Don’t read this book.
Not if you want to maintain your protected status as an ignorant human.
The truth wouldn’t make any sense, anyways. It would just melt your brain, cause you to involuntarily assume the fetal position (and mumble things about butterflies and rainbows), turn you into a depressed and colorful pile of goo, and make you wish you were a dung beetle.
You’ll definitely be happier with your current idea of what’s real, and no one likes to be a pile of goo, no matter the color. Believe me, I’ve asked several former-humans-now-piles of goo.
Hopefully this is enough to dissuade you from reading further. Actually, I would wager three nacho-flavored jackalopes that you’ll stop reading this book description right now.
If you’re still reading this, I have one question for you?
You should have moved on to another book already. Haven’t I been clear? Turn back now, while you still have a choice. Once you read this book, and you find out the truth about …
… them …
… they will hunt you and they will find you. You won’t even know you’ve been ensnared by their magic.
You will never be the same.
And you may end up like James Peters.
5 years after his father disappeared, James was still puzzled. The authorities had pronounced his father dead months after he’d vanished, but James knew he was still alive, he could feel it in his bones. It’s just that no one believes a 13-year-old.
Then, someone turned up …
… someone James had forgotten.
He was the only person around when James’ dad vanished, and the guy doesn’t want to have anything to do with James. But there’s more.
Weird things happen around the man.
Things that shouldn’t.
Things that look an awful lot like magic.
Will James figure out what happened to his father? Or will he end up suffering the same fate?
If you purchase this book to find out it may be the last sane thing you ever do.
Get it now.
But don’t say you haven’t been warned.

As a 12-year-old, would you like to lead a space mission with three other kids, and no adults?
This was the situation Sophie Williams found herself in. Having lost her dad a couple of years ago, she decided to try to make him proud and go for it.
It is 2068 and Space Command has been sending astronauts to distant planets for many decades now. However, no child has ever been into space, and they need to understand how children will cope.
After a relentless application process, Sophie is thrilled to be chosen to lead the mission.

The children knew they would be the first kids in space, but they had no idea their journey would turn into the greatest adventure in human history.
This uplifting story inspires children to believe they can accomplish things that adults can only dream of and overcome the greatest of challenges. It provides us all with hope.
“This is the perfect read for kids and adults like. It was fun, inspiring, and especially empowering for young girls with dreams of doing something big with their life.” 4/5
Ariel – TheBookView.com, book blogger,
“It made me feel really happy that middle-grade books nowadays are inclusive and not just in a way to add supporting characters from marginalised sections. 5/5”
Alex – The shadow girl, book blogger,
“The author’s creative juice drips from every single page. If it could excite a full-grown adult like me, I’m very sure that the children would find it the same way. 5/5”
Siddharth C, Book reviewer
“I wanted to show my boy that the stars and science and tech in general are the future and can be a massive source of inspiration and ambition for him. A side benefit was reinforcing that a woman (well, girl in this case) is just as likely to be the leader as any man. He loved the story, absolutely enticed even though there were some tricky concepts for a 6 year old to understand. But he got the gist of it and most of all just couldn’t wait to hear the next problem the kid team would come up against and how they managed to solve their way through it – offering his own thoughts along the way too of course. 5/5”

A beautifully illustrated book, with a magnificent story that children and tweens will love.
Babushka wants to find out the meaning of life so she sends her bodies out of the forest and into the world to search for answers.
WHAT IS A BABUSHKA?
The babushka doll, also known as a matryoshka or Russian nesting doll, is a traditional Russian toy first made over 100 years ago. The doll has come to symbolise Russian folk culture, as well as the complex and beautiful layers of women. Babushka dolls are made of wood and painted in bright colours and patterns. Each babushka is comprised of many round dolls, each a little smaller than the last. They separate at the middle so that each doll can be placed inside the one before it. There are some babushka dolls with as many as fifty dolls nested inside. This is the story of one very special babushka doll and her five bodies.
There was the outermost body, Antonia. She was pure beauty. Everyone who saw her admired her good looks. Beneath that body of beauty hid Loretta, who was richly adorned. She wore gold ornaments, and her green robe was decorated with many different gems that glittered like the ocean on a sunny day Hidden within the rich body was Paula, the body that held all Babushka’s talents. Whatever Paula did, she was sure to succeed. She knew how to work and always did so with joy and determination. Within the talented body was Viola, the body of wisdom. Viola knew a lot about the world and learned very quickly. She was always full of brilliant ideas and had clever solutions for every problem. The last body, the smallest of all, was Mary, the embodiment of love. Mary had a warm and compassionate heart and was very helpful. She could dry tears and mend broken hearts.
Reading this book, your child will learn about:
– The value of friendship and love.
– That financial wealth alone cannot make someone happy.

Jupiter is a 12-year-old nerd and hacker with mostly online friends. She hacks using the handle, White-Rabbit. Then one evening, comes a lightning storm to end all storms, a storm that zaps the computer, freeing computer-gnomes. The gnomes escape the computer and surround Jupiter where she sits at the study desk. Using magic, the gnomes turn her into a tiny, digital girl and shove her through the lens of the camera and into the monitor.
Now, Jupiter is lost inside the computer, in a digital world filled with dangers, a world that has a gateway to the internet where a digital girl could get duplicated and spread across the world-wide-web onto tablets, cellphones, videos, and well, cyberspace.
Oh, heavens, the technology to turn a human being into a digital being is valuable and everyone seems to want a piece of Jupiter, including hackers who use avatars from the Wizard of Oz!
How will she ever escape back to her world and become a real girl again?
Time is running out as Jupiter struggles to break free of her prison.
Digital Girl is a bit like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, only Wonderland is the computer.
Digital Girl is a bit like Through the Looking-Glass, only the Looking-Glass is the monitor.
A shrunken Jupiter falls down the camera hole rather than down the rabbit hole.
