              A crumbling castle, a moat full of crocodiles, a catastrophe of kittens, and let's not forget the villains and the mummies! This rambunctious story has it all. It's England, 1873. When 12-year-old Hatshepsut (Hattie) Lambton's guardian is unfortunately eaten by a crocodile, Hatti...e is sent to live with hitherto unknown relatives: Great-uncle Sisyphus and Great-aunt Iphigenia, in their half-ruined castle in mysterious, mist-shrouded marshes. Hattie discovers Great-aunt Iphigenia is an Egyptologist who conducts Mummy Unwrapping Parties at the houses of wealthy clients. The Parties are managed by her two assistants, the sinister (and, to Hattie, highly suspect) Edgar and Edwina Raven. Soon, a problem arises. It has become illegal to export mummies from Egypt. The solution? To set out on a one-thousand-mile voyage up the Nile, to acquire - and illegally export - mummies for the Unwrapping Parties. There, Hattie makes a friend, Amal, who has problems of her own. Already, Hattie has had doubts about whether it is Right to destroy the bodies of ancient Egyptians. But there's no way the Ravens will allow the Unwrappings to be discontinued. They have a nice little racket set up. They threaten Hattie - and Great-uncle Sisyphus. Hattie knows they're serious. Dead serious. Back in England, Hattie finds herself on a desperate dash to a famous London museum, with a very special, heavily disguised Egyptian mummy in her arms. And the Ravens hot on her trail. Will her quest to preserve the mummy's eternal existence in the after-life be successful?

Twelve-year-old Henrie is the first girl heir of the Melchior family in 200 years. This was deemed a dereliction of duty by the formidable Octavia Melchior, head of the Hou...se of Melchior (HoMe). For HoMe is in the business of heroes for hire. Boy heroes, that is. Girls have no place. When Henrie receives a mysterious note, it sets off a chain of events including a kidnapping, a fancy skateboard manoeuvre and a private jet and she discovers something rotten at the heart of HoMe. As past, present and future collide, HoMe is poised to come tumbling down ... unless a new kind of hero can emerge from the rubble.

It's 1979 and the sky is falling. Skylab, that is. Somewhere high above Frankie Avery, one of t...he world's first space stations is tumbling to Earth. And rushing back with it are old memories. Things twelve-year-old Frankie thought she'd forgotten. Things her mum won't talk about, and which her little brother Newt never knew. Only ... did he? Does he? Because as Skylab circles closer, Newt starts acting strangely. And while the world watches the sky, Frankie keeps her own eyes on Newt. Because if anyone's going to keep him safe, it's her. It always has been. But maybe this is something bigger than splinters and spiders and sleepwalking. Maybe a space station isn't the only thing heading straight for calamity.
