Congratulations to Jennifer Killick on a new book release

Congratulations to our author Jennifer Killick for the upcoming release of the latest instalment in the Alex Sparrow series.

Jennifer’s book, ‘Alex Sparrow and the Furry Fury’, the sequel to ‘Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink’, is due to be published on 1st May by Firefly Press. It picks up where the former book left off, with Alex bored and hoping for an exciting new mission.

Both we at Authors Abroad and Jennifer are delighted that ‘Furry Fury’ has been selected for The Reading Agency’s ‘Summer Reading Challenge’, taking place throughout the summer of 2018 in libraries across the country. The theme is ‘Mischief Makers’, which suits Alex and Jess perfectly…

“Catching the school’s runaway guinea pigs is not really giving Alex job satisfaction, but how can he find a bigger test for his and Jess’s awkward superpowers? Jess is more worried about the bullied new boy, whose Mum runs the local animal sanctuary. To befriend him she gets a voluntary job there, but she soon realises that something is very wrong; the animals are terrified. People start reporting strange events: things missing, property destroyed, and the local squirrels have turned mean. The police have no suspects. It looks more and more like a job for Agent Alex… ”

A recent student voiced how having a visit from Jennifer at his school was ‘even more fun than being at home with his dog’ – can there be any higher praise?
