    Cornelia and the Jungle Machine
    A picture book that takes the young reader into the jungle and immerses them in a filmic universe of mechanical wonders

    Cornelia and her parents move in to a new house. Bored, she is sent to play "outside." She discovers a hidden tree house and a boy her own age...

    "Do you really live here all alone?" she asks.
    "No I live here with my inventions. Come and take a look inside."

    Inside Cornelia is introduced to a magical machine. A jungle machine!

    Nora Brech's gothic illustrations are packed with imaginative details and perspectives. Her pictures play with references to classical children's literature, and the book's large format is fully utilized when Cornelia climbs up the tall trees; the drawings quite simply give the reader butterflies.

    Through an extreme wide-angle lens, the reader is sucked in to a powerfully detailed world.

  • Secret Commonwealth (#2)
    Secret Commonwealth (#2)
    It is twenty years since the events of La Belle Sauvage- The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey.

    It is seven years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford's Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground-breaking, bestselling His Dark Materials sequence.

    Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue. And she is no longer a child . . .

    The second volume of Sir Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust sees Lyra, now twenty years old, and her daemon Pantalaimon, forced to navigate their relationship in a way they could never have imagined, and drawn into the complex and dangerous factions of a world that they had no idea existed. Pulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; once a boy with a boat and a mission to save a baby from the flood, now a man with a strong sense of duty and a desire to do what is right.

    Theirs is a world at once familiar and extraordinary, and they must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and into Asia, in search for what is lost - a city haunted by daemons, a secret at the heart of a desert, and the mystery of the elusive Dust.

    The Secret Commonwealth is truly a book for our times; a powerful adventure and a thought-provoking look at what it is to understand yourself, to grow up and make sense of the world around you. This is storytelling at its very best from one of our greatest writers.

  • Testaments
    And so I step up, into the darkness within; or else the light.

    When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead.

    With The Testaments, the wait is over.

    Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.

    'Dear Readers- Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.' Margaret Atwood
