At Ever After High, an enchanting boarding school, the children of fairytale legends prepare themselves to fulfill their destinies as the next generation of Snow Whites, Prince Charmings and Evil Queens… whether they want to or not. Each year on Legacy Day, students sign the Storybook of Legends to seal their scripted fates. For generations, the Village of Book End has whispered that refusing to sign means The End – both for a story and for a life.

As the daughter of the Evil Queen, Raven Queen’s destiny is to follow in her mother’s wicked footsteps, but evil is so not Raven’s style. She’s starting to wonder, what if she rewrote her own story?

The Book With No Pictures – The Surprise Hit of 2014

Booksellers around the world all said the same thing.

A kids book with no pictures? That won’t take off.

And then this happened…

Suddenly it exploded. The Book with No Pictures was proclaimed the must have book for 2014, the surprise hit. So do yourself a favour, and…

BLORK

Well, you get the idea…

book-with-no-picturesThe Book With No Pictures

by B.J. Novak

This innovative and wildly funny read-aloud by award-winning humorist/actor B.J. Novak will turn any reader into a comedian.

You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .

BLORK. Or BLUURF.

Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.

Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige).

BJ-Novak-Reading-Book-Pictures-VideoAbout the Author

B. J. Novak is a writer and actor best known for his work on NBC’s Emmy Award winning comedy series The Office as an actor, writer, director and executive producer.

Unworldly and innocent, Ana is shocked to find she wants this man. And, when he warns her to keep her distance, it only makes her want him more.

But Grey is tormented by inner demons, and consumed by the need to control. As they embark on a passionate love affair, Ana discovers more about her own desires, as well as the dark secrets Grey keeps hidden away from public view…

Dystopian novel A Wrong Turn at the Office of Unmade Lists wins 2014 Most Underrated Book Award

A Wrong Turn at the Office of Unmade Lists by Jane Rawson has won the Most Underrated Book Award for 2014.

Announced at an event in Sydney last night, Rawson beat out Robert Kenny’s Gardens of Fire and Holy Bible by Vanessa Russell.


a-wrong-turn-at-the-office-of-unmade-listsA Wrong Turn at the Office of Unmade Lists

by Jane Rawson

It is 1997 in San Francisco and Simon and Sarah have been sent on a quest to see America: they must stand at least once in every 25-foot square of the country. Decades later, in an Australian city that has fallen on hard times, Caddy is camped by the Maribyrnong River, living on small change from odd jobs, ersatz vodka and memories. She’s sick of being hot, dirty, broke and alone.

Caddy’s future changes shape when her friend, Ray, stumbles across some well-worn maps, including one of San Francisco, and their lives connect with those of teenagers Simon and Sarah in ways that are unexpected and profound.

A meditation on happiness – where and in what place and with who we can find our centre, a perceptive vision of where our world is headed, and a testament to the power of memory and imagination, this is the best of novels: both highly original and eminently readable.
