Click to view full size image

"Every time a child gets lost in the woods, the fairies help them find the right path home; being careful not to let any grown ups see them, of course. But when Bluebell the fairy comes across a blind girl lost in the woods, she has a new challenge on her hands. Just pointing the way isn’t going to be enough this time. Can Bluebell find a way to show the little girl which path to take to get home? Or is this one child the fairies can’t help?"

Snowball The Oddball Kobold

"Snowball is a white kobold; something so rare that the other kobolds in his tribe won’t accept him as a proper kobold.  In fact, they delight in making poor Snowball’s life miserable.  But Snowball is determined that someday he’ll show them that there’s nothing wrong with being a white kobold.

One day, in Snowball’s tenth Winter, something strange comes to the mountains where Snowball and his tribe live.  The kobolds want to know what it is, but with their red-brown colour they’ll be spotted much too easily in the snow.  Only Snowball, with his white colouring, has a chance of investigating without being spotted.  Could this be Snowball’s chance to prove he’s a useful member of his tribe and finally be accepted as a proper kobold?"

Goodies For Grandmother

Click to view full size image

 

"Brownies share the woods with the fairies, but - unlike the fairies - the brownies are very naughty.  They love playing tricks, love stealing anything travellers happen to be carrying through the woods, and love getting people lost.  So when one of them spots Ella carrying a basket of goodies, he just can't resist trying to steal them from her.  But Ella isn't going to let him near it.  Bob the brownie quickly figures out that he'll have to come up with a sneakier plan to get his little hands on that basket of goodies.
Based on the well-known story of 'Little Red Riding Hood' but with no big bad wolf to eat Grandmother, nor woodcutter to save her, 'Goodies For Grandmother' tells the story of a little girl in purple, a sick Grandmother, a naughty little brownie, and a clever little fairy."

Jinx And The Faerie Dragons

“Jinx's little sister, Ayla, has warned him time and time again that one day his mischief making will get him in to serious trouble. But Jinx isn't interested in his sister's warnings; not even when the trouble she warns him about is a cave full of goblins.

Like most pixies, Jinx loves to play tricks and explore. But, unlike most pixies, Jinx takes his tricks too far on a regular basis, causing chaos and taking risks that no other pixie would even consider, much to the amusement of his faerie dragon friends, Caia and Draco, and the annoyance of just about everyone else; especially Ayla. Now Jinx and his faerie dragon friends are off on a treasure hunt, and not even the threat of being captured and eaten by goblins is enough to stop them answering the call of adventure.”

"Moving to a new home can be a scary experience; especially if you're very small. That's how it is for Sooty and Scamp; a pair of gerbils chosen by a little boy named Matthew to be the ones to leave the pet shop and their other two brothers to go home with him.

Most people agree that getting a new pet is an exciting experience for any child; or adult, for that matter. But have you ever stopped to wonder how the pet feels during this time? This is the story of two little gerbils, and how they learned to adjust after a little boy took them home. The story is based on the behaviour of a pair of real gerbils, and events are shown from their point of view."

Eadweard - A Story Of 1066

Click to view full size image

"It’s October 14th 1066, and King Harold’s Saxon army is about to go in to battle against Duke William’s invading Norman army. Among the ranks of the Saxons are two boys who shouldn’t be there: Eadweard, and his best friend, Cerdic.

Daydreams of becoming great war heroes had the boys convinced to disobey their Fathers and go to war, despite the possibility of punishment if they were caught. Now it’s time for the battle to begin, and Eadweard is starting to wish he’d stayed home after all. But it’s too late to turn back now, and Eadweard finds himself witnessing the events of the battle that would later be called The Battle Of Hastings, and learning how different from his imaginings the reality of war actually is.

*Note: This is a work of fiction, which is based on actual events. It tells the story of the battle between King Harold’s Saxon army and Duke William’s Norman army, which took place a short distance away from the town of Hastings on October 14th 1066, in a place now known simply as Battle. Though this is a children’s story, the recommended reading age for this book is eight years and over, since it is a story that takes place on a battlefield, and therefore contains scenes of violence that are not suitable for younger, or more sensitive, readers."

Ulrike's Christmas

Click to view full size image

"Ulrike knows all about the Winter Solstice celebrations of the giants, being one himself. But what he doesn't know is why the humans cut down whole trees, only to take them home to decorate. Other giants tell him to forget about it, but Ulrike is curious; he needs to know why they do it.

Finally, when he's puzzled over it so much his head is sore from all the thinking, he decides that this is the year he'll figure it out, and risks a return trip to the home of the last family he watched to look for clues, despite almost being spotted last time he was there.

That's how he meets Billy, a friendly little boy who loves stories, and is happy to tell Ulrike all about tree decorating, and Santa Claus, along with a couple of stories he knows about them. Stories which Ulrike loves, and which inspire him to add some of what Billy says are Christmas celebrations to his own this Winter, in the hopes that Santa Claus will visit him too."

How To Trust Your Human

Click to view full size image

"Losing a sibling is hard. Losing three of them is even harder. Repairing a broken bond of trust is harder still.

After his three brothers disappeared, one after another, gone to a mysterious place known only as The Rainbow Bridge, Buddy the degu is all alone in his cage. Confused and frightened, he knows only one thing for certain: he last saw his brothers in the hands of the human caretaker. That knowledge breaks the bond of trust forged between Buddy and his human in the years since he was a pup, and leaves him convinced that letting her get her hands on him will mean he disappears too. Somehow, she has to convince him he’s wrong, and earn back his trust.

Based on actual events that took place in the life of one of the author’s own degus, and told from the point of view of a degu, this is the story of how patience and love taught a confused and terrified rodent how to trust again."
