A charming adventure story by Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson. Every giant knows beanstalks and little persons don’t exist. Almost every giant, anyway . . . When Jumbeelia’s curiosity leads her to a real-live bimplestonk at the edgeland of Groil and down, down, down into Colette, Stephen and Poppy’s lives, the children find themselves in BIG trouble! How will the three iggly plops ever get home? In The Giants and the Joneses Julia Donaldson has created a page-turning larger than life adventure, turning a fairytale on its head. That Jack was so wicked, climbing a beanstalk to steal everything from the hen to the harp to some money. Julia has long been a household name thanks to her raft of best-selling picture books, and this tale is idea for readers who have enjoyed The Gruffalo as a young child.

Or is it something or someone far more sinister? The Hundred and One Dalmations is an all-time classic children’s book.

Indiana Jones has landed his first teaching post, in the archaeology department at London University. His brightest—and prettiest—student is a twenty-year-old Scottish girl, Deirdre Campbell, who claims she’s uncovered a golden scroll, proof of the true existence of Merlin, sorcerer of myth and legend. Indy’s intrigued by the thesis . . . and by Deirdre. So, too, is member of Parliament Adrian Powell. He’s seeking to resurrect the ancient order of the Druids, whose secrets of power could pave his way to world conquest. But first he needs the scroll . . . and he’s willing to kill to get it. Where there’s magic, mystery, and murder, Indy goes to the head of the class. Dropping his books and picking up his bullwhip, he joins Deirdre on an action-packed chase across Britain, from the peril-filled caves of Scotland to the savage dance of the giants at Stonehenge—where Merlin’s secret will finally be revealed. But not before Indy gets a lesson in love from Deirdre . . . and a lesson in hate from a maniac who means to rule the world.
