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.

              If you were charmed by The Curious Incident, laughed with Eleanor Oliphant and cried over A Man Called Ove, you will love Ricky Bird. 'No one loved making forts more than Ricky. A fort was a place of safety and possibility. It shut out the world and enclosed her and Ollie within ...any story she wanted to tell ...' Ricky Bird loves making up stories for her little brother Ollie almost as much as she loves him. The imaginary worlds she creates are wild and whimsical places full of unlimited possibilities. Real life is another story. Ricky's father has abandoned them and the family has moved to a bleak new neighbourhood. Worse still, her mother's new boyfriend, Dan, has come with the furniture. But Ricky Bird is a force to be reckoned with. As the mastermind of so many outlandish plots, imagination is her best weapon to restore her world to rights. As her father used to say, if you can spin a good yarn you can get on in life. Ricky knows that better than anyone but despite her best efforts everything in her world starts to spiral out of control. Until a gypsy prediction that someone will come along - a he or a she who is like a gift - comes true. But no one, not even Ricky, could imagine the consequences. Beautifully written, heartbreakingly funny and deeply moving, this book has already been compared to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Lost and Found, Shuggie Bain, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and A Monster Calls. But Ricky's story is all her own - and it will stay with you long after the last page.
