Timothy’s Big Adventure

Timothy's Big Adventure

Have you ever wondered how exciting a tortoise’s life is? What exciting things might a tortoise get up to, if it disappears behind a bag of potatoes in the garden shed?

George lived with his parents in a small cottage, miles away from anywhere. Since he was too young to go to school, he spent his days playing in the garden with Timothy, his pet tortoise. George never realised what incredible adventures his pet might have, slowly lumbering around the garden.

Read “Timothy’s Big Adventure” and find out how this little tortoise crawled behind a bag of potatoes, fell into a void that led into another universe and then encountered the most amazing adventure.

Sometimes, the most extraordinary stories can occur in the most unlikely places!

Jack and the Space Pirates

Jack and the Space Pirates

Jack lives and works on EM-05, a steampunk space station found on a major trade route between Earth and Mars. He spends his days tarring the insides of frigates and galleons, as they stop for repairs and supplies, on their way to the distant planets of the Solar System. There are very few other children that work on EM-05 and so it can get very lonely for Jack. However, he does have one close friend, an abandoned cat named Jet, and the two of them are inseparable.

Jack and Jet find that their lives are thrown into turmoil when a gang of space pirates steals a valuable galleon. The two friends are flung into an incredible adventure and Jack is forced to devise a cunning plan to return them both to their intergalactic home.

Jack and the Space Pirates is a beautifully produced children’s storybook, with lovely enchanting illustrations on every page.
