    Hand-picked favourites
    Jenny McLachlan's The Land of Roar is the first in a series of fantasy adventures full of imagination, humour and heart.

    It has echoes of Peter Pan, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Neverending Story and Jumanji and will happily sit next to Nevermoor, Wizards of Once and How to Train Your Dragon on any child's bookshelf.

    Believing is just the beginning... When Arthur and Rose were little, they were heroes in the Land of Roar, an imaginary world that they found by climbing through the folding bed in their grandad's attic. Roar was filled with things they loved - dragons, mermaids, ninja wizards and adventure - as well as things that scared them (including a very creepy scarecrow.)

    Now the twins are 11, Roar is just a memory. But when they help Grandad clean out the attic, Arthur is horrified as Grandad is pulled into the folding bed and vanishes. Is he playing a joke? Or is Roar... real?
