Quantity:



One hot, lazy summer's afternoon, young Alice is drowsing on a grassy bank, idly pondering upon daisy-chains. To her utter surprise, she witnesses a waistcoated White Rabbit flash past, fretting over his lateness. Interest piqued, she follows him down a rabbit-hole - and ends up falling headlong into a bizarre and wondrous land... Encountering peculiarities from a pipe-smoking caterpillar to a grinning Cheshire cat, a lachrymose Mock Turtle to a decidedly odd tea-party (not to mention the rather disquieting fluctuation of her own size), Alice must rely on her wits to navigate this strange world - and face down the murderous tyranny of the Queen of Hearts...

One cold November afternoon, Alice occupies herself playing with a little black kitten, holding her up to the looking-glass and telling her stories about the strange mirror-room on the other side. When the glass begins melting away like a bright silvery mist, Alice promptly jumps through and into the Looking-glass House... Once again, she finds herself travelling through a peculiar land, where curious creatures abound - portly brothers Tweedledum and Tweedledee, squabbling over a rattle; a Lion and Unicorn fighting for the crown; and the Red and White Knights, battling over Alice herself...

Arthur has travelled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colourfully insulted more than is strictly necessary. And of course Arthur Dent has comprehensively failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. Arthur has finally made it home to Earth, but that does not mean he has escaped his fate. Arthur's chances of getting his hands on a decent cuppa have evaporated rapidly, along with all the world's oceans. For no sooner has he touched down on the planet Earth than he finds out that it is about to be blown up...again.

And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), vampire Bill Compton.

Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. She has only a few close friends, because not everyone appreciates Sookie's gift: she can read minds. That's not exactly every man's idea of date bait - unless they're undead; vampires and the like can be tough to read. And that's just the kind of guy Sookie's been looking for. Maybe that's why, when she comes across a naked vampire, she doesn't just drive on by. He hasn't got a clue who he is, but Sookie has: Eric looks just as scary and sexy - and dead - as ever. But now he has amnesia, he's sweet, vulnerable, and in need of Sookie's help - because whoever took his memory now wants his life.

To Andy and his parents, it looks like any other carnival: creaking ghost train, rusty rollercoaster and circus performers. But of course it isn't. Drawn to the hall of mirrors, Andy enters and is hypnotised by the many selves staring back at him. Sometime later, one of those selves walks out and rejoins his parents - leaving Andy trapped inside the glass, snatched from the tensions of his suburban home and transported to a world where the laws of gravity are meaningless and time performs acrobatic tricks. And now an identical stranger inhabits Andy's life, unsettling his mother with a curious blankness, as mysterious events start unfolding in their coastal Irish town...

Arriving at their new rural home, five siblings - Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane and the Lamb - set to exploring the surrounding countryside.

But, as everyone knows, wishes always harbour a sting in the tail - and the five must face up to and deal with the unforeseen and highly alarming consequences of their desires...

When Cyril, Anthea, Robert and Jane's bright idea of testing their fireworks in the nursery grate results in cross parents and a burnt carpet, the children think that's the end of it. But when the new carpet arrives and is unrolled, a mysterious object falls out - a peculiar stone egg - which, when it topples into the fire, glows and cracks open... It's surprising enough to have a phoenix hatching in your house. It's even more startling when it begins to talk. And it's astonishing for it to tell you that the carpet on your floor is actually a magic one...
