              Kids adore Colin Thompson's brand of off-the-planet humour. Now here's an off-the-planet series to make them laugh even more! Three years ago, Stark Contrast volunteered his family to live on the moon. Since then, the reality TV show about their adventures has become the most pop...ular show on earth and the Contrasts are mega famous. But three years inside a big plastic bubble is a long time, and the four of them - Stark, his wife, Laura, and their children, Crocus and Jack - are way beyond bored. They just want to go home. The trouble is, none of them know how to fly the spaceship, and it's not programmed to take them home for another two years. In Watch This Space, with the help of the robot that was sent with them, the Contrast family manage to break into the spaceship and escape ...except that instead of flying back to earth, the spaceship heads off into deep space. The series will be their attempts to return home via a series of incredible, ridiculous, scary and just plain weird planets.

              When Peter and his friend Festival destroyed the book called HOW TO LIVE FOREVER so it could no longer work its terrible spell, they didn't know that destroying such a powerful book would have unintended consequences. Now, the world is in the worst drought ever - major rivers dri...ed up, and water rationed to a single litre per person a day with talk of less. Festival comes back from the world inside the museum to get Peter. The river they reversed is drowning Festival's world and they need to re-create the book to reverse the water flow. Neither can remember all of the book, but hopefully by working together they will be able to recall every word. Can they reverse the water flow so that it rains in Peter's world again? And if they recreate the evil book, can they entomb it so that it can never been accessed again?

              Betty and her friend FFiona love cooking. The trouble is, they are both so useless at it that their families make themselves ill just to avoid their meals, because their meals would make them even more ill. It isn't that their families are too kind to tell the girls how bad their... cooking is - they actually tell them all the time. But Betty and Ffiona don't believe them, and now the girls are planning to open Transylvania Waters's first gourmet restaurant. Queen Mordonna forbids them ...unless they can prove their cooking skills by winning TV's most popular cooking contest. Will they poison all the judges, or will they triumph and bring their 'interesting' creations to the discerning population?

              The Floods are back in their rightful place as rulers of Transylvania Waters and there is an enormous amount to do to bring the country out of the Dark Ages and into the twenty-first century. What does a country need more than anything to become part of the modern world? Well, it... needs tons of things, including socks, PlayStations, genetically modified food and seventy-three varieties of sausage, but above all else it needs maps. Winchflat's new wife, Maldegarde Ankle, has been appointed Transylvania Waters's first ever Official Map Maker. What she discovers during her cartographic travels will astound, terrify, amuse and intrigue you. In remote caves she will find ancient fossils with enough DNA for Winchflat to re-create long-dead creatures. And in even more remote caves she will find the original inhabitants of Transylvania Waters - a long-lost race of Neolithic Accountants . . .

              What happens when the King goes Doolally? Find out in the latest Floods adventure. Everyone gets old, even witches and wizards. Their backs get stiff. Their feet get sore, and their brains go and live far, far away. Not even Nerlin Flood, the King of Transylvania Waters, is immun...e to the curse of old age. The rest of the family have noticed that Nerlin is slipping into total Doolallyness u including having an invisible friend called Geoffrey-Geoffrey who warns him not to eat broccoli because it will give him global warming. Only the Old Crones can help Nerlin, so his family travel high up into the mountains to visit them. Will the wisest witch of all, Gruinard, be able to cure him, or is Nerlin doomed to spend his twilight years talking to the wall, wearing a crooked jacket* and incompetence pants? * Which is actually a more accurate description of a straitjacket.
