Keep an eye out in February 2016 for the most exciting release for the new year!

Squishy Taylor is a new series for all young readers featuring the brave and relatable Squishy (real name Sita, aged 11). Along with being a solver of problems and mysterious mysteries with a daredevil flair for anything ninja-esque, Squishy has a big heart with a soft spot for anyone needing help.

Perfect for ages 6 and up, Squishy Taylor is a compelling series with storylines which include appropriate and age relevant decision-making. Squishy is also from a mixed race background, and is part of a blended family. The first book deals with her new step-sisters who go from 95% annoying (and 5% really, really annoying) to something much more positive – bonus-sisters!

This new series comes from the awesome talent Ailsa Wild (who wants to run away from the circus to become a writer), with illustrations by superstar Ben Wood.

Stay tuned for the release of the first two titles in Feburary 2016 – Squishy Taylor and the Bonus Sisters and Squishy Taylor and a Question of Trust.
