Cathy s Book
When 17-year-old Cathy wakes up one morning to discover a needlepoint near her elbow, her mother is typically suspicious and worried. But Cathy has other ideas and quickly puts them into action. In pursuit of her missing boyfriend (who she feels must be linked to the strange mark on her arm) she starts piecing some startling facts together which lead her into the dangerous underworld of San Francisco's China Town. Throughout her findings, Cathy keeps a secret journal and gathers many items of evidence as well as telephone numbers and websites - leaving it all for her friend Emma to find should Cathy go too far and not come back. All this evidence can be found, integrated into the book and also available to download online. Readers who fully explore this compelling and unique novel, will enter an alternate reality as they reach deeper into the thrilling mystery of Cathy's world.

Tom Gates is Absolutely Fantastic at Some Things
This takes the form of Tom's battered homework diary - crammed with his doodles and stories. "Exciting News! Mr Fullerman announces that class 5F are going on an 'Activity Break'! Which should be fun. As long as I don't get stuck in a group with anyone who snores or worse still with . . . . . . Marcus Meldrew. Delia is already threatening to paint my room funny colours while I'm away. Which is annoying. I just hope the only surprise I have when I get home is the new pet that I hear Mum and Dad talking about. Because I've always wanted a pet!"

But on the other hand, Mr. Keen has asked Dogzombies to perform in front of the whole school! YEAH! Maybe they can even play at the school dance, too. How can the term turn out any less than seriously amazing? Follow Tom on his third set of cheeky and doodle-tastic adventures in this Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning series!

Best Book Day Ever So Far
This is crammed with Tom's stories and doodles. "It's BOOK WEEK in Oakfield school and EVERYONE is very excited. Including all the teachers, who are making costumes of their own. Mr Keen says there's an EXCELLENT prize on offer for BEST costumes worn on BOOK DAY. So suddenly making a good costume is VITALLY important, but tricky and Delia's not much help (as usual). Then Marcus decides that HE is a super hero and can't understand why 'Super Marcus' isn't the best name."
