World War II has begun. Brigit has been evacuated to Wales from her home near the aeroplane factorie...s of Coventry. But when it's revealed that her father is German, Brigit runs away to join her mother in a very special training camp, where Churchill is building a secret army of spies and saboteurs known as the Special Operations Executive. Brigit and her mother soon find themselves on the front line in Nazi-occupied France, where they search for double agents and meet with danger at every turn in their efforts to support the French resistance. But no-one will suspect Brigit is a spy, will they? After all, who would suspect a child? Featuring characters from The Silver Hand, this page-turning adventure sheds new light on the Second World War and will have readers gripped from start to finish. Flashbacks offer dramatic stories set in key moments in history.

Fresh off the boat from England, she has a job to do in the city. Her beloved grandfather Jack has been cheated out of his home and possessions by the inf...amous mafia boss, Victor Zaroff. Seeing Jack's spirit is broken, Vita is frightened and desperate to make him happy again, so she devises a plan to outwit his enemies and recover his fortune. But the plan requires some highly unusual skills - and so she sets about finding some highly unusual friends to help her out.

              Kate Pankhurst, descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, is back with another 'smart, informative, inclusive and accessible' book about women who have trail-blazed a cause.* In this case, it's the mission to respect and protect the environment. From deep in the ocean, around the Antarct...ic to the heart of a Tanzanian forest, women throughout history have made discoveries that have shown us just how amazing the Earth is and why we should look after it. Read about how Antarctic researcher Edith Farkas helped identify the hole in the Ozone Layer and made the whole world realise the effect of pollution and how Daphne Sheldrick's love for wildlife inspired her to care for young elephants who had been orphaned in the wild. In the Gambia, Isatou Ceesay is spreading the message about the damaging consequences of plastic waste and educates women in local communities about recycling. In the UK, Anita Roddick led the charge for ethical consumerism when she opened her cosmetics store, The Body Shop in 1976. From the brilliant author of Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World, which has sold over 200,000 copies. Written in Kate's engaging and playful style with brilliant facts, Fantastically Great Women Who Saved the Planet is a fantastic introduction to just a few of the women whose work and activisim has shaped the world we live in. *Fiona Noble, The Bookseller, 17th November 2017.

              By turns thrilling, dramatic and inspiring, this is the story of Jane Austen's life as you've never heard it before. It is 1809 and Fanny and Anna have just been launched on to the ruthless Regency marriage market by Fanny's mother (think Mrs Bennet). But luckily their mysterious...ly wealthy Aunt Jane is there to guide them and help them make better choices - i.e. don't get married at all! Jane plays detective to help them rescue a falsely accused friend from being transported to Australia, while Anna impetuously makes and breaks an engagement. Fanny is forced to leave the marriage market when her mother dies and she has to look after ten siblings. She learns the secret of Jane's wealth and self-possession (she is, of course, a writer) and decides to follow in her footsteps.
