Here are a few of the fantastic books from this series available now at the library.


The Egyptian Princess: In 1490 BC Asha, daughter of King Tuthmosis lives a carefree life at the royal court in Thebes. But when a prophecy foretells that 'a young woman will prove to be the best man in the Two Kingdom' she's caught up in a world of plots and danger.

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping next to it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael's world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything. Soon Raphael and his friends Gardo and Rat are running for their lives. Wanted by the police, it takes all their quick-thinking, fast-talking to stay ahead. As the net tightens, they uncover a dead man's mission to put right a terrible wrong. Three street-boys against the world - can they win?

Bookseer is great. hppt://
It’s for kids and parents and anyone who reads. The front page asks you to type in what you’ve read lately that you like and within a click of a button books lists are revealed on similar books. You can click on the books and sometimes it will provide a review but sometimes it will take you to a site where you can purchase the books. Ignore it – just go for the lists and you never know we may just have some of them in our library. I already have heaps of ideas of what to read next just by putting in my favourite books. See link
