A Plan to Hatch

The Southern coast of Cornwall is a very special place, with magic in the seaweed and a smile on every face.
Each pebble is a wish, and covered cleverly by the tide, there are caves in secret places, where the smugglers used to hide.

Meet Megan the singing Cornish Sea Piskie who lives at Polpeor Cove, right at the very tip of The Lizard Point as she and her friends hatch a plan to protect three rare chough eggs from some meanies.

Blue Jackal and other tales from Islamic lands: Audiobook

The Blue Jackal and other tales are stories that children would hear from their parents and grandparents, each storyteller relating his or her own version. In this beautifully illustrated hardback book, these fables are re-told in a simple language that children can understand and enjoy.

First written down more than 2,500 years ago in an ancient Indian language called Sanskrit, these and other stories were included in a book called the Panchatantram fables. From India, travellers carried the stories to Iran, and then on to the Arabic-speaking world, where they formed part of a book called Kalila and Dimna.

This audiobook is narrated by Timothy Knapman.
