Konnie Cookie Book Cover.jpg

In her second brilliantly funny story, science-mad Cookie is ready to save the planet!


When Cookie finds herself with two tickets to see popstar Aliana Tiny, Suzie Ashby suddenly wants to be her best friend.


One small problem - Suzie is the most annoying girl in the world. UGH!


So how is that Cookie manages to fall out with her real friends Jake and Keziah and become best buddies with Suzie instead?


Can she win them back, ditch Suzie and save the planet in the process?

Excluded from school, Dylan is forced to move to a tiny village in Wales where his grandad lives.


With no Xbox or internet, life is looking pretty bleak, but when Grandad takes Dylan out on his boat to see the whooper swans, things begin to change.


Out on the water, free from all the pressure he’s been under, Dylan begins to feel like himself again.


But when the swans’ habitat is threatened and tragedy strikes at home, can Dylan keep going when it feels like everything is slipping out of control again?
