Accidental fires, villainous grown-ups and a mission to rescue a very grumpy goat – don't miss the hilarious second Orphans of St Halibut's adventure from Sophie Wills, illustrated by the million-copy bestselling David Tazzyman. Perfect for fans of Roald Dahl and Lemony Snicket.

St Halibut’s has burned to the ground, but there’s no time to mope. With the sinister Ministry of FUN – Forms, Underlining and Notices – on their case, the rag-tag bunch of orphans must make a new home, and protect it from those who want to smash it (and them) to smithereens.

But their tight-knit family is unravelling: Tig and Stef can’t see eye to eye, and all Herc can think about is cooking the perfect marshmallows.

Worst of all, just when they need her sharp horns and unpredictable temper most, is Pamela giving up the fight?

Side-splitting mischief, big trouble and a spectacular cast of quirky characters – dive into the hilarious world of the The Orphans of St Halibut's: Pamela's Revenge.
