Joshua Frost age 16, is paid by British Intelligence to do what he believes is one of the easiest jobs ever. Every weekend he even gets free flights to countries all around the globe. All he has to do is steal the information his fellow passengers have stored in their brief cases, take photos of it and send it to the agency. All Mafia members and crime lords are weaponless on planes, and besides, who would suspect a teenager anyway. But Josh soon realises that the work may be more dangerous than he thought when the young criminal mastermind he stole from on his last flight from Paris, ends up enrolling at his Oxford Boarding school.

Churches are not always the best places to learn about the love of God. Some Christians seem to be almost afraid that someone might get into the Kingdom of God who shouldn’t be there and they act as God’s gatekeepers to make sure you understand the serious requirements and ongoing obligations. It seems such a shame when the Father (for that’s what we are told to call him by Jesus) is outrageously even scandalously careless about who he invites. Hence this parable about buttons…. - a story for children.
At the Southern tip of the land of Cathenia, the great River Serpantine surges through the lush City of Cathos, home to Alya, the beautiful new apprentice to the Chief Priestess, Gabriella. Having never left the peaceful city, or known anyone else to do so, Alya often wonders what lies to the north. Yet with the demands of her new role, her passion for the ancient martial art, ‘Sythe’ and her lonely mother living nearby, her prospects seem bound to the city. Yet just one month into the rulership of the young King Manose, a challenge befalls the land, unlike any seen before. When the beloved river Serpantine falters and with it, communications throughout the kingdom, Alya finds herself part of a select expedition group, entrusted with a vital mission. She must journey to the source of the Serpantine River, high in the Galaticus mountain range, in the hope of restoring the waters to shining glory. As concerns heighten of a mysterious, toxic river plant and buried emotions surface, along with unexpected danger, can Alya overcome her greatest challenge? Can they restore the life-blood to the land?
The giant Grandgouzier knows nothing of the origin of his early ancestors when he takes the throne of Utopia. His sage, Alcofrybas, is led to an underground cavern where the secret is stored, and the nobility of the line of giants is established. Grandgouzier's son, Prince Gargantua, grows from a food-addicted infant to a learned, wise, fun-loving and adventuresome giant in his ripe teens. With his squad of special friends and courtiers, Gargantua is suddenly recalled from afar to defend his father's kingdom from attack by the snivelling Picrochole, an equally gigantic neighbouring ruler, whose excuse for invading Utopia is among the most ridiculous pretexts for war ever imagined. The exploits of the prince and his lieutenants, especially the intrepid Friar John, bring the conflict to a just conclusion. (The author, David Duke-Evans, has reconstructed these episodes in an expurgated format from the old French chronicles of François Rabelays. The story's rumbustious characters are added to the library stock of older children in a sympathetic and humorous manner fitting for an intelligent juvenile age-group, and the book is intended as the first of at least a trilogy).
This children book is inspired by my sister Jade, who is disabled. It gives insight on her as a person and how she see the world. My book is to help a child courtesy on things and to give my sister a voice.
