Silenced

Caroline Green

Simon Packham

Who do you trust when your whole life is a lie?

Speak no evil . . .

Cal’s world splinters apart when he finds out he’s been in a deliberately induced coma state for most of his life, and what he thought was real was only an illusion.

Chris needs to talk, but he can’t. He lost the power of speech completely when his best friend, Declan, died in a car crash.

Escaping his captors, Cal goes on the run, determined to fight the forces behind the nightmare he finds waiting for him in the real world, and to discover his true identity. A tense and gripping thriller where nothing is as it seems, from a talented new author whose writing cuts straight to the bone – spiky, uncompromising and deeply moving.

Also by Caroline Green:

As months pass, school friends give up on him and only eco-freak Ariel and a suspiciously friendly new boy, Will, are left. While Will encourages increasingly dangerous ways for Chris to forget Declan, Ariel realises her silent friend is hiding something. But what is Chris’s terrifying secret? And will he find his voice before it’s too late? Packham’s deft handling of teen drama and emotions is as impressive as ever in this superb exploration of grief and loss. Also by Simon Packham:

Are You Sleepy Yet?

Who Loves Baby?

Adèle Geras & Sophy Williams

Julia Hubery & Sean Julian

A classic in the making

Putting sibling rivalry to rest

‘It’s time for bed now.’ ‘But I don’t feel sleepy . . . and I think Mouse should go to bed first.’ ‘I’ll sing him a mouse’s lullaby: You’ve scurried about among the leaves, among the leaves the trees have shed. Come home, little mouse to your little mouse house. Sleep through the night in your little mouse bed.’

Baby’s asleep in his beautiful pram (at last). Mummy and me are snuggled up reading (but not for long). Oh-oh, here it comes: Ding-Dong!

And so the small hare and his parent start their bedtime ritual of saying goodnight to all the woodland creatures and little hare’s toys.

Fergus Goes Quackers

Bad Manners, Benjie!

Tony Maddox

Lynne Garner & Mike Brownlow

A sweet and fun farmyard story

A very funny way to learn about manners

Fergus looks after five lost little ducklings one night, but the next morning they are all waddling around saying ‘Woof!’ He chases after them, calling, ‘It’s quack! Quack! Quack!’

Boris has a new friend called Benjie. Boris really likes him, but he has some very odd habits. Benjie eats with his mouth closed and he even uses a handkerchief when he sneezes!

The other farm animals overhear and think it’s a new game – and soon everyone is making the wrong noise and driving Fergus quackers!

It’s not the kind of behaviour you expect from a troll at all . . .

‘A hilarious story guaranteed to get children chuckling. Beware – you may get asked to read it over and over again!’ Parents in Touch

Praise for Tony Maddox: ‘Large detailed illustrations will capture children’s imaginations.’ Baby & You
