An action-packed, highly illustrated fantasy for 12+

Readers will be gripped by this thrilling new adventure series with cartoon-style illustrations

We are so excited about this new fantasy series, which is inspired by African mythology and perfectly picthed for fans of Percy Jackson. Plus it is highly illustrated with graphic novel-style illustrations throughout, making it perfect for more reluctant readers too.


Cursed with a weird name and an illness to match, Koku thinks life can't get any worse - until he unleashes a demon on a school trip. He expects detention, but instead he's hurled into an impossible quest filled with MAGICAL TRIBES, MAN-EATING MONSTERS and VENGEFUL MERMAIDS.

When an ASSASSIN is sent to hunt him down, Koku's only hope is to team up with a clumsy shapeshifter and a moody warrior-in-training. Together they enter the JUJULAND JUNGLE, a place filled with DANGEROUS SECRETS.

Can Koku discover his own power, before it's too late?

Maria Motunrayo Adebisi graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in English Literature, although she currently works in tech. On graduating she realised that she wanted to write a novel that would speak to children straddling British and African identities and make them proud of both.
