Catch Your Death: Ruby Redfort, Book 3

Ruby Redfort, a child genius and code-cracking agent for the mysterious Spectrum, is not content with juggling her cryptography and her day to day activities as a normal thirteen-year-old.

Clarice Bean, That’s Me

The work of author/illustrator Lauren Child needs no introduction; the appeal of the wonderfully creative, Charlie and Lola books having travelled the globe in both print and film.

Typically the children get into a scrape, which they…

In Lauren Child’s fourth installment, Ruby must track down an invisible foe, but ‘How do you catch a thief that isn’t there?’ And Ruby’s been having trouble in the observation department. Missing those warning signs could get her killed. Feel the Fear is exciting and…
