“Cool stuff, don’t miss ’em in October!” Read it Daddy reviews Junior Fiction titles

Phil and Charlotte who write as an epic team for Read it Daddy have reviewed our brand new junior fiction titles! Here’s what they had to say:

“Bringing together some of the brilliantly talented authors and artists who have worked on Maverick’s winning Picture Book range, these are books designed for the 6 to 9 year age group, attractively formatted with awesome covers and illustrations […] Cool stuff, don’t miss ’em in October!”
