    This collection features Frances Hardinge's Costa Book of the Year winner The Lie Tree alongside two other deliciously dark and twisted tales. They're suitable for ages 12 and over, but we wouldn't be surprised if adults find themselves fully absorbed into these rich worlds...

    In The Lie Tree, Faith's father is found dead under very mysterious circumstances. While searching through his belongings for clues, she discovers a strange tree that only grows healthy and bears fruit if you whisper a lie to it. This fruit will then deliver a hidden truth to anyone who eats it...

    Cuckoo Song is a beautifully eerie story that was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Triss wakes up after an accident and knows something is off. She's hungry; her sister is scared of her and her parents are whispering. She looks in her diary to find out what happened but the pages have been ripped out. Her quest for the truth takes her to places more strange and terrible than she could have ever imagined...

    Fly by Night is Frances' wonderfully inventive debut novel about a 12-year-old girl and her bad-tempered goose who become the unlikely heroes of a radical revolution.

    L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables is a classic run of children's books that has recently been adapted into a popular Netflix series. This collection, presented in a cute slipcase, includes the first three books in the series.

    In Anne of Green Gables, the scrawny, freckled girl with bright red hair arrives on Prince Edward Island and takes Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert by surprise. They were expecting a quiet boy to help them with their farm work, but instead they welcomed a chatty girl full of hope and wonder.

    Anne of Avonlea takes place five years later and finds Anne starting a job as a teacher at her old school. She's not much older than the pupils and has so much to prove. Can she inspire a love of learning?

    Finally, there's Anne of the Island, a story that finds her leaving Green Gables for university. She's always dreamt of this moment but her feelings are bittersweet - she's excited to see the world and broaden her horizons but also anxious about leaving her home, family and friends behind.
