W.A.R.P.: The Reluctant Assassin book trailer

The reluctant assassin is Riley, a Victorian boy who is suddenly plucked from his own time and whisked into the twenty-first century, accused of murder and on the run. Riley has been pulled into the FBI’s covert W.A.R.P. operation (Witness Anonymous Relocation Program). He and young FBI Agent Chevie Savano are forced to flee terrifying assassin-for-hire Albert Garrick, who pursues Riley through time and will not stop until he has hunted him down. Barely staying one step ahead, Riley and Chevie must stay alive and stop Garrick returning to his own time with knowledge and power that could change the world forever.

If you could time travel where would you go?

Books can make you wonder what it would be like to live in a different time and place.  Some stories are set in a particular time in history or are about a historical event.  The My Story books are great because they take you back to a specific time in history and let you know what it was like to live in that time, through the diary of a boy or girl who lived then.  They show you the sights, sounds, and smells of that time period, which is quite different from ours.

If you could time travel, what time would you like to visit or what event would you like witness?

Move over Zac Power, here comes Battle Boy and Space Scout

If you are obsessed with the Zac Power books you need to read this!  There are two new series that have just started  that are perfect for you if love Zac Power and we’ve just got the first few books in the series. 

Battle BoyBattle Boy is a new series of books, written by Charlie Carter, about BB005 (whose real name is Napoleon) who gets sent back in time to spy on some of the greatest battles in history.  Equipped with some cool gadgets and top-secret information, Napoleon must go back in time and set the record straight.  If your children like spy stories, history stories or adventure stories these books are for them. 

Space ScoutSpace Scout is another new series that’s written by the author behind Zac Power, H. Badger (or H.I. Larry as we know her).  The books are about Kip Kirby and his co-pilot, Finbar, who are scouting the universe for a new Earth that they can call home.  Like the Zac Power books, there are lots of cool diagrams and gadgets throughout the book.  Kip and Finbar journey to weird planets and meet all sorts of weird alien creatures.   There’s also a really cool Space Scout website to check out so you can find out some more information about the books and play games.

You can borrow the first few books in both series from your local library now or if they’re not available you can always request them.
