We are thrilled to be chatting with YA author Clare Owen whose first young adult book, Zed and the Cormorants, is released this week. Zed and the Cormorants is set near Lostwithiel, so we couldn't wait to learn more about this stirring gothic debut that's been described as 'a Daphne Du Maurier for the 21st century'.
With Halloween creeping up round the corner, we felt there was no better time to share some of our top children’s and young adult books that coincide perfectly with autumn. Here, you’ll find a mix of spooky tales, monsters, witches, magic and pumpkins to pull you deep into the season. From middle grade fiction to young adult, there are plenty of books here to choose from that’ll make you feel perfectly swept away in the world of magic, autumn and all hallows’ eve from some spectacular authors.
