Today we at Nosy Crow are celebrating (with cake, natch) the publication of three fantastic fiction titles.
Olivia’s Enchanted Summer is the fourth in Lyn Gardner’s highly acclaimed stage-school series. Olivia and her friends have taken a show to the Edinburgh Festival, where things do not run smoothly at first. But the show must go on and soon everything is fireworks and enchantment. It even stops raining. Congratulations, Lyn, on another show-stopper!
The second in the Rescue Princesses series by Paula Harrison is also out today. In The Wishing Pearl, our brave princesses have to save a wounded dolphin and find some buried treasure at the same time. It’s an action-packed adventure that will keep every seven-year-old reader on the edge of her seat (while maintaining perfect posture, of course). Congratulations, Paula, on yet more royal thrills and spills!
And last, but by no means least, comes Vulgar the Viking and the Great Gulp Games by the ever-hirsute Odin Redbeard. A topical one, this, as Vulgar prepares himself to participate in the greatest sporting challenge of the (Viking) age. There isn’t a goat he hasn’t hurdled over, a hammer he hasn’t thrown, and a walrus he hasn’t wrestled in readiness. Now the time has come, and Vulgar is really going for gold! Congratulations, Mr Redbeard, on another hilarious read, and to Sarah Horne, for so brilliantly bringing Vulgar’s antics to life.
Right. More cake, anyone?
