The Wundersmith is here!

Return to the magical world of Nevermoor! Morrigan Crow's perilous adventures continue in the most anticipated sequel of the year, Wundersmith, a treat for all fans of magic and Wunder. 

Wunder is gathering in Nevermoor ...

Morrigan Crow may have defeated her deadly curse, passed the dangerous trials and joined the mystical Wundrous Society, but her journey into Nevermoor and all its secrets has only just begun. And she is fast learning that not all magic is used for good.

Morrigan has been invited to join the prestigious Wundrous Society, a place that promised her friendship, protection and belonging for life. She's hoping for an education full of wunder, imagination and discovery - but all the Society want to teach her is how evil Wundersmiths are. And someone is blackmailing Morrigan's unit, turning her last few loyal friends against her. Has Morrigan escaped from being the cursed child of Wintersea only to become the most hated figure in Nevermoor?

Worst of all, people have started to go missing. The fantastical city of Nevermoor, once a place of magic and safety, is now riddled with fear and suspicion...

QBD Readers our raving about our Children's Book of the Year, Nevermoor!

"If you’re a fan of Harry Potter or Alice in Wonderland you will love this book. Adults and children alike will love the story of eleven year old Morrigan Crow, cursed to die on her eleventh birthday but instead was saved by a man named Jupiter North and taken to the wonderous world of Nevermoor where she has to prove that she is worthy to stay and not go back into a world that she cannot live in." - Jordanna, Chadstone QBD

Morrigan's cursed existence fades into memory with a family of her choice as she learns more about herself and the world around her than she ever expected. A great read for kids and big kids alike. Nevermoor and its fabulously strange characters will enchant you like nothing else. "- Caitlyn, Canberra QBD

"Nevermoor is the first in a new series destined to have you desperate for the next book! Like Alice in Wonderland with the quirkiness of Roald Dahl, I was hooked on Nevermoor from the first page. Magical!" - Coreena, Morayfield QBD

Kids Review: Simon Sidebottom 01: Funny Thing Happened To Simon Sidebottom

Check out this fantastic letter from an amazing young reviewer - Felix!

8 year old Felix enjoyed our May Kids Book of the Month, A Funny Thing Happened To Simon Side-Bottom, so much that he wrote us this fabulous letter to tell us all about it.

A Funny Thing Happened To Simon Sidebottom (Review by Felix) "I read it seven times in the first week. I found it funny. The thing I liked best about it was I got to choose what came next, also I got him in a loop. There's lots and lots of problems a kid like Simon can get into."

About the book: 

It is the final day of school holidays and the only thing Simon Sidebottom wants to do is enjoy his last hours of freedom. But Simon's mum has other plans, and they all involve shopping for school shoes with Simons snotty faced little sister. And then a funny thing happens... A hilarious, gross, laugh out loud, choose your own adventure book.

A Funny Thing Happened To Simon Sidebottom is book one in a new series by P. Crumble & Dean Rankine. Get your copy at your local QBD store today!
