KingBones Cover C

Everything with Words would be delighted to send you a free copy for your school library of King Bones by Chris Hallatt Wells or Notes on my Family by Emily Critchley. We will be sending out ten copies of each book. So be quick and contact Mikka[at]everythingwithwords.com putting the name of the book you would like to receive in the subject line. Both authors would also be happy to visit your school and talk about creative writing - visits are free but the school will be expected to pay travel costs. Both authors are London based but will travel a reasonable distance!

King Bones is a humorous fantasy. When Danny's parents are sent to prison fro stealing the crown jewels, Danny is sent to live with his evil Aunty Ratbag. But then with King Bones he embarks on an amazing adventure with an army of skeletons.

'Quirky, fun, ingenious and infused with humour this adventure starts with one fantastic robbery and ends with another. The black and white illustrations are entertaining, witty and help to move the story along. It is well written and will help the reader to improve their own story telling skills.' The School Librarian.

 'The characters burst from the page, the plot never lets up pace.' Helen Fielding, author of Bridget Jones's Diary. For children age nine and up.

Notes on my Family is for YA, longlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2018. An account of a dysfunctional family seen through the eyes of a narrator with Asperger's. 

'Very funny and the voice of Louise as a narrator is brilliant. A funny and uplifting read.'  The School Librarian.
