As someone who believes sharing the love of reading with children affords them a lifelong pleasure, I’m delighted to be revealing the cover of a brand new middle grade children’s adventure series by Jemma Hatt. The Adventurers and the Cursed Castle is book one in Jemma’s The Adventurers series.
Here’s more about the book:
The Adventurers and the Cursed Castle
A mysterious curse has stricken Kexley Castle for generations ever since Egyptian treasure was transported to Cornwall by a 19th Century explorer.
Can four young adventurers reveal the secrets that have been hidden for over a hundred years?
Join Lara, Rufus, Tom and Barney in their first exciting adventure together as they unravel the mystery and race to find Captain Jack Kexley’s hiding place.
To succeed, they must discover and solve a series of clues left by their ancestor, ahead of two unwelcome visitors from the British Museum who are determined to get there first!
Doesn’t that sound brilliant?
The cover design is by Andrew Smith whose website you can visit here.
