A Clock of Stars: The Shadow Moth by Francesca Gibbons and illustrated by Chris Riddell - a digital pack

Clock of stars flat cover

It’s time to enter a magical new world.

Imogen should be nice to her little sister Marie. She should be nice to her mum’s boyfriend too. And she certainly shouldn’t follow a strange silver moth through a door in a tree. But then… who does what they’re told? Followed by Marie, Imogen finds herself falling into a magical kingdom where the two sisters are swept up in a thrilling race against time. Moving fast to escape the monsters that come out after dark, and longing to return home, they find help from the spoiled prince of the kingdom, a dancing bear, a very grumpy hunter – and even the stars above them…

Featuring all the magic of Narnia and the humour of Mary Poppins, this is the first book in a landmark trilogy from HarperCollins Children’s Books.

Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
