Phantom Light by Jessica Wilkerson

Phantom Light by Jessica Wilkerson

“If you hold onto this world hard enough, you’ll get a grasp on it. But it will get a grasp on you, too, and you won’t be able to decide anymore that you’re ready to go.”

When Valerie Young wakes up from a horrific accident to a world gone gray and cold, she wants to believe anything but the truth of what happened. But as she struggles to accept the dreaded d-word, time is slipping away for her to move on to the afterlife. When she realizes her younger sister has been irreparably altered by the accident, Valerie must choose between a chance at peace and the cold reality of existence as a restless spirit.

Phantom Light is a prequel novella to the Phantoms novel series.

Children’s

Sacha Martin’s Rocket-Ship by John Nichol

Sacha Martin's Rocket-Ship by John Nichol

Thomai Dion, author of Think-a-Lot Tots Sascha Martin is eight years old, but he’s not your average Year Two schoolboy. He lives in the spookiest part of town near his best friend Luca and his not-friend Mary-Alice, and he invents amazing things in a secret lab beneath his room. Sascha’s first News of the year is a thumping great rocket that towers over everyone, including the teacher, and there’s a button on the side that says: “Don’t touch!” Well in a class full of children, that’s just a red rag to a bull, isn’t it? This maiden flight is a delicious journey into chaos as Sascha Martin’s Rocket-Ship crashes through buildings and roars into the skies above Landfill Public School with Sascha, two screaming teachers, an oven full of pies and a growing tail of books and toys and classroom equipment swept along in its wake. With beautiful illustrations by Manuela Pentangelo, and a foreword written by record-breaking rocketeer Sam Ridgway (the first woman in Australia internationally accredited to fly Level 3 High Powered Rockets), this is a book to surprise, delight and inspire both children and their parents. Sascha Martin’s Rocket-Ship is a wild, funny, deliciously silly adventure wrapped in rhyming verse and Manuela Pentangelo’s beautiful full colour illustrations. Flying pies meet screaming teachers high above Landfill Public School in this debut disaster featuring Sascha Martin, an eight-year old boy whose genius knows no responsibility.
