            A boy and a fast-talking terrier glove puppet form a hilarious double act in this warm and funny illustrated novel for readers eight years and older. Twelve-year-old Freddie Foxworthy just wants to do arts and crafts. They're easier to deal with than his peers, and far more rewar...ding. His latest project is to create the perfect glove puppet from papier-mache. But when ashes from his metalhead neighbour's deceased bull terrier get into the mix, he accidentally makes a growling puppet with an unpredictable mouth! Freddie has an overload of mysteries to solve - who is to blame for the late Masher's death? Was Masher responsible for the disappearance a neighbourhood cat? And, most of all, is Masher actually for real? Surely Freddie couldn't be causing all this chaos himself... Masher is acclaimed author, illustrator and arts-and-crafts guru Fifi Colston's warm and funny novel about animal companions, imaginary friends, perceived enemies, and finding your happy place. No dogs or papier-mache were harmed in the making of this book.

            A delightful illustrated novel for children about a goat and a hedgehog who meet in a farm field and become best friends. Goat has a tiny pink shed in a rolling paddock. She likes to stand on top of the little shed and dream of meeting other goats in other paddocks. Sometimes she... looks at the sky and imagines the clouds are her friends, especially when they look like goats bouncing and bounding in their sky paddocks. Most of the time Goat is lonely. She wishes the family in the pink house at the top of the hill would find another goat for the paddock. A best friend goat. One day, while Goat is looking at the sky and dreaming of having a best friend, she hears a strange squeaky sound coming from a ball of prickles. Goat realises it's a hedgehog, and that the strange squeaky noise is crying. This is the beginning of a most unexpected friendship, which somehow works even though Goat is a creature of the day and Hedgehog prefers the night. Life in the paddock is never boring now they can watch the clouds together, and from time to time they are joined by visitors. Even though the two characters never leave their paddock, excitement always has a way of finding them. Chock-full of philosophy and rural charm, Little Tales of Hedgehog and Goat is made magical by Paula Green's prose and Kimberly Andrews' lively illustrations. It's a perfect bedtime chapter book to be enjoyed by child and adult, and all fans of Winnie the Pooh, the Wind in the Willows and Snake and Lizard.

            The first book in the hotly anticipated new fantasy adventure series for readers age 9+, from A. F. Steadman. If you like Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Eragon or His Dark Materials, you'll love this . . . Unicorns don't belong in fairy tales; they belong in nightmares. So begins S...kandar and the Unicorn Thief. Soar into a world where unicorns are real - and they're deadly. They can only be tamed by the rider who hatches them. Thirteen-year-old Skandar Smith has only ever wanted to be a unicorn rider, and the time has finally come for him to take his Hatchery Exam, which will determine whether he is destined to hatch a unicorn egg. But when Skandar is stopped from taking the exam, and the mysterious and frightening Weaver steals the most powerful unicorn in the world, becoming a rider proves a lot more dangerous than he could ever have imagined. And what if Skandar was always destined to be the villain rather than the hero? Get ready for unlikely heroes, elemental magic, fierce sky battles, ancient secrets, nail-biting races and, of course, bloodthirsty unicorns. This will be the biggest new series of 2022.
