This hilarious picture book about the perils of bedtime makes the perfect present for dad this Father’s Day. How can a little girl put her daddy to bed when he doesn’t want to go? In every household with children, from the moment that bedtime is announced until the light is finally switched off, bedtime is full of fun and frustration, puns and procrastination. Time for Bed, Daddy flips the fun on bedtime, celebrating the special relationship that fathers share with their children.

A gripping YA action thriller that’s great for fans of Cherub and The Last Thirteen. Fero isn’t a spy. But he looks exactly like someone who is: Troy Maschenov, a ruthless enemy agent. But what starts as a case of mistaken identity quickly turns into a complicated and dangerous plan. Fero is recruited to fight for his country. He will have to impersonate Troy, enter enemy territory, hunt down a missing agent and bring her home in time to prevent a devastating terror attack.

Launch: Fearless with Dadwritten by Cori Brooke and illustrated by Giuseppe Poli (book here!)
