Eloise has always loved Joan of Arc. Noble, honest and brave, she was everything Eloise wishes to be. And on a bright sunny day in Orleans, Eloise has a very special daydreamâ¦. A superb reimagining of Joan of Arc by master storyteller and author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo. âThere was only one creature on this earth who really knew Joan. He was a sparrow, just an ordinary sparrowâ¦. He was her best friend on this earth, maybe her only friend, too.â A young girl faces an impossible task - to save her beloved France from tyrants. To free her country, Joan will lose everyone she has ever loved. But she listens to her heart and believes in her calling. Through patience, perseverance, and unbreakable spirit, Joan of Arc leads armies to victory and finds the strength to face the cruellest of destinies.

Bubbling with magic, fun, friendship and new heights of adventure. Emily Windsnap, an ordinary girl on land and a magical mermaid in water, is overdue a break from excitement - as her exhausted best friend, Shona, keeps reminding her! So, promising Shona she'll stay free of trouble and just 'swill out' ('chill out' for mermaids), Emily invites her best friend and her boyfriend, Aaron, along for a relaxing family holiday in the sun.... But it seems adventure is hot on her heels - and her tail. Soon Emily discovers a hidden world beyond the falls of mysterious Forgotten Island - but it's not quite the paradise it seems. With a curse hanging over the island and a catastrophic disaster looming, Emily finds herself suddenly entangled in an ancient prophecy. She must embark on a dangerous mission to seek the legendary giant the islanders believe will save them all, before it's too late. But how can Emily save the day when rifts are forming between herself and the very people she needs by her side? Must promises always be kept? And what happens when they are broken?
