Saturday night. It was not a night to be spending alone, riding a bus. When he was a teenager at the comprehensive, Saturday night without a girl, without a date, without at least your mates to raise hell with, Saturday night alone would have been shameful.

Stargazey World follows the story of Sheena Robinson, a feisty, complex youngster who often feels guilty about her lack of concentration. At school her work doesn’t improve and her chaotic mop of tangled green hair is mocked, but this feisty Scouser has the ready wit and true grit to deal with her bullies. When Sheena visits Cornwall for her cousin’s wedding, she must share a bedroom with the tomboyish Carys. By day everything is normal, but by night the animals on the bedroom wallpaper come to life. The creatures take the girls on adventures around Stargazey World, a strange place mutated by Sheena’s imagination and muddled thinking. As the adventures play out, the girls face a fight against evil and injustice when they are attacked by bizarre beings including Thunder, a deadly leather-clad rockstar and his sister Lightning, a glitzy murderous screwball. They must take on Earthquake, a destructive monster from the deep and Fire, a vibrant and uncontrollable dancer. In each battle, Sheena is helped by a different animal from the wallpaper. First, the chivalrous elephant, Ahem, then Sport the streetwise kangaroo. Help also arrives in the form of Pal the bear, a gentle giant, and the agile and resourceful Chatty the mongoose. Courageously, Sheena, Carys and the heroic animals outwit each threatening hazard. Christine Dawe’s debut children’s book is a modern fantasy adventure with flashes of humour. The story encourages readers to have courage in the face of adversity, even when faced with life-threatening jeopardy. Inspired by the work of David Walliams, Roald Dahl and J. M. Barrie, Stargazey World will appeal to young readers aged 8-11 years who enjoy fantasy and adventure stories.

Particular attention is paid to her engaging characters, strong sense of place and the comedy, which feature so strongly in her novels.

DescriptionHenry and Winston are twins. They develop a secret language between themselves which leads to them being misdiagnosed as having learning difficulties. They soon discover that this diagnosis helps them get away with more than their long suffering brother and sister.

About the Author Amanda has suffered from schizophrenia as long as she can remember. However she remained undiagnosed for years and got through school and nurse training to become a learning disabilities nurse as it is now called. When she was twenty six someone spiked her drink in a pub which led to her capture by the psychiatric dept. Now thanks to their treatment she is on long term sick leave and probably will stay there for the rest of her life. Having experienced both sides of the psychiatric fence most of her fictional writing is concerned with some type of mental health problem.

"Chew on this," says Melrose Plant to Richard Jury, who's in the hospital being driven crazy by Hannibal, a nurse who likes to speculate on his chances for survival. Jury could use a good story, preferably one not ending with his own demise. Plant tells Jury of something he overheard in The Grave Maurice, a pub near the hospital. A woman told an intriguing story about a girl named Nell Ryder, granddaughter to the owner of the Ryder Stud Farm in Cambridgeshire, who went missing more than a year before and has never been found. What is especially interesting to Plant is that Nell is also the daughter of Jury's surgeon. But Nell's disappearance isn't the only mystery at the Ryder farm. A woman has been found dead on the track-a woman who was a stranger even to the Ryders. But not to Plant. She's the woman he saw in The Grave Maurice. Together with Jury, Nell's family, and the Cambridgeshire police, Plant embarks on a search to find Nell and bring her home. But is there more to their mission than just restoring a fifteen-year-old girl to her family? The Grave Maurice is the eighteenth entry in the Richard Jury series and, from its pastoral opening to its calamitous end, is full of the same suspense and humor that devoted readers expect from Martha Grimes.
