A laugh-out-loud riotous caper with an energetic rhyming text, and strategically placed flaps to protect Ned’s modesty.

“Put some clothes on! Get dressed now! Ned, don’t you be so bold!” Ned’s mum and dad were not impressed, But Ned would not be told.

Ned leapt across the sofa, And raced into the hall. Then charged out through the front door, With nothing on at all!

People screamed and hid their eyes, With deep-pan pizza crusts. Ned skidaddled through the door, And ran to catch a bus.

Transcendence C.J. Omololu What if your past became your future? The rules of time are no match for destiny in this suspenseful love story. You won’t be able to put it down! Cole fears she’s losing her mind. While visiting the Tower of London, she has an overwhelmingly real vision of a centuries-old beheading. Lately, everywhere she goes, everything she touches, triggers vivid scenes of a time she doesn’t know, in a place she’s never lived. When Griffon sees Cole that day in London, he knows immediately that she is special, like him – that her visions are memories of past lives. And he is sure their paths were meant to cross in this life . . .

With Griffon’s help, Cole will realise she is Akhet – people who use the wisdom they have gathered over centuries of past lives for good. But not all Akhet are honourable; a rogue is after Cole to avenge a shared past she barely remembers. Piecing together clues from many lifetimes, Cole discovers a secret that could ruin her only chance at a future with Griffon – a future they are destined to share. What if risking his love is the only way to save them both?
