The magical adventure of an ordinary girl who finds herself transformed into a fairy in the heart of London

Being a fairy is a lot more dangerous than you think ...

Ever since Rowan was transformed into a fairy, her life has been filled with perilous adventure. And when her mum is kidnapped by evil Vulpes and his army of foxes, Rowan sets off on her most dangerous mission yet. With the help of her fairy friends - plus a tiger released from London Zoo! - she's sure she can rescue her mum and save the fairy realms.

But Vulpes is cunning and sly. And he's luring Rowan right into a trap ...

Biographical Notes

Rowan Oakwing came from an idea that popped into Ed's head and wouldn't leave until he wrote it down. He lives in North London and is married with two young daughters who would like to be fairies. He hopes this book will give them that chance.

When he isn't writing books, Ed works as Head of Film and Television at Shoebox Films where his partners include the film director Joe Wright (Pan, Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) and the venerable film producer, Paul Webster (Pan, Atonement, Eastern Promises). Shoebox's most recent film was the critically acclaimed Locke starring Tom Hardy on which Ed was a Development Producer.

Praise for Rowan Oakwing: Utterly fresh, but very much a classic ... a modern Peter Pan — Irena Brignull
Superbly imaginative yet incredibly believable, Rowan Oakwing is a real new star. — Parents in Touch
Which child wouldn't like the idea of being transformed into a a fairy - with wings?! [...] full of adventure, the books also raise questions around parenting and how, despite loving their children, parents don't always make the right decisions for them. — Alice Short, Reading Zone

Louise Spilsbury, Mike Gordon

Looking at both the history of life on Earth and the scientific breakthroughs that led to our greater understanding of the living world, this book gives the definitive overview of the theory of evolution. It takes an in-depth look at the work of Charles Darwin, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace as well as topics such as genetic modification, artificial selection and bacterial resistance. Starting with fossils and early life forms, the book investigates the development and diversification of life on Earth over billions of years. Topics such as adaptation and specification, as well as convergent evolution, symbiosis and genetics help illustrate how evolution affects all living beings and has lead to the huge biodiversity we have on our planet today. Mike Gordon's illustrations lend a light touch and add a dash of humour.- Features biographies of key people, such as Charles Darwin, Alfred Russel Wallace, Thomas Huxley, James Watson and Francis Crick.- Matches the New Curriculum programmes of study for evolution, inheritance and genetics at KS2 and KS3.
