Some Books You Might Like To Try

Hi everyone - I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year... It's amazing how quickly this year is starting to speed by - it's February already.

So far I've been busy working on my big book about a pirate and also working on ideas for little books and a book that I will be writing in April about a strange, mad (perhaps evil) scientist called Dr Sallamander. 

Before Christmas I write a very little story called the Big Match - only about 500 words so not very long at all... but here's the cover of the book (I was only shown this yesterday so you guys are some of the first in the world to see it) 

I'd love to hear what books you are reading right now so please let me know and I can share them here with everyone... but here's a couple of books I've read recently that you might like to look out for - you might already have them in your school or they might be at your local library...

If you like Star Wars then you are sure to like the Star Wars Adventures in Wild Space Series - written by a great author called Cavan Scott and has a few illustrations by David M Buisan. The Wild Space series follows two young characters,  Milo and Lina Graf after the kidnapping of their parents by the evil Empire... In this book, the children fly to an Ice Planet in the hope of finding their missing parents but fall into a trap that's been set for them by Captain Korda...

It would be good to read the books in the right order so that you can follow the adventure, but each one is a story on it's own. The Cold is book 5 but it makes perfect sense so dig in and enjoy the excitement of a Star Wars tale in a galaxy far, far away...

The second book that I'm going to recommend to you today is Attack of the Alien Dung by an excellent author called Gareth P Jones and illustrated by Steve May. Gareth's story is funny and Steve's artwork adds to the humour very well. This book is one in the Pet Defenders series and I'm sure you will love it...

A Top Secret organisation of pets is all set to protect the world again alien invaders from outer space. The only problem is... the Humans must not find out about them. Luckily, the animals have a lot of things to help them... including memory erasing seagull poop that can be dropped on any human that sees anything out of the ordinary.

In this story, secret agent Biskit (a dog) is not happy when he discovers that his new partner is Mitzy - a cat. A cluster of cow pats have flown into town and they're whipping up a stick (not to mention the huge dung beetle that is eating and destroying everything in its path. It's up to Biskit and Mitzy to work together to 'kick some alien butt'.
