Winnie fans will know that she’s a witch who’s going places. By broomstick, flying carpet . . .
even in a helicopter. But she’s never gone into space—until now. Join Winnie and the
long-suffering Wilbur as she waves her wand, rustles up a rocket, and zooms off to the final
frontier. And, as Winnie fans know, where there’s magic, there’s usually mayhem, so when
Winnie and Wilbur land on a planet inhabited by alien rabbits with a taste for metal, their
rocket—not to mention their chance of getting back home—is munched to smithereens.

Korky Paul’s stunning space-scapes are full of his characteristic attention to detail. Forget

This Spring Surrender to the Sizzle.

The first in an addictive trilogy about a teen girl who can shift into dragon form and her
dangerous romance with the boy whose family hunts her . . .

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for
freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred rule among her kind,
she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to
hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defence is
her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new
surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki
to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will’s dark secret: he and his
family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping
away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She’ll do anything to prevent that. 216x135mm
Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy. 288 pages

When Maya strays into the forest, she walks straight into a nightmare. It’s not just the horrific
discovery she makes among the trees, it’s what’s waiting for her at home. Something too
terrifying to believe in. She’s not even sure she believes it herself. Perhaps she’s going mad—

anything in the forest after all?

And there’s another question: what was she doing there in the first place . . . alone . . . at dusk?
All she knows is that the eyes of a fox drew her there.

They will do so again.

Whether you’re into science, history, art or film this is a book you will find
impossible to put down!

When a man walked on the moon it was the greatest adventure undertaken by the human
race. But what exactly was it that Neil Armstrong set foot upon? What was it made of,
how did it come to be there, and why was the achievement so amazing? Award-winning
author, Stewart Ross, looks at the moon from a variety of different perspectives; in science,
history, art, music, film, and religion.
