A truly original debut novel from an extraordinarily talented new voice in children´s books. Laugh, cry and wonder at this race-against-time story of a boy who travels back to 1984 to prevent a go-kart accident and save his father´s life.... My dad died twice. Once when he was 39 and again four years later, when he was 12. The first time had nothing to do with me. The second time definitely did, but I would never even have been there if it hadn´t been for his ´time machine´.... When Al Chaudhury discovers his late dad´s time machine, he finds that going back to the 1980s requires daring and imagination. It also requires lies, theft, burglary and setting his school on fire. All without losing his pet hamster, Alan Shearer.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Assad Zaman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hcuk/002275/bk_hcuk_002275_sample.mp3.

´´When I first saw Max Random, he was driving his go-kart right at me. He was also wearing goggles, so it was hard to tell if he was dead or alive. I was pretty sure, though, that zombies didn´t know how to drive. ´´´Not dead,´ Max said, as he stepped out of the kart to look at me. ‘You should get in.´” And so, weeks after watching her principal try to chew up her school teacher, and minutes after she´d just lost her family, 12-year-old Aurora Bonsall begins her odyssey of escape with Max Random in his hand-built go-kart across a ruined map of abandoned studio back lots, wrecked shopping malls, encounters with the not-quite dead in hospitals and the not-quite tame when they meet a feral cat. All while realizing that surviving humans can be far more dangerous than the Nano-Z´s taking over the world. Max, meanwhile, keeps driving them toward a rendezvous where he says they will be safe. But as Aurora discovers he has secrets of his own, she wonders if there can ever be any escape at all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Luna Cross.

Back to the Future meets The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in this original, poignant race-against-time story about a boy who travels back to 1984 to save his father´s life. My dad died twice. Once when he was 39 and again four years later, when he was 12. On his 12th birthday, Al Chaudhury receives a letter from his dead father. It directs him to the bunker of their old house, where Al finds a time machine (an ancient computer and a tin bucket). The letter also outlines a mission: travel back to 1984 and prevent the go-kart accident that will eventually take his father´s life. But, as Al soon discovers, whizzing back 30 years requires not only imagination and courage but also lying to your mom, stealing a moped, and setting your school on fire - oh, and keeping your pet hamster safe. With a literary edge and tons of commercial appeal, this incredible debut has it all: heart, humor, vividly imagined characters, and a pitch-perfect voice. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Mann.

The maddest 12 months of my life. The journey starts with an oddball race up an American mountain and ends with me checking myself out of hospital with a broken back. Again... As Guy Martin´s grandfather, Voldemars, frequently reminded him, ´´When you dead, you dead´´. So, before it´s all over, Guy Martin is making the most of the time he’s got. In this past year alone, Guy has raced the Isle of Man TT and finished on the podium; bike trekked through India; competed in solo 24-hour bicycles races; flown a stunt plane; broken a go-kart speed record down a French mountain; and dusted himself off after a dramatic crash at the Dunrod 150 Superbike race. And he’s done all this around his day job as a truck mechanic. But let Guy tell you about it himself: ´´This book starts in a Transit, ends in a Transit, and in between I’ve raced a few pushbikes, raced a few motorbikes and got a fair few stories to tell you´´.

Growing up in 1970s Suffolk in a crumbling giant of a house with wild, tangled gardens, Alex Monroe was left to wreak havoc by invention. Without visible parental influence, but with sisters to love him and brothers to fight for him, he made nature into his world. Creation became a compulsion, whether it was go-karts and guns, crossbows and booby traps, boats, bikes, or scooters. And then, it was jewelry. From full-out warfare waged against the local schoolboys to the freedom found in daredevil bike antics to the delicacies of dressmaking and the most intricate designs for jewelry, Two Turtle Doves traces the intimate journey of how an idea is transformed from a fleeting thought into an exquisite design. It is about where we find our creativity, how we remember, and why we make the things we do. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Devereaux.
