My Brother Bernadette
A heart-warming tale of a little boy with big ideas, My Brother Bernadette is written by international best-seller Jacqueline Wilson for Egmont’s red banana series.
Sara always gets lumbered with looking after her little brother Bernard. And summer project at the local school is no different. There’s so much to do – football, judo, trampolining, model car making, computer games and drama.
But all Bernard wants to do is clothes design. Soon all the kids are calling Bernard ‘Bernadette’ and shoving him around. Sara wants to help but she doesn’t want to make it worse. But ‘Bernadette’ is a little boy with big ideas. And he has a plan up his very nicely designed sleeve.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent siblings. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky.
Following the mysterious death of their parents, the internationally best-selling A Series of Unfortunate Events follows the orphans as they find themselves in less than desirable conditions.
In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Be warned, there is nothing to be found in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events but misery and despair.
