    One Thing

    A brand new and completely original Charlie and Lola picture book from the bestselling, multi award-winning author and artist, Lauren Child. I have this little sister Lola. She is small and very funny. Sometimes for a treat, Mum says, "We are going to the shops and you may choose one thing." "One thing to share?" says Lola. I say, "One thing for you and one thing for me, which means two actual things." Charlie and Lola return in a perfectly funny, perfectly formed picture book that sees top negotiator Lola take on numbers in everyday life and bend them to her endearing and unique will. A brilliant book to introduce the non-scary nature of counting and sums to very young children, One Thing is vintage Lauren Child: an immediate and enduring classic to delight fans new and old the world over.

    Silence is Goldfish

    The third YA novel from the bestselling and prizewinning author of MY SISTER LIVES ON THE MANTELPIECE and KETCHUP CLOUDS, in which Tessie-T discovers she's a Pluto and her parents wanted a Mercury or Venus, at least. My name is Tess Turner - at least, that's what I've always been told. I have a voice but it isn't mine. It used to say things so I'd fit in, to please my parents, to please my teachers. It used to tell the universe I was something I wasn't. It lied. It never occurred to me that everyone else was lying too. But the words that really hurt weren't the lies: it was six hundred and seventeen words of truth that turned my world upside down. Words scare me, the lies and the truth, so I decided to stop using them. I am Pluto. Silent. Inaccessible. Billions of miles away from everything I thought I knew. Tessie-T has never really felt she fitted in and after what she read that night on her father's blog she knows for certain that she never will. How she deals with her discovery makes an entirely riveting, heart-breaking story told through Tess's eyes as she tries to find her place in the world.
