These Are A Few Of My Scariest Things by Brandon Robshaw 
Illustrated by Jane Eccles 
(2017) A5 64pp pbk. 
ISBN 978 1 909548 72 5

Prepare to be chilled! Prepare to be thrilled! Prepare to be scared, prepare to be nightmared! Ghosts, werewolves and things that go "bump!” in the night are all to be found within these haunting pages. Eerie buildings and unexplained happenings are all part and parcel of the author’s strange world. If you love to be scared out of your wits, you will love this book. In addition you will hear strange tales of déjà-vu, meet headless ghosts, a lovesick goblin, and, of course, bats, bats and yet more bats!  Be warned though: whatever you do, don’t start reading these poems when you are all on your own at home in a darkened house at night. Don’t be tempted to read it by torchlight, under the covers at midnight, when witches are abroad. Once you turn these pages, there’s no going back! You might hear footsteps slowly coming up the stairs… but no, whatever you do, don’t turn round… whatever it was making that noise… it’s BEHIND you!

Brandon Robshaw is the author of 26 children’s books, both under his own name and under pen-names. He may be better known to you as the dad in BBC2’s Back in Time for Dinner, Back in Time for Christmas and Further Back in Time for Dinner.

Great Aunt Fanny's Moustache Potty Poems of Facial Fur
by Gez Walsh, illustrated by the author
November 2014, A5, 64pp., pbk.,

A "POTTY POETS" BOOK

He's back! And this time, it's potty! Gez Walsh, the original Potty Poet, and some would say still the best, has hit the bookshelves again this autumn with his first new collection for some considerable time, GREAT AUNT FANNY'S MOUSTACHE. Gez, who burst onto the children's poetry scene in 1997 with THE SPOT ON MY BUM, saw that book go on to sell almost half a million copies in seventeen years, and still counting. Originally written to stimulate his own dyslexic son to read, THE SPOT ON MY BUM has engaged countless thousands of children who would otherwise have been reluctant to read "ordinary” poetry books because they failed to engage with their "boring” subject matter. Well, you won't find any hosts of golden daffodils in Great Aunt Fanny's Moustache (the book, not the actual facial fur – to be honest, that probably has got things growing in it, at least from the description in the title poem) Gez has returned to his roots, to what Ian McMillan, himself a renowned poet and host of BBC Radio 3's The Verb, once described as "the language of the playground, of the top deck of the bus...” The subject matter is the usual preoccupations of the kids who will read these very poems: teachers, school, embarrassing parents, pet hamsters, being dumped by your girlfriend/boyfriend, and treading on cowpats, to name a few. Not to mention, of course, aunties who really need a shave. This is Gez Walsh's ninth Potty Poetry collection, and his fans will see that the rapid fire rap and the humour that drives so much of his quest to bring literacy to reluctant readers is as undiminished as ever. So, if you're not sure if you are potty-trained, grab a copy of Great Aunt Fanny's Moustache and immerse yourself in its weird wacky world, to find out what all the fuss is about!

Kyle Franklin and the Knights of Heaven by P. A. Keen
(November 2014) 6.875in x 4.25in, 379pp., pbk.,

Kyle Franklin is not an ordinary kid. He lives with his Gran, for a start. He's always on his computer - what kid isn't?- but he's not playing games or chatting, he's researching his family history. A chance encounter online with a real life distant cousin sparks off an adventure, when he goes to visit her and finds himself introduced to some rather strange people. People who almost seem to possess... supernatural powers? But that's not all. As he learns more about his new friends, he discovers that they are locked in some sort of primeval struggle with the eternal powers of evil. A struggle in which he too, now, has unwittingly become involved, as has everyone he cares about. This startlingly original children's thriller is Pat Keen's first novel and deals with themes of alienation, loss, and the constant battle between good and evil as seen through the eyes of those caught up in that titanic battle.
