Children's Book of the Month
A reason to read...
The first in a fun new series from children's author Jennifer Gray.
Trouble In New York - Jennifer Gray
Meet Ermine, a small stoat on a big journey. In fact, she's on a world tour and determined to fill her scrapbook with tales of adventure. Armed with her toolkit and feathered hat, Ermine arrives in New York to stay with Michael Megabucks and his son - and is soon fighting off alligators at Central Park Zoo and outwitting bungling diamond thieves! The first in a brand-new series in the best traditions of Paddington and Squishy McFluff, Ermine's travels are full to the brim with adventure, derring-do and a whole host of fabulous characters.
Meet the Author & Illustrator
Jennifer Gray lives in London and Scotland with her husband, four children and friendly but enigmatic cat. She has written the bestselling Atticus Claw series, the first of which, Atticus Claw Breaks the Law, was the Red House Children's Book Award Winner (Younger Readers Category) 2014 and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Jennifer has also written the Chicken Mission and Guinea Pigs Online series, co-written with Amanda Swift; she combines writing with her work as a practising barrister. Like Ermine, Jennifer loves to travel: unlike Ermine she doesn't own a feathered hat.
Illustrator Elisa Paganelli lives in Italy with her husband and two dogs, and can't resist the smell of paper, pencils and the magic of books. She loves planning new adventures and has her sights set on Japan!
