paperback
    This story is not a story at all. It all happened. On New Year's Day Becky Morley begins to write her diary. By March, her world has changed forever.

    Foot-and-mouth disease breaks out on a pig farm hundreds of miles from the Morleys' Devon home, but soon the nightmare is a few fields away. Local sheep are infected and every animal is destroyed.

    Will the Morleys' flock be next? Will their pedigree dairy herd, the sows with their piglets, and Little Josh, Becky's hand-reared lamb, survive? Or will they be slaughtered too? The waiting and hoping is the most agonizing experience of Becky's life... Michael Morpurgo's Out of the Ashes is a poignant read.

  • Through the Looking-Glass

    Lewis Carroll

    Product Code: AMHCJ
    Paperback
    Alice's second adventure takes her through the looking-glass to a place even curiouser than Wonderland. She finds herself caught up in the great looking-glass chess game and sets off to become a queen. It isn't as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by nonsense characters who crop up and insist on reciting poems. Some of these poems, such as 'The Walrus and The Carpenter' and 'Jabberwocky', are as famous as the Alice stories themselves. Macmillan was the original publisher of Alice in 1865 and is proud to remain true to the vision of its creators. Every bit as iconic are Sir John Tenniel's remarkable illustrations, perfectly capturing the combination of the ordinary and the extraordinary at the heart of Wonderland.
