Tapper Watson and the Quest for the Nemo Machine:
Tapper Watson is just an ordinary Erisean boy who loves adventure stories. But when one of his sixty-seven cousins sends him away on a smugglers' submarine through the River Lethe to other worlds, he just wants to go home again. On an unscheduled visit to Earth he meets Fern Shakespeare, and a talking plant called Morse, and their adventures begin. When he finds himself being chased through worlds by a pair of trigger-happy lobster mobsters in search of the mysterious Nemo Machine, Tapper begins to realise that he might not be so ordinary after all...
The Raven Throne:
Cordelia has been crowned the Raven Queen, but with new power comes new danger. The unmissable sequel to The Raven Heir and conclusion to the epic middle-grade fantasy series perfect for fans of Abi Elphinstone and Piers Torday.
Once their triplet Cordelia became the Raven Queen, Giles and Rosalind knew they would have to learn to beahve in court. No more fighting for Rosalind and no more singing for Giles. What they didn't forsee was having to foil a plot against their sister. When Cordelia falls into an enchanted sleep and cannot be woken, Rosalind and Giles must quest across the kingdom to seek help from the ancient spirits of the land. But their family's greatest enemies lurk at every turn and it will take all of the triplets' deepest strengths to fight against them. A thrilling finale to the magical and mystical series.
