  • Geek Girl

    Holly Smale

    Product Code: AJRKJ
    Paperback 11 years +
    (1)
    "My name is Harriet Manners, and I am a geek." Harriet Manners knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a "jiffy" lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. She knows that bats always turn left when exiting a cave and that peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite. But she doesn't know why nobody at school seems to like her. So when Harriet is spotted by a top model agent, she grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her best friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of impossibly handsome model Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves. Veering from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, Harriet begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn't seem to like her any more than the real world did. As her old life starts to fall apart, will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything? The award-winning debut by bestselling author Holly Smale.

    Product Code: AXGQP
    Paperback 3 years +
    The Mr Men are very busy, driving diggers, fire engines and tractors. All except for Mr Busy who is going to the beach. Will Mr Busy be able to just drive on by when he sees all the chaos? The Mr Men and Little Miss Adventures take Roger Hargreaves' beloved characters on amazing trips to other worlds and different times where they have all kinds of funny and exciting escapades. The books are a new larger format, so that you can enjoy their inimitable stories in even greater scale. Bold illustrations and funny stories make Mr Men and Little Miss the perfect story time experience for children aged two up. Have you collected all the Adventures: Mr. Men Adventure with Dinosaurs; Mr. Men Adventure in Egypt; Mr. Men Adventure with Knights; Mr. Men Adventure with Pirates; Mr. Men Adventure in the Jungle. It all started with a tickle. Roger Hargreaves' son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. Mr Tickle, the first of the Mr Men, was born. Mr Tickle was soon joined by Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump. The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters. What Roger really wanted was to make children laugh, which is probably why his own favourite character is Mr Silly.

  • The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo Book 2)

    Rick Riordan

    Product Code: BOGLO
    Paperback
    The second title in Rick Riordan's Trials of Apollo series - set in the action-packed world of Percy Jackson. The god Apollo, cast down to earth and trapped in the form of a gawky teenage boy as punishment, must set off on the second of his harrowing (and hilarious) trials. He and his companions seek the ancient oracles - restoring them is the only way for Apollo to reclaim his place on Mount Olympus - but this is easier said than done. Somewhere in the American Midwest is a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again . . . if it doesn't kill him or drive him insane first. Standing in Apollo's way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate - a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of a now-mortal goddess, a bronze dragon, and some familiar demigod faces from Camp Half-Blood. With them by his side, can Apollo face down the greatest challenge of his four thousand years of existence?
