Proofs have just arrived for a FANTASTIC book that we’re publishing next February: The Farm Beneath the Water by Helen Peters, the sequel to the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted The Secret Hen House Theatre. And today, for the first time, you can read the opening chapters!
Hannah’s farm is facing a new threat – a water company wants to flood the land to make a reservoir. How can she stand by and watch as the land her family has farmed for generations, and the wildlife, all disappear under a deluge of water? Hannah won’t go down without a fight, and the school play might just be the answer… When the going gets tough, the tough take to the stage!
The book has all the same hallmarks as its predecessor: great writing and an emotionally engaging, entertaining narrative. It’s PERFECT for 9-12 year olds who love a brilliantly-told story.
