It’s May publication day!

We’ve all got an extra spring in our step – our May titles are published today! And what a selection of books they are…

It’s publication day for Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam, written by Tracey Corderoy, author of our Hubble Bubble series, and brought brilliantly to comic life by debut artist Steven Lenton.

Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam are two hapless robber dogs who decide on a career-change after one bungled burglary too many – there’s plenty of laughs, lots of fantastic detail, and PILES of cake in this wonderful picture book. Here’s a look inside:

Three new fiction titles are released out into the world today, their faces all scrubbed and with clean hankies in their pockets.

The next Vulgar the Viking adventure, Vulgar the Viking and a Midsummer Night’s Scream, by the always-hirsute Mr Redbeard (and he knows who he is) is another hilarious tale of mayhem and mischief, as Vulgar is forced to partner Princess Freya in Blubber’s traditional midsummer maypole dance. No way is that going to go smoothly. In fact, it turns into a night the village will never forget. After all, it’s not often you see a small Viking dancing around a maypole in furry pants… Here’s a look inside:

And it’s a DOUBLE publication day for Paula Harrison. The sixth Rescue Princesses title, The Rescue Princesses: The Lost Gold is out today. Can Princess Isabella save the baby monkey who’s been trapped by hunters in the rainforest? With the help of her friends and her ninja moves, of course she can! Here’s the first chapter:

And the first in Paula’s new series, Faerie Tribes, comes out today. Faerie Tribes: The Crystal Mirror is an exciting, absorbing story for 9+ readers who love their faeries dark and mysterious. When Laney discovers that she has faerie powers and – best of all – she can fly, she little realises the dangerous forces that are at work around her, and how crucial a role she has to play in saving the faerie realm from evil… Faerie Tribes is a brilliant new series – we’re delighted and proud to Paula’s publisher.
