Our Parakeet subscribers are in for some magical surprises this month withThe Marvellous Granny Jinks and Meby Serena Holly. Serena Holly is in fact the pen name for the series creator Jasmine Richards and writer Sareeta Domingo. They are passionate about creating stories that delight readers and reflect the world. We talked to Jasmine to find out more about the Marvellous Granny Jinks!
An Alien in the Jam Factory has it all - aliens, jam, doughnuts, snails, one dastardly and very dodgy villain, and one brilliant kid fizzing with ideas that will save the day! It’s a hilarious adventure, brilliantly illustrated by Jenny Taylor. We quizzed author Chrissie Sains on what inspired the book and which illustrated chapter books for younger readers she thinks you should read next.
