Take a look inside The Monster in the Lake

In January we’re excited to be publishing The Monster in the Lake, written by Louie Stowell and illustrated by Davide Ortu – the funny, exciting, action-packed sequel to The Dragon in the Library. And today we’re sharing a preview of the book – you can read the first few chapters below!

Kit is a wizard. The youngest wizard in the world, in fact. But her magic keeps going wrong, and all kinds of weird stuff has started happening – exploding fireballs, animals talking when they shouldn’t be, and a very strange new arrival in a nearby park. So Kit and her two best friends – along with their local librarian – set off to investigate, and to save the world… again.

Here’s a look inside the new book:
