Maharaja Icky is quite the most disgusting King you’ll ever have the misfortune to meet. The ruler of the kingdom of Icktapur regales all with his utterly vile table manners. 

While he sits licking curry from hand to elbow and juggling rosogullas, his beloved nail-nibbling queen Maharani Yucky, joins him. Banned from using spoons or nail cutters, the people of Ickhtarpur are at their wits’ end. But their hopes rise when the announcement comes that the Maharani is expecting a little baby...

With gleefully gross illustrations by highly acclaimed children’s illustrator Anitha Balachandran, Icky, Yucky, Mucky! will have children squirming in their chairs and yelling with delight. And perhaps, learning a lesson or two in table manners!

Rishabh the rat and Shashee the spider are quite happy with the way they are: rummaging around in Venkat Thatha’s wonderful, musty, dusty, rare herbs shop. Until, that is, they stumble upon a magical powder and find themselves transformed into human children.

It’s not easy being a kid: there’s school, and homework, wearing clothes and — yuk! — having to use soap… but even worse, their very home and the entire city are under threat from an evil moneylender and property dealer known as the Shark.

Can Rishabh solve the cryptic clues that lead to King Kempe Gowda’s fabulous treasure before the Shark can get to it? Will the vermin survive Ajji’s herbal pesticide attack? Will Shashee be able to spin her way out of this tangled web of intrigue?

With the help of other children, friendly cockroaches, cheeky mosquitoes, a very Big Bandicoot and a platoon of plucky rodents, they set out to prove that no problem is too big even for the smallest of creatures.

“These are exciting times for children, with fiction such as Monideepa Sahu’s Riddle of the Seventh Stone — a unique take on ordinary events and creatures that we take so much for granted, things that get extraordinary in her gifted hands.”

The thrilling sequel to Payal Dhar's A Shadow in Eternity.

It's MADRAS in 1910. Poesy and Tilly are caught in a scandal that will change their lives forever. Singing and dancing across a hundred stages as members of a troupe of Australian child performers, called The Lilliputians, they travel by steam train into the heart of India. But as one disaster follows another, money runs short and tempers fray. What must the girls do to protect themselves and how many lives will be ruined if they try to break free?

Based on a real historical incident, award-winning writer Kirsty Murray tells a tale of intrigue and skullduggery, of friendships made and betrayed, set against the heat and dust of a lost Empire.

The Lilliputians is not only a gripping adventure story, but a vividly imagined historical novel, that will enthrall young readers and take them on an unforgettable journey back in time...

“This captivating historical story will take you back to a different era and completely immerse you in the travels and troubles that happen on tour. Kirsty Murray has done a great job bringing the childrens’ tale to life!”—Hannah Mariska

In the land of eighteen tides, where three rivers meet, deep inside a mangrove forest near the Bay of Bengal, there lived thousands and thousands, maybe even gazillions, of honeybees, ruled by the Bee Goddess.

The bees filled their honeycombs with rich, golden honey - liquid light, some called it - until it ran down trees like rivulets of sunshine. All the animals and birds loved it, but one person loved honey more than anyone in the world: a little spiky-haired boy called Shonu.

One day, driven by hunger, Shonu breaks the honey-hunters' golden rule and sets off into the forest. Will he find the honey he so loves? Or will he be caught by He-Whose-Name-Must-Not-Be-Taken, the mighty and terrible Demon-Tiger?
