Introducing The Al-Eden Emergency, the cracking third instalment in S.P. Moss’s series of retro-style adventures. Our hero Billy is on a school trip, visiting the British Museum, when once again, he slips back in time and joins his grandad for a good old-fashioned dose of derring-do and dastardly deeds. As in the previous books, The Al-Eden Emergency features classic aircraft and cars from the mid-20th century as well as some jolly good chaps and a couple of thoroughly bad eggs.

It’s 1966 and Billy’s RAF officer Grandpop is something hush-hush in the Ministry of Defence. All eyes are on the port of Al-Eden, a hothouse of rebel activity. As soon as Billy lands on its barren rocks, he’s thrust into a storm of intrigue. He discovers: a secret terrorist organisation led by the enigmatic “Scorpion”, Al-’Aqrab, a stolen astrolabe linked to a mysterious prophecy, an aircraft carrier sailing on shark-infested waters and a good friend who’s being held against his will – or is he? Meanwhile, an old enemy is closing in. Can Billy crack the puzzle before his cover is blown?

“Al-Eden” is a fictitious place, but is inspired by Aden, where the author lived as a small child in the 1960s. Fans of the previous books, as well as any 10 - 13 year old who enjoys breathtaking adventure, will be thrilled by this tremendous tale!

HIS DARK MATERIALS IS SOON TO BE AN HBO ORIGINAL SERIES STARRING DAFNE KEEN, RUTH WILSON, JAMES McAVOY, AND LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA!

The modern fantasy classic that Entertainment Weekly named an “All-Time Greatest Novel” and Newsweek hailed as a “Top 100 Book of All Time.” Philip Pullman takes readers to a world where humans have animal familiars and where parallel universes are within reach.

Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal—including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.

Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want.

But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other...

A masterwork of storytelling and suspense, Philip Pullman's award-winning The Golden Compass is the first in the His Dark Materials series, which continues with The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.
