Truth About Martians
Mylo knows there’s no such thing as Martians – at least, until a flying saucer crash-lands next to his family’s New Mexico farm.
And then he starts to hear the voice, like someone’s trying to communicate with him, asking for help. Desperate to be as brave as his older brother Obie – who passed away over a year ago – Mylo has to investigate the crash. Along the way, he ends up discovering more about the universe than he ever could have imagined.
Hey, it’s May!
Yippee! Anyone off for a summer holiday yet? No, me neither. Never mind: instead, we’ve got two incredible titles lined up for your reading pleasure. Both of these books are genuinely special and unforgettable – not that we’re biased, or anything …
Melissa Savage is a writer and a child and family therapist. Her desire to write purposeful, issue-driven books for young people, coupled with her interest in cryptozoology and the mystery of Bigfoot inspired her to write Bigfoot, Tobin & Me. Melissa lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with her family.
Bigfoot, Tobin & Me
Lemonade’s mother named her for her favourite saying: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But now her mum’s dead. After relocating to her grandpa’s place in Bigfoot-obsessed Willow Creek, Lem meets Tobin. Quirky and determined, he’s the CEO of Bigfoot Detectives, Inc. and sole investigator for the town. Lem is reluctantly enlisted as his assistant. Together, they try to capture a shot of the elusive beast on film, but what they find is even more amazing.
A heart-warming adventure about friendship and overcoming grief by a stunning new voice in middle-grade fiction.
