Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2018

Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for February (2017)

A sudden shout outside the office door nearly made the headmaster fall off his chair. Under other circumstances, Eliot might have felt slightly sorry for the nervous wreck of a man in front of him. The only mystery greater than how Graham Sopweed got the job of headmaster, was how he had managed to keep it.

Everything was going so well for Eliot.

He had a glowing recommendation from his school and a glowing track record but now his home is under threat and his mum is ill and suddenly nothing is going right for Eliot at all.

Eliot needs a hero, but he might be about to get more than he bargained for.

When a shooting star crashes to earth, it lands Eliot smack bang in the path of Virgo - a young Zodiac goddess on a mission. But when the pair accidentally release Thanatos, a wicked death daemon imprisoned beneath Stonehenge, they’ve got nowhere to turn for help but to the old Olympian gods.

These gods are used to getting their own way and they’re more than capable of creating a little chaos themselves. After centuries of cushy retirement on earth, are Zeus and his crew up to the task of saving the world - and solving Elliot's problems too?

Describing herself as having 'puddle-water eyes and very disobedient hair’, author, comedian, songwriter and poet Maz Evans began writing as a journalist. She founded Story Stew, an anarchic creative writing programme that has visited primary schools and literary festivals around the UK before capturing children's (not to mention Waterstones booksellers') imaginations with her brilliantly titled first novel, Who Let the Gods Out and the storming sequel Simply the Quest. The third installment, Beyond the Odyssey, is published on 5 April 2018 and is available to pre-order now.

“Di Immortales!”

This is a great adventure adventure story based around Greek and Roman mythology set during modern day England. It's exciting and funny (what more could you want?), but it also deals with some very real issues... More
