For fans of popular children’s author, John Townsend, and readers of thrillers watch out for his new novels coming this July! Dead in the Water and Peril in the Snow are filled with mystery and adventure and are fast-paced, gripping stories for 9-12 year olds.
Dead in the Water follows the story of Tyler, Blake and Maddie who are privy to some top secret information. With the event of a shark attack, a drowned oceanographer and secrets emerging from the depths of the sea, this novel will hook both boys and girls.
Peril in the Snow focuses on Hari, a lone boy out on a rescue mission through some hostile mountains. But it seems that tigers, wolves and the deadly ice might throw in some unexpected obstacles along the way.
John Townsend will be appearing at the Wessex Children’s Book Festival during the October half term 2015. With Never Odd or Even and The Secret Message among approximately 150 books written by the author, he has a well deserved reputation for ‘getting boys into reading’. With the festival’s range of fantastic activities and guests all aimed at supporting children’s reading, his appearance at the Winchester Discovery Centre for the festival is not one to be missed!
