The second book in our Macaw boxes this month is the wonderfully inventive Oddity by Eli Brown. Here the author tells us more about what inspired the book and it’s brilliant cast of characters, plus which fantasy books with historical backdrops he recommends you read next.
Our Macaw subscribers faced a tough choice this month between two highly original and thought-provoking books, including the Costa Children's Book Award-shortlisted Maggie Blue and the Dark World. We asked author Anna Goodall to tell us all about what inspired the book and which fantasy books for young readers she would recommend you turn to next.
This month our Cockatoo subscribers are on a thrilling, magical adventure with Kip and his friends in The Ten Riddles of Eartha Quicksmith. Here we quiz author Loris Owen on what inspired the book, her favourite fantasy reads and, most importantly, who she would want on her team in a quest.
