Read an exclusive extract of Destiny Ink: Sleepover Surprise by Adeola Sokunbi

We’re very excited to be publishing Destiny Ink: Sleepover Surprise in June – a brilliant new highly-illustrated chapter book series from debut author Adeola Sokunbi.

And today we’re delighted to be sharing a preview of the book – you can read the first few pages below!

Destiny can’t wait to go for her first ever sleepover at her best friend’s house. But she also can’t help feeling a little worried … they’re going to camp outside in the garden – in a tent – but also in the dark! Destiny uses her trusty sketchbook to doodle her ideas and work through her worries. She even draws some monsters but that makes her feel a bit scared again, so she makes a tent in her room to practice in. When she goes to bed, she hears some noises from the tent and finds a monster inside!

But the monster isn’t frightening. He’s come for a sleepover but he’s not sure he’s ready. Can Destiny help him? After they try midnight snacks, dressing up and telling stories under the stars, Destiny realises there’s nothing to be worried about after all! The next morning, the monster has disappeared, but Destiny is more ready for a sleepover than ever!
