Online, WebinarJam

Saturday, 27th Feb


Join us as we visit Eerie-On-Sea and return to the Grand Nautilus Hotel with Lost-andFounder Herbie Lemon and his friend Violet in the sequel to Malamander. Meet the author Thomas as we go on an exploration of Eerie - what will we find today?

Recommended Ages: 9+

Thomas Taylor is an award-winning author-illustrator for children. He illustrated the cover for the very first Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and has since gone on to write and illustrate several picture books and young novels. Gargantis is the electric sequel to Malamander, the eerie seaside adventure that has taken the world by storm; bought in a frenzied eight publisher auction and sold in 16 languages to date. Full of quirky characters, mysterious legends, and peculiar happenings, this is a series that will have you hooked from the moment you arrive in Eerie-On-Sea.
