Cupcake Zombies, by Ziazan

'Are you actually blogging all this?'  

Of course I am. People need to know what's going on. This isn't publicity for Ferdinand's Fairy Cakes any more, it's a first hand, minute-by-minute account of a historical event in the making.


A strange illness is spreading through Bullerton, and the only people unaffected by it are the only ones not to have eaten any of Dulcie's cupcakes. Can three young women, a cat, a food blog and a shopful of fairy cakes save the day?


After learning that cupcakes and zombies were the most popular subjects of books sold in 2012, Ziazan decided to leap shamelessly on both bandwagons at once, and this is the result: a blend of horror, humour, romance and life-saving recipes in one short, bitesized novella.

The Pirate Queen and the Kingnapped King, by Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian

The King of Suffolk has been Kingnapped! Music, magic, the goodwill of our children, and a Pirate Queen are needed to bring him home.


A delightful opera for time-travelling children that sings the songs of kidnapped kings through history. From Richard the Lionheart to Martin Luther King, from Sayat Nova to the Tsar of Russia, the Pirate Queen weaves music and magic from their songs. This is the book of the show.
