One of my favourite middle-grade writers Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars
When eleven-year-old Georgie befriends an eccentric retired scientist, she becomes the test subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual-reality 3D version of the future.
But then a deadly disease threatens the life of every dog in the country and Georgie’s beloved dog, Mr Mash, gets sick. And that’s only the start of her troubles.
Soon, Georgie and Mr Mash must embark on a desperate quest: to save every dog on earth, and maybe even all of humanity
without actually leaving the room.
An extraordinary quest with the biggest stakes of all, and a huge idea at its heart, this is time travel but not as you know it.

Everyone’s favourite mad-cap, band-obsessed, super-doodler Tom Gates is back in a brand new, fully-illustrated instalment, the 15th episode in the bestselling series by author and illustrator Liz Pichon.
This book contains: – MONSTERS – MYSTERY – A MUSIC FESTIVAL – MISSING stuff – ME and Marcus (Not necessarily in THAT order). AND a very strict supply teacher – but don’t let that put you off!
Here at Waterstones we’ve been huge fans of Tom Gates antics since we awarded the series opener, The Brilliant World of Tom Gates, the Waterstones Best Fiction for 5-12s Prize.
Since then we’ve followed Tom and his doodles through homework disasters, genius ideas, super skills and expert excuses, not to mention endless packets of biscuits (yum).
