    David Walliams' The Ice Monster won Children's Fiction Book of the Year at the British Book Awards and is an entirely roar-some read about a child who is determined to follow her dreams.

    Elsie is an orphan who lives on the streets of Victorian London. When she hears reports of a woolly mammoth (The Ice Monster of the title) being spotted at the North Pole, she makes it her mission to see for herself.

    A chance encounter later and Elsie is on the adventure of a lifetime - all the way from London to the heart of the Arctic... Will Elsie's dreams come true?

  • My Mum Tracy Beaker

    Jacqueline Wilson

    Product Code: BRYLD
    Hardback 9 years +
    Tracy Beaker is back, and she's a mum now... Jess and Tracy Beaker are the perfect team. Jess thinks Tracy is the best mum ever (even when Tracy shouts at her teachers). Tracy is fun and daring, but she also works hard to give Jess the family home she desperately wanted when growing up in the Dumping Ground. Their flat might be a bit mouldy but it's their happy home. But when Sean Godfrey -Tracy's rich new boyfriend - comes onto the scene, Jess is worried things are going to change. What if Sean wants to turn Jess's brilliant mum into a new person altogether? Sean's superstar mansion and fancy cars might have been Tracy's childhood dream, but maybe the Beakers' perfect home was right in front of them all along... My Mum Tracy Beaker is a fantastic new story, reuniting readers with a much-loved old friend. Just like old times, it's packed full of illustrations from Nick Sharratt throughout. Pre-order today and be one of the first to read Tracy's new story! Praise for Tracy Beaker: 'An appealing mix of events and reactions that are both entertaining and moving. A book that lingers in the mind long after it is put down.' (The Guardian) 'A breath of fresh air. It is entertaining yet tender but by no means sentimental when it confronts the need we all have for commitment in relationships, for trust, for love ... A real bonus is that the book genuinely celebrates the act of writing - and not by preaching, I promise.' (The School Librarian) `Jacqueline Wilson is hugely popular with 7- 10 year olds; she should be prescribed for all cases of reading reluctance.' (The Sunday Independent)
