And Barney and Liam are determined to find him and catch him. But they're about to discover that there's much mo...re to be found at Bailey's Swamp than some big old fish.

              Edsel Grizzler: Ghostly Shadows (PDF ebook)

              By Roy, James

              The third book in the fantastic Edsel Grizzler trilogy from award-winning author James Roy. Edsel and his friend Jacq are digging a hole under the blazing Widen sun but they know why. The railway tunnel below their feet is also a mystery. And when they finally make their way to G...rand City, the list of things they don't know just gets longer and longer. Everything they see, everything they're told, just makes them more confused. Can Edsel keep the promise he made to Ben and the children of Verdada to rescue them? Why is the usually feisty Jacq suddenly so pale and forgetful? And who are the strange, ghostly figures that form wispy dreams with their bare hands? In the final, thrilling installment of the Edsel Grizzler trilogy, Edsel must not only find answers to all this and more - he must also go deep within, find his true self, and discover once and for all who he really is.

Boys think about sex: a.when they're awake b.when they're asleep c.when they're half awake and half asleep d.all of the above Growing up is tough, especially the bit between being a boy and being a man. It's t...ough because so much is changing at once. Your body, your emotions, your interests and the way other people see you. The way you look at girls, and the way they look at you. Plus there's those dreams. Using humour and sensitivity, James Roy presents a book that will help any young man navigate the confusing minefield that lies between boyhood and manhood.

              Problem Child (EPUB ebook)

              By Roy, James

              Max Quigley doesn't think he's a bully. He's an "observer". He observes the habits, interests and peculiarities of other people, which he then points out. A lot. Triffin Nordstrom isn't really all that clever. He's a nerd. He reads too many fat books, makes medieval seige machine...s out of Lego, and probably speaks fluent Elvish. Plus he lives way out in the bush with his mum, who he calls Ulrika. Max and Triffin. It's a match made in hell, and it's going to get uglier than a second-hand cheesecake. In this hilarious look at playground politics, James Roy has created the ultimate odd couple, two boys who don't see eye to eye, but have to, somehow.

              In this companion short story collection to the highly successful and award-winning collection, Town, young people are linked in very different ways-through chance meetings, found objects, social connections, the civil disobedience of the shadowy Poet, and the streets of a city. ...This place has no name, but any reader who has ever lived in a city will find it immediately familiar. It is a striking collection of connected stories that reflects the young peoples' lives and those of the people they pass each day.
