All Walker wants is a dog, but his mother is allergic. So he decides to set up his own business walking everyone else’s. This works better than he could have imagined when he finds he can talk to the dogs and understand what they say to him! The dogs lead him to a terrible puppy farm hidden in the wood by Arlington Wherewithall, a famous TV star and owner of a pet food company, the richest man in their area.

Mo, Lottie and the Junkers cover reveal

We are very happy to present the cover for Mo, Lottie and the Junkers, the first book in an exciting new series by Jennifer Killick, publishing on 18 April. Irresistible comic sci-fi about new families, moving across the street, solving a mystery and saving your friend.

Mo Appleby’s ordered life is turned upside down when he and his mum move in with his new stepdad and stepsisters, Lottie and Sadie. The home he left behind is just across the street, and there’s something not quite right about the new occupant. Other strange new people keep popping into his life, too: a bonkers lollipop man and a boy called Jax, who seems to understand Mo better than anyone else, especially Lottie.

Who are the weird new people in their town? Do they have any involvement in the disappearance of Mo’s dad many years ago? And why does the ice cream taste so good? Lottie is determined to find out exactly what’s going on, even if it makes Mo mad, and even if it leads them both into serious danger...
Mo, Lottie and the Junkers is publishing on 18 April and has been selected for The Reading Agency's Summer Reading Challenge 2019
Book cover illustrated by Gareth Conwy and designed by Kathryn Davies.

Summer of No Regrets cover reveal

Four friends pledge to make their summer regret-free but will it be that simple? An uplifting and diverse YA novel from exciting new author Kate Mallinder, publishing on 2 May. Many thanks to CHCC YA Fest for the cover reveal! 

After their exams, four sixteen-year-old best friends pledge to live a summer regret-free, taking risks however much it scares them: Sasha agrees to spend the holiday in Geneva, with the father she hasn’t seen for six years, but is not expecting his new girlfriend, or the boy in the cafe. Shy homebody Hetal decides to go to science camp, and has to find a new competitive spirit. After Nell lost her arm in an accident her mother is scared to let her out of the house – so to do what she wants she will have to lie to her parents. Fostered Cam goes to look for her birth father. What will she find? As all these choices become difficult, even dangerous, they will need each other for the strength to face the future.

Kate Mallinder lives with her husband, four children and a grumpy cat near Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire. She grew up in Solihul and went to college in Leeds. She wrote this book as part of her own ‘no regrets’ pledge, along with trying to surf, which didn’t go so well. If left to her own devices, she’d live on a window seat with a good book and a never-ending cup of tea. Summer of No Regrets is her first book.
Kate will be appearing at CHCC YA Fest in London on Sunday 12 May. 
Book cover designed by Anne Glenn.
