The brilliantly funny third Sam Wu book - the bravest scaredy-cat in the world!
Sam Wu is NOT afraid of anything. Except for quite a lot of things. Like ghosts. Sharks too. And also THE DARK! And so when Sam goes camping in the woods with his friends and cousin Stanley, who knows what scary kind of things they'll face...?
Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of the Dark! is the third book in this brilliantly funny and accessible new series - perfect for newly confident readers, fans of Pamela Butchart and Julian Gough's Rabbit and Bear.
Katie and Kevin Tsang met in in 2008 while studying at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Since then they have lived on three different continents and travelled to over 40 countries together. They currently live in London. Kevin was born in Copenhagen and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. Some of Sam Wu's experiences are based on Kevin's childhood (he's feeling much more confident now). Katie was born and raised in Southern California. She has previously worked at Booktrust, the UK's largest children's reading charity, and also writes YA fiction as Katherine Webber.

Intensely likeable and sharply observed comic capers" - Guardian
"If you're looking for a non-white protagonist it's slim pickings indeed. Happily Sam Wu is about to change all that. A hero of Asian heritage with a diverse set of friends . . . it's enormous fun, madcap and relatable" - Bookseller
"Wonderfully illustrated by Nathan Reed (with excellent use made of contrasting night-time images to make the book appealing), this is ideal for children who can read alone and also great to encourage reluctant readers, who will find their efforts amply repaid. It's fun, it's funny and the characters are great" - parentsintouch.co.uk
