    This mysterious collection includes three puzzling page-turners from the bestselling author, Anthony Horowitz - including two Sherlock Holmes stories.

    The House of Silk finds London frozen by a seemingly everlasting winter in 1890. Holmes and Watson are enjoying a nice cup of tea in 221b Baker Street when an agitated gentleman arrives unannounced. He mentions a scar-faced man has been stalking him and soon our heroic detectives find themselves in a case that stretches from the streets of London to the criminal underworld of Boston...

    In Moriarty, Holmes is dead - he fell to his doom along with his nemesis Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls. But the death of Moriarty has inspired a fiendish new criminal mastermind - and Pinkerton agent Frederick Chase has to hunt this elusive criminal down before he has the chance to cause significant damage; Magpie Murders is an Atticus Pünd story that finds the talented detective looking into a murder at Pye Hall that may not be quite what it seems.

    For fans of authors like: Ngaio Marsh, Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle.

  • Never Eat Shredded Wheat

    Hand-picked favourites
    This handy and humorous book is a cornucopia of mnemonics, full of familiar examples from our childhood as well as more recent ones and some alternatives to the traditional versions.

    As our memories are mysterious, we need to associate things to relatable bits of information in order to remember them correctly. Consequently, mnemonics are a great way to locate information within your memory by creating shortcuts. For example, 'Never Eat Shredded Wheat' is an amusing and visual reference to provide our brains with an instant cue.

    Ranging from history and science to language and art, this book has lots of useful information to keep you entertained. In addition, there are sections on working out your own methods for mnemonics and memory aids.

  • A Monster Calls

    Patrick Ness

    Product Code: MCX2
    Paperback 11 years +
    Hand-picked favourites
    The winner of both the Carnegie Medal and Kate Greenaway Medal in 2012, Chaos Walking author Patrick Ness' A Monster Calls is an extraordinarily moving novel about the difficult subject of terminal illness and coming to terms with loss.

    Based on an idea by the late Siobhan Dowd, this is an unforgettable read. 'The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do...' is how the book begins, but it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. This monster is something different - something ancient and something wild.

    Now an acclaimed film starring Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver and Liam Neeson, A Monster Calls is a heartbreakingly beautiful read.
