Back Home Audio Book Released

We are delighted to announce that a new audio version of Back Home has just been released by Puffin Books narrated by the author Michelle Magorian.

In At The Deep End Available In Swedish

In At The Deep End published by Barrington Stoke is now available in Swedish. Here’s a review by Agneta Warheim for BTJ which is a Swedish Library Journal (with thanks to Maria at Argasso publishers for kindly translating to English).

“A very good portrayal of Ben’s development during his long swim. Going into the pool he’s an insecure boy dependent on the approval of his tough friends, who never show up, but as he leaves it he does so with a new-found confidence. Ben is quick to judge the older woman, Betty, but his view changes throughout his ordeal, as she becomes a moral support for him.

The easy-to-read text describes Ben’s thoughts and feelings in an excellent way and it’s exciting to read on to see if Ben will succeed in swimming all the laps alone. A splendid book for reluctant readers.”
