Yesterday Crumb and the Storm in a Teacup by Andy Sagar - Teaching resources and competition!

Adventure and magic await in every teacup!

Welcome to the enchanting world of Yesterday Crumb, a young girl with fox ears who has never fitted in. Taken in by flamboyant tea witch Miss Dumpling, Yesterday is introduced to a magical, walking teashop filled with fantastic customers, a flying teapot turtle called Pascal and powerful spells in every teacup!

Yesterday starts to rediscover her magic and finally feels a sense of belonging. But a mysterious figure of darkness is working hard to ensure her new life comes crashing down – and it all starts with a deadly shard of ice in Yesterday’s heart…

A whimsical tale of hope, found family and most importantly, tea, Yesterday Crumb and the Storm in a Teacup is perfect for fans of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency and Starfell. And remember – there’s nothing that can’t be solved with a pot of tea, a slice of cake and a BIG dash of magic!

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...
