This January we are beating the back to school blues with two fabulously funny middle grade books!

First up we have a very exciting new series, St Grizzles School for Girls, Goats and Random Boys. The series is written by non-other than Karen McCombie and illustrated by the brilliant Becka Moor.

St. Grizzle's School for Girls, Goats and Random Boys

7-9 Years | RRP £5.99

Whilst her mum studies penguins in the Antarctic, eleven-year-old Dani is being packed off to a strict girls’ boarding school. But Dani and her mum arrive at St Grizelda’s to discover there’s been a drastic change of teaching style. Gone are the rules and in their place is chaos, craziness and, er, a goat. Can St Grizzle’s win Dani over?

Next up is the brand new Beaky Malone book from Barry Hutchison and illustrated by the wonderfully quirky Katie Abey.

Beaky Malone: Worst Even School Trip

8-11 Years | RRP £5.99

It’s been 92 hours since Beaky last told a lie. So far he’s survived two full days of school... but the annual school trip is going to take Beaky’s survival skills to a whole other level – especially as Beaky is partnered with Wayne, a.k.a the school bully, who has a morbid fear of clowns. Worse yet, a mix up in the school office means that Beaky and his class are on a trip to Learning Land, the world’s worst theme park.

For the chance to win both books, simply answer the following question:
